Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions August 2, 2019 by Robert J. Avrech 8 Comments “Nobody’s going to tell me how to live. I go by the rules of decent behavior. The most important rule to live by is the Golden Rule. I don’t do anything to anybody I wouldn’t want done to me. I drink, but I’m not tough and rough. I don’t brawl outside of movies. I act tough in movies but that’s what I get paid to do. Despite what they say, I don’t go around in restaurants waving guns and picking fights. I live my own life and I do what I want. That’s Bogart.”—Humphrey Bogart (b.
