Jeanne Tripplehorn in ''The Firm''
When we last saw Jeanne Tripplehorn, she was splayed on the floor of a San Francisco office building, her limbs limp and tangled, her right hand clutching her Bart Simpson key chain. ”I love you,” she gasped to Michael Douglas in Basic Instinct. Which was funny, because his character, Nick Curran, had just filled her character, Beth Gardner, with enough bullets to wipe out an Iraqi battalion. Then, with a certain B-movie bravado, poor Beth expired, a bloody mess in a bad trench coat.
