#Hollyweird @treytylor for @thefacemagazine Liv Tyler and Joaquin Phoenix had one screen test for the 1997 drama Inventing the Abbotts, and it was love at first sight. “I just fainted on my hands and knees. I walked into the room. He had his back to me. He looked at me and I just went, ‘Wheeeew,’” Tyler, who was 18, once said of their first meeting in 1995. "I had this grin on my face that was so silly.” Phoenix, 21, was single after breaking it off with his ex, Acacia, and had no idea that Tyler was the daughter of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. "For the first screen test that we did, I didn't really know anything about her,” Phoenix told The Morning Call in 1997. "I had heard her name. I'm not really hip to magazines or those television shows where they talk about actors. The only thing I had seen was a shampoo commercial which she did." Despite knowing little about his new co-star, they “hit it off immediately,” he said. "I’m always surprised when there’s a female person who thinks I’m attractive. With Liv, it was a totally natural thing. You see someone that you have great feelings for, and it’s mutual – and that’s that.” Full article in my bio.

Audrey Hepburn and her baby son “Until her death, my brother and I never really sensed this iconic image she had. She would rather talk to us about how we were doing at school, our girlfriends, our problems, our lives, so we just saw her as our mother. She knew people saw her that way but she didn’t see herself as beautiful at all. She was actually quite self-conscious about her defects – her nose, her feet, too skinny, not enough this or that.”
Fun fact: Jim Morrison was the first musician arrested on stage, in 1967.

“I can be [without Yoko Ono] but I don’t wish to be. There is no reason on Earth why I should be without her. There is nothing more important than our relationship, nothing. We dig being together all the time, and both of us could survive apart, but what for? I'm not going to sacrifice love, real love, for any f---in’ whore, or any friend, or any business, because in the end, you're alone at night. Neither of us want to be, and you can't fill the bed with groupies. I don't want to be a swinger. Like I said in the song, I've been through it all, and nothing works better than to have somebody you love hold you.” — Lennon in the 1971 Rolling Stone interview

“So we were bringing in all these people,” the director recalled to Cosmopolitan, “and they were all good, but I remember Selma Blair came in and I said, ‘How old are you?’ And she goes [in Cecile's bratty voice] ‘How old are you?’ And she was so obnoxious and I couldn't get it out of my head.” At 26 years old, Selma was the oldest high schooler in the movie.
