A Remorseful Actress
"I act for money, no other reason. Since I made my first picture in 1941, I haven't done a thing worthwhile.
I have never enjoyed making films, and I don't like being a so-called film star. I haven't the emotional make-up for it, nor the love of exhibitionism. I am much too shy. I'd rather find one good man I could love and marry and cook for and make a home for, who would stick around for the rest of my life. I never found him. If I had, I would have traded my career in a minute."
--Ava Gardner, arguably one of the most beautiful and talented women to grace the "silver screen," quoted in the Arizona Republic's article on her death, January 27,1990
