Stage and screen legend Lauren Bacall is a fan of "Twitter", but not, it would seem, of the vampire film 'Twilight'.
IMDB.com reveals that Bacall, the two-time Tony-winner for her star turns in Applause and Woman of the Year, wrote about her distain for the teen vamp flick on her "Twitter" page!
The actress commented that, "Yes, I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the 'film' was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau's 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, 'Now that's a vampire film!' And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"
Bacall has also appeared on Broadway in Waiting in the Wings and Cactus Flower, among others. Her many films include Dogville, The Mirror Has Two Faces, Misery, How to Marry A Millionaire, Key Largo, To Have and Have Not and The Big Sleep.
"The epitome of grace, independence, and wit, Lauren Bacall continues to astound generations with her audacious spirit and on-screen excellence. Together with Humphrey Bogart she produced some of the most electric scenes in movie history, and their romance on and off screen made them Hollywood's most celebrated couple...Now, on the silver anniversary of its original publication, Bacall brings her inspiring memoir up to date, chronicling the events of the past twenty-five years, including her recent films and Broadway runs, and her fond memories of many close lifelong friendships. As one of the greatest actresses of all time turns eighty, By Myself and Then Some reveals the legend in her own beautiful frank words -- encapsulating a story that even Hollywood would struggle to reproduce," stated publisher's notes about her recent book, By Myself and Then Some.
"Twilight," was a B.O. smash in its November 2008 debut, grossing $380 million worldwide.
