Personal Quote:

Actors and actresses who say they never go to see their own pictures are talking through their hats. You don't have to be a [Sigmund Freud] to know that the most fascinating person in the world - actors or anybody - is yourself. See more »

Trivia:

Goddard never had any children, but she became a stepmother to Charles Chaplin's two sons, Charles Chaplin Jr. and Sydney Chaplin, while she and Charlie were married. In his memoirs, "My Father Charlie Chaplin," from 1960, Charles Jr. describes her as a lovely, caring and intelligent woman throughout the book. See more »
