Mabel Normand

From Movieline Magazine's "50 Best Insults in Hollywood History," Dec. 1999:

#6- Mabel Normand, one of the silent era's most popular comediennes, was a party girl and entirely the opposite of "America's Sweetheart" Mary Pickford, the box office queen. Setting an early high-water mark for Hollywood broadsides, she told an interviewer in the early '20s, "Say anything you like, but don't say that I 'like' to work. That sounds like Mary Pickford, that prissy bitch. Just say I like to pinch babies, and twist their legs. And get drunk."
