I read Rich’s interview against my better judgment, and it seemed very obvious that Gina Gershon was getting annoyed with Rich fanboying over Showgirls. Of course he loves it, it’s a movie about women fighting with each other in a misogynistic way.
He kept bringing the conversation back around to Showgirls, and it irritated me to read. I know it’s one of her most famous roles, but I consider Bound to be one of her definitive films, and the movie that cemented her place in queer cinema and with lesbian fans. I even thought she was awesome in Face/Off in a girlfriend role that could have been forgettable, but she gave heart to.
Basically, Rich needed to stop talking about fucking Showgirls so much and to see Gershon as a real person, not Cristal Conners.
