HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHARON TATE | January 24, 1943 - August 9, 1969
“If you just take it down to bare facts, the reason for living is the reason you make it. I mean the brain was made to create.”
Sharon Tate in The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)
Happy Birthday Sharon Marie Tate! ♥
January 24, 1943 – August 9, 1969
I’d like to be a fairy princess — a little golden doll with gossamer wings, in a voile dress, adorned with bright, shiny things. I see that as something totally pure and beautiful. Everything that’s realistic has some sort of ugliness in it. Even a flower is ugly when it wilts, a bird when it seeks its prey, the ocean when it becomes violent. I’m very sensitive to ugly situations. I’m quick to read people, and I pick up if someone’s reacting to me as just a sexy blonde. At times like that, I freeze. I can be very alone at a party, on the set, or in general, if I’m not in harmony with things around me.
-Sharon Tate as quoted in “Who I’d Like To Be In My Next Life,” Eye Magazine Vol. 2 No. 1 (January 1969)
