MORE INFO ON SHELLEY WINTERS: Shelley Winters (August 18, 1920 - January 14, 2006) was an-winning Americanwho appeared in dozens of films, as well as on stage and television.

Winters was born Shirley Schrift in, the daughter ofparents Rose (Winter), a singer with, and Jonas Schrift, a designer of men's clothing. Her family moved towhen she was three years old. She studied in the Hollywood Studio Club, sharing the same bedroom with another beginner,.

As theobituary noted, "A major movie presence for more than five decades, Shelley Winters turned herself into a widely respected actress who won two." Winters originally broke into Hollywood as "the Blonde Bombshell", but quickly tired of the role's limitations. She washed off her makeup and played against type to set up's beauty in,still a landmark American film. As thereported, the general public was unaware of how serious a craftswoman Winters was. "Although she was in demand as a character actress, Winters continued to study her craft. She attended's Shakespeare classes and worked at, both as student and teacher."

Her first movie was What a Woman! (1943). Working in films (in mostly bit roles) through the forties, Winters' first achieved stardom with her breakout performance as the victim of insane actorin's, in 1948. She quickly ascended inwith leading roles in(1949) and(1950), opposite. But it was her performance in, a departure from the sexpot image that her studio,, was building up for her at the time, that first brought Shelley Winters acclaim, earning a nomination for thefor.

Throughout the 1950s, Winters continued in films, most notably in's masterpiece, 1955's, withand. She also returned to the stage on various occasions during this time, including a Broadway run in. In 1959, she won anforforand another for(1965).

Notable later roles included her lauded performance as the man-hungry Charlotte in's, oppositein, as the once gorgeous, alcoholic former starlet "Fay Estabrook" in Harper (both 1966), in(1972) as the ill-fated Belle Rosen (for which she received her final Oscar nomination), and in(1976). She also returned to the stage during the 1960s and 1970s, most notably in'. Unfortunately, her prestigious work during this period tended to be undermined by her forays into camp kitsch with films like 1968'sand 1971's. Always conscious of her Jewish heritage"€"she had first learned her trade in the"€"she donated her Oscar forto thein.

As the Associated Press reported, "During her fifty years as a widely known personality, Winters was rarely out of the news. Her stormy marriages, her romances with famous stars, her forays into politics and feminist causes kept her name before the public. She delighted in giving provocative interviews and seemed to have an opinion on everything."

That led to a second career as a writer. Though not an overwhelming beauty, her acting, wit, and "chutzpah" gave her a love life to rival Monroe's. In late life, she recalled her conquests in autobiographies so popular they undermined her reputation as a serious actor. She wrote of a yearly rendezvous she kept with, as well as her affairs with,and.

Winters suffered a significant weight gain later in life, frequently stating that it was a marketing tool, since there were plenty of prominent normal-weight older actresses but fewer overweight ones, and her obesity would enable her to find work more easily. In 1973 Winters even put on a short-livedmusical revue entitled "The Hoofing Hollywood Heifer", co-starring Charles Nelson Reilly and Bongo, a tap-dancing chimp. Although it closed after only eight performances, this show was applauded for its sheer campy bravado by many critics, one of whom stated that Winters was a "Whale of a Talent looking for a sea of applause big enough to rest her massive girth."

Audiences born in the 1980s knew her primarily for the autobiographies and for her television work, in which she played a humorous parody of her public persona. In a recurring role in the 1990s, Winters played the title character'son the.Her final film roles were supporting ones, as's wife in(1996), and as a bitter nursing home administrator in 1999's.

She was married four times. Her husbands were:

Capt. Mack Paul Mayer, whom she married on, 1943; they divorced in October 1948. Mayer was unable to deal with Shelley's "Hollywood lifestyle" and wanted a "traditional homemaker" for a wife. Winters wore his wedding ring up until her death and kept their relationship very private.

, whom she married on April 28, 1952; they divorced on June 2, 1954. They had one child, Vittoria born February 14, 1953, a physician, who practices internal medicine atin. She was Winters' only child.

, whom she married on May 4, 1957; they divorced on November 18, 1960.

, on January 14, 2006, hours before her death.

Shortly before her death, Winters married long-time companion, with whom she had lived for nineteen years. Though Winters' god-daughter objected to the marriage, the actress, performed the wedding ceremony for the two at Winters' deathbed. Non-denominational last rites for Winters were also performed by Kirkland, a minister of the. Winters also had a romance withthat became a long-term friendship. She starred with him in the 1951 film,, as well as in a 1957 television production of's novel,.
