ave eva

lovely facts of her life:

Her first child, Darrell, was born April 1st, 1955, two days after she won the Oscar for On the Waterfront (1954).

Although the part of Edie Doyle properly is a lead, producer Sam Spiegel listed Eva Marie Saint as a Supporting Actress in the hopes of getting her a nomination. The ploy worked, and she won the Oscar.

"I was having children, I was turning things down and my agent said 'Eva Marie, you'll never be a superstar' and I said, 'I don't want to be a superstar."
