Garcelle Beauvais was once asked whether she would ever appear nude on film. "If I ever actually do, it will be strictly for me," she declared. "To immortalize my body because, hey, it ain't gonna be like this forever." And if she were never to appear on celluloid? "For now," she replied, "a few Polaroids will do just fine!"
[Acting, Beauvais once agreed, is not brain surgery: "People always go, 'Oh, God, another model trying to become an actress.' But what do you expect? That I would go to medical school? It's a natural progression."]
