Okay, here is a bit of a confession for you. I love to read celebrity autobiographies on occasion. I don't know why I am a tad bit embarrassed by this guilty pleasure, I guess somehow I am afraid it lumps me with the supporters of the paparazzi. I do prefer autobiographies, my rational is that if they wrote about their lives they are basically inviting me in, right? Although I must honestly admit that I will on occasion read a biography too, but I always feel like I more accurately get to understand a person when they are the contributor. Probably more accurate too. My very favorites are actors and actresses from Hollywood's golden age. I adored Katherine Hepburn and Audrey Hepburn's books. I really enjoyed this one too. I have always loved Doris Day, Pillow Talk is a major fixture of my growing up memories. She definitely one of the actresses responsible for my love of old movies. I really enjoyed her book too. I was written about thirty years ago. She was very honest and frank I felt, not trying to glitz up her "image", a word she says she hates. Somehow it is always a bit of a comfort to remember that everyone, even beautiful, funny, lovely Hollywood people have problems. Sometimes lots of them. But what I enjoyed was that this wasn't a "woe -is-me" book. It really was about surviving some really awful things, sometimes having a terrible time getting through them, and then still staying that lovely, lite-up lady that was so fun to watch!
