she was beautifull and was known to all when she lived with Stewart Granger outside of Nogales, Arizona

Jean Simmons was such a radiant beauty; so elegant, talented, and effortlessly chic...she possessed a natural grace that most actresses can only long for, but could never have. Without a doubt one of my favorite actresses, and therefore I can`t believe she`s gone now.

R.I.P beautiful lady.

I just want to congratulate the Jean Simmons family that comparing all celebrities childrens their children are the ones from what I have seen on tv reality shows that actually show they love their parents and respect them-all other celebrities shows like Whitney Houston-Simon-etc all show disrespect to their family and shallow faul mouth to parents and people congratulation Jean Simmons for bringing up your children with respect and love
