I don't care about other people's opinions,
That says it all.
I was trying to say that exact same thing, albeit a little more gently.

I just started reading Veronica Lake's memoir, the aptly titled, "Veronica: The Autobiography of Veronica Lake." I'm only at the beginning of it, but she seems very matter of fact and not at all enamored of Hollywood. She treated it like a job, in the same way that she treated her (later in life) bartending job as just a job.
When Veronica Lake was promoting her autobiography in the UK, she received offers to work on the English stage. One of the roles she played, to rave reviews, was Blanche DuBois is a revival of A Streetcar Named Desire. In her autobiography, she candidly discusses her own alcoholism, and she probably drew on her own experience to portray that aspect of Blanche's character. She would have already been suffering from cirrhosis of the liver which would be officially diagnosed in 1973.
