This is going to be a new "series", if you like. Every Sunday I'll make a little post about a different star...and I hope it won't be too boring!
So, for the first "Sunday Star", I went to my "Film Stars" folder, closed my eyes and clicked...
...on what happened to be the lovely Ingrid Bergman's folder.
Besides the fact that she's Millie's favourite actress ( ;D ), I don't know all that much about her - despite having read her biographies. However, I love her very much.
She may not be one of my favourite actresses, but that's purely because I've not seen nearly enough of her films (suggestions would be welcome!!).
She was so beautiful, inside and out - I know, that sounds horribly clichéd, but I honestly believe that Ingrid is an almost perfect example of how to be beautiful in a completely natural and honest way. ♥
One of my favourite little stories about Ingrid is of how, when she first went over to Hollywood, she was told that she'd have to pluck her eyebrows, wear more make up etc. etc., but she wouldn't and never did. When I read that in one of her biogs. I was like "Go Ingrid!!!" ;D
Oh, and then there's her a.m.a.z.i.n.g. smile! Seriously, it's one of the sunniest smiles ever!! It just makes me want to start grinning for no reason! :')
^How cool is she in this photo!? :O
Favourite Ingrid Role: Ilsa Lund in Casablanca (I seriously need to see more of her films...)
She's actually the only reason I like Casablanca. I'm not a huge fan of Bogie, and I really don't find the storyline at all entertaining, so...it's all about Ingrid.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the first "Sunday Star"!! A presto!
