— Richard Burton on Elizabeth Taylor


"She is shy and witty, she is nobody’s fool, she is a brilliant actress, she is beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography, she can be arrogant and willful, she is clement and loving, Dulcis Imperatrix, she is Sunday’s child, she can tolerate my impossibilities and my drunkenness, she is an ache in the stomach when I am away from her, and she loves me!”

"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you." - Frida Kahlo

"To the world it might not have seemed that constant or deep an association, but we became very close, even though we didn’t see each other much. I couldn’t say, ‘she was my best friend in my whole life’. Yet in a way, perhaps she was.” Deborah Kerr on Audrey Hepburn.
