She was an excellent actress and outstanding model. Fatal women usually represented the burning brunette with a tenacious gaze. But grace Kelly was not like this. Real volcano hiding under absolutely angelic face.
Her first cavalier, acting teacher at American Academy of dramatic arts don Richardson was much older than Kelly and had long been gathering strength to explain their love for each other. It seemed to him as pure as the first winter snow. When Richardson took the risk to invite grace to visit, she shocked him with its looseness.
"I lit a fire and walked into the kitchen to make coffee, recalls don. When I returned, she was waiting for me in bed. She took off all her clothes... I've never seen anything more beautiful!"
Later, when on Central streets of new York Prince Rainier III of Monaco proposed to her, Kelly happily agreed, but that same evening he called Richardson to ask how to explain the fact that she was not a virgin. Don did not share the panic of a former lover: "What's the problem? Tell me what you once unsuccessfully performed gymnastic exercise in the school."
For Prince Rainier, grace Kelly left a brilliant acting career. And still no one blamed her for the fact that it was done out of greed. The pictures you see reflect only a small part of her bright, happy, and however full of obstacles of life.
