RIP: Jane Russell

She brought new meaning to the word cleavage. She was a talented actress, but it was her sex bomb image that made her a star.

It was Jane’s 38-inch bust line that came to the attention of Howard Hughes, the breast-obsessed millionaire who used his knowledge of aerodynamics to design a special bra for the 19 year old. (just excellent information…)

She survived the typecasting and her talent emerged in a variety of roles. Some of her most memorable parts include the 1948 The Paleface with Bob Hope and the 1953 Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with Marilyn Monroe.

Amazing actress and sexy as hell…

  1. Another great one… Gone! 😦

  2. I remember her TV commercials for Playtex bras in the ’70s and early ’80s… talking about bras for “us full-figured gals”… I imagine she made a fortune from them!

    I just checked YouTube, and they don’t seem to have any of them up.
