Jennifer Beals: Hard Decision

Although Jennifer Beals was one of three finalists for the lead in Flashdance, the film's producers could not decide between them.

Their solution? A focus group comprising some 50 men was shown each of the three audition tapes and asked the following question: "With which actress would you most like to sleep?" Beals won by a landslide.

[In 2003, Beals was asked what she thought of the reemergence of some of the styles (sweatshirts with the necks cut out and leg warmers) which she had popularized back in the 1980s. "I don't know whether to say, 'Wow, that's wonderful,'" she replied, "or apologize to them." (New York Daily News)]
