"Perhaps actresses today, in their desire to be 'taken seriously', feel that being groomed and well put together detracts from the ability. I think that is why Cheryl Cole is so popular, because she is just so pretty and the public are starved of gorgeous people.
When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say there aren't many good-looking actresses around today. I mean there's Angelina Jolie and... there's Angelina Jolie. Jennifer Aniston is cute but I wouldn't call her beautiful. She's no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]." -- Joan Collins
I guess when you're Joan Freaking Collins you don't have to mince words or pull punches.
