Personal Quote:

Even now, I feel furious with myself because whenever there's a camera pointed towards me, my MGM training makes me smile. I don't like it. You can see it on all the people who came from that era because there was no question of them not smiling for the camera. Even Katharine Hepburn -- and God knows she was a dramatic actress -- if the camera is on her, she smiles. See more »

Trivia:

Owned and operated an inn located at "Villeneuve-sur-Yonne", about 100km South of Paris. The name of the inn is "La Lucarne aux Chouettes", which loosely translates to "The Owl's Nest". The hotel was sold in 2010 (1997). See more »
