Deborah’s Beauty Secrets, Part Two

  • Deborah’s Formula for Beauty : She says that happiness and enjoying your work are the most effectif tonics. Furthermore in order to be happy« a sense of humour is helpful. The more I look around, the more it seems to me people don’t get along because one of them doesn’t have a sense of humour. »
  • Deborah and Foods : Deborah was quite a health eater « I like raw carrots, (…), salads and cheeses. I could be a vegetarian. » She is also absolut mad about vegetables. But she is a great fan of Pasta which she finds absolutely delicious but unfortunatily very unhealth.
  • Deborah and Weight : « When something disturbs me and when things are turbulent, my weight soars up. » She says, that she never puts on weight when acting, but that she has to be careful when she’s not on the set.
  • Deborah and Sports : Despite the fact that Deborah’s husband, Peter Viertel, was the first one to bring the surfboard to Europe and started the surfing culture in Europe, Deborah said she «couldn’t care less about sports. » She wasn’t a sportsfan, but she said that she tried to do every morning ten minutes of sit-ups and swimming in the ocean whenever she could. « I love the sea – I can’t live happily away from it. »

  • Fashion in Deborah’s eyes : « One should always compromise with fashion(…) », she says. When Deborah was in Hollywood she gained the status of the always-well-dressed lady. Later in Klosters, her home in Switzerland she wore more légère fashion at home, but when she went to the city she dressed very beautifully again.
  • Deborah and her beautiful skin : « I do wash my face with soap and water, (…) », she says, but as a reporter remarked, it’s the english women’s luck to have a beautiful skin. « It’s the climate. The rainfall and moisture in the air keeps everybody’s skin lovely without doing anything about it. » She also applies Handcream on her face and tries not to use creams that are to heavy for her skin.

And Deborah was a very simple person. The special thing about her beauty was… I quote Jean Simmons at this place : « Deborah Kerr is the most beautiful person, inside and out, that I know. » It’s like she said, beauty can come from the inside.

And she was very funny too. She struggled against being held for the perfect goody-goody lady. So apperently she instructed friends to tell anyone who asked that she preferred cold roast beef sandwiches and beer to champagne and caviar any day.

So lets try to find happiness, a sense of humor and a beer with a roastbeef sandwich! ;)

"Being typed as a lady is the greatest misfortune possible to a motion picture actress. It limits your characterizations, confines you to play feminine sops and menaces and the public never highly approves of either…I want to improve my career and professional life and…I am tired of being a clothes horse – a sort of hothouse orchid in a stand of wild flowers."  - Rosalind Russell
