The next thing that happened to me was that I, we, were living in Paris where I then grew up.
So in those days, they were scooping up any young person who could sing and look decent, ah, at the same time.
It never occurred to me that I looked like a movie star.
It was considered oh, not proper for children to go to the movies.
My mother thought Hollywood was a den of iniquity, and people came to terrible bad ends there.
I was born in New Orleans, and I wasn’t allowed to go to the movies.
I was near sighted. I was born myopic, and I got glasses, right after that.
And I wasn’t crazy about Hollywood in those days.
So I got caught up in the same wave as everybody else and went right out to Hollywood, to make movies.
I get on the floor, and I can do things a woman a fifth my age can’t do.
I was taken to concerts when I was six, seven years old, and sat in a box throughout the whole evening.
And I didn’t, that’s why my career was very short lived.
