Debra Lynn Winger (born May 16, 1955) is an American actress.
She is best known for roles in An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Terms of Endearment (1983), and Shadowlands (1993), all of which earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
In 1995 Winger decided to take a hiatus from acting. After making Forget Paris in 1995 she was absent from the screen for six years before returning in 2001 with Big Bad Love, written and directed by her husband, Arliss Howard, and also marking Winger's debut as a producer.
In 2001 a critically acclaimed documentary film titled Searching for Debra Winger was made by Rosanna Arquette and released in 2002 after Winger returned to film acting.
She has shown her support for reconciliation between Arabs and Jews in Israel by visiting the bilingual Hand in Hand schools (Galilee Jewish-Arab School, Gesher al Ha Wadi School) where, in 2008, she stated she would "dedicate the next bit of my life to these schools".
As 2009 president of the Zurich Film Festival jury, Winger joined other members of the Hollywood film community to speak out against the arrest and prosecution of director Roman Polanski who was convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl in the 1970s, criticizing Switzerland's government for "philistine collusion" in arresting him so many years later, as he was en route to attend the Zurich festival.
She was cast in the lead role in A League of their Own but dropped out and was replaced by Geena Davis.
In 1982 she co-starred with Nick Nolte in Cannery Row and with Richard Gere in An Officer and a Gentleman, for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress twice more: for Terms of Endearment in 1983 (which was awarded to her co-star, Shirley Mac Laine, who played her mother in the film) and for Shadowlands in 1993, for which she also received her second BAFTA nomination.
In 1995 Winger performed in The Wizard of Oz in Concert: Dreams Come True a television musical performance of the popular 1939 MGM film at Lincoln Center to benefit the Children's Defense Fund.
Her roles in that television special were the "Cyclone" narrator and the Wicked Witch of the West. During her hiatus from the film industry, Winger spent a semester as a teaching fellow at Harvard University.
