Janine Turner is finding a new sense of self down on the farm… er, ranch.
“I think you can work, work, work, but if you don’t take time to nourish your soul… I mean, gosh, I never had a love life,” Turner told Movieline magazine.
Turner, June Cleaver in the movie version of “Leave It to Beaver,” recalls the time that she wrapped shooting on the set of the television show “Northern Exposure” one day and then flew to Italy to commence filming the movie “Cliffhanger” the next.
“There are a lot of false notes about L.A. and the industry,” she said. “In Texas, with my horses and family and a boyfriend, I can be a much better person.”
That boyfriend, by the way, is Jerry Jones Jr., son of the guy who owns the Dallas Cowboys.
James Woods, on his role in “Hercules” being “the most fun I’ve ever had”: “Every time I went to work, it was like going to a birthday party. I would do the most outrageous things, and that’s what they used.”

The upscale restaurant’s tables and chairs were scheduled to be auctioned. Why do we need to know this? It was where Nicole Brown Simpson ate her last meal.
When it comes to movies, Paul, everyone’s a chicken
“Critics are really frustrated people who would like to do what you do, but nobody ever gave them the opportunity,” comic/actor Paul Rodriguez told Drama-Logue. “How many movies have I seen Siskel and Ebert in? Unless you’ve done this, you really shouldn’t be able to critique it. I know there are people who say you shouldn’t have to be a chicken to judge an egg, but wouldn’t you like to have a chicken tell you which eggs are the best? They know eggs, you know.”
