Hedy Lamar, not only do I think she’s the most beautiful woman to grace the silver screen..she was also bisexual.
Oh and did I mention a genius? She had it all.
At the beginning of World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. Though the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology, and this work led to their being inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.
“I was getting along in my thirties. In the industry, these were the suicide years. So many actresses attempted suicide as they approached forty. Why? I suppose for many reasons. Speaking for myself, I was beginning to get tired. Really physically tired. The emotional strain, plus the hours and the pressures, were taking their toll.” - <b>Hedy Lamarr
