Ann Turkel rewrites history

Still lovely, of course. Posting for DL fans who may not have seen this article. Gorgeous, cool and iconic second wife of Richard Harris states big whoppers within, like:

1) I never thought I was attractive (COME ON!! Lie!) 2) I never drank or did drugs (Uh..huh) 3) I loved Richard even though he regularly was insane drunk and tried to kill me by accidently stepping on my peignoir (murder by stealth)

I can't help but love her though. DM article posted below.

Posted before but such a great clusterfuck of Johnny Carson. His interview with Ann, with Richard Harris in the wings, turns into Johnny leaving the stage and Harris taking over. You don't see TV like this anymore kids!

She mentions the butterfly necklace in the DM article. It's sweet.

Ann was very photogenic.

Reminds me of Oliver Reed and Richard Burton who were also out-of-control drunks..

Of course Ann was photogenic, she was a former model.

Ann doesn't look too bad there, years ago, her plastic surgery didn't look very good, her face seems to have settled.

Ann was one of the worst actresses ever and her performances the most wooden committed to the screen.

Most people know Ann as a famous model, not as an actress. As a person working in fashion advertising, I'm aware of most famous fashion models, past and present.

Years ago, Ann was an extremely well-known model, she was always in VOGUE magazine and on several of their covers.

I guess her modeling career was before my time because I was only aware of her (as a kid) in crappy movies like Ravagers and Humanoids of the Deep. I do know she was a model, but I have no memory of her fame as one. I know she was married to Richard Harris, but unlike Trish Van Devere, who mostly got her roles through her marriage to George C. Scott but who could actually act, even Harris had trouble getting Turkel hired, she was that bad.

Ann was a famous model yet per article she never thought she was attractive. Oh DEAR!

Harris obviously had his charms but who could live with that mess? Put him, O'Toole and Burton on and island with or without liquor and it's a bloodbath either way.

Marisa Berenson, Ann Turkel and Barbara Carrera, they were all famous well-known models, who somehow drifted into acting.

IIRC, Barbara was a Bond Girl.

None of these women were any great shakes in the acting department, but all were amazing models. They sure weren't the ugly plastic surgery messes the public has to look at today, like those horrible Hadid sisters.

Bella Hadid has such a punchable smug face. I don't understand how she gets so much work, she's revolting. Bella gets hired for so many high end brand ad campaigns, it's mind boggling.
