BRIGHT LIGHTS FILM MAGAZINE: Bette Davis said that when she woke up on her sixtieth birthday, she “screamed and stayed in bed all day” and also remarked that “anyone who says that life begins at forty is full of crap! As people get older their bodies begin to decay. They get sick. They forget things. What’s good about that?” How are you and the aging process getting along?
CAMILLE PAGLIA: I laughed out loud at your great Bette Davis quote! It really conveys her formidable, unconventional personality and blunt, pragmatic Yankee spirit. Don’t forget she was an Aries (like me) — Aries women are devotees of Nietzschean will power and inexhaustible nervous energy. So it’s no surprise that Davis, despite the fact that her movie career was never dependent on beauty, would despise aging.
God i remember the first time I saw this book – a pure raw Aries blast of dissident everything. It’s outrageously dense to read but totes brilliant. And Bette Davis was insanely Aries. She would have adored this era – access to much more power & energy enhancing disciplines.
Thoughts on Aries women as devotees of Nietzschean will power and inexhaustible nervous energy? Aging? Sixty is just after the 2nd Saturn Return BUT Ms Davis turned 60 it was 1968, an entirely different proposition to now, yes?
