Helen Lawson is a true legend, one the we all should be proud of having gracing the pages of this board. And who better than the legend herself to answer those questions about Hollywood, Broadway and fame that we all crave for? :D ;)

so kids, no need for shyness, I am sure Mrs. Lawson will be more than glad for quenching your thirst for knowledge... :wavey:

Helen, in your opinion, who is the biggest female Hollywood legend of all time? Elizabeth Taylor, Susan Hayword, Marylin Monroe, Bette Davis or someone else?

Marylin Monroe: just a sexy kitten or actually a good actress?

your opinion on Sissy Spacek and Halle Berry...

Thanks! :wavey:

This will be just like when I was on Actor's Studio!! Only Lipton gave me all the questions before, but here it goes....

Who's the biggest female Hollywood legend? Well, it ain't Liz, hon, I'm 1-0 against Liz at the Oscars, I might add. She hasn't done a decent flick in over 30 years and basically sells perfume now. Susan Hayward, no comment for obvious reasons. Monroe, you have to be kidding. You have to go with Miss Bette Davis, though had wire hangers not popped up post-death with Crawford, she'd be there, though she did too much shit at the end of her career.

Monroe: An unprofessional lazy actress with moderate talent and great looks. She was terrible to work with, late, lazy, everyone in Hollywood hated her personally. She was also dumb as dirt. None of this makes her unique in Hollywood, but that was Marilyn.

Sissy Spacek--versatile, professional, an all around classy dame.
Halle Berry--She's fairly talented, but wasting her talent and youth and good looks on crap. Look at the shit she's doing now and just imagine for a second what she'll be doing at 50. You guessed it, Lifetime TV network, here she comes. She never had any ability to select scripts, she hit paydirt with Billy Bob, but if that didn't alert her to get another agent, nothing will. She's not deaf, middle aged and fat, or played a transsexual like some other one-timers in recent history. She's a smoking hot piece of ass at the perfect age, so she has no excuse. She's blowing it.

Mrs. Lawson, was Marylin's death accidental or murderous?

Is it true you have a feuding with Vivien Leigh?

where would you place Katherine Hepburn and Ava Gardner among the greats?

Don't be silly, call me Miss Lawson.

Marilyn got killed, she'd screwed so many guys in Hollywood, it might have been the Kennedys. Then again, it might not have been. She was screwing mobsters, politicians, the girl's mattress was revolving! She didn't care if she lived or died, to be honest.

It is not a "feud." She cannot do an authentic Southern accident, Scarlett O'Hara and Blanche DuBois be damned. That Scarlett role was mine!!!

Katharine Hepburn is one of the greatest ever. Ava Gardner, she's strictly a talented Tier II champ.

Helen, do you think Nicole Kidman is already a legend? ;) Who do you like most from modern day female actors?
