In 1986, she bagged one of her most acclaimed roles in Francis Ford Coppola's fantasy dramedy, "Peggy Sue Got Married," earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. She continued to take on major leading roles in the early 90s. However, her career was hampered by her struggles with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease that restricted her abilities.

Overcoming these challenges, Turner appeared in several films like the hit comedy "Serial Mom" and other credits such as "Moonlight and Valentino," "A Simple Wish," "The Real Blonde," "Love and Action in Chicago,” and more. As her rheumatoid arthritis went into remission, she voiced a character in the 2006 animated film "Monster House” and starred in films like "Marley & Me," "The Perfect Family," "Nurse 3D," and "Dumb and Dumber To." On TV, she guest-starred as a drag performer on "Friends" and appeared in episodes of "Law & Order," "Californication” and other shows. She also worked in "Family Guy" and "Rick and Morty."



 

Not much has been reported about Turner’s salary. As per Celebrity Net Worth, Turner was paid about $30,000 for “Body Heat.” However, this does not seem to reflect her average salary.

In 2016, Turner sold her Lincoln Square condo,  formerly known as Trump Place, for about $3.8 million, as per Streeteasy. Turner reportedly sold the property to cut ties with the Trump name associated with it as she avidly supported Hilary Clinton in the presidential elections.

Turner married real estate entrepreneur Jay Weiss in 1984 and the couple had a daughter before they got divorced in 2007. She struggled with rheumatoid arthritis for several years and even developed an addiction to alcohol. The autoimmune disease affected her joints and organs. Turner found out about her condition during the shoot of “Serial Mom” when her feet were so swollen that she couldn't fit into her shoes. As per reports, her condition is in remission but she still has flare-ups.
