Don`t listen to her, just look

"The head of publicity of the Hollywood studio where I was first under contract told me: You`re a piece of meat, that`s all. It wasn`t very nice but I had to take it. When I made my first screen test, the director explained to everyone: Don`t listen to her, just look."

"I don't feel that I was a Hollywood-created star."

"If you're wanting glamorous or really beautiful or really sexy, well then, I wasn't really the one, but I could do all of that. You could just get really lost in that kind of image."

"Besides, I never really liked my knees."

Kim Novak (born 13th February 1933).

She's crazy, but fabulous.


  1. Love her! Especially in The Legend of Lylah Clare. Pure insanity.

  2. That is a film I have never heard of! However when I checked the cast list and find "Lee Meriwether as Young girl" and "Coral Browne as Molly Luther", I think I really should see it... Jx

  3. Coral Browne is great in it! Of course.

  4. As if Coral Browne could be anything else... Jx
