Personal Quote:

I've never been in a scandal. I've never been caught running naked down a highway. I've not tried to shoot anybody. Nobody's ever tried to shoot me. My child is legitimate... I've never been to Betty Ford... No porn... No drug addictions... I've outlived three of my doctors. So if you're going to write a juicy book, I've got a problem.


Although in later years she claimed to have sung "The Morning After" in The Poseidon Adventure (1972), her voice was in fact dubbed by studio singer Renée Armand. See more »
