Kirstie Alley has been an unlikely hero in Celebrity Big Brother 2018.
The 67-year-old American actor is extremely likeable and open and had made friends with all of the CBB housemates.
Which is in stark contrast to fellow American Natalie Nunn.
Kirstie has opened up about her extreme battles with both weight gain and drug addiction during her long career in Hollywood.
Between all of this, however, she was nominated for five Golden Globe awards and won two Primetime Emmy awards.
Let’s take a look at her best movies!
5. Deconstructing Harry
This highly rated comedy came during Kirstie’s twilight years, in 1997.
At the time, Kirstie was busy starring in TV series Cheers, where she was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television series.
However, she also took on the small role as Joan in this Woody Allen-directed flick.
If you can’t stomach bad quality movies, this one probably isn’t for you.
4. Deadly Pursuit
Kirstie has racked up over 70 different acting credits since hitting the big screen in 1984.
Deadly Pursuit was one of her earliest movies, coming four years later, and is rated 6.8/10 on IMDB.
The 1988 action-thriller was nominated for three awards, including Outstanding Action Movie.
Jam-packed with suspense, it’s worth a watch:
SYNOPSIS: An F.B.I. Agent teams up with a tracker to pursue a murderer after he vanishes into the mountains and infiltrates a hiking group.”
Another of Kirstie Alley’s early movies (1987), she takes the lead role in Infidelity as Ellie Denato.
Rated 7.4/10 on IMDB, the romantic drama follows Ellie’s relationship with Nick, as it slowly becomes evident that she has been cheating on her husband.
Infidelity is rated as one of the top 10 movies on cheating and adulthood!
2. Drop Dead Gorgeous
Drop Dead Gorgeous is a cult and classic 1990’s movie which we absolutely love!
It’s not actually very good but is somehow iconic because of this. In fact, Kirstie Alley was nominated for the ‘Worst Supporting Actress’ award from The Stinkers Bad Movie Awards for her contribution!
Kirstie plays a dangerously enthusiastic mother as the storyline takes a comical view on the world of U.S beauty pageants.
Watch the trailer, watch the movie!
1. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
The iconic 1982 movie has a solid 7.7/10 rating on IMDB.
The adventure follows Admiral Kirk attempting to stop an old nemesis – alike almost all Star Trek storylines – where Kirstie plays a supporting role in Lieutenant Saavik.
As far as Kirstie Alley movies go, this movie is ahead of its time and definitely worth a watch if you are a sci-fi nerd.
