During an interview with Elle on the 6th March 2017, she revealed her nervousness about her role in Taken. She said, 

"It's not an intellectual process for me. Do I get that connection to that person right away? Do I understand them? Am I slightly afraid? That's always a good thing."

But then again, she showed everyone why she is a successful actress in the industry when she further added,

"Fear is a good indicator that the hurdle in front of you might be a good idea to try to jump,"

Good thing Jennifer is willing to jump through the obstacles and move forth in her path.  

Likewise, Jennifer also had to face a lot of gay or lesbian rumors after she decided to play a lesbian role.

The Gay/Lesbian Rumors That Surround Her: 

Jennifer Beals portrayed a lesbian role in the series "The L Word" as Bette Porter, and her magical chemistry with her co-star "Laurel Holloman," who also portrayed a lesbian character, turned her into a gay/lesbian icon. Although she is not a lesbian, she is a dedicated spokesperson for LGBT rights and society.

“When I was working on the pilot, I once casually kissed my husband in a restaurant and suddenly I realized that if we were a gay couple, that moment would have been a very big event in that particular restaurant. It awakened in me my sense of otherness that certainly connected me to this role . When I work, I always want to tell the truth and when I choose a project it’s always about the story.” 

Moreover, Jennifer Beals also volunteered for the 2008 presidential election campaign for Obama, focusing specifically on the LGBT community and issues.

To add to her LGBT support, Jennifer celebrated her birthday on 19 December 2018 by supporting the Center for Environmental Health and the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network.

Jennifer has requested a donation from her fans to help GLSEN, which continues to "create safe and affirming schools for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression."

Besides her raising the voice for the LGBT community, Jennifer has also been found raising the voices of the unheard through her social media account.

The actress has taken to Twitter on several occasions to voice her displeasure regarding the country's political scenario, including one about the Trump administration's decision to buy American teachers a gun on 23 August 2018.

"An insane, unfathomable position. My mother was an amazing school teacher on the South Side of Chicago who endeavored day in & day out to provide her students the education they craved even if that meant bringing in extra supplies. Adding a gun to the equation is truly absurd."

Hence, apart from being a tremendous actress, Jennifer continues to remain a social activist raising voices of the unheard through her fame.

She gives credit to her husband, who has always backed her up and guided her in the right direction. We hope this love between them lasts forever.
