. In her native country, she was probably A+ list. She was also the inspiration for one of the most iconic advertising characters ever.

After she came to Hollywood for the first time, her drug dealer came with her. Between takes, she would go to her dealer who was waiting nearby her dressing room and she had her daily snorts. The cocaine was definitely a factor in her unexpectedly premature death, because she had an underlying heart condition that even her doctor didn't know about.
