#21. Jennifer Beals as Bette on The L Word
Playing a tightly wound art gallery director, Beals stole the entire second season of this guilty-pleasure, pulpy drama about a gorgeous, bed-hopping group of Los Angeles lesbians. Dumped by her pregnant girlfriend after she was caught cheating, Beals let perfectionist Bette fall apart with magnificent messiness.
 JENNIFER BEALS  @  THE L-WORD 
Jennifer Beals
Bette Porter @ The L-Word

Birthday : 19 December 1963 (Chicago, Illinois, USA)
Height : 5'9" (1.75 m)
Beals is an American actress and a former teen model.
Jennifer Beals began her career after graduation from high school when she auditioned to play Alex Owens in the 1983 cult movie Flashdance, resulting in a role which earned her a Golden Globe nomination, and an NAACP Image Award for Best Actress. Jennifer Beals is since an Hollywood star.
Her career was affected by scandal shortly after, however, when it was revealed that some of the scenes in that movie Flashdance where athletics were required were actually performed not by Beals herself, but by double Marine Jahan (born in France in 1959 - dance double Jennifer Beals).
In recent years, Beals has had starring roles in a myriad of films, in about 50 movies, including The Anniversary Party, Twilight of the Golds, The Last Days of Disco, Roger Dodger, In the Soup, Four Rooms, Vampire's Kiss, Doctor M., Caro Diario and The Madonna and the Dragon. Plus she can be seen in Catch That Girl and Runaway Jury.
Personal Life
In real life, Jennifer Beals is married since 1998 with Ken Dixon, and she is pregnant of her first child (due in November 2005). Her husband Ken Dixon has 2 kids from a previous marriage.
The Flashdance icon Jennifer Beals is biracial, with an African-American father (deceased since she was 10) and an Irish mother.
She is a graduate of the Francis W. Parker School (located in Chicago's Lincoln Park), and a graduate of Yale University in American literature (a private university in New Haven, Connecticut).
A side note
Jennifer Beals is a close friend of Quentin Tarantino. Quentin often stayed at Beals's home while struggling as an aspiring director before Pulp Fiction was made.

Sa carrère fût affectée par un scandale peu après, cependant, quand il fût révélé que quelques scènes athlétiques dans le film Flashdance furent tournées par son double Marine Jahan (née en France en 1959 - dance double Jennifer Beals) et non pas par Beals elle-même.
Récemment, Beals a eu des rôles de star dans une multitude de films, dans environ 50 films, dont The Anniversary Party, Twilight of the Golds, The Last Days of Disco, Roger Dodger, In the Soup, Four Rooms, Vampire's Kiss, Doctor M., Caro Diario et The Madonna and the Dragon.

Ilene Chaiken presents the Golden Gate Award to Jennifer Beals at the 16th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, June 11, 2005.
At the ceremony, Ilene Chaiken, creator of Showtime's The L Word, presented Jennifer Beals with GLAAD's Golden Gate Award, which honors a member of the entertainment or media community for their outstanding contribution in combating homophobia.
"When society fails to tell your story, it sends the unspoken message that your story is not worth telling," Beals said in accepting the award. "Being part of The L Word allows me to offer up some sort of mirror, however imperfect, to people who may have never before seen themselves represented, and that is very fulfilling. And in a country and culture so dominated by media, by the manipulation of words and stories, sharing the stories of people whose narratives have been historically ignored is a radical act - an act that can change the world and help rewrite history."

 THE L-WORD  @  THE STORY OF THE GAY TV SERIES 
article by Barry Garron (Jan. 15, 2004) - The Hollywood Reporter
The L Word - TV Series
#1. - On the cover of its press kit, Showtime lists a few dozen words that begin with "L," such as "love," "lust," "libido" and "lovely," all of which are associated with its newest series about a group of friends and their relationships. The only relevant omission, most assuredly intentional because it goes without saying, is "lesbian," a reference to the sexual orientation of most of the characters.
#2. - Having had reasonable success with "Queer as Folk," its venture into the world of gay men's drama, Showtime and exec producer-writer Ilene Chaiken now visit the lives of gay women, and, in at least one case, a woman whose sexual orientation is unclear even to herself. The result is a dramatic series that is steamy, provocative and filled with smart dialogue and richly drawn characters, none of whom are entirely predictable.
#3. - Start with Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals) and life partner Tina Kennard (Laurel Holloman) who, after seven years, have decided to start a family. Bette, being the Type-A career-driven one, continues to work at her job as art museum director, while Tina, the mellow and nurturing one, gets ready to be impregnated. But by whom? That's one dilemma that occupies a major part of the premiere.
#4. - The other big story involves Tim (Eric Mabius), their next-door neighbor, a college swimming coach and the eager boyfriend of Jenny (Mia Kirshner), an aspiring writer fresh from college. Jenny thinks her writing and Tim will make her world complete until she meets and gets the hots for Marina (Karina Lombard), the owner of the cafe where everyone hangs out. Poor Tim never sees it coming.
#5. - Others in Bette's and Tina's close circle of friends are Dana (Erin Daniels), the pro tennis player who keeps her gay life under wraps, at least initially
#6. - Shane (Katherine Moennig), the disarmingly charming one who prefers ever-changing bed partners and Alice (Leisha Hailey), a freelance journalist who compiles charts to prove that every gay woman is no more than six degrees of separation from every other one. There's also Kit (Pam Grier), Bette's half-sister, a singer struggling to achieve sobriety.
#7. - Not surprisingly, the setting for nearly all the scenes is West Hollywood, cinematically depicted here to look like practically any middle-class suburb. The series is particularly well-cast, including several fresh faces and strong acting skills. It's also filled with enough passionate scenes of lovemaking to attract male viewers who might not otherwise be inclined to sample drama from a female perspective. Some of these viewers may even find themselves regretting that these characters are playing for the other team.
#8. - Premiere director Rose Troche does a nice high-wire balancing job, following the life and loves of these characters and never letting us forget the importance of both. If the premiere seems strangely lacking in references to the immediate families of these characters, be patient. Subsequent episodes will demonstrate the all-too-problematic existence of family members.

