NEW YORK (AP) – Memoirs of Oscar winner Gina Davis will be released this fall under the title “Die of Politeness”, which the actor described as “a journey into obscenity.”

HarperOne, HarperCollins Publishers, announced Tuesday that the book will be published Oct. 11. According to the publisher, Davis will share “funny stories” about his modeling career and give candid stories about the movies “Tutsi”, “Tutsi”. “Casual Tourist” and “Beetlejuice”, as well as stars such as Susan Sarandon from “Thelma & Louise”, Madonna from “A League of Their Own” and ex-husband Jeff Goldblum from “The Fly”.

Davis, 66, said in a statement that the book will tell how acting helped her turn her into a person in charge of her life. She won an Oscar for her supporting role in The Casual Tourist and was nominated for Best Actor in Thelma and Louise. In 2019, the academy presented her with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her advocacy for gender equality in the media.

As my career progressed, I went all the way from the role of a soap star in her underwear in Tutsi, to a housewife who became a warrior in “Thelma and Louise,” to a baseball phenomenon in “Their Own League” to the first woman- the president of the United States, the commander-in-chief, and much more, ”she said.

“For everything I’ve invested in each of these roles, I’ve taken a lot more. I was happy to practice living a different life – bolder, freer and more real – on screen. In this book, I will explain how my public life – films, propaganda and my relationships – has influenced my personal and, I hope, inspired my readers to expand their own sense of power. ”
