Happy birthday, Julia Jean Lana Turner! (February 8, 1921 – June 29, 1995)

“A star of the classic era, she could be grand at times, but she was also human and incredibly fun. My mother possessed an extraordinary sense of humor which, I believe, is what saved her from becoming a Hollywood tragedy. She was, above all, a survivor, and she loved to laugh more than anything in the world. On screen she was a rare mix of cuteness and tempting sensuality and had a riveting gaze that the camera loved. She was a quintessential movie star who adored being dressed in the most expensive gowns, dripping in gems, and demanding the best hotels. On the flipside, she was basically shy, and retained an earthy side that made her love hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants, dancing until dawn, insist on driving her own car, and perhaps most surprisingly, given her famous predilection for jewelry, appreciate sentimental trinkets as much as diamonds. That was my mother, Lana Turner.” —Cheryl Crane

The thing about happiness is that it doesn’t help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I’m grateful that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns. I’ve had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing me, strengthening me.
