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-American actress, and a major Hollywood star from 1925 through 1942. Her early films cast her as a spunky ingenue, but in the Pre-Code film era, she played sexually liberated women. She excelled in drama, in comedy, and in period roles. She gave well-received performances in adaptations of Noël Coward, Eugene O'Neill, and William Shakespeare. She was nominated six times for the Academy Award for Best Actress and won once, for her performance in the 1930 film The Divorcee.
