Personal Quote:

I never was the pretty one, but I've got character. A character is somebody who isn't good-looking. And they want old women regularly around here for films, television and ads--commercials, that is. All this gives me a soft cushion under where I sit, a fine car out in front and anything I want to order at the best restaurants in town. What else could a girl want? See more »

Trivia:

A Washington member of society, she scandalized her social set by becoming a comedy vaudeville singer. See more »
