"...GMTV's Jenni Falconer asked Bacall a seemingly innocuous question. "And now you've worked alongside another screen legend, Nicole Kidman ... " she began. Interrupting her in mid-sentence, Bacall snapped: "She's not a legend. She's a beginner. What is this 'legend?' She can't be a legend at whatever age she is. She can't be a legend - you have to be older."

Meow! Fancy-Feast anyone?

I agree. Doesn't legendary status come with hindsight? Legends are stories passed on from one generation to the next, or things that are remarkable enough to be remembered past their own generations. You can't call Nicole Kidman a "legend" yet. You can call her talented, but not a legend.

Jenni Falconer is clearly an idiot.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

I love how this is being blown out of proportion now, as I am reading about Lauren Bacall has launched a blistering attack on Nicole Kidman. Um, no. She just pointed out a fact.

It's the way she says things. She has a very condescending, nasty way about her. I agree with her, but the reason things she says are blown out of proportion is because she states them with disproportionate negativity.

Poor Norma. I just saw her new commercial for "Tuesday Mornings" and thehy just SCREAM screen legend.

If only the Great Kate would have just hung in there a little while longer to be the spokeswoman for Dollar General.

What becomes a legend most?

Cheap, tacky commercials for discount stores, of course. You tell 'em, Bacall!!

I can't even imagine where to begin...Nicole Kidman a Legend? Not on your life....
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

Well, maybe one day, eventually, if she plans her career right. But she won't be remembered for Days Of Thunder, that's for sure.

We are all in agreement there, Redhot. This thread has turned into a discussion of what a beyatch Bacall is.

Has anybody seen her in the Tuesday Morning (a store) commercials with Jonathan Winters as her chauffeur? Apparantly the LEGAND has no problem doing schlocky commercials.

SOMMS, in that commercial, does she fire her chauffeur while he's driving her the distance of 100 metres?
