[speaking in 1929] "Unfortunately, or perhaps it is fortunate that I have always been forced to stand on my acting ability. I haven't a personality such as Jack Gilbert's, for instance, that attracts women and makes them like me for myself. When I am on the screen I must make them forget me entirely and think only of my acting."
Was in a relationship with Jean Harlow
for two years before her death and paid for her funeral, costing $30,000. For many years Powell made sure fresh flowers were always present at her grave.
