Kathleen Turner complains to Mayor Nutter about Philly cabs

Kathleen Turner took advantage of some recent face time with Mayor Nutter to complain about Philadelphia taxis.

Turner ("Body Heat," "Romancing the Stone"), who met Nutter backstage at the Suzanne Roberts Theater after performing as Molly Ivins in "Red Hot Patriot," told Nutter that 8 out of 10 times she got into a Philly cab, the driver was holding a cell phone, talking without a hands-free device.

Our spies say that about an hour later Nutter was overheard "politely reading the Riot Act" to someone about it. Nutter's office confirms that he spoke to a high-ranking Philadelphia Parking Authority official after hearing Turner's complaints.
