Vivien Leigh, Gone With the Wind
“One night while watching the stage I heard a dress rustle, and looking round beheld this bewitching Dresden figurine of 18th century Lady Teazle next to me. She saw my look of obvious admiration and smiled at me in her almost shy way as she smoothed the creases of her voluminous skirt. I gasped at the exquisite picture.
Suddenly the magic was shattered. Realising she had forgotten something important, she muttered angrily ‘SHIT!’ and rushed away to fix whatever it was. I grinned at the irony.” (John Barnard)

Stanley Donen invited Audrey and Cary to dinner at a restaurant in Paris. When Cary came in, Audrey stood up and said, ‘I’m so nervous.’
He said, ‘Why?’ And she said, ‘Meeting you, working with you — I’m so nervous.’ And he said, ‘Don’t be nervous, for goodness’ sake. I’m thrilled to know you. Here, sit down at the table. Put your hands on the table, palms up, put your head down and take a few deep breaths.’
Audrey put her hands on the table and when she put her head down, she hit the bottle of wine, and the wine went all over Cary’s cream - colored suit. Audrey was humiliated and people at other tables were looking, and everybody was buzzing.
Audrey: “He took it so well, rather like he did in Charade when I dropped the ice cream on his suit. That scene came out of the experience in the restaurant. Can you imagine how I felt? I wanted to crawl into a hole. I felt terrible and kept apologizing, but Cary was so dear about it. The next day he sent me a box of caviar with a little note telling me not to feel bad.”
