She was willing to do—and bare—anything to be a star.
Looking at the above cover and interior page from the tabloid Midnight, you’re probably asking yourself: Who is Caroline Lee? Well, she was an aspiring actress from Hong Kong who had complete faith she was going to be the hottest thing to hit Hollywood since buttered popcorn. Just listen to her: “I’m sure I’ll be a success because men will flock to the theaters to see me. I would like to be in a movie in the nude. That would make me America’s biggest star overnight.” Oh, that sad, sweet child. Apparently someone forgot to tell her that wannabe actresses litter the streets of L.A. like paper cups. Of the five Caroline Lees in the IMDB database, she’s none of them, so obviously, she never got to be a star. But her sheer bravado makes us wish we could be young and arrogant forever.
