Happy Birthday, Natalie Wood | July 20, 1938 - November 29, 1981 

"I adored Natalie Wood. She was incredibly generous, which not many people in our industry are. She was extremely driven and in charge of her career. Yet Natalie had a vulnerability about her - a part of her that longed to be taken care of." - Robert Redford

"She was like a human Alka Seltzer - she was just the most bubbling, effervescent person, and she was very easy to work with." - Tony Mordente

"She loved life too much. She was a brave women." - Tony Costello 

"There was a fragility in her, and the emotions were very close to the surface: scratch her and get to an emotional color right away. There’s something breathless about her, and you can feel a kind of quivering just below the surface, a very appealing and vulnerable part of her. She had it in person. There was a kind of breathless vulnerability. You want to say, ‘everything’s going to be okay.’" - Sydney Pollack

Happy 76th Birthday, Natalie Wood

↳ (JULY 20 1938 - NOVEMBER 29 1981)

She was very smart, she read a book a week and had a wicked sense of humor. She was just adorable - one of the few movie stars I’ve met who was really worthy of that title.

She lived a very simple life. You know who her friends were? My favorite picture was taken when I brought a new camera over to her house. At the house that day were Laurence Olivier and Elia Kazan. So I have a photo of me, Olivier, Kazan, and Natalie. You look at that picture and the tragedy is you would never think she’d be the first to die.

To go to a New Year’s party at her house was amazing. It was the kind of a thing where Cary Grant came over at 12:30. She was the hub, she was the nexus. She was a child star and everybody loved her. [x]


Happy birthday  Natalia Nikolaevna Zacharenk aka Natalie Wood!!

#145 - The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (1947) - ★★★★

"You can be much more alone with other people than you are by yourself, even if it’s people you love. That sounds all mixed up, doesn’t it?"

“She was the first person I ever interviewed for anything. It was for a magazine. She had just done a movie called Inside Daisy Clover and she had a big movie out at that point called The Great Race. They were high-profile movies.
“And she invited me to her house. Now, I was writing for a very inconsequential magazine, so I was very flattered that I could go to her house, and it was just Natalie and I, and she was a big big star. 
“And I sat down…and I didn’t know where to start. 
“I had questions, but they jumped all over the place…and I couldn’t find my notes and I didn’t know what I was doing.
“And she said, ‘Let me help you…’ and we sat down on the floor and she took my notes, and she said, ‘okay, you should really start with this one, and then go to this, and then maybe do this and this, and lead to this.’ 
“And she was so kind and courteous and everything like that. And I thought, “she should’ve thrown me out of the house saying, ‘you’re not competent to do this! I’m a busy person! You’re wasting my time!’ And she should have! But she was so kind and so encouraging, and was so sweet to me. And because Bob Wagner had been a friend of mine for a long time, so I kind of saw her several times after that, and she was always so sweet to me. And I thought she did me such a great favour by teaching me something and being kind to me.”
