I read this interview/diary of Joan Collins. I had not seen a picture or interview with Linda Evans for years and the reference to plastic surgery made me curious. I looked up some recent pictures. Wow! Why do women do that to their lips?
That's the best thing I've read all week. Thanks OP.
[quote] In rehearsals, we're now mapping out the fight scenes, during which we rip off each other's wigs, throw them at each other and have a pillow fight. Linda says: "I love to fight. Barbara Stanwyck taught me to do my own stunts. I don't do car crashes or falling off buildings, but fighting with another woman is not a problem for me." Well, ha, ha, and thanks, Linda - but this woman was taught by Gene Kelly never to do your own stunts. "Firstly," he told me, "it's dangerous, and second, you're putting some poor stunt girl out of work." So I subscribe to the Kelly theory - or have done ever since twice ending up in hospital after an over-enthusiastic bout of cat-fighting with Krystal on Dynasty. Once, in our infamous lily-pond fight, she pulled my leg so hard that it was practically dislocated; and, another time, I ended up in the emergency ward with a dislocated neck vertebra.
[quote]First preview. Linda's supposed to give me a gentle push, which appears to propel me off a coffee table and on to the floor. Unfortunately, her confidence has grown so much that she gives me an almighty shove that sends me flying on to my knees. The thud is so resounding that I hear the audience gasp in sympathy.
Oh, I would give anything to have seen that!
It just gets funnier and funnier as it goes.
[quote]September 14: Linda scrapes a spoon across my chin on stage while I'm speaking. This really p***es me off. You never invade another actor's space.
The enormous wig bills alone would make any production involving the two financially impossible.
"Joan reveals the truth about the worst theatrical experience of her life."
Burn! It's like Linda is that burned champagne you serve, Joan. She's was obviously frozen in the bottle at some point.
I like a lot catfights in movies!(not in reality though-hehehe!)
Please guys, make a thread for catfights in movies or in series or post here some scenes of that kind
Thank you in advance!
Joan bitches and whines about everything. Her demanding personality is probably why she never had a movie career.
