Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions December 21, 2018 by Robert J. Avrech 1 Comment “I never vacuumed at home wearing my pearls. In fact, I never vacuumed at all.

Stuttgart, Germany 1949 Saul LeiterHarper’s Bazaar, 1959 “I dealt with men who had tempers, and who could get violent—Lord knows how I had to defend myself against Howard Hughes and Frank Sinatra, and from Artie Shaw’s verbal abuse. But George [C. Scott] was a different category of animal when he got drunk. He’d break into my hotel room, which he did in Italy, London and at the Beverly Hills Hotel, attack me to where I was frightened for my life, and scream, ‘Why won’t you marry me?’ Well, I would never marry a man who couldn’t control his liquor. Me, I’m a happy drunk. I laugh, I dance. I certainly don’t break bottles and threaten to kill.”—Ava Gardner Clyfford Still, PH-1039, 1977Oil on canvas, 113 x 93 in.
