No Shoes, No Problem for Kathleen Turner

While most people opt to get dressed up for the White House Correspondents Dinner, we spotted a few folks who went “dressy-casual” for the event. There were lots of tuxes with no cummerbund or vest. There were a few bros sporting suits without ties. But, no one got more comfortable than actress Kathleen Turner.

Once inside the dinner… Turner made her way around the room without shoes. She took them off to get a little more comfortable. Hey, I feel her pain. I’ve only worn heels once and it was a painful experience in more ways than one.

While Turner has acted in many big movies, her most recent memorable performance came as a sex-crazed agent Sue Collini in Showtime’s “Californication.” On that character, she told me, “That character made me blush. I’m not joking. I’ve never spoken like that before in my life.” I just figured someone who walked around in public without shoes was used to getting dirty.
