Jane Wyman


Jane Wyman (1917-2007), actress & first wife of Ronald Reagan (when he still was a democrat). Photo by George Hurrell.

Jane Wyman's acceptance speech when receiving the Oscar for her role as a deaf-mute in Johnny Belinda (1948) went something like this: "I gratefully accept this award for keeping my mouth shut. I think I'll do it again."

Jane Wyman is to date the only ex-wife of an United States President (Ronald Reagan is the only US President to have been divorced).

  3. Jane Wyman divorced when Reagan was a democrat... Marilyn Monroe suicided... Hillary Clinton tolerating Monica Lewinski...
    I long for seeing Italian "democrats" involved in womens' affairs instead of robbery questions...

  5. I love her old movies. I love those old studio photos that made them look so perfect. Not loving Ronald Reagan quite so much.

  7. Jane was a beauty! Interesting bit of trivia about her being the only ex-wife of a U.S. President. Ronald Reagan is one of my favorite presidents, thanks for sharing this.
