I wasn't a sex symbol, I was a sex zombie. - Veronica Lake
Interesting facts about Veronica Lake:
Lake was born as Constance Frances Marie Ockelman in Brooklyn, New York.
Lake was sent to Villa Maria, an all-girls Catholic boarding school in Montreal, Canada, which she hated and from which she was expelled.
The Archie Comics character Veronica Lodge was partially named after Veronica Lake, who was in the midst of her early celebrity when the comic book character was introduced in the spring of 1942.
"You could put all the talent I had into your left eye and still not suffer from impaired vision." Veronica Lake
I couldn't find any other quotes by Ms. Lake but I do so love the zombie quote above.
