Personal Quote:

I've always had this old, husky voice. I never was your little itsy-poo 18 or 20-year-old. I was a character actress as a teenager.


She made very few films during her career, but her performance in The Night of the Iguana (1964) earned her both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. See more »
