Even her wedding was a Hollywood affair. The church ceremony at Monaco's Saint Nicholas Cathedral was filmed by MGM and made into the documentary The Wedding in Monaco. The 600 guests included David Niven, Gloria Swanson, Ava Gardner and Conrad Hilton.
But Grace Kelly didn't much care for the Hollywood glitz. “Hollywood amuses me,” she once said. “Holier-than-thou for the public and unholier-than-the-devil in reality.”
She was close friends with Josephine Baker, and championed racial equality.
In 1993, she became the first American actress to appear on a U.S. postage stamp.
