Elizabeth Berkley may have starred on Saved by the Bell, but nothing could save unsuspecting movie goers from one of the worst sex scenes in movie history when she starred opposite Kyle MacLachlan in 1995’s Showgirls.
Berkley got her start as a teen model for Elite before breaking into acting. In 1989, she landed the role she’s best known for — Jessie Spano on Saved by the Bell.
Following her Showgirls debacle, Berkley popped up in various television series and, like many actresses before her, made the obligatory my-career-is-almost-over appearances in Lifetime and Hallmark movies. And you thought those were only for Susan Lucci.
By the way, are we the only ones who thought Showgirls was really good? It’s got the best damn lines:
While some entertainers resort to the well-timed release of a sex tape to catapult themselves back into popularity, not Berkley. This renegade started her movie career with one. She’s appeared nude in several films apart from Showgirls, namely Any Given Sunday and Moving Malcolm. All the pictures are below.
