Profile Bio Text
(7 September 1943 - November 10, 1947) (divorced) (1 child)
Rita Hayworth married Orson Welles on September 7, 1943. None of her colleagues even knew about the planned marriage until she announced it the day before they got married. For the civil ceremony she wore a beige suit, ruffled white blouse, and a veil. A few hours after they got married, they returned to work at the studio. They had a daughter, Rebecca Welles (1944–2004). After marital struggles, and a final attempt at reconciliation, Hayworth said he told her he didn't want to be tied down by marriage.
"During the entire period of our marriage", she declared, "he showed no interest in establishing a home. When I suggested purchasing a home, he told me he didn't want the responsibility. Mr. Welles told me he never should have married in the first place; that it interfered with his freedom in his way of life."
