oh my god audrey 

Happy 96th Birthday Rita Hayworth!!!

(October 17th, 1918 - May 14th, 1987)

"I’ve had my share of surprises, but never anything like this, because if you had told me I could meet anybody I desired—and I don’t mean just those living, but Babe Ruth or Bill Tilden or Bobby Jones, or even the Ball of Fire, who happened to be one sensational stripper—the lady presently gazing out at me would still have topped my list. In spite of the old towel she had wrapped around her head, in spite of old baggy work jeans, even in spite of having no makeup on and a dripping scrub brush in her hand, she had these wide-set eyes like no one I had ever seen, which was probably why she was the most glamorous actress in the entire motion-picture business. It wasn’t just that her eyes were so wide set, or the way they were flecked with changing colors, greens and golds, but there was a sadness there, like in a tale of the fairy princess, so that all you wanted to do was rescue her."

-James Hill, Rita’s fifth husband

“…She was kindness itself to everybody and everything around her — people, animals, everything. She just didn’t have a bad bone in her body. She was a unique person. It’s difficult to describe her character. She was just utterly good, the kindest human being I’ve ever met, with an extreme patience. To live with me was proof of her patience, because to be near me must be an ordeal. She never had a bad temper, she was never moody. She enjoyed being a wife. The press and the public knew of her physical beauty, but she also had a beautiful soul, and this is something that only her friends knew about.” - Roman Polanski

“In just the last few months Sharon was beginning to come into her own. She never cared about being beautiful. She never even really cared about acting. She just wanted to love and be loved. And have her baby. I know that if she’d lived and had the baby everything would have been different for her. Because that is what Sharon really wanted. She was just a little girl from Texas who was so incredibly beautiful that she got swept up in all of the Hollywood nonsense. But all she ever wanted was what every woman wants — a man to love and a baby of her own. I can’t believe that the murderers knew her. To know Sharon, to really know her, was to love her. There is just no way that anyone who knew her could have hurt her so.” — Sheliah Wells, Sharon Tate's friend.
