“I wanted my stardom without the usual trimmings.” Veronica Lake 1922-1973

“I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s the little things that matter. I’m no longer interested in doing what’s expected of me. I was always a rebel and probably could have got much farther had I changed my attitude. But when you think about it, I got pretty far without changing attitudes. I’m happier with that… I was never psychologically meant to be a picture star. I never took it seriously. I couldn’t “live” being a”‘movie star” and I couldn’t “camp” it, and I hated being something I wasn’t.”
