biography of Midler, Bette

Bette Davis Midler
The Divine Miss M Bathhouse Betty
1 December 1945, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
5' 1"
Multi Grammy Award-winning singer/comedienne/author who has also proven herself to be a very capable actress in a string of both dramatic and comedic roles, Bette Midler was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on December 1, 1945. She studied drama at the University of Hawaii and got her musical career started by performing in gay bathhouses with piano accompaniment from 'Barry Manilow' (qv). Her first album was "The Divine Miss M" released in November 1972, followed by the self-titled "Bette Midler" released in November 1973, both of which took off up the music charts, and Bette's popularity swiftly escalated from there. After minor roles in several film/TV productions, she surprised all with her knockout performance of a hard-living rock-and-roll singer (loosely based on the life of 'Janis Joplin' (qv)) in _The Rose (1979)_ (qv), for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. In 1986, director 'Paul Mazursky' (qv) cast Midler opposite 'Nick Nolte' (qv) and 'Richard Dreyfuss' (qv) in the hilarious _Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986)_ (qv), and so began a string of very funny comedic film roles. She played an obnoxious wife who was the victim of a kidnap plot by her scoundrel husband, played by 'Danny DeVito' (qv), in _Ruthless People (1986)_ (qv), was pursued by CIA and KGB spies in _Outrageous Fortune (1987)_ (qv), played mismatched twins with 'Lily Tomlin' (qv) in _Big Business (1988)_ (qv) and shone in the tear-jerker _Beaches (1988)_ (qv). Bette matched feisty 'James Caan (I)' (qv) in the WWII drama _For the Boys (1991)_ (qv), made a dynamic trio with 'Goldie Hawn' (qv) and 'Diane Keaton' (qv) in _The First Wives Club (1996)_ (qv), was back on screen with DeVito for the tepid comedy _Drowning Mona (2000)_ (qv) and turned up in the glossy remake of _The Stepford Wives (2004)_ (qv). Apart from her four Grammy awards, Bette Midler has also won four Golden Globes, one Tony Award, and three Emmy Awards, plus she has sold in excess of 15 million albums worldwide. Most recently, she toured with her sassy "Kiss My Brass" show, and is promoting her album "Bette Midler Sings the 'Rosemary Clooney' (qv) Songbook".

-   _The Divine Bette Midler._


-   I try not to drink too much, because when I'm drunk, I bite.

-   [on acting] You have to think you're the greatest thing since sliced bread, but know you're not.

-   [during a concert in Brisbane, Australia 2005] It's been 26 years since I was last here. Before my fans were all taking drugs; this time they're all taking medication!

-   The worst part of success is to try finding someone who is happy for you.

-   I always try to balance the light with the heavy - a few tears of human spirit in with the sequins and the fringes.

-   I bear no grudges. I have a mind that retains nothing.

-   Get the trash off the street and back on the stage where it belongs.

-   In Hawaii I was the chief chunker in a pineapple canning factory. I used to come home smelling like a compote.

-   Underneath all this drag I'm really a librarian, you know.

-   I wouldn't say I invented tack, but I definitely brought it to its present high popularity.

-   [Asked by Parade Magazine whether she will retire after her show in Las Vegas] I think so. I must say, my high kick is just as high as it ever was, thanks to tai chi. But everything is a bit slower. The mind - things don't stick the way they used to. I feel like I'm going out with a bang. It's something my husband and I have talked about. I certainly don't want to die in harness. I'm not one of those people.

-   I want world peace. Please. Just for my sake, before I go. I also hope that 'Meryl Streep' (qv) has the good taste to step aside and let the rest of us have a crack ... but I know she won't. She has a really good agent. She's great, but I know there are some ladies behind her saying, 'Meryl, for God's sake, do you have to say yes to everything?'

-   I'm kind of healthy but has a little bit of arthritis, my eyes are a little shaky. I drank a little, I didn't do drugs to any great extent. I do get depressed but not like you do if you drink or do drugs. I have pretty bad melancholia, but I've found you can get rid of that by exercising. [I have therapy.] A lot of people don't love what they do and I do. I still love music and I love, love, love to dance. For most women - I can't speak for men - I'd say dancing is the key to happiness.

-   I love 'Barbara Hershey' (qv)and 'Lainie Kazan' (qv). I had no idea _Beaches (1988)_ (qv) was an 'uberweepie'! The nerve! It wasn't so bad. I co-produced it. It was a pretty damned good screenplay. I thought it was just another movie. I didn't think of it as a women's picture. I was so excited to be able to sing again and have a soundtrack.

-   Thank God for the gays. I don't know what would have happened but I know what did happen. Good for them and good for me.

-   I was riveting. Yes, it was a place where gay men met and had sex. I didn't see that. Someone sent me a picture showing me in a 1930s costume with my hair pulled back and all these cute young men in bathrobes watching me. It seemed very innocent. I would stand at the top of a little staircase with a towel round my head and act out whacked-out movie heroines. 'Patti LaBelle' (qv) played there, too. I wasn't there long, but I was there long enough to make a splash, ha-ha.

-   I've never been to a sex orgy in my entire life. Studio 54 was way worse than the baths.

-   I'm glad my daughter has been [university educated]. I sometimes think I should go back to school to learn French and music, but who would have me?

-   I'm an open-space person. I'm not a believer in sprawl. I don't particularly care for postmodern architecture. I believe in solid fare and building fair. I'm green to the core. This group I run in New York bought 60 community gardens and helped another group to buy 55 in congested neighbourhoods. I'm doing a similar thing in Hawaii, but it's harder there, the tracts are so big and there are these things about road zoning, dams, reservoirs ...

-   My parents (mother Ruth a seamstress, father Fred a painter) were not encouraging. My father put everybody down. Yeah, it was a real drag but he had his moments. His saving grace was a wicked sense of humour. He was a good provider. They were a team. They were at Pearl Harbour, they knew hardship. My mum was supportive, she had a tinge of showbiz fever and named me and my sisters after Hollywood icons. My dad was like, 'Get a job'. But that gave me something to fight against.

-   [on growing up in Hawaii]: We were very poor, it was a hard-scrabble childhood, not particularly happy. The best part was nature, which is so intense there. The sky is bright blue, the clouds are puffy, the grass is lush, it feels like you can touch the stars. But the people were not very nice. I was a white kid in a mostly Asian neighbourhood. You heard Hawaii was a great melting pot? Hooey. I had a very strong fantasy life. Sorry, what was the question? I'm bonkers. Where am I? Who am I? I love your socks.

-   I thought I would be an actorrrr. I thought I'd be 'Ethel Barrymore' (qv). I didn't know who she was, but she was my idea of an actorrrr. It seemed it would be more fun to be someone else rather than myself.

-   On desire: If somebody makes me laugh, I'm his slave for life.

-   I'm not just vain, I'm ignorant. I'm vignorant!

-   I celebrate everyone's religious holidays. if it's good enough for the righteous, it's good enough for the self-righteous, I always say.

-   [Accusing Lady Gaga of stealing her Dolores DeLago routine] I've been doing singing mermaid since 1980. You can keep the meat dress and the firecracker tits. Mermaid's mine.

-   As Joan Crawford once said, 'I'll show ya a pair of Golden Globes!

-   [on Susan Boyle] She is an act whose time has come. People love that voice. She sings straight. She doesn't do a lot of riffing. There are no trills, no thrills. Its straight singing and it comes from the heart.
