Ava Maria! The One Guy She Didn't Screw...

Ava Gardner: John O'Hara's Pal at his feet
... But Surely He Wished He Had
'She described their life together. 'I was happy traveling with the band, hanging out with Artie [Shaw, her husband] and his literary pals. Guys like Sid Perelman, Bill Saroyan, John O'Hara. Artie said all I had to do was keep my mouth shut, sit at their feet, and absorb their wit and wisdom. I was happy to do that. I was comfortable with those guys.' -- Ava Gardner, in a profile by Peter Evans in the July 2013 edition of Vanity Fair.
