“The Nutty Professor,” and Elvis Presley’s popular song “Girls! Girls! Girls!” She has a remarkable total of 142 film and broadcast roles to her acting credit. Fans can anticipate seeing her final film with recognition when it debuts on February 24, 2023.
In the most recent theatrical release, “Quakers,” Nutty the Squirrel is voiced by the protagonist. She will regrettably not survive to see its premiere.
The Hollywood Reporter recently received a report from Andrew Stevens, the late actor Marylouise Stevens’ son, stating that his mother passed away on Friday, February 17, 2023.
He said that because she had Stage 7 Alzheimer’s Disease, she had been receiving hospice care for a sizable period of time.
Stevens, who was raised in Yazoo City, Mississippi, became fascinated with performing and modelling while attending Memphis State College.
She made her acting debut in the 1959 film “Say One For Me,” which starred Debbie Reynolds and Bing Crosby. For this part, she was given the prestigious Golden Globe Award.
Stevens’ television appearances on “General Electric Theater,” “Ben Casey,” “Flamingo Road,” and other programmes were in addition to her film roles. She additionally appeared three times in Playboy magazine.
“I did the best I could with the tools I had and the chances provided to me,” Stevens once reflected on her career. By the time I was seventeen, I had a child and was a divorced mother.
Additionally, “Playboy” caused as much damage as good. But despite that difficult beginning, I performed okay.
“It was an honour and a joy to work with Stella, who was one of the most wonderful and talented people I have ever worked with,” Stevens’ manager Maria Calabrese told Deadline.
She continued, “She was so much more than a sex symbol – which her adoring fans admired her for and understood. She was an incredible animal lover, horse wrangler, and rock and roller, so ahead of her time, and so much more than a sex symbol.
What a great loss and collection of work. She set the standard for powerful Hollywood women.
