YMMV / Bette Davis

  • Harsher in Hindsight: A quote from an interview she did after Mommie Dearest was released - It's like trying to imagine how I would feel if my own beloved, wonderful daughter, B.D., were to write a bad book about me. Unimaginable. I am grateful for my children and for knowing they would never do to me anything like what Miss Crawford's daughter did to her. Of course, dear B.D., of whom I'm so proud, is my natural child, and there always are certain risks in adopting. - her daughter would later write such a book about her.
