Why she might be annoying:

    Her nickname is 'Popper.'
    She uses a lot of profanity.
    She has a tattoo on her left hand, but can't remember what it was supposed to signify.
    She is the daughter of an exiled Russian aristocrat.

Why she might not be annoying:

    She is quite well-preserved for her age.
    She is blunt and plain-spoken.
    She calls the Academy Awards 'the creme-de-la-creme of bullshit.'
    She has a racy sense of humor.
    When told that a microphone in a studio was for radio broadcasts, she walked up to it and said: 'Fuck, fuck, fuck!'
    She also said: 'All you have to do is look like crap on film and everyone thinks you're a brilliant actress. Actually, all you've done is look like crap.'
    She can talk intelligently on just about any subject.
    Oh, and she has done many nude scenes.
