About Cleo Moore:
Cleo Moore was an American actress, usually seen in the role of a blonde bombshell in Hollywood films of the 1950s.
Anything I learned about the fine art of acting I learned from Hugo.
We made one film called Thy Neighbor's Wife in which I got flogged at the public whipping post for adultery. I did my best acting in that film, I guess.
It was strange what happened to me; I mean popping out like that before I was even ten.
They seem to be charmed by my Southern accent.
I like to take afternoon naps in the nude.
I like to paint nudes mostly.
And I usually use myself as a model, posing in front of a mirror as I dab the strokes on the canvas.
Painting self-portraits without clothes on has also given me some publicity.
One newspaper even published one of my nude paintings - the one of me naked from the waste up.
None of the European girls, including Anita Ekberg, has anything not found on American girls as well.
You know, just because you're a blonde type doesn't mean you can't suddenly do serious parts.
I'm not a very good painter, but I'm learning a lot.
Believe it or not, I was all fully rounded by the time I was nine years old.
Tell me the truth - do you think I've lost my Southern accent? I feel it comes back to me only when I'm shouting at fights or at baseball games.
They want a lip print for their autograph books. I'm a sport; I go along.
