Personal Quote:

[on Jerry Lewis and The King of Comedy (1982)]: It was fabulous. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I learned so much from everybody on that film, including Jerry. Is he easy to get along with? No. Is he notoriously crank and misogynistic? Yes. But that doesn't mean you don't have a great experience in spite of people's limitations. It was incredible.

Trivia:

In June 2006, Bernhard appeared on the daytime talk show "The View", and in a seven-minute segment, her commentary on race and politics incited two of the hosts to rage. See more »
