TriviaAlthough it is sometimes bandied about as an anecdotal piece of Oscar trivia, she did not "ramble on for over an hour" after receiving her 1943 Academy Award for Mrs. Miniver (1942). Her acceptance speech was actually only 5-1/2 minutes in length. This still makes it the longest acceptance speech ever. Had homes in Dallas, Los Angeles and ranch near Pecos, New Mexico. Signed up by MGM boss Louis B. Mayer when he saw her acting on a London stage.  Well-known for activities on behalf of educational and cultural institutions. She married Richard Ney after filming Mrs. Miniver (1942), in which he played her son. Nominated for an Academy Award five years in a row: 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944 and 1945. She holds the record for most consecutive nominations with Bette Davis. Was a recipient of the prestigious TACA/Neiman-Marcus Silver Cup Award for her contributions to the arts in Dallas. A fire at her home destroyed the original Oscar she had won for best actress in Mrs. Miniver (1942). The Academy of Motion Pictures later sent her a replacement. Tutored by Laurence Olivier during her theatre days in London. Replaced Rosalind Russell in the Broadway version of Auntie Mame in 1958. In 1962, she accepted the Oscar for best actress in a leading role on behalf of Sophia Loren, who wasn't present at the awards ceremony. Daughter of Nina Ross. Was one of the notable celebrities, along with Roosevelt (Rosie) Grier, who actively supported RFK's candidacy in 1968, prior to his tragic death. Measurements: 36 B/C- 25- 38 During the filming of Blossoms in the Dust (1941) she informed fan magazines that she planned to adopt two babies if she did not marry soon because every home in American should not be without children. She did not carry out her statement even though she did marry twice after declaring her wish to adopt. In 1938 she suffered malnutrition from embarking on a crash diet to achieve the standard Hollywood slimline figure. Was in consideration for the part of Susan Trexell in Susan and God (1940), but Joan Crawford was cast instead.
