This is an interview, pretty recent, with Ms. Bacall from Vanity Fair. She's my favorite actress and the most beautiful woman in the world to me, but I must say, I was really disappointed with this 'interview'. Is it just me or does she seem extremely miserable and uninterested?

Lauren Bacall
When she taught her future husband Humphrey Bogart how to whistle in her first film, To Have and Have Not, Lauren Bacall became an instant icon. The husky voice and the bedroom eyes have made her a star of never-ending allure in 38 films and on Broadway. This month she appears in Lars von Trier’s Dogville and reflects here on Marie Antoinette, Fred Astaire, and big spending.
