How the daughter of a miner Lana Turner became a Hollywood star and the dream of American soldiersPictolic

On February eighth, one of the sexiest actresses in the history of Hollywood, Lana Turner, was born. As a child, she lived in terrible poverty, and then at the age of 16 she became a successful actress, an icon of Hollywood, starred in more than 60 films, but her life itself was like a movie.
Julia Jean Mildred Frances Turner (Lana's real name) was born in a small town in the US state of Idaho in 1921. The father of the future star was a miner, he was engaged in the underground sale of alcohol and was killed. As a child, little Julie (that's what the girl was called) was poor, for some time she lived with her mother's friends, where sometimes she was even beaten. This may have led to the development of a sadomasochistic complex in love and frequent changes of partners; Lana had seven husbands. Then Turner went to an orphanage, as the mother did not particularly care about the fate of her daughter.
