Nancy Kellerman talks about life, love and her long acting career. — Beck Starr/WireImage/Getty Image

Throughout her long career, Kellerman, 76, has been honest, down-to-earth, sultry, funny and unfiltered.

In her new memoir, Read My Lips: Stories of a Hollywood Life, Kellerman shares colorful tales of her years as an up-and-coming actress in the early 1960s, when Hollywood was a small community full of chance encounters.

As a performer and a person Kellerman made a glamorous impression on many she met, including actor Marlon Brando, Beatle Ringo Starr and AARP's very own Prime Time Radio host, Mike Cuthbert, who recalls crossing paths with her when he was a young man in New York.
