Candice Bergen

Candice Bergen Candice Bergen was born on May 9, 1946 in Beverly Hills, California, USA. She was a fashion model and an actress.

Biography and Career :

She attended classes at University of Pennsylvania. She worked as a model, photographer and also studied journalism. Soon, she became an actress and played in many movies. She was considered very beautiful and intelligent. She came to Sidney Lumet's attention for "The Group" (1966) when the director spotted her in a Revlon advertisement hawking lipstick. He thought she was clutching a leopard, though it was really just a leopard print pillow.

In the late 1960s, she was the companion of music producer Terry Melcher. At one point, they leased a house in Bel Air. In 1969, they moved into a house in Malibu and the house they vacated was lease d by Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. It was in that house that Tate and four other people were murdered by members of the Manson Family. The fact that Melcher had agreed to produce a record for Charles Manson and backed out of the deal led to speculation that Melcher was the intended target of the killers.

In 1981 she married the French film director, Louis Malle. Four years later in 1985 they had a daughter, Chloe Malle. Her husband died of cancer in 1995. She is married in the present (2006) to Marshall Rose, who is a real estate magnate and philanthropist.

In 1995, after receiving her 5th Emmy Award for her role as Murphy on "Murphy Brown" (1988), she declined any future nominations for that role. She received a total of 7 consecutive nominations for the role. She made instant headlines in 1992 when then vice-president Dan Quayle criticized "Murphy Brown" for creating the storyline of Murphy having a baby out of wedlock. Quayle suffered a fair amount of backlash for his remarks and "Murphy Brown" (1988) continued to be a highly popular show, right up to its last season in 1998.

Quotes :

- "I have always said Burt's sensitivity and generosity were in great measure responsible for my Academy Award nomination for Starting Over (1979)."

- "...Hollywood has been vulgarized, mostly by television, which vulgarizes everything."

- "I may not be the greatest actress but I've become the greatest at screen orgasms. Ten seconds of heavy breathing, roll your head from side to side, simulate a slight asthma attack and die a little."

- "On her less-than voluptous figure; "I'd LIKE to have tits."

- "Acting has never done anything for me except encourage my vanity and provoke my arrogance."

- "People see you as an object, not as a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don't have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart."

Trivia :

- She is daughter of Edgar and Frances Bergen, former model, brother is Kris Bergen, a film and TV editor.
- She was the first female host of "Saturday Night Live" (1975).
- She auditioned for the role of "Elaine Robinson" in The Graduate (1967).
