Classic Cinema Gold » Lana Turner — A Pictorial
Feb 8, 1921 – June 29, 1995
“The thing about happiness is that it doesn’t help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I’m grateful that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns. I’ve had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing me, strengthening me.” — Lana Turner
“All those years that my image on the screen was “sex goddess”-well that makes me laugh. Sex was never important to me. I’m sorry if that disappoints you, but it’s true. Romance, yes. Romance was very important. but I never liked being rushed into bed, and I never allowed it. I’d put it off as long as I could and I gave in only when I was in love, or thought I was. It was always the courtship, the cuddling, and the closeness that I cared about, never the act of sex itself-with some exceptions of course. I’m not masquerading as a prude , but I’ve always been portrayed as a sexy woman, and that’s wrong. Sensuous, yes. When I’m involved with someone I care for deeply, I can feel sensual. but that’s a private matter.” — Lana Turner
“It was all beauty and it was all talent, and if you had it they protected you.” — Lana Turner on Hollywood
“I find men terribly exciting, and any girl who says she doesn’t is an anemic old maid, a streetwalker, or a saint.” — Lana Turner
