"I’m not tough, and I never have been. I suppose over the years I’ve built up kind of a veneer to protect myself because I have functioned on my own for a long, long time, and I have never had a lot of flunkies preceding me to clear the way."

Happy Birthday, Lauren Bacall (16th September, 1924 -  August 12th, 2014)

 I’m always nervous. I always am before I go on stage. And I always am when I start a movie. And I just am because — I don’t know. It’s just kind of ingrown. It’s just built into me.

It’s as true in today’s Hollywood as it was 70 years ago: There’s nothing as sexy as… Lauren Bacall.
Not just because of how she slinked through her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not,” with a voice that sounded like whiskey neat and the most come-hither directions ever put on film (“You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”). Nor because of her long hair that seemed to shine even in the darkened corners of noir drama.
It was all that, yes, but it was also a word associated with men: swagger. Bacall had it in spades, and woe to the poor fathead or fall guy who considered her just another dame.New York Daily News
