Davis Quizzed Warhol Over His Skin

Legendary actress BETTE DAVIS once quizzed iconic artist ANDY WARHOL over the state of his skin. The Baby Jane star - infamous for her acerbic put-downs - singled out the iconic artist for criticism at a party, according to fellow actress - and onlooker - Eileen Atkins. Warhol had suffered from the disease St Vitus' dance, which caused large pink blotches on his skin, but Davis seemed not to care about the artist's medical history. She says, "She looked at Andy and said, 'Why the hell don't you do something about your skin?' "I was just stunned that anybody could be that rude."
