Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue

February 17, 2011
The one magazine Teddy looks forward to every month is Vanity Fair because it's like a very well photographed tabloid.
This year's annual Hollywood issue struck Teddy as a bit ridiculous. There are just too many actors! The only one Teddy likes in Anne Hathaway, who was superb in The Devil Wears Prada.
To be honest, Teddy didn't like too many of the articles, except for one: the piece on her penultimate Hollywood idol Lauren Bacall!
Titled To Have and Have Not, the name of Lauren's first movie which costarred the love of her life Humphrey Bogart, who was clearly her "Nibs," if you will, the interview was fantastic.
Lauren, who was born "Betty" but was renamed by Hollywood suits, had the best face in the business. She made several other films with Bogie like Key Largo and Dark Passages (set in San Francisco). Lauren still works: her next film is Carmel-By-The-Sea and Teddy is going to the premiere next month. Oh-la-la!

Here's a nice picture of "Betty" and her Nibs on their wedding day. What a happy couple. Too bad he died from smoking all those cigarettes. Teddy doesn't let Nibs smoke, ever.
