Françoise Paulette Louise Dorléac (21 March 1942 – 26 June 1967)
Both shy and bold. Light, dazzling, but sometimes sad look. Full of contrasts, she was like a twinkling star. — Patrick Modiano
The problem, for many young actresses, is to make a successful transition from young girl to woman, to switch from juvenile parts to adult ones. Françoise Dorléac, who will always be Framboise Dorléac for me, won’t have those difficulties, for she is a precocious, premature woman, with a constructed face and body, constructed firmly, to last. She is the only young actress who might very conceivably have greater and greater appeal. — François Truffaut
HAPPY 25TH BIRTHDAY BILLIE CATHERINE LOURD ♛ July 17th, 1992
Boys told me they masturbated to pictures of my mom in Star Wars, and
I’d run home crying. My mom would say, ‘You know what you do? Turn
around and say, “Me too.” ’ That’s when I realized that my childhood
wasn’t 100 percent normal.
She raised me to not think of men and women as different. She raised me without gender. It’s kind of the reason she named me Billie. It’s not about being a strong woman - it’s about being a strong person.
Happy birthday to the amazing Catherine Russell. No one can do that “I want you”- look quite like her + she is super funny, has the cutest smile in the world, is super pretty and is just simply perfection.
Happy Birthday Rosalind Russell! Born
Catherine Rosalind Russell on June 4, 1907
“It’s fine to have talent, but talent is the last of it. In an acting career, as in an acting performance, you’ve got to have vitality. The secret of successful acting is identical with a woman’s beauty secret: joy in living.” – Rosalind Russell
