“Sometimes I try to think what I could have done when I first came to Hollywood that made them say those things about me. There is one thing I can remember and it is so tiny! Every time I wanted to ask somebody to please be quiet or to please stop talking I used to say ‘Shut up!’ I thought that was the way to say it. I did not know. For a long time no one corrected me. ‘Shut up! Shut up!’ I was always saying it.”Simone Simon

That is too dumb and too absurd! This I cannot do...not for anyone..." -- Simone Simon (Bizarre Los Angeles)
