Bette Davis on Joan Crawford: ‘There were never two opposed actresses working together in the world’
This just popped up on video suggestions on YouTube. With Feud: Bette and Joan about to premiere on FX, it is fascinating to get Bette Davis’ thoughts on her Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? co-star Joan Crawford. She actually praises her rival. ‘There were never two opposed actresses working together in the world. Just totally different people and systems. But I will say this of Miss Crawford: She is a professional, she is always on time, she knows her lines … I have great respect for her as a professional – that she is. And I wish I were half as beautiful, that I will say for her.’ Then, of course, she adds: ‘Now if you want to meet me privately sometime (she laughs) … we’ll meet you outside.’ Not sure when this Q&A took place or where but I’m guessing its the late 60s or early 70s.
