[In a 1980 interview] Jean Arthur was ALWAYS my favorite actress when I was a kid. And I love Bette Davis for a very peculiar reason. Bette Davis is not afraid to stink! There are these careful actresses who look pretty, and they're never bad, they're never great. But Bette Davis goes; she'll take chances. I love to watch her on the set. Sometimes it's awful, but sometimes it's FANTASTIC!
Winters was initially known professionally as Shelley Winter. Universal added the S to her last name when they billed her i "A Double Life.".
Later on, played mostly overweight, loud and somewhat tacky women
