Bette Davis

"I often think that a slightly exposed shoulder emerging from a long satin nightgown packs more sex than two naked bodies in bed."

Born Ruth Elisabeth "Bette" Davis in 1908 in Lowell, Massachussets, Bette Davis was one of the most iconic actress of all time, and America's most celebrated bitch (in the best sense of the word, of course). 

She was married four times and had three children. 

A pioneer, Davis was the first actress to be nominated for 10 Academy Awards. She won two for Best Actress: first for her role in Dangerous (1935) and the second for Jezebel (1938). She was also a founder of the Hollywood Canteen and the first female president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1999, she was ranked second in the American Film Insitute's list of the greatest female stars of all time (after Katharine Hepburn). 

No one does catty like Bette.
