LITTLE KOJAKJul 19, 2010

When being interviewed many years later after she had acted in the thriller `Psycho`, she was asked if the film had any impact on her life. She confessed she had stopped taking showers.

When asked why she was divorcing Tony Curtis after 12 years of marriage, she said it was because she was tired of having to drive him to see his psychiatrist. Good answer, Janet, good answer.
