Loved her in Bringing Up Baby...

Though I can't say she's my all time favorite actress, I do like her (politics aside)... But, I knew I wouldn't rate as a Grace Kelly, so I suppose comparing to good ole Kate is realistic.

H/T: Esther!

Fair warning: Modesty alert! If you go to take this quiz, there is a Playtex-ad of sorts, with images of movie stars from the '50s on the first "page." Not scandalous, but just wanted to make sure everyone is aware...

You are a Jackie. "I do everything the right way."

Jackies are realistic, conscientious, and principled. They strive to live up to their high ideals.
