Lucille Ball "It was STUPID to say no to Klute"

‘Klute’ — I turned that down because my husband Gary Morton didn’t want me to play a high-priced call girl onscreen, even though the role won an Oscar,” Ms. Ball said of Jane Fonda’s turn in the Alan J. Pakula classic. “It was stupid to say no to those pictures.” “As an actor you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’60s and '70s I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who got locked into giant bank safes with Mr. Mooney. I got so far away from what they told you in acting class: Do something different. Producers kept offering me the ‘Change of Habit’ movie opposite Elvis, but Gary said, ‘Your fans don’t want to see you in a wimple.’
