From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Guinevere Turner (May 23, 1968) is an American actress and writer. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts. She is a lesbian.

Amongst other recent films, she starred in the 1997 British BDSM/fetish comedy film Preaching to the Perverted as the New York dominatrix "Tanya Cheex".

Guinevere Turner and I Shot Andy Warhol director Mary Harron wrote the screenplay which ended up being selected for the film version of Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho. She has a brief cameo in the film, in which she delivers the in-joke line "What makes you even think I'm a lesbian?"

An early film Gwen starred in, for which she also helped produce with her then-girlfriend, Rose Troche, was called Go Fish. In the film, she plays a young woman whose friends help her in the lesbian dating scene. Director Kevin Smith was a fan of the movie, particularly a scene in it wherein, in an imagined sequence, some of a character's friends chastise her for "selling out" and sleeping with a guy, and used it as an inspiration for his rather unique take on a similar theme in his own film Chasing Amy. Turner later appeared in Smith's Dogma, in a small role as a bus clerk.
