Personal Quote:

[in 1975 interview with Eric Danville] When I was with [David Winters] I had an awesome time. I met a lot of people and had a lot of fun at that point. I went to see my first play. I saw Richard Chamberlain in '"Cyrano De Bergerac", I saw "Grease" in Manhattan. I saw the Alvin Ailey Dancers. I became cultured, I guess. I'd never been cultured.


Dressed up as a Southern belle in virgin-white, Lovelace arrived at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in a horse-drawn carriage on Oscar night, April 2, 1974. Her attempt to cash in on the publicity generated by the Academy Awards was thwarted when Paul Newman, husband of Best Actress nominee Joanne Woodward, arrived at the same time and attracted the attention of press photographers.
