Actress Elizabeth Berkley says she feels so appreciated by her gay fans that she's moved to tears.

The 38-year-old Berkley gained fame playing brainy Jessie Spano on the teen television sitcom Saved by the Bell.

In an interview with gay glossy Out, Berkley, who played exotic dancer Nomi Malone in Director Paul Verhoeven's 1995 Showgirls, was asked about the movie's appeal for gay men.

“First of all, I'm so happy it has been,” Berkley said. “I feel so appreciated and understood … I could cry. [Begins crying] You got me to cry! I feel very appreciated by my gay fans, and I really appreciate it. So when they come up to me and say a line like, 'Let me do your nails sometime, darling,' or 'I don't know, she just went down,' I just love it. It makes me so happy because it was supposed to be fun. It's campy and fun, and I love that it's finally been embraced. It feels good.”

Berkley added that she would not be in for a second Showgirls feature, saying, “You can't mess what Showgirls is.”
