This actress was A list at the peak of her fame.
She was a multiple Academy Award winner/nominee.
Some of my all-time favorite Hollywood stories are about her.
This studio owner who is more famous for what he did outside the studios used to sleep with her regularly.
When he would try and pass her off to his friends though she would always refuse so he would put her in bad movies or keep her from not working. There was one particular incident where he wanted her to have sex with another woman and she refused so he told her she couldn’t do a lead role she really wanted and made her do a tiny tiny part in a movie.
He thought it would make her furious.
It did, but she ended up getting nominated/winning an Academy Award.
She would often wear a hat while having sex because she didn’t want men to be turned off by her face which she always hated.
The story for which she is most well known involved her sleeping with her husband’s son when he was still in elementary school and then later in life marrying him.
Studio owner: Howard Hughes
Movie: Best Actress in a Supporting Role “The Bad and the Beautiful”

Grahame’s fourth and final marriage was to actor Anthony “Tony” Ray (Nicholas Ray’s son – her former stepson)
