Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, Vanessa Redgrave likes to be impressive and to be considered special and unique. She is not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and is rarely content with staying in the background or in a subordinate position. She is a natural leader, and does not take orders from others very well. Redgrave must have something of her own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that she can develop and manage according to her own will and vision. Whatever Vanessa does, she does it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. She likes to put her own personal stamp on it.
