Once he completed filming “Macbeth” in 1948, Welles flew to Rome for another film project, and, according to his biographer Barbara Leaming, he “seemed far more worried about the supply of false noses he left in Hollywood than about his unfinished picture.”
What’s even more unusual is that, as Welles aged, his false noses in movies grew even bigger. Though, if you’re going to start with a masterpiece at 25 years old, there’s not much room for nose growth.
TV and theatre director Don Richardson (who was interviewed for the 1987 biography "Grace: The Secret Lives of a Princess") claimed that Kelly indeed had many lovers. Don Richards also conveyed that the woman didn't let her Catholicism get in the way of her passions. You go, girl!
"She would jump out of bed on Sunday morning, wearing nothing but the crucifix, go to church, come back in an hour and jump into bed.”
Orson Welle's Secret Nose
Orson Welles couldn’t stand his nose. In 1955, actor and filmmaker Orson Welles confessed in a sketchbook, “You may have wondered why I look so peculiar on the television. And it’s partly; I must confess to you the fact that you see my nose as it is. In most of the films that I appear in, I put on a false nose. Usually as large as I can find.”
He did have a rather small nose, so it makes sense as to why he wanted to hide it, but still, we think Welles looked just fine.
Greta Gabo's Eating Habits
Greta Garbo had a bizarre diet. While there is pressure for actors to be in shape these days, there was even more pressure in Hollywood’s golden age -- especially for actresses. The pressure to stay marketable for film projects and appealing to fans was so intense that these starlets had to make sure they stay in shape.
At one point in Greta Garbo’s life, she reportedly ate nothing but spinach, and at another point, she ate only dried apricots, brown beans, biscuits, and chicken.
The Strange Food Combinations
In addition to this, Garbo was known to have some odd food combinations. She was known to eat raw eggs mixed with orange juice, buttermilk combined with yeast, or cornflakes together with lingonberry jam and coffee.
Despite some of the off-putting creations, adventurous foodies claim that that last one is pretty good.
