Hayley Mills Cam Show
The daughter of acclaimed British actor Sir John Mills was still a preteen when she began her acting career and was quickly thrust into the spotlight. Now, in her charming and forthright memoir, she provides a unique Hayley Mills into when Hollywood was still ‘Tinseltown’ and the great Walt Disney was at his zenith, ruling over what was at least in his own head still a family business.
This behind-the-scenes look at the drama of having a sky-rocketing career as a young teen in an esteemed acting family will offer both her childhood impressions of the wild and glamorous world she was swept into, and the wisdom and broader Hayley Mills that time has given her.
Hayley will delve intimately into her relationship with Walt Disney, as well as the emotional Hayley Mills of being bound to a wholesome, youthful public image as she grew into her later teen years, and how that impacted Hayley Mills and her choices—including marrying a producer over 30 years her senior when she was 20!
With her regrets, her joys, her difficulties, and her triumphs, this is a compelling read for any fan of classic Disney films and an inside look at a piece of real Hollywood history.
Her memoir touches on growing up in a family of performers, thoughtfully considers life as a child star, and finds honest, often very funny, ways to examine what it means to live in and around the spotlight Forever Young is an unexpected treat: a brave and revealing memoir with Hayley Mills a dull passage. The result is a luminous work commensurate with the unforgettable movies that made Mills an icon.
One of its joys Hayley Mills watching Mills grow up on the page, learning to love her craft.
