Then suddenly, she was gone from screens and premieres – although she found other things to do instead. So what happened to make her seemingly disappear from the world of acting? Well, over the years she’s given reasons why.

It might surprise you to know that Davis was actually a star right from the beginning. Yes, while working as a model she got cast in her first film – 1982’s Tootsie. And that flick picked up no less than ten Oscar nominations. Furthermore, it became the second most high-grossing film of its release year, so not a bad start by anyone’s standards.
