“I’m always thought of as controversial or avant-garde or erotic or salacious,” Miles told PEOPLE in 1976. “But there isn’t anybody I know who wouldn’t live my life if they could.”

She continued, “I’m not one of those people that hire a press agent to get invited placed. I get invited because I’m fun. I have a good sense of humor. I look good. I’m not bad to have at a party.”

Miles also wasn’t afraid to show her more outrageous behavior, famously dumping a plate of food over the head of theater critic John Simon at the New York Film Festival in 1973 after he called her a “party girl and gate-crasher” in a review.

But she never regretted her social life as it served her well due to the connections she made.

“That’s my life — going out, working, getting laid,” she said. “And, you know, going to a party with me is a lot of fun ‘cause I move fast.”

She was married and divorced three times, first to William Miles from 1948 to 1950. She was later married to actor Gerald Price from 1952 to 1958 and later to New York City radio talk show host Ted Brown from 1963 to 1970. Miles had no children, but is survived by a sister.
