Personal Quote:

My greatest cross is that my face and body don't match my mind and soul. People expect me to be an ingénue, a baby doll, and they're terribly disappointed when they find I'm not. At parties, I've seen men ask to be introduced to me, and I knew they thought I was attractive, but after talking to me a few minutes they'd turn away in dismay. Men, in Hollywood especially, don't like intelligent women.

Trivia:

In a full-length article on Sidney in Classic Images, February 2009, by Greg Mank, Hollywood gossip had it that Sidney was having an affair with Carl Laemmle Jr., the Universal general manager who discovered her. Some implied that she also was having an affair with his father, mogul Carl Laemmle, at the same time. This sullied her reputation in Hollywood and her career was heavily damaged by it. See more »
