down home girl

CHRIS WELLES FEDER (daughter of orson welles): I spent many happy weekends with Rita Hayworth and my father. At the time, Rita was my favorite person in the world. She was the most delightful, charming and unaffected person. Everybody saw her as this big love goddess, but off-screen she was just a delight to be with. Rita loved to read the funny papers in the morning and then she would chase me around the garden with the garden hose and then we would all horse around at the pool. She was just a lot of fun. Off screen she never wore make-up, she just went around in dungarees and was a truly lovely person.
