Ava was one of Erno Laszlo’s many celebrity clients. However, she might be the only one he got angry at. Ava was known for partying, drinking, staying up late (or all night), and being very low-maintenance. Therefor, she didn’t keep up with his specific skincare regimen and detailed instructions. One time during a visit to him, he got so annoyed at her not following his routine that he tried kicking her out of his office. It was hard to stay mad at Ava though.

"The highly irritating thing about Ava, of course, was that she had no regard for her intellectual capacity or her talent. She was a wonderful actress and she never believed it. If you told her that, or if you told her how beautiful she was, she’d get very uncomfortable and virtually begin to shake. She didn’t know what to do with the information; it unnerved her.” — Roddy McDowall

Photo by Sammy Davis Jr. taken in 1954. I decided to post the same photo cropped 3 different ways as I felt there was so much in this photo, and I couldn’t get her hands/cigarette and face in a single crop. Her hands were always very expressive and you could tell when she was relaxed or nervous by them. This is one of my absolute favorite photos of Ava. I feel Sammy captured the real Ava here, not Ava Gardner the Star.

If you’ve ever been in the presence of certain extraordinary women, you’ll know what I mean. I’ve experienced it a couple of times in my life. Facing beauty of that kind. It’s not a completely pleasant experience. She gave you this ache in your gut because she was so appealing. And because she was not yours, you know? You felt a kind of vertigo being near her. She was so desirable you felt a little sick from it. Oh my God, she was extraordinary.” — Mickey Knox on Ava Gardner

Related to my last post, here is a photo of Mickey visiting his sick wife in the hospital after she was treated for appendicitis.

This photo was used in the media to portray Mickey, the All-American King of MGM (Andy Hardy was a national treasure), as a loving and devoted husband of a beautiful young starlet. Why look at the love in her young eyes, look at his sweet grin as he leans into her hospital bed— ah, young love. In reality, after Ava went home, she discovered that Mickey had been keeping company with women in their home while she was in the hospital. His infidelities led to their divorce.
