Biografia

De família humilde, Ava Gardner, “o animal mais lindo do mundo”, foi descoberta por Barney Duhan, um caçador de talentos da MGM, que concluiu que, apesar dela ser uma péssima atriz, fotografava muito bem. Começou ganhando 50 dólares por semana, tirando fotos e estreando em “We were dancing”, de 1942, seguido de várias aparições sem crédito. Seu primeiro marido, Mickey Rooney, conseguiu alguns papéis para ela, com o vasto conhecimento que ele tinha na MGM. Foram mais de sessenta filmes ao longo da carreira, trabalhando ao lado de grandes diretores como John Ford e George Cukor.
Apesar de inicialmente não ter sido considerada uma boa atriz, moldada por aulas de dicção e interpretação, Ava conseguiu desenvolver-se e chegou a ser indicada para o Oscar por Mogambo. Morreu na Europa, onde morou por duas décadas.
