Bette Midler:

Bette Midler: “She (the ‘Divine Miss M’) never went anywhere. She’s just a character. That’s the only character that I ever made up by myself … I was in New York, I saw these people, I looked at these movies, I said, ‘This is what I want to be.’ And that’s what I became … But then I didn’t want to get stuck in it, like … John Belushi … I didn’t want the character to run my life. I wanted to be able to go somewhere quiet, be by myself and have a life … I never exactly put it in those words, but I really wanted to be who I always was. I mean, I didn’t think that anybody would buy what I had to say whan I was just myself, because really I’m kind of a bore. But that character, there was nothing boring about her. She was lively, she had red hair, she wore dresses cut down to there, everybody loves that. Who wouldn’t want to be that? But that wasn’t what I was … Not for a second. But I put it out and people were charmed by it.” — (Midler to Movieline, c. December 1991.) Read More

Bette Midler:

Bette Midler: “Basically, what I was doing was a character that has always had a place in show business, and that’s the Broad. People always love a broad–someone with a sense of humor, someone with a fairly wicked tongue, someone who can belt out a song, someone who takes no guff. When I came up, there wasn’t anyone like that. The last one, I’d have to say, was Sophie Tucker.” — (Bette Midler in Entertainment Weekly, December 20, 1991.)

BetteBack June 16, 1974: Rex Reed’s ‘People Are Crazy Here’

Suburbanite Economist
June 16, 1974

2016-09-08_3-53-12

Rex Reed, that international critic, has just written a book called “People Are Crazy Here”.

The book is a compilation of many of his best interviews with well known personalities.

He broke into the business after he attended the Venice Film festival in 1955 and wrangled an interview with Groucho’Marx and sold it to the New York Times.

Outside of the fact that Rex possesses a lot of chutzpah and a sleepy eyed Valentino kind of look, it was this story that launched his role as critic and a writer. Read More
