2She turned down roles in The Innocents (1961) and Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964).
3Was the 30th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for The Farmer's Daughter (1947) at the 20th Academy Awards on March 20, 1948.
4She was posthumously awarded a Golden Palm Star at the Palm Springs Walk of Stars on May 19, 2011.
5She was awarded 2 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 6100 Hollywood Boulevard; and for Television at 6135 Hollywood Boulevard.
6Was considered for the role of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939), which went to Vivien Leigh.
7She was friends with: Rosalind Russell, Irene Dunne, Jane Wyman, Eddie Albert, James Stewart, David Niven, Danny Thomas, John Wayne, and Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Reagan.
8She was the first actress to ever model makeup products for Max Factor.
9Despite her death in August 2000, she was still able to endorse George W. Bush for president in that year's November election by means of absentee ballot.
10She was honored as Turner Classic Movies Star of the Month for January 2013.
11Young had a low tolerance for foul language, so much in fact that whenever she went to set she brought with her a "swear box". Her swear box was used to hold money from cast and crew members who swore within her presence who in return would put money in the box. Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Mitchum put large sums of money in the swear box on a regular basis telling Young that the amount deposited would cover them for the day.
12Was voted America's Sweetheart of the 1930s.
13Miss Young was a pro-business Republican. She appeared in print and radio ads in support for such presidents as Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan. She even donated money to the Republican National Committee, and like close friend Irene Dunne, she was active in an array of conservative Republican causes.
14Turned down the part of Ellie Andrews in It Happened One Night (1934). Claudette Colbert was then given the role and won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance.
15Godmother of Marlo Thomas.
16Owned a successful cosmetics company in the 1960s that was headquartered in New York.
17Aunt of Robert Foster who, from 1975 to 1978, played the role of Grimsley, the vampire-mortician horror host of Fright Night (1970) on Channels 9 (then KHJ-TV) and 5 (KTLA) in Southern California.
18Marlene Dietrich said of her: "Every time she 'sins,' she builds a church. That's why there are so many Catholic churches in Hollywood.".
19Sister of John R. Young. All the Young children were child extras in silent films.
20In Italy, unlike other major Hollywood actresses, she didn't have an official dubbing voice. She was in turn dubbed by Lidia Simoneschi, Rina Morelli, Renata Marini (in her Oscar-winning performance in The Farmer's Daughter (1947)) and Giovanna Scotto most notably in the much-loved The Bishop's Wife (1947). Dhia Cristiani, Lia Orlandini and Andreina Pagnani also lent their voice to Young at some point.
21Loretta and older sisters Sally Blane and Polly Ann Young worked as extras during school vacations while young. Their mother ran a boarding house to support the family.
22Loretta's family moved to Los Angeles, California in 1915. Shortly after, her father abandoned the large family. John R. Young ("Jack"), was adopted by two sisters who changed his surname to Lindley. He later became an attorney and the father of five. He had little contact over the years with his blood family.
23She chose her own middle name, "Michaela" at the time of her confirmation as a teen. She was raised as a Catholic, and some Catholics back then were able to choose the name or names of a saint or saints whom they most admired and add it onto their own. She simply liked the name Michaela. Apparently, her mother never actually gave her one at birth.
24She was the mother of singer/songwriter Peter Charles Lewis (B. July 15, 1945), a former member of the infamous 1960s San Francisco rock band Moby Grape and Christopher Lewis, a film director.
25Caused a buzz in 1999 when she appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine looking a lot younger than her 86 years, "today's air brushing techniques can do wonders" was her explanation.
26In 1976, there was talk of a comeback role for Loretta, as Mother Cabrini in a biography of the first American to attain sainthood to be directed by Martin Scorsese. The project unfortunately never materialized.
27Country singer Loretta Lynn was named after her.
28Sister of Polly Ann Young and Sally Blane, half-sister of Georgiana Young, sister-in-law of Norman Foster, half-sister-in-law of Ricardo Montalban, mother of Judy Lewis.
29In her posthumously published autobiography, she admitted that her "adopted" daughter, Judy Lewis, was her biological daughter by Clark Gable.
30She died at the home of her sister Georgiana Montalban and Georgiana's husband, actor Ricardo Montalban, in the early morning of August 12, 2000.
