I was very much a tomboy. I've always been rather outspoken, headstrong, and I'm pretty much that way to this day.
In 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' I was just playing and having a good time.
I lost my parents very early in my life. My mom died three weeks after I graduated from high school, and my dad died two years after I got married.
I didn't know anything about movies or movie stars or the Academy or anything. I was just a blank sheet of paper. I was totally ignorant of all that stuff. I never went to the movies, didn't know anything about the movies.
I wasn't a child who wanted to be an actor.
