Born: December 7, 1932 in Detroit, Michigan, USA

Wore 20- and 40-pound fat suits and prosthetic necks to play Sara Goldfarb in Requiem for a Dream (2000).

Said in the book “On Women Turning 50” that she did not attend the 1975 Academy Awards, where she won the Best Actress award for Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974), because she was certain she would win and could not handle the pressure and attention. After attending several later Oscar ceremonies at which she lost, she regretted not being there to accept her award.
