Ever since her beginnings from Saved By The Bell to “Showgirls,” Elizabeth Berkley has been focused on her career, but was “Showgirls,” the now gay cult classic the right choice for Berkley back in 1995? Would her career as an actress been further along? We think it would have, to be honest.
Berkley jumped from the G rated TV show to a hard R, which was highly criticized and ridiculed by critics. Berkley over-acted as the desperate stripper turned Vegas show girl dancer. A large step for an actress coming from after school hit TV series “Saved By The Bell,” which is celebrated their reunion cover on People magazine. So what has Berkley been up to since the film “Showgirls”?
Well she just celebrated her 37th birthday on Wednesday and is looking towards the future.
Roll the post over……..
