Elizabeth Berkley Is Finally Proud Of ‘Showgirls’

For many years, Elizabeth Berkley absolutely hated Showgirls, to the point where she wouldn’t discuss it or so much as acknowledge it existed. After all, it was supposed to be her huge breakout role, her star-maker. Instead, it was a box office flop that became a cult hit, and it’s only now – 20 years later – that she’s finally sorta okay with the whole thing.

Apparently she was so humiliated by Showgirls that she actually stopped dancing for years because of it. But last week, at a screening of the movie full of 4,000 people at Cinespia’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles last week, Berkley showed up and addressed the crowd, who clearly love Showgirls, no matter what the critics have said.

“Tonight is like this magical full-circle moment where I actually didn’t get to experience the sweetness of the screening with a crowd that embraced it. I wanted to thank you guys for giving me this gift of truly getting a full-circle moment of experiencing the joy with you because you guys and the love you have for this movie have made this the cult film that it is.”

Then, on Instagram, Berkley shared the following:

Strangely enough, I’ve never watched Showgirls, so I can’t comment either way. What I will say is that Elizabeth Berkley has the most insane skin I’ve ever seen on a living woman ever. Like, it GLOWS, and not in an “I’m wearing too much makeup” way. I’ve seen that shit up close and personal, and it’s real.

  • Get thee to a Red Box!! It’s amazing in it’s ridiculousness and she is full on terrible innit. But. It must be seen to be believed. I do feel kind of bad for her if she was not really embracing the utter Tacknormity of this movie and was just doing it for money. Cause she.was.awful. But the movie is GREAT!

  • Yes, the “sex” scene in the pool with Kyle McLaughlan or whatever his name is, is something to believe. Her flopping around, apparently as an orgasmic response, is sublime… Yeah, ya gotta see it.

    • It looks like someone going into anaphylactic shock. Noootttttt schmexy. I was worried she was gonna drown
