Name an admirable movie icon both in film potrayals and lifestyle...

Her doe-eyed beauty is legendary. She's not just a great actress but a humanitarian in real life. Survived hard childhood & failed marriages. Didn't marry her last love but they stayed together til her death.

My favorite is Lena Horne, a popular African American singer and actress. One of my favorite stories about her is when she was performing for the USO. She discovered that the seating was arranged so that behind the white soldiers were not the black servicemen who had also risked their lives fighting for the Allies in segregated troops—but the German POWs. Behind [b]them[/b] the African Americans were seated. Ms. Horne considered cancelling her performance but instead walked down the aisle and sang directly to the black soldiers.

She was no Grace Kelly but she was attractive.

[@564356,JenKarl] Ohh..I just replaced the adjective. Lol 🙃Still, beauty depends on the eye of the beholder. 😉

It certainly does. Fame and adulation add to perception as well.tastes vary.[@863351,CherryBlossoms]

[@564356,JenKarl] You're right.✌️
I like Grace Kelly too and watched Nicole Kidman's portrayal of her life in Monaco. Interesting woman.

[@343077,Goralski] I liked his movies especially Brave Heart & Forever Young but frankly I don't admire his lifestyle. He's a drunk
😨 No offense meant. Just an honest opinion.🙃
