Wallace Beery and Gloria Swanson (1916)  

On March 27, 1916, 30-year-old Wallace Beery married Gloria Swanson on her 17th birthday with her mother’s consent. The marriage was a disaster from the start. On their wedding night, Wallace got drunk and raped Gloria. After she became pregnant he tricked her into swallowing an abortifacient. 

In her 1980 autobiography Swanson on Swanson, Gloria describes the incident:

I was brushing my hair when he came into the room. He gave me a look that made me turn away, but he didn’t say anything. Then he turned out the light and in the darkness pulled me to him. I gave a coquettish little command to stop that I thought would make him laugh. Still he said nothing. He turned me and pushed me backward until I fell on the bed. He fell beside me, and there was nothing romantic about the way he began to repeat that I was driving him crazy.

He was raking his hands over me and pulling at my nightie until I heard it rip. I pleaded with him to stop, to wait, to turn on the light. His beard was scraping my skin and his breath smelled. He kept repeating obscene things and making advances with his hand and tongue while he turned his body this way and that and awkwardly undid his buttons and squirmed out of his clothes.

Then he forced my body into position and began hurting me, hurting me terribly. I couldn’t stand it. I begged him to stop, to listen to me, and finally when I couldn’t stand it any longer, I screamed. He told me to be quiet, not to wake the whole hotel, and he said it in a voice of quiet, filthy conspiracy. The pain became so great that I thought I must be dying. I couldn’t move for the pain. When he finally rolled away, I could feel blood everywhere.

Gloria’s mother Addie, in the room next door did not come to her aide and they never spoke about that night. Gloria discovered that she was pregnant a few months later. One morning she had asked

Wallace

to buy her something from the pharmacy to relieve her severe cramps. He bought her bottle of medication which she took without asking any questions. She became nauseous and passed out. When she woke up a nurse told her that she had lost her baby. She later discovered that

Wallace

had given her poison to abort their baby. She left him soon after this incident.

“Allegations are one thing but completely blaming the director isn’t fair aka the Lady Gaga video. It doesn’t matter if you want to be a “role model” or not, it’s your responsibility to be AWARE of what you’re doing. When you’re making & selling pop music for 14 year olds that is just a straight up fact. I’m not against/doubting people that have said they’ve encountered things with him (it’s not my place to say so) but the media acting as if Terry Richardson manipulated Lady Gaga into making a video about getting touched by R-Kelly or whatever is a whole other thing. She is 28 year old woman & fully capable/aware of what she was doing.“

Loretta Young with her daughter Judy Lewis

Loretta gave birth to her daughter Judy on November 6, 1935. Judy was the result of an affair with Clark Gable during filming of The Call of the Wild (1935). In 1935 extramarital affairs and out-of-wedlock pregnancies were so scandalous it could have ended both of their careers. Loretta, a devout Catholic refused to have an abortion.

She spent most of her pregnancy in Europe to avoid Hollywood gossip. She resorted to giving the baby, who had a false name listed as her mother on her birth certificate, to an orphanage and at 19 months old she formally adopted her biological daughter. Loretta did all she could to conceal Judy’s paternity. Judy inherited Clark’s trademark big ears so Loretta used bonnets to hide them. At 7-years-old Judy’s ears were surgically pinned back. 

Judy saw her father, who died in 1960, only once, when she was 15 but at the time she didn’t know he was her father. In 1958, Judy had an identity crisis and was hesitant to marry her fiancé so he told her Clark Gable is her father. She confronted her mother in 1966 who then finally revealed the truth. In her 1994 memoir, “Uncommon Knowledge,” Judy expressed her upset that her mother never admitted that her adoption was all a sham. Loretta refused to speak with her daughter for 3 years after her memoir’s publication. After years of rumors and criticisms, Loretta confessed in her memoir that Judy is her biological daughter and it was indeed Gable who fathered her baby, but she refused to allow the book to be published until after her death in 2000. Judy died in 2011 at the age of 76. 

In 2015, Linda Lewis,

Loretta’s daughter-in-law,

stated publicly

that

Loretta

had confided to her before her death that Gable had raped

Loretta, and that, though the two had flirted on-set, there had been no affair.
