Crawford On Crawford

What did Joan Crawford think about daughter Christina’s book, Mommie Dearest? Not much: I plan not to read it. Why spoil days of your life reading a book that can only hurt you? It’s against my beliefs… I’ve learned that there are people who will hurt you if you let them–even if you don’t let them. I prefer to cut off people who want to hurt me, rather than to continue to give them power over me to go on inflicting pain.” [Vanity Fair]
