1Voluptuous figure
2Red hair
1[To Darryl Zanuck's request that she attend the Academy Awards ceremony, 1952] I attended twice and I lost twice and I had to explain to some of those vultures who had been dying for me to lose how 'there'll always be a next day'. Well, I'm not going to make a TV spectacle of myself in front of a few million viewers and that's that!
2You aim at all the things you have been told that stardom means--the rich life, the applause, the parties cluttered with celebrities. Then you find that you have it all. And it is nothing, really nothing. It is like a drug that lasts just a few hours, a sleeping pill. When it wears off, you have to live without its help.
3When you're dead, you're dead. No one is going to remember me when I'm dead. Oh, maybe a few friends will remember me affectionately. Being remembered isn't the most important thing, anyhow. It's what you do when you are here that's important.
4My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy, penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don't relax because I don't know how. I don't want to know how. Life is too short to relax.
5I never thought of myself as a movie star. I'm just a working girl. A working girl who worked her way to the top--and never fell off.
6I learned at a very early age that life is a battle. My family was poor, my neighborhood was poor. The only way that I could get away from the awfulness of life, at that time, was at the movies. There I decided that my big aim was to make money. And it was there that I became a very determined woman.
1Younger sister of Florence (May 29, 1910-May 31, 1996) and Walter Marrenner (November 18, 1911-May 18, 1986).
2Daughter of Walter (1880-1938) and Ellen (née Pearson) Marrenner (1888-1958). Both were born and raised in New York.
3Is one of 22 Oscar-winning actresses to have been born in the state of New York. The others are Alice Brady, Teresa Wright, Anne Revere, Celeste Holm, Claire Trevor, Judy Holliday, Shirley Booth, Patty Duke, Anne Bancroft, Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Lee Grant, Beatrice Straight, Whoopi Goldberg, Mercedes Ruehl, Marisa Tomei, Mira Sorvino, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Connelly, Melissa Leo and Anne Hathaway.
4Miss Hayward had hoped to be able to take her twins sons along with her for the "Soldier of fortune" location shoot in Hong Kong. Unfortunately, she was in the middle of a very unpleasant divorce from actor Jess Barker at the time; citing concerns for his sons' health, he refused to give permission for them to leave the country. Under those circumstances, Miss Hayward declined to go on location: her scenes were all filmed at the Fox studio.
5Was just nine years younger than Bette Davis, who played her mother in Where Love Has Gone.
6Was just 1.5 years younger than Jo Van Fleet, who played her mother in I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955).
7Was the 49th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for I Want to Live! (1958) at The 31st Annual Academy Awards (1959) on April 6, 1959.
8Hayward's Best Actress Oscar statuette for I Want to Live! (1958) was presented to her by James Cagney and Kim Novak [6 April 1959 / RKO Pantages Theatre, Hollywood].
9When she was seven, she was hit by a car and suffered a fractured hip. The doctors' told her she might never walk again. However, after six months, she was able to get around on crutches and after a year was able to return to school. The injury left her with one leg that was an inch and half shorter than the other, and she had to wear a lift in her shoe. Classmates made fun of her odd way of walking, but it became a trademark strut for her in Hollywood.
10A lifelong registered Republican, she endorsed Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952. She also appeared at the 1953 Republican Rally.
11Gave birth to fraternal twin boys, Timothy Barker and Gregory Barker, on February 19, 1945. The father is first husband, Jess Barker.
12Hayward was scheduled to star in a Ross Hunter-produced remake of Stella Dallas (1937), but the film was canceled because the "women's pictures" were no longer box-office.
13Among the parts that Hayward was considered for but did not play are Gold Diggers in Paris (1938) (played by Rosemary Lane), 3 Cheers for the Irish (1940) (Virginia Grey), Murder, He Says (1945) (Helen Walker), Forever Amber (1947) (Linda Darnell), Anna Lucasta (1949) (Paulette Goddard), Stella (1966) (Ann Sheridan), Band of Angels (1957) (Yvonne De Carlo), The Seventh Sin (1957) (Eleanor Parker), The Wayward Bus (1957) (Jayne Mansfield), Elephant Walk (1954) (Elizabeth Taylor), The Sun Also Rises (1957) (Ava Gardner), Can-Can (1960) ('Shirley Maclaine'), My Cousin Rachel (1952) (Olivia de Havilland), Sweet Bird of Youth (1962) (Geraldine Page), The Night of the Iguana (1964) (Ava Gardner), and Hedda (1975) (Glenda Jackson).
14Was born on the same day, and same place (Brooklyn N.Y) as singer Lena Horne .
15Was the original choice to play Margo Channing in All About Eve (1950), but was dropped from the project after being considered too young. The part was then given to Claudette Colbert before being given to Bette Davis, who went on to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance.
16Reportedly did not get on at all with Bette Davis during the filming of Where Love Has Gone (1964).
17In Italy, almost all of her films were dubbed by either Lidia Simoneschi or Rosetta Calavetta. She was occasionally dubbed by Dhia Cristiani.
18Replaced an ailing Barbara Stanwyck in Heat of Anger (1972), which was to have been a pilot for a TV series to be called "Fitzgerald and Pride."
19Was one of many starlets in 1939 who auditioned for the part of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939).
20Took over the ballsy role of stage star Helen Lawson in Valley of the Dolls (1967) in 1967 after Judy Garland was fired.
21Her first marriage to actor Jess Barker was a stormy one and ended with a bitter custody battle of her twin sons and a suicide attempt by Susan. Her second to rancher Eaton Chalkley was a long and happy one until he died suddenly of hepatitis nine years later. She left Hollywood for five years in deep mourning, returning in 1971.
22Her footprints at Grauman's Chinese Theatre are the only ones set in gold dust.
23She portrayed an alcoholic in three films, Smash-Up: The Story of a Woman (1947), My Foolish Heart (1949) and I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955)) and was nominated for an Oscar for each performance.
24Interred at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Carrollton, Georgia, USA.
25Was diagnosed with brain cancer, allegedly the result of being exposed to dangerous radioactive toxins on location in Utah while making The Conqueror (1956). All the leads John Wayne, Agnes Moorehead, John Hoyt, Pedro Armendáriz, Hayward and the director Dick Powell died of cancer. The case is still a scandal.
