Fine Tuning My "Hollywood-ness"

As I said, that test was very right on. There was however one question that I really battled between which one to answer (they were both very applicable to me), and there were some aspects of that personality (Bette) that are not mine. Erica asked me why Betty Davis bugs me. Well, I think it's her grumpiness. You don't see her smile much or get all joyful about things. That's not like me. I also was always bugged by the sound of her voice. Petty I know.
SO, here's the kicker. I did the test again with that one question being different and it was very accurate too but hit more of my bouncy side. So, I concluded I'm a mix of the two ladies. Like I said though, the kicker was that it's the one other lady in Hollywood who is a little quirky in my mind! It's probably the outgoing side of me that enjoys calm and graceful ladies like Olivia de Havilland (do you know she is till alive!)and Donna Reed.

Anyway...my results when answering that one question differently were:
