Happy 75th Birthday, Natalie Wood
↳ (JULY 20 1938 - NOVEMBER 29 1981)
She was very smart, she read a book a week and had a wicked sense of humor. She was just adorable - one of the few movie stars I’ve met who was really worthy of that title.
She lived a very simple life. You know who her friends were? My favorite picture was taken when I brought a new camera over to her house. At the house that day were Laurence Olivier and Elia Kazan. So I have a photo of me, Olivier, Kazan, and Natalie. You look at that picture and the tragedy is you would never think she’d be the first to die.
To go to a New Year’s party at her house was amazing. It was the kind of a thing where Cary Grant came over at 12:30. She was the hub, she was the nexus. She was a child star and everybody loved her. [x]
