Ava Gardner: Sassy Celtic Lassie

Jan 21, 2014 by

Beautiful Ava Gardner, a queen amongst the royalty of vintage Hollywood, was born in North Carolina into a poor farming family. She was truly a Wild Eyed Southern Celtic lass, with green eyes, non-stop curves and a bawdy wit. She had both Irish and Scots-Irish heritage from her mother and father.

A few of my favorite quotes from Ava Gardner:

When I lose my temper, honey, you can’t find it any place.

 

Although no one believes me, I have always been a country girl and still have a country girl’s values.

 

I wish to live until 150 years old but the day I die, I wish it to be with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.

 

Oscar Wilde would have loved Ava Gardner.
