In a gracious acceptance speech at the Screen Actors Guild awards Sunday, Geoffrey Rush thanked Claire Bloom for putting the “The King’s Speech” cast “one degree of separation from Charlie Chaplin.”
Bloom, who turns 80 next month, played Queen Mary in the film.
In the Muckety database, she ranks up there with Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Taylor for her many connections.
Bloom made her first movie in 1948, and was cast by Chaplin four years later as a dancer in his movie, “Limelight,” which also featured the late Buster Keaton.
Bloom’s first husband was actor Rod Steiger.
Her third was novelist Philip Roth. Bloom wrote a scorching memoir, “Leaving a Doll’s House,” about their lives together.
