"My father always says, ‘Never trust anyone who has a TV bigger than their bookshelf.’ So I make sure I read. Back at home, I just put up a massive bookcase and asked everyone I know and love to help me fill it with their favorite books. It’s been quite nice because I’ve learned a lot about my friends and family from what they’ve been giving me. A book says a lot about a person." — Emilia Clarke for InStyle UK (April 2014)
Few Hollywood romances were as legendary as Bogie and Bacall’s. The beautiful Betty was only 19 when she met Humphrey (who was married at the time) on the set of their upcoming movie ‘To Have And Have Not’ in 1944. However their 25 year age gap and Bogart’s marital status didn’t seem to stop a romance from forming between the two stars. After divorcing his wife in February, 1945, he proposed to Bacall and Bogie and his ‘Baby’ were married just months later on May 21st, 1945 at Malabar Farm in Ohio. They stayed blissfully wed, had two children together and were very much in love with each other until his untimely death in 1957. At Bogie’s funeral, Bacall placed a small golden whistle that had once been a part of a charm bracelet he had given to her before they married. It was inscribed with a quote from their first movie together - "If you want anything, just whistle."
