“I live in Los Angeles, in a house built in 1931 by Clark Gable; to his specifications, that is. He built it for Carole Lombard, but she was killed in a plane crash before she’d had time to pick out the curtains. Since then, I’m told F Scott Fitzgerald lived here, and John Schlesinger. But not together. Also, Robert Stigwood threw the Saturday Night Fever party here on the night of its premiere. So, all those people have sat on my toilet. Incredible, isn’t it?”—Morrissey, 1999 (via spmorrissey)
