Andy rooney dating older women

"He went through the ladies like a hot knife through fudge,” said Ava Gardner of Mickey Rooney, whom she’d married when she was 19.It may seem disrespectful to dwell on this aspect of Rooney’s reputation so soon after his death, but it was hardly a secret in his lifetime: he was notorious. Rooney was 5ft 2in, red-headed and all teeth, the goofiest kid in California.To modern eyes, Andy Hardy is as dated as the characters played by Shirley Temple, and twice as grating.

My wife – age 39 1/2 – just forwarded me the below – a snippet from an old Andy Rooney segment.

While I tend to tune out most of his messages – focusing largely on his remarkably bushy white eyebrows, I think that Mr.

These women were always pitted against Andy’s ever-the-bridesmaid neighbour Betty, played by Judy Garland.

(I’ve always thought that explained quite a bit about Garland’s insecurities: for years she was presented as the childish foil, while others her age rose to sensual stardom.) Of course, behind the scenes, Rooney understood modern girls plenty well enough. (Eventually, he would marry four times more.) But while his steady supply of pretty co-stars gave him ample extra-curricular opportunities, he also wanted to break out of his Andy Hardy prison and grow up. “It’s not your life,” Rooney reported Mayer as saying. Not simply the success of his business but the colour of his world.

And yet, in 1939, he was the number-one box office attraction in the world.

Even Rooney himself wondered, in his 1991 memoir, Life Is Too Short: “What was my appeal?The way he was treated, meanwhile, was a crystallisation of the studio system.He knew he could play the field as long as he played the Hollywood game too: he’d always be protected. The title of his autobiography, Life Is Too Short, is curious.” The question wasn’t entirely rhetorical, as he went on to explain: “I was a gnomish prodigy – half-human, half-goblin, man-child, child-man.” Those qualities were as nothing compared to his flirting technique, which he characterised as “a combination of early Neanderthal and late Freud”.It was this, perhaps, that led his lover and co-star Lana Turner to dub him, in reference to his best-known role as Andy Hardy, “Andy Hard-on”.Usually the scrape had something to do with love, which was presented innocently, as a perennial conundrum.“Dad, I don’t understand these modern girls,” he whines to his father in Love Finds Andy Hardy (1938), as the judge prepares his parental lesson from an armchair.He explained to Gardner that if she named any other women in the divorce suit, she’d be finished.Gardner suggested she was planning to cite “incompatibility”. He asked her what she was thinking of doing after the divorce.The mirror he held up to his adopted home was one of family ties and small-town ethics, of problems that could be solved in 91 minutes.Now the world was at war: it was even more crucial that Andy Hardy’s world view should reign.
