Hayley Mills

I can't fool you, dear readers!  Many of you guessed that this photo, taken by Helmut Newton in 1965, is indeed Hayley Mills.  She was 19 years old when this photo was taken for British Vogue.

Hayley Mills is best known for her role as Pollyanna in the Disney movie of the same name from 1960.  She was awarded a special Juvenile Academy Award for her performance.  She appeared in several films for Disney, but returned to England after her contract expired in 1965.  There she has remained active in movies and television throughout the years.

In 2008, Mills was diagnosed with breast cancer.  She stated in January of this year that she has recovered.  She is still a working actress.  And she is still beautiful!
