"Acting should be bigger than life. Scripts should be bigger than life. It should ALL be bigger than life."

She promoted wigs, costumes, and makeup that would distinguish her from the typical young movie star and emphasize her image as a serious actress. What mattered most to Bette was not how she looked but how her brought the audience into the story.
