“We were kind of the two goofy kids on the set,” Kate Winslet told Rolling Stone in 1998. “Y’know, working with Leonardo DiCaprio — he’s a bit gorgeous, and I was worried that I was going to be bowled over by him, or that he was going to find me all stuffy and Shakespearean and English. But the second we met, we just completely clicked.”

Leonardo DiCaprio said, “She was my best friend for seven months. We’d unload the stresses of the shoot to each other, vent to each other, watch out for each other….We were partners.”

“Kris met Paul at a dance in 1988 and she knew she had found the man she wanted to spent the rest of her life with. According to Today, Kris remembered that moment and said, “I looked into Paul’s eyes and saw my future.” After dating for five years, they decided to get married. “I proposed to him. I whispered in his ear, “Would you marry me?” And he looked up at me with this big beautiful smile and he shook his head “Yes!” And that’s when I knew. He got me laughing, he was the one for me,” said Kris to CBS. ⁣
Paul passed away from complications of dementia at the age of 56 less than a year after their 25th anniversary. Even during Paul’s last moments, as his memory faded, his face would brighten up when he saw his wife and her overall presence would calm him.”

#23 Mary Ann Bevan Entered And Won An “Ugliest Woman” Contest

Image source: historyphotographed

Mary was born in 1874 and became a nurse in 1894. In 1903, she married Thomas Bevan and they had four children. In 1906, Mary began suffering from acromegaly, a rare condition that causes enlarged bones in feet, hands, and the face. After her husband died in 1914, Mary was unable to find work due to her appearance. To support her children she entered an “Ugliest Woman” contest; her win brought her enough attention that she was hired as a sideshow performer.

Mary provided for her family working at Coney Island Dreamland Show and Ringling Brother’s Circus. She died on December 26. 1933.

She endured ridicule and humiliation to selflessly take care of her family. She was a feminist icon and example of beauty being more than skin deep.
