Celeste Holm (1919-2012)

Celeste Holm quotes:
"I believe that if a man does a job as well as a woman, he should be paid as much."

"We live by encouragement and die without it - slowly, sadly, angrily."

[on Bette Davis] "I walked onto the set [of "All About Eve"] and there's Bette and I say 'Good Morning,' and she said, 'Oh, shit, good manners,' and I felt as if I'd been hit in the face with a wet flounder and I never spoke to her again."

"The trouble with putting armour on is that, while it protects you from pain, it also protects you from pleasure."


  1. Oh my! I hadn't heard. She certainly accomplished a lot in her 95 years both in the performing arts and in philanthropy. She was a Grand Dame in every sense. Rest in peace, Celeste, and may your star shine bright in heaven.

  2. very sad to hear of this! when i was in nyc in may, i actually sat at the table next to her at a restaurant. she was wearing a pink chanel suit and the charm and beauty just radiated from her.

  3. i love her in "oklahoma" (1943), "the tender trap" (1953), "high society" (1956), "tom sawyer" (1973) and "the love boat" (1979/1984).

  4. Ahhh, I loved Celeste Holm - so beautiful, so talented, such a lovely singing voice. RIP, and thanks for all the pleasure you gave us.

  5. Absolutely one of my favorite character actresses. Rest in Peace!
