[On Robert Taylor, her co-star in Lady of the Tropics (1939)]: ‘One evening I came home and saw my spouse [Gene Markey] staring at a magazine and turning it every which way, and chuckling.

[Best remembered today for his portrayal of the alien visitor to Earth (named Klaatu), in the sci-fi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Michael Rennie had an unwarranted reputation as a ladies man, no doubt greatly enhanced when director Otto Preminger cited him as the third party to his counter-suit of adultery against his wife during their divorce proceedings in 1958.

‘In my own mind, I’m not sure that acting is something for a grown man to be doing. I really don’t like to act. At the beginning, back in ’52, I had to force myself to stick with it. I was real uncomfortable, real uncomfortable. If I hadn’t made it as an actor, I might have wound up a hood.’

[On violence in the media]: ‘We live in a violent world, but since the success of films like Pulp Fiction (1994), it seems every movie has some violence in it, and it’s now being used as a form of comedy; audiences are now being encouraged to laugh when people get their heads blown off. I just don’t like hearing people laugh at violence.’

If they do, they run to the plastic surgeon and their faces wind up looking like dinner plates…Life is an adventure, and time brings change. But women are terrified of aging for some reason. Everyone clings to blonde hair and white teeth. I think that undermines womanhood.’

[On the long-time speculation about her sexuality, Michelle had this to say in a 2013 issue of Entertainment Weekly]: ‘I don’t talk about what I do with my vagina, and they’re all intrigued. I’ve never walked the carpet with anyone, so they wonder: ‘What does she do with her vagina?’ Plus, I play a ‘butchy’ girl all the time, so they assume I’m a ‘lesbo’…Eh, they’re not too far off. I’ve gone both ways. I do as I please. I am too fucking curious to sit here and not try when I can. Men are intriguing. So are chicks.’
