    Default Jeanne Tripplehorn [actress]

    The recent Sharon Stone thread here got me thinking about Jeanne Tripplehorn, her costar in "Basic Instinct". For me, it was love at first sight when she came on screen. Just luscious. She doesn't really play a femme fatale, though. there are a couple of pictures in here with her actor husband, Leland Orser, who is really good, but always playing quirky people.

    I think her hubby is attractive in a dorky-hot way. I remember he was on “ER” for a bit back in the day.

    I think he was great on there. He is in a LOT of supporting roles and is always good.

    I remember Leland Orser from ER.

    I love Jeanne's hair. I should just make a Pinterest board of my hair envy.

    Mo, you and your celebrity crushes!!! Lol. I've always been a fan of hers. Not only is she gorgeous, she's got talent.

    That last photo is from Big Love, which was/is one of my all time favorite shows. I still can't believe that Bill Paxton is dead.

    She has a retro look - something from the 50s or 60s.

    I have never considered her particularly attractive, but I can definitely see it in these pictures. She looks like Bianca Jagger in that second picture and a bit like Jackie Kennedy in the first one with her wide-set eyes. I don't remember her husband at all from ER, though. What role did he play?

    He looks familiar, but I don't remember him on ER. I just checked wiki and he came in late in the series. I stopped watching after Noah Wyle left and picked back up towards the end when he came back.

    He played: Chief of Surgery Dr. Lucien Dubenko

    Reading through the last couple of posts kind of reminded me of this blacker-than-black comedy that Tripplehorn and Orser were both in - called "Very Bad Things". Tripplehorn and Orser are not a couple in the movie. Tripplehorn's character is married to Daniel Stern ("Home Alone", "City Slickers"). Anyway, this movie is actually a great display of Tripplehorn's acting ability because (without giving away too much), she is suspicious of the activities of the other (male) characters who have returned from a DISASTROUS bachelor party. Her scenes, in particular, with Christian Slater, are great.

    The Pivs, Orser, and Jon Favreau in the background:



    I meant to post a photo of her with glasses - I don't think she actually wears them in real life, though. But she did when I noticed her in "Basic Instinct":

    I hated her in Basic Instinct, that role was so bad, but I loved her in Criminal Minds. She is a great actress and really pretty, imho better looking with age.

    I love her too. Her husband is kinda nerdy-hot. He was in Taken, too.

    It was a shitty role, but she was hot in Basic Instinct.

    I think I've liked her in almost everything she's been in that I've seen. She was my favorite wife in Big Love.

    She's so pretty. I love her. Didn't she date Ben Stiller for a few years? I remember she was in Reality Bites (very small part) sort of making fun of Cindy Crawford's House of Style on MTV.

    Speaking of Mo's celebrity crushes, do we have a thread for celeb crushes?

    I'm on the late freight, but I will watch ANYTHING she is in. I loved her two seasons on Criminal Minds( I was mad when she left). She was BRILLIANT with Bill Paxton in Big Love.
