She signed up to a restrictive contract that didn't allow her to cut her hair short or have any children or even gain a single pound. Any violation to this contract and she wouldn't be paid.This was too much for her and she decided to have a son outside of marriage and not tell the studio about it. She kept her pregancy a secret and when the baby arrived she told everyone that he was her baby brother instead of her son. She kept this secret until her film career was more established and finally told everyone when her son was nineteen years of age.
