Personal Quote:

[on the death of her adopted daughter] I didn't take seriously how troubled she was. She was troubled from very early, certainly from the time she was five or six. If you come home and your child tells you that she's called a mental institution--that should have triggered something other than amusement on my part. See more »

Trivia:

Photographer Julian Wasser captured many of her portraits including the iconic shot of her with her 1969 Corvette Stingray at her home on Franklin Avenue in Hollywood. See more »
