Berkley, who was known as a teen actor before her shocker, reportedly spent years trying to detach herself from the Nomi Malone fame. Here's why. A lot of people might remember Elizabeth Berkley from the team sitcom 'Saved by the Bell'. But for the most part of her adult life, she was Nomi Malone — ambitious and crafted with the task of sexual awakening across the planet, but turning out to be a master flop.
The protagonist of Paul Verhoeven's erotic disaster 'Showgirls' was driven towards her goal at becoming Las Vegas' most highly esteemed nude dancer, and in her journey caves into her darkness before realization kicks in and all that jazz.

However, Nomi didn't quite land the way Verhoeven or even Berkley had expected. Instead, playing what was supposed to be her own coming-of-age role, shedding the teen-actor image, ended up becoming a disaster that today in a google of 'Why Hollywood won't cast Elizabeth Berkley anymore? In an interview with the Daily NewsVerhoeven has open up and profusely apologized for what starring in his over-the-top sexualized cut-film did to Berkley's career.
From admitting it was his fault, he has said in as many words that the film "certainly ruined the career of Elizabeth Berkley in a major way", adding, "It made my life more difficult, but not to the degree it did Elizabeth's.

Hollywood turned their backs on her. From reigning at the top of her game after her very well-received appearance as Jessie to recoiling into her shell after rattling criticism and mockery of her work in the film, Berkley suffered it all.
Not only were esteemed critics eviscerating her performance, but out of the total record-breaking 'Razzies' recognition for the worst in the industry the film won, two were hers alone: a Worst Actress and a Worst New Star. Written by Joe Eszterhas and directed by Verhoeven, 'Showgirls' was meant to turn Berkley from an actor to an overnight legend, but what it did was far more shocking. Overacting, unnecessarily illogical, albeit impassionate decision making, and gratuitous nudity was supposed to be Berkley's holy trinity.

Add to the slew, heated lap dances, writhing, and convulsing in a pool sex scene as if she were possessed, and whatnot. Director Jeffrey McHale, whose documentary 'You Don't Nomi' defends the fall and shocking rise of the faux- erotica, believes Berkley was impressed by what working with Verhoeven had done for Sharon Stone after 'Basic Instinct'.
In an interview with the New Zeland Herald, McHale addressed Berkley's reaction to the intense judgment passed by reviewers. It was definitely hard at the time and she's been open about that," McHale told the outlet, and it makes sense.
Regardless of who was to blame, she did a sex scene that looked like she was being "electrocuted", as critics noted. The "campy", "tawdry", and "pathetic" sex scene between Berkley and Kyle MacLachlan in a lit pool is still the talk of the town, probably because of the cult following the film has gone on to garner in years to come. After its DVD release, there was an unputdownable craze about the movie that people into religious fanatics of the movie. And even though its a very niche base, they adore the film with every fiber of their being, something that also changed things for Berkley, and her connection with the erotica.
She went on to star in 'First Wives' Club'.
She is married with a son. Sure she wound a decent way back, but the effort she put into not being associated with the Nomi Malone image was heartbreaking, and as Verhoeven will have you believe, too heavy a price to pay for a decision that wasn't her own.

I pushed it in that direction. Good or not good, I was the one who asked her to exaggerate everything — every move — because that was the element of style that I thought would work for the movie," he explained. Maybe the fanbase that worships the film has been able to see through that, and perhaps that's what reignited Berkley's association with the movie.
McHale believes "now she is embracing Showgirls publicly, and that's great to see. Turn on web notifications for latest news Notifications can be turned off anytime from browser settings.
