Saw her first movie when she was 4 years old in 1945.
For years and under the encouragment of movie studio personel she claimed she was born in 1908 when she was actually born in 1906.
In 1934, she made an arrangement with a doctor to allow her to help underwrite medical expenses for destitute patients who had worked in the movie industry.  Although she always denied doing so, there is evidence to support Joan Crawford paying medical bills for more than 390 cases.
Adopted 5 children. The second (named Marcus Gary Kullberg, renamed Christopher by Joan) was reclaimed by his birth mother shortly after the adoption in 1942.  The baby went on to be adopted again and was known as David Gary Deatherage for the rest of his life.
Avoided theatre work due to suffering from "paralysing stage fright"
