Personal Quote:

I believe that the actress who wears her profession on her sleeve, as it were, outside of her work, is, as a rule, merely dramatizing herself. When she acts off-stage as well as on, she is wasting her talent. It is like using nectar to quench a casual thirst.

Trivia:

Attended high school in East Orange High in New Jersey. See more »

Trademark:

Waist-length blonde hair
