Born: January 22, 1932 in Detroit, Michigan, USA
Nobody thought of me as an actress. They just remembered that publicity story about my munching flower petals for breakfast. I even thought of giving up the name ‘Piper Laurie’ because I felt there was a stigma attached to it. I never could figure out just how many parts I lost and how many parts I won because of this name. I know some producers and directors said, ‘Well, maybe she can act even if her name is Piper Laurie!’
If I had stayed in Hollywood, I would have killed myself. Or someone would have done it for me.
