June Vlasek took a lot of baths. We may be used to seeing the skincare and beauty routines of a lot of stars today on social media, but in earlier days, they had to use other outlets.
The beauty routines of certain starlets were often printed in newspapers so that their fans could get their tips and tricks. Actress June Vlasek (or June Lang) shared her unusual beauty tip in “The Fort Worth Star-Telegram” in October 1932.
Doris Day Loved Vaseline
Doris Day was a big fan of Vaseline. The beauty tip that actress Doris Day used for beautiful skin was Vaseline, but her application process was a little messy. In her 1975 autobiography "Doris Day: Her Own Story Day," she said that once a month, she covered her entire body.
Yes, she would do this all over her entire body with Vaseline. It doesn't sound very comfortable. Then she would put on her pajamas and hop into bed. That’s what probably resulted in her silky smooth skin.
Passion For Hygiene
Vlasek confessed to the newspaper, “Frequent baths — say twice a day — are my beauty hint.” She also shared that her soaping and scrubbing regimes really helped with pore cleansing. It sounds like the Golden Age of endorsements, too! Vlaske continued saying that it also really helped with circulation and healthy skin.
It sounds like Vlasek was really passionate about cleansing and exfoliating, which really does help the skin. We're glad she figured that one out.
Sometimes he would even tape his lines on the walls off camera. He also utilized another method to help him say his lines correctly. Reportedly, in the 1996 movie "The Island of Dr. Moreau," Brando was fed his lines through an earpiece.
This method, for the most part, seemed to work, but it had its downsides. The radio system he used would sometimes pick up signals from interfering radios, specifically police radios, resulting in him probably saying some interesting lines.
Marlon Brando Was Super Forgetful
Though he is praised as one of the greatest actors, it may shock you to hear that Marlon Brando did not memorize his lines! That’s right; the actor would use cue cards with his lines on them, print them out, and hide them around the movie set.
Brando can at least be given some credit for being strategic in the placement of his cue cards. He tried to hide them in places where he could read them in a natural way.
