Profile Bio Text
Norma was known as the queen of the MGM lot. Some believed it was because her husband was the boy wonder Irving Thalberg. Joan Crawford (who called her "Miss Lotta Miles" referring to a pre-stardom ad Shearer appeared in), Rosalind Russell, and Myrna Loy despised Norma. She was able to remain close to other MGM stars such as Jeanette MacDonald, Jean Harlow, Judy Garland, and Lana Turner. She even garnered the respect of the elusive Greta Garbo.

Edith Norma Shearer (August 10, 1902 – June 12, 1983) was a Canadian actress. Shearer was one of the most popular actresses in North America from the mid-1920s through the 1930s. Her early films cast her as the girl-next-door, but for most of the Pre-Code film era (beginning with the 1930 film The Divorcee, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress), she played sexually liberated women in sophisticated contemporary comedies. Later she appeared in historical and period films.
