P.S. Хе-хе, ну история один к одному - Кальман. Королева чардаша (Сильва)
Не только охомутала аристократа, но и права качала - детей не хочу, хочу актерствовать
а самой уже 32, когда детей заводить собралась, в браке уже 3.5 года ...
Ну и приняли видать меры свойственнички. Папаша Софочки видать пособил тож...
Да и лобби одного БВ государства тоже, видать, не дремало - пора послужить нации...
Вот и говори о свободе творчества для женщин...
