Gina Gershon is an American actress. She is best known for her roles in Cocktail (1988), Showgirls (1995), Bound (1996), Face/Off (1997), P.S. I Love You (2007) and House of Versace (2013).


Gina Gershon was born on June 10, 1962 (Gina Gershon: Age 60) in Los Angeles, California to Mickey and Stan Gershon. She has an older brother and sister. She started acting when she was 14 years old.

Gershon graduated from Beverly Hills High School in 1980. In 1983 she graduated from New York University with a bachelor’s in drama and psychology. She also went to the Circle in the Square Professional Theater School in New York, studying with David Mamet, Harold Guskin and Sandra Seacat.


Gershon began her acting career on stage on Broadway for roles such as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Gabriella in Boeing-Boeing and Rosie Alvarez in Bye Bye Birdie.

Her first film appearance was a bit-part in Pretty in Pink (1986), which landed her more substantial roles in Sweet Revenge (1987), Cocktail (1988), City of Hope (1991) and Out for Justice (1991).

Some of her even bigger credits include Showgirls (1995), where she plays antagonist Cristal; Bound (1996), where she plays ex-con Corky who gets mixed up with mobsters; Face/Off (1997), where she plays sister to the main character, Sasha Hassler; and Killer Joe (2011), where she plays step-mother Sharla Smith.

Gershon’s recurring roles on television include Red Oaks, Z Nation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Riverdale and New Amsterdam. Her guest appearances include Glee, Elementary, Empire and Crashing.


In February 2023, the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection held its annual concert to raise awareness about heart disease. Along with musical performances, celebrities modeled red dresses at the runway show. Gershon wore a sparkly red jumpsuit for the event.

“We tried on four or five different gowns; of course, one gown is more beautiful than the next,” she explained. “And then [designer] Mark [Bauer] pulled this out, I don’t know why but it just felt so strong and fun. It’s a jumpsuit, I love a jumpsuit. I’m a sucker for a jumpsuit! And it’s got all this groovy fringe. It just seemed really fun so when we saw this one, we were like, ‘oh yeah.’”

Gershon then revealed how she stays healthy and why it’s important to her. 

“I’ve been trying to be healthier and healthier, that’s for sure,” Gershon said. “I think after the pandemic everyone started taking more supplements and vitamins and going to the doctor and checking things out. I’ve had a lot of people, in my family, drop dead from heart attacks, like one after another, so I’m very aware of how important it is to keep yourself checked out. You just have to check in, especially with all the diseases out there. We have to keep our immune systems boosted for the world right now.”
