Was a good friend of writer Ernest Hemingway, whom she called "Papa." Both were aficionados of bullfighting, though Gardner's interest in bullfighters went beyond their exploits in the ring.

 

Ava loved music and was a talented singer, she was drawn to music and was even drawn to the piano. She could revel in any sort of music if it was good, she even peculiarly took to the song, "Nearer, My God, To Thee" in her youth. Before considering acting, she dreamed of singing lead in a big band.

Maybe I just didn`t have the temperament for stardom. I`ll never forget seeing Bette Davis at the Hilton in Madrid. I went up to her and said, "Miss Davis, I`m Ava Gardner and I`m a great fan of yours." And do you know, she behaved exactly as I wanted her to behave. "Of course you are, my dear," she said. "Of course you are." And she swept on. Now that`s a star.

 

What I`d really like to say about stardom is that it gave me everything I never wanted.
