First the prize jewel in gay activist's Derek Jarman's filmography. Then critical adulation and fame with Orlando "same person...different sex". On to Female Perversions and into The Deep End. Finally and impossibly, sorcerous big box office, red carpet goddess, unashamed polyamory, and Oscar-winning internationally adored actress. All this and she's never lost a single wisp of that original avant garde spirit.
Now, a covergirl for the "first transversal style magazine"! Fifty-one years fabulous and still going impossibly strong. Long may this queer icon reign.
