Celeste Holm wasn’t afraid to speak her mind

Celeste Holm has passed away at the age of 95. One classy lady, she was.

The quote below is from the article.

“…….Warm and gracious, she had been in the business for 60 years when I interviewed her in 1997. At the time, Holm was appearing in “Promised Land,” a spinoff of “Touched by an Angel” in which she played Gerald McRaney‘s mother.

She took no prisoners when it came to her views on the business. Asked about the current state of Hollywood, she replied:

“I think we seem to be in the middle of a suicide on the part of the motion picture industry. I don’t think the motion picture people realize the influence they have and they are making such nonsense!”…………….’
