Guinevere Turner: Queen of the Shorts at Outfest 05
Multi-hyphenated Guinevere Turner, 37, is queen of the shorts at this year’s Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (Outfest 05). The actress-writer-director stars as a clairvoyant in Beyond Lovely, which screened last night as part of Outfest's “Funny Ladies” program.
Turner, in the business for more than a decade, broke through in the 1994 gay film classic, Go Fish, influenced Kevin Smith’s Chasing Amy and went on to co-write American Psycho and an upcoming film on ‘50s pinup Bettie Page. She gained a little more mainstream recognition through her work as a writer and actor for the first two seasons of Showtime’s "The L Word." (However, she won’t be back for season 3.)
LAist recently caught up with Turner, writing us back from somewhere in the middle of Slovenia.
