She pretty much refused to do the cheescake swimsuit/negligee promotional photos that were standard at studios of the time. I think there's One shot of her in a bathing suit (not the one from the set of High Society, where she was supposed to be wearing a bathing suit!) that she was made to do, and it looks so jarring to see her in that coy-starlet type of pose. She had way too much class to look right being made to do something like that.

Here is a transcript of Larry King Live:


LARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, a rare, intimate, exclusive look inside the legend of Princess Grace. From Hollywood to royalty, Grace Kelly's classic beauty made her a queen of the silver screen, but she gave up movie stardom to become a real-life princess. And then tragedy, her fairy-tale life cut short 21 years ago this month by a car crash.
Tonight, exclusive, Princess Grace's sister, Lizanne Le Vine; Princess Grace's cousin, John Lehman; her nephew, John Kelly; and her close friend, Hollywood roommate and bridesmaid, actress Rita Gam; and Christopher Le Vine, nephew of Princess Grace. And they're all next on LARRY KING LIVE.

She was famous and beautiful plus she was a good actress.She would not like the way her chidren are acting that is sad all three of her children were in scandals. I thought adleast one could stay free of any scandals I was proven wrong.Even after her death people are still talking about her and marriage to Prince Rainier III Of Monaco.

Yes, but she did not have to grow up in the spotlight & the pressures until she was an adult & married & I have a feeling her children have a lot of her good traits.

I think for the reason that she was so special, that in itself is hard enough for them to have to deal with in their own ways & then to have to suffer her death at such young ages & in the public, I can't help cutting them some slack. They had to deal with a lot that she did not.

Take a look at this thread: Grace - By Howell Conant in the Royal Library section. I'm posting pictures and captions made by Conant. The book is great, you'll get to see some private moments of Grace as an actress, wife, mother and Princess of Monaco. So take a look.....


'Through Conant's words and pictures, we see Grace Kelly in all her many roles: Oscar winning screen star, princess, loyal friend, wife and mother. The result is a moving and revealing portrait of a woman who remains the most glamorous and beautiful figure of a bygone golden age.'

'Howell Conant's remarkable photographic collaboration with Grace Kelly began in 1955, just before she won her Oscar, and it continued for more than twenty-five years, until her untimely death.'

Yes there a lot of pressures and stresses on you when you become royal or your born royal yes I understand that her children lost her when they were very young but that is not a good reason for them to be in a scandal. They do have some of Princess Grace's good traits by helping the less fortunate but sometimes that gets over shadowed by their scandals.

I have few photos of her funeral mirage and one of them is not desireable so I am not posting it here because it's her photo in open casket. If you are interested in her funeral you can basicly search it on google and easily find it.
