Jennifer Beals

Her role in 'Flashdance' (1983)
Many people don't know this about Jennifer Beals, but she comes from an interracial family. Her father is African American and her mother is Irish American. Her first breakout role was in Flashdance (1983) where she played a character with a duel identity. She was a steelworker by day and an exotic dancer by night. She was trend setter and her torn jeans in the film would go on to become a major fashion trend in the mid-eighties. All thanks to her. Soon she sank into noteriety as people began to question her dancing ability. Without her talent she seemed to be only a mediocre actress.She has a college degree from Yale for American English Literature. While at school she met her former husband of approximately ten years, Alexandre Rockwell. He's an independent film-maker who put her into many of his films including, In The Soup. Her family was well off before she began acting and while she was young she was neighbours with Regis Philman. She would often come over to his house as a babysitter. In recent years her career has starting to take flight.Source:

I'm just talking specifically of women's friendships. If two women go to a bar and they are fighting over men, it makes it much easier for the men. If two women are very close and they act as it makes it very difficult for the men to pull one over on anybody.More Jennifer Beals quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wouldn't want them to feel lonely or outcast ever in any way. And no matter where they were in the world, I'd want them to always feel incredibly confident about who they were and proud.More Jennifer Beals quotes [10/12/2011 05:10:01]
[About compassion] You can have the 'golden rule' do unto others as you would have others do unto you. But then you take it one step farther where you just do good unto others, period. Just for the sake of it.More Jennifer Beals quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whether it's that moment in acting when everything is suspended and you're not yourself, or breaking through the veil of a very long run or swim, or hearing my daughter laugh they are all pathways to what I think God must be.More Jennifer Beals quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
