“I’ve never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don’t understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.”
Happy Birthday Sophia Loren (b. 1934)!

Norma Shearer had the tendency to hold people’s hands. Either with just one hand or both hands. In those pictures she mostly holds people’s hands with one hand, but if you look more closely at her movies or random clips, you will notice that she captured someone’s hand with both of her hands most of the time. She apparently loved doing that. You always find her doing this and either saying something really sweet or a sentence ending with “darling”. It is almost like a running joke. You can always find it. It’s such a sweet thing she did. And once you noticed it, you are actually surprised when she is not holding someone’s hand.
