Personal Quote:

[on her sex appeal] Sex appeal is good--but not in bad taste. Then it's ugly. I don't think a star has any business posing in a vulgar way. I've seen plenty of pin-up pictures that have sex appeal, interest and allure, but they're not vulgar. They have little art in them. Marilyn Monroe's calendar was artistic. See more »

Trivia:

In 1942, she had an affair with John Payne. The affair is detailed in her autobiography, "My Path and My Detours" (1986). It ended when Jane realized that she was still in love with her high school sweetheart, football player Robert Waterfield, whom she married in April 1943 (they divorced in 1967). See more »
