He was America's first pop idol, and she was called "Hollywood's sexiest animal." Reporters dubbed the couple “God-kissed,” as each of them had almost invisible scars on their faces. Both gentle schoolgirls and mature ladies went crazy over him, and she changed men like gloves, was not afraid of anything and did not value anything. Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner … Fate wanted them to meet.
From meeting to wedding1950 … Frank Sinatra was already a famous actor, successfully started his career in cinema and was the first in all kinds of ratings. Ava Gardner, who by that time had little interest in cinema, did not lag behind Sinatra in popularity. She was quite in demand in Hollywood, many considered this green-eyed cat the most beautiful woman in the world, and the line of fans with expensive gifts seemed to be endless.
Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner first met in 1950 at the screening of the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes starring Marilyn Monroe. They immediately drew attention to each other. The sexy and open-minded Sinatra really liked the actress, he was not like everyone else with whom she happened to meet. True, Ava was in no hurry to reveal her cards - she was waiting for attention, gifts, rewarding Sinatra only with condescending glances, and he suffered, suffered and went crazy with passion and jealousy.
And then it turned out that they are very similar! Both simply loved Italian food, drinking, boxing and night trips. Everything would be fine if not for one "BUT" - Frank was married. However, this did not prevent the couple in love from appearing everywhere together under the disgruntled murmur of the champions of family values.
As soon as Sinatra got a divorce, the couple went down the aisle. The wedding ceremony took place in the city of Philadelphia.
The wedding took place as soon as Frank Sinatra obtained a divorce from his first wife, and the wedding ceremony took place in Philadelphia. Ava presented her husband with a gold medallion with her photograph as a gift. Frank turned out to be more pragmatic - he gave his wife a mink stole with sapphire clasps. It would seem that there is a calm family life ahead.
It's hard to be aroundBut such a coveted wedding did not bring peace of mind between Frank and Ava. They were terribly jealous of each other, constantly quarreled, then made peace. And so it is endless. Moreover, while Ava's career was going uphill, Frank's business was going downhill, and he could not come to terms with the fact that the “wet nurse” in the house was his spouse. True, he soon records ballads, and again crowds of fans appear next to him, who distracted him from family life.
After a year of family life, they began to move away from each other. She has been filming in films, he is constantly on tour. And again scenes of jealousy, which ended in passionate reconciliation in the night's embrace.
Their marriage was finally finished off by the depression of Ava, who really wanted a child, due to a miscarriage. Frank, meanwhile, started an affair with Marilyn Monroe, whom he had previously called "just a girlfriend."
But still…In the mid-1960s, the couple broke up. Ava Gardner had many more novels, but she no longer tied herself by marriage. In her declining years, she finally admitted: "I have never loved anyone in my life as much as Frankie." In the 1980s, Ava suffered two strokes and remained bedridden. Frank was there.He took out the best medicines, swung in his arms and whispered words that he did not have time to say in the days of stormy youth. After all, despite the two following after their separation of marriage and a crowd of mistresses, he loved her alone. Ava Gardner passed away in 1990 at the age of 68.
Frank survived his love for eight years and died in 1998 in the arms of his fourth wife. They put a bottle of whiskey in his coffin, and on the tombstone, as he asked, they wrote: "The best is yet to come."
Interesting and the story of Andy Warhol's mad muse, who believed that "people should fall in love with their eyes closed."
