1Seductive deep voice
2Voluptuous figure
3Curly blonde tresses
1I get asked, from time to time, "How do you stay so fit, even after all these years? It must be tai-chi or something, because you look like a cheerleader!" Actually, more than anything else, it's praying to God... not that I don't enjoy being mistaken for my daughter's sister!
2[on working with director Otto Preminger on Such Good Friends (1971)] I was warned about him -- but could anybody really be that bad? Yeah, they could. Elaine May wrote a great screenplay. He took a piece of beauty and screwed it up. It was an incredible part and he destroyed it. I have been the victim of some killers in my time. He's one of the biggest. He's a horrible man. Phew! But who ever hears of him anymore? Is he still alive?
3I don't acknowledge age. I'm not afraid of what's called age. The only thing that would ever frighten me would be losing my vitality or energy or the stars in my eyes or love for life. And I don't believe that's connected with numbers.
1Older sister of jazz bassist David Friesen.
2Her father, Anton Benjamin Friesen, was born in Canada, to ethnic German parents from Russia. Her mother, Claire (Portnoy), was a Russian Jewish immigrant.
3Always seen courtside at Los Angeles Lakers home basketball games.

7Born at 9:34 AM (EST).

9She was reluctant to drop acid with regular user Cary Grant, her husband at the time, who believed it had psychological value, but he compelled her to do it twice, and she got violently sick each time.
10Gave birth to her only child at age 29, a daughter Jennifer Diane Grant (aka Jennifer Grant) on February 26, 1966. Child's father was her 1st ex-husband, Cary Grant.

12Second husband, Stanley Fimberg was a real estate mogul who executive produced her movie The End of Innocence (1990).
13Was extremely nervous about doing the famous bedroom scene in Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969). She claimed all four participants were a wreck. Elliott Gould busily stuffed food in his mouth; Robert Culp talked a mile a minute and Natalie Wood would not even come out of her trailer at first.
14Recently came in fourth (behind Sophia Loren, Ann-Margret and Raquel Welch) in the "Sexiest Older Actress" category held by the website Third Age.
15Cary Grant first saw her on a television series in 1961, when she was already a 24-year-old television veteran. They started living together in 1963.

17Wanted a nose job early in her career, but a doctor told her she had a beautiful nose and was not going to do anything to it. She then decided not to get the nose job.
18In the early 1970s, Paramount had plans that were unrealized to remake Double Indemnity (1944) with Cannon in the Barbara Stanwyck role. Ultimately, the project was downgraded to a television movie and when Cannon was not available, Samantha Eggar was hired for the role.
19Her commitment to Christianity has led her to hold twice-monthly revival-style Bible study meetings on the CBS studio lot.
