I’ve always loved old movies but didn’t get into Bette Davis until few years ago… and then I became obsessed. She was ahead of her time- an actress who constantly sought after material that would be good for her, a pitt bull when it came to her career, a conventional looking woman who made the world believe she was beautiful, a chameleon unafraid to look or be “ugly” if the role called for it, the first female President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the first woman to be honored with an AFI Life Achievement Award, a two-time Oscar winner and ten-time nominee and an artist who performed until the end of her life. I wouldn’t want her personal life but for an actress in Hollywood there are few more inspiring icons.
