"I never screwed around during a movie. It was always afterward. At least I'd try to wait until afterwards."---Mamie Van Doren to Los Angeles Magazine, November 2004.

"I think the term bombshell comes from the bullet bra that I created when I was at Universal. My breasts are a mile wide, I am a 34 with a triple F cup. What I wanted was a bra to wear under a turtleneck sweater that would point the nipples out because I thought that it would be hot looking. Universal made only one and lined it with satin. That was the bullet bra.."---Mamie Van Doren to Los Angeles Magazine, November 2004.
