- Margot Kidder, Superman, 1978.
- Diane Keaton, The Good Mother, 1988. Offers flowed in after Fatal Attraction.
- Sigourney Weaver, Working Girl, 1988. “But you have to make choices true to your heart.”
- Kathleen Turner, The Accidental Tourist, 1988. She did a commercial for a wine cooler, instead. “Paid well and got me home early.”
- Jacqueline Bisset, Wild Orchid, l990. “A quite nice, large role in the script but they certainly didn't shoot it that way,” she told me in Cannes. “My deal was contingent on them doing certain things [excising nudity]. Those things did not occur, so I left. They couldn't sue me... but I could've sued them.”
- Virgina Madsen, The Hot Spot, 1990. Also too erotic... Or, it was once Dennis Hopper directed instead of Mike Figgis, with Don Johnson substituting Sam Shepard. Madsen perectly matched director Dennis Hopper’s sulphuric film noir, “a superior work in an old tradition,” said Chicago critic Roger Ebert. She was “a great broad… when she gets up in the morning she puts on her negligee just when the other women in town are taking theirs off… The movie has been compared in some quarters with the work of David Lynch but it's less self-hating and more stylistically exuberant. The movie is all style and tone, and a lot of the tone is set by the performance of Madsen.” Hopper called it “Last Tango In Texas. Real hot, steamy stuff.”
