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.

Men, in Hollywood especially, don't like intelligent women.

Trivia:

In the spring of 1932, she survived serious injuries after her car plummeted 40 feet down an embankment just outside her Hollywood home. She escaped with only cuts and bruises. See more »
