One of the biggest names in the history of American cinema, television and theatre, Bette Davis, was renowned for the characters she portrayed on screen. Even though she played various characters ranging from comedy to suspense thrillers, she is recognised for her roles in romantic dramas. Despite her spitfire and non-diplomatic attitude against studio executives and colleagues coupled with her critical persona, she went on to become the most prominent female icon in the industry. Her list of accolades includes Academy Award for Best Actress and Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute. She was also elected as the first female President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In response to her combative reputation she stated that “In this business, until you're known as a monster you're not a star.” Here are some entertaining quotes from Bette Davis.
