Doris Day wasn’t the innocent ingenue of her on-screen persona. Nor was she the “world’s oldest virgin,” as the actress was dubbed later in her career. In fact, even when she got married at the age of 16, she wasn’t a virgin. And that husband? He wasn’t her first lover, either.
“I was hardly ahead of my time,” Day told WWD in 1976. “Life was the same then, only people didn’t talk about it. And you have to realize I was a band singer on the road with a band at 16. I wasn’t living at home with mama and papa, so I don’t think that should surprise anyone....I really don’t know where I got that goody-two-shoes reputation, unless it was some of those awful movies I made.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
