Rest in Peace Joan Fontaine | 22 October, 1917 - 15 December, 2013

Every actor is supposed to have one book inside him; every woman has a thousand disappointments, joys, sorrows, heartaches she carries around within her secret self. Being both an actor and a woman, I cannot feel that my life has been a bed of roses. It has had many vicissitudes, many frustrations, many rewards.
