Is Kathleen Turner religious?

Turner was raised in a strict conservative Christian household, with both of her parents discouraging her career in performance. Turner said, "My father was of missionary stock, so theater and acting were just one step up from being a streetwalker, you know? So when I was performing in school, he would drive my mom [there] and sit in the car. She'd come out at intermissions and tell him, 'She's doing very well." However, Turner says she believes in God but not organized religion.
