Live Long And Prosper: Happy Birthday Lauren Bacall
You guys it is Lauren Bacall’s birthday today and she is 89 and she is still so fucking fabulous I can hardly stand it. Seriously, how do you pack that much awesome living into one life?
She was a model…
…who draped herself across a piano while President Harry S. Truman played piano:
Her first film, To Have and Have Not, was with Humphrey Bogart, where she delivered one of the all-time sexiest classic movie lines:
That voice, you guys. THAT FUCKING VOICE.
After that, she married Bogey. No big deal. Was with him until he passed away and then she dated Frank Sinatra:
Along the way there was also Key Largo, How to Marry a Millionare. The Big Sleep, Sex and the Single Girl…you get the idea.
She made smoking look both insanely sexy:
…and laid back:
[happynicetime disclaimer. Yes, we know smoking is bad for you. No, you should probably not take up the habit. Duh.]
She aged beautifully. No, really FUCKING beautifully:
She’s namechecked by the Clash for no good reason but it is cool anyway:
Happy Birthday Lauren Bacall. Please write more books and show up at more awards shows and say more awesome things and basically live forever please.
