Personal Quote:

Even now, I feel furious with myself because whenever there's a camera pointed towards me, my MGM training makes me smile. I don't like it. You can see it on all the people who came from that era because there was no question of them not smiling for the camera. Even Katharine Hepburn -- and God knows she was a dramatic actress -- if the camera is on her, she smiles. See more »

Trivia:

She appeared in two Best Picture Academy Award winners: An American in Paris (1951) and Gigi (1958) and the Best Picture nominees Fanny (1961) and Chocolat (2000). See more »
