Married 6 times, Gloria Swanson started her career in silent films and is best known for her role as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard in 1950. She has 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - one for movies and one for television.

Do you remember Carol Burnett's character based on Gloria Swanson?

Anyway - here are some more quotes for Gloria Swanson.

Some of those comments are funny. I alwasy tell people on my birthday "I'm a day older than I was yesterday."