31Loretta Young's third husband was Academy Award winning clothing and costume designer, Jean Louis. He was well known for designing for the stars at Columbia Studios, Universal and in his own salon in Beverly Hills. His most famous creations included the strapless gown for Rita Hayworth in the film Gilda (1946) as well as Marilyn Monroe's white sequined gown she wore to sing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy. Jean Louis married Loretta after the death of his first wife, Maggy, who was a personal friend of Loretta for over 50 years.
32Had an illegitimate daughter by Clark Gable. For years, this was covered up in Hollywood, and was presented as an adoption. The daughter's resemblance to both parents is uncanny. The daughter Judy Lewis later dabbled in acting before becoming a psychologist. Judy Lewis wrote a book "Uncommon Knowledge" with the truth of her parentage.
33In 1972, Miss Young sued NBC for violating her contract in allowing reruns of The Loretta Young Show (1953) to be shown, wherein audiences might have ridiculed her gowns and hairstyles, which were by then 10 or even 20 years out of date. The court awarded her more than a half-million dollars.
34Cast members in the film The Story of Alexander Graham Bell (1939) included not only Loretta Young but, portraying her character's sisters, her real-life, actress sisters as well: Polly Ann Young and Sally Blane. Further, portraying the fourth on-screen sister was a fourth real-life half-sister, Georgiana Young, although the latter was not a professional actress. (Years later, Georgiana, whom Loretta dubbed "Georgie", would appear occasionally on Loretta's television show The Loretta Young Show (1953).
35Miss Young's return to the screen following convent school came about rather fortuitously. A casting call was sent out by the producers of Naughty But Nice (1927) for her sister Polly Ann Young. Answering the telephone, the young Gretchen replied that her sister was unavailable and wondered if she herself might substitute. And so she did. It was merely a bit part, but it led to a movie contract and eventual stardom for Loretta Young.

#Quote
1No. They're all better than I was. We had our favorites in our period, too. Bette Davis and Ingrid Bergman were the two best actresses. They were both so honest, full of integrity, both of them. Both of them so vulnerable. I don't I think you'll ever see a better performance on film than Bette Davis in The Little Foxes (1941) or Now, Voyager (1942). Bette really really really was talented. Had the energy of a bull. And there wasn't a mean bone in her body.
2My favorite actresses now are Meryl Streep and Barbra Streisand. I think Barbra is the biggest all-around talent because her voice, her attitude, her acting and she's been tested. A lot of the other young ones I can't tell apart. All the blondes I can't tell apart.
3[presenting Best Picture at the 1982 Academy Awards] Reality is the main quality that most creative filmmakers seek to achieve in their work. They believe its a vital ingredient to a success of a motion picture. Fortunately, reality - contrary to some beliefs - is not restricted to sordid or shocking themes, nor gritty gutter language, nor gratuitous violence, et cetera. Reality is also healthy, wholesome, love and romance. It's courage, adventure, inspiration and heroism.This year some tasteful film makers have rediscovered that fact and I am delighted for one. And we are all of us enriched because of it.
4[when offered the role of Miriam in Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) after Joan Crawford became ill] I don't believe in horror stories for women and I wouldn't play a part like that if I were starving.
5On strategy: The trick to life, I can say now in my advanced age, is to stop trying to make it so important.
6A pleasant voice, which has to include clear enunciation, is not only attractive to those who hear it... its appeal is permanent.
7A face that is really lovely in repose can fall apart if, when its owner stars to talk, she distorts every feature.
8A face is like the outside of a house, and most faces, like most houses, give us an idea of what we can expect to find inside.
9A charming woman... doesn't follow the crowd. She is herself.
10A charming woman is a busy woman
11The easiest way to crush your laurels is to lean on them.
12If you want a place in the sun, you have to expect a few blisters.
13What you don't know intrigues you more than what you do know. I believed all those love stories - the hero was the hero - because that's what I grew up with. I loved the romance and the roses, but when it came to a more realistic life, I would back away.
14Our human connections are guided by God, and ultimately all of us are linked through His love. Thus, we have all already met, not as actress and fan but as His children, and we can never be lost to each other.
15I believe that if we have lived our lives fully and well, and have accomplished, at least in part, the things we were put here to do, we will be prepared - mentally, physically and spiritually - for our separation from this world.
16Wearing the correct dress for any occasion is a matter of good manners.
