JENNIFER BEALS (1963 – )                     

[On her lifestyle despite her fame as an actress]: ‘It’s been perfect. I can still ride a subway and work with great people. I can’t imagine being Julia Roberts. I don’t have the fortitude to withstand that kind of attention.’

‘I’m always shocked that gay marriage is such a big deal. You have to realize how precious human life is, when there are tsunamis and mudslides, when there are armies and terrorists – at any moment, you could be gone, and potentially in the most brutal fashion. And then you have to realize that love is truly one of the most extraordinary things you can experience in your life. To begrudge someone else their love of another person because of gender seems to be absolutely absurd. It’s based in fear, fear of the other, fear of what is not like you. But when you are able to see lives on a day-to-day basis, rather than reducing it to politics, then it humanizes a whole community of people that were otherwise invisible.’
