Jennifer Beals interview on health magazine Energy Times

On the September issue of health and wellness magazine Energy Times, Jennifer talks about toxins and environmental health.

Jennifer Beals launched a fashion fad when she wore an off-the-shoulder grey sweatshirt in “Flashdance,” a Hollywood image made famous by the iconic movie poster featuring Beals as a Pittsburgh woman with dreams of ballet stardom. Thirty years later, Beals, 49, hopes to be part of a trend in which she has a much more personal stake, and one that has far more vital results: lobbying to rid household products and other manufactured goods of harmful toxins and raising awareness about alternatives.

Twitter chat with Jennifer Beals (transcript)

Yesterday Jennifer did a live twitter chat  to promote the WIGS’ series “Lauren” answering fan questions, here’s the transcript of the Q&A’s:

@Juniper40: “War rape” has always been common, used to show power over another. Do you think this mentality adds to the problem?

Rape should never be condoned no matter the circumstances. In my mind rape within a military unit is best likened to being raped by a trusted family member.

Interview with Jennifer Beals and Troian Bellisario

Jennifer Beals

Last Monday April 29th took part on a press conference call with Jennifer and Troian to discuss their second season of the WIGS series ‘Lauren’ which premieres on Youtube this Friday May 2nd with 12 new episodes.
If you followed the first season you will know that ‘Lauren’ deals with sexual assault in the military and both Jennifer and Troian want to make sure these stories don’t go unheard and although fictionalised, ‘Lauren’ is a brutally honest portrayal of the endless red tape and cold bureaucracy that many victims of sexual assault experience while serving in the military.

Jennifer Beals talks to FOX411 and two radio interviews

Jennifer talks to FOX411 about her role on The Mob Doctor: ‘She starts out as a call girl and then becomes an entrepreneur and creates the largest escort service in the Midwest and has associations with the Mob. It was so much fun. I love this character so much; she is all about sex, violence and money – and not in that order. She is this very interesting mix of the completely feminine and masculine.”
