Stardust With Old Hollywood Star Power for Vogue by Steven Meisel

"Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss
and fifty cents for your soul."
Marilyn Monroe

"The average Hollywood film star's ambition is to be admired by an American, courted by an Italian, married to an Englishman and have a French boyfriend."
Katharine Hepburn

"Hollywood is like life, you face it with the sum total of your equipment."
Joan Crawford

" Hollywood always wanted me to be pretty, but I fought for realism."
Bette Davis

" In Hollywood, an equitable divorce settlement means
each party getting fifty percent of publicity."
Lauren Bacall

" If only those who dream about Hollywood knew how difficult it all is."
Greta Garbo

Well, the stars sure made it all look so glamorous.
What do you think?
Any words of wisdom here or from you?

Bonjour Christina,
Such beautiful images, love that hair. Enjoyed all the quotes, I think Marilyn hit it right - unfortunately I think that's the way the game is played.
Hope you're having a great week so far!
