I was up for fabulous contracts after I left Goldwyn, but I think I was on the run. But I don't regret it. I never regret anything. I didn't sacrifice anything by leaving. You never sacrifice anything if you make the choice. It's a sacrifice only if you are pushed and pressed and you're not yourself. But if you got the choice, and you make the choice, you never sacrificed. I had a chance when I left Goldwyn, to stay in Hollywood and sign a big contract with another studio or to go with my husband, to go away ... I made that choice.