In the Life is a gay and lesbian newsmagazine aired on 130 PBS (public television) stations in the United States.
Ilene Chaiken * Executive Producer, "The L Word" :
I sat down with a couple of executives and I said, "I know this is kind of a crazy idea but I just think we should do a lesbian ensemble drama." (chuckling) And they kind of looked at me and concurred that it was a crazy idea.

 THE L-WORD  @  L'HISTOIRE DE LA SERIE TV GAY 
article par Barry Garron (Jan. 15, 2004) - The Hollywood Reporter
The L Word - TV Series
#1. - Sur la couverture de son kit de presse, Showtime énumère une douzaine de mots qui commencent par "L," comme "love," "lust," "libido" et "lovely," tous étant associés à sa toute récente série portant sur un groupe d'amies et leurs relations. Le seul oubli, assurément intentionnel parce qu'il en va de soi, est le mot "lesbienne," une référence à l'orientation sexuelle de presque tous les caractères de la série.
#2. - Ayant obtenu un succès appréciable avec Queer as Folk, son entreprise dans un monde dramatique d'hommes gay, Showtime et le producteur-auteur exécutif Ilene Chaiken visite maintenant la vie de femmes gay, et, dans pour au moins un cas, une femme pour laquelle son orientation sexuelle n'est pas claire même envers elle-même. Le résultat est une série dramatique qui est vaporisant, provocateur et rempli de dialogue futé et des caractères richement dessinés, aucun d'eux n'est entièrement prévisible.
#3. - Commençons avec Bette Porter (joué par Jennifer Beals) et son partenaire de vie commune Tina Kennard (interprété par Laurel Holloman) lesquelles, après 7 ans, ont décidé de commencer une famille. Bette, étant le Type-A carriériste, continues à travailler à son poste en tant que directrice de musée d'art, pendant que Tina, au caractère mûr et apaisant, se prépare à être inséminée. Mais par qui ? C'est l'un des dilemmes qui occupe une majeure partie de la Première.
#4. - L'autre grande histoire implique Tim (joué par Eric Mabius), leur voisin d'à côté, un entraîneur de natation d'université et le petit ami amoureux de Jenny (interprété par Mia Kirshner), un auteur en devenir fraîchement sortie de l'université. Jenny pense à écrire et Tim comblera son monde jusqu'à ce qu'elle rencontre et soit très attirée par Marina (joué par Karina Lombard), la propriétaire du café là où chacun traîne. Le pauvre Tim ne s'apercevra de rien.
#5. - Dans le cercle étroit des amis de Bette et de Tina il y a Dana (joué par Erin Daniels), la joueuse de tennis professionnel qui cache sa vie d'homosexuelle, du moins au début de la série.
#6. - Shane (joué par Katherine Moennig), la charmante de manière désarmante qui préfère changer de partenaires aussi souvent que possible et Alice (interprété par Leisha Hailey), une journaliste indépendante qui compile des diagrammes afin de prouver que chaque femme lesbienne n'est pas plus qu'à six degrés d'une séparation de chacune autre. Il y a aussi Kit (joué par Pam Grier), la demi-soeur de Bette, une chanteuse qui se bat pour devenir sobre.
#7. - Sans surprise, le décor pour presque toutes les scènes est West Hollywood, représenté cinématiquement pour ressembler pratiquement à toute banlieue de classe moyenne. La distribution est particulièrement bien faite, y compris plusieurs nouveaux visages et de fortes aptitudes d'acteur. C'est également assez rempli de scènes passionnées pour attirer un public mâle lequel ne pourrait autrement être attiré par ce genre de drame d'une perspective femelle. Quelques-uns de ces spectateurs pourraient même regretter que ces personnages soient joués pour l'autre équipe.
#8. - La directrice de la Première Rose Troche fait un bon travail d'équilibre, suivant la vie et les amours de ces personnages et ne nous laisse jamais oublier l'importance des deux. Si la Première semble étrangement manquer de références aux familles proches des personnages, soyez patients. Les épisodes suivants démontreront l'existence problématique des membres des familles.

PLANETOUT ENTERTAINMENT
An interview with Jennifer Beals
: Beautiful "L Word" star Jennifer Beals recently sat down with PlanetOut entertainment editor Jenny Stewart and show producer Ilene Chaiken to talk about the Bette-Tina breakup, celebrity crushes and, of course, the jail scene.
: Director Rose Troche apparently made a videotape of various onscreen love scenes for the cast to watch. Was this helpful ?
: Yes, she made a cassette for us of a series of both lesbian and heterosexual love scenes, and she thought some of those scenes worked and some of them didn't. She wanted us to see and judge for ourselves which ones worked and which didn't -- and why.
: So what were some of those movies ?
: Bound, which worked really well, Claire of the Moon and The Hunger. And when we watched them, the ones that worked, regardless of the director, were the ones where the actors weren't fearful. When somebody was fearful, you could see it right away. It takes you out of the story, and that's to be avoided at all costs.
