Bette Davis ( 1908 - 1989 )  Category ( Actor_Actress ) [suggest a correction]
 

Bette Davis was an American legend. She was referred to often as the "First Lady of the American Screen" and deserved the title. She was the first actress to receive ten Academy Award nominations and the first woman to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.

Bette Davis had a sharp tongue and was said to be one of the more difficult actresses to work with on the set of films but her sassy mouth and high spirit didn’t keep her from being a huge success. Her Broadway debut Broken Dishes in 1929 jump started a career that never refused to go on vacation.

Bette Davis won an Oscar for Dangerous in 1935 and in 1938; she won another Oscar for her performance in Jezebel which was a film where she played a role opposite Henry Fonda. Even later in life, Bette Davis still took to the stage like a pro capturing three Emmy Awards between 1979 and 1983.

Bette Davis was best known for a role that she played in All about Eve and perhaps she gained even more notoriety for her attitude and brass. It was her unique confidence and overall personality that won the praise of fans during World War II. Bette Davis wasn’t an extraordinary beauty but her talent was impeccable and she showcased it like no other actress before her.

Bette Davis was married four times and her collection of husbands included Harmon Nelson, Arthur Farnsworth, William Grant Sherry, and Gary Merrill. She was career oriented and seemingly didn’t make apologies for it even when her personal life suffered. She would later live to write her own autobiography. The Lonely Life was written by Bette Davis and includes an updated section on her life from 1962 until right before her death in 1989.
