  • Notes 
    • Her Best Actress Oscar for "Johnny Belinda" makes her the only wife of a future U.S. President (Ronald Reagan) ever to win such an award.
      Adopted mother of nationally syndicated radio talk show host Michael Reagan.
      Her name changed to "Jane Faulks" when she was unofficially "adopted"by the Faulks family, middle-aged neighbors of her single mother. Moved to So. California with Mrs. Faulks (Emma Reise or Reiss) when she was widowed on 25 March 1928
      Her husband Richard D Fulks was sometime mayor of St Joseph.
      One source on Ronald Reagan gave Wyman's date of birth as January 5, 1917, which would mean she was one of the first (and one of the very few) actresses to make herself older. Most likely if this is true it would have been due to her very early first marriage. She is a serious convert to Roman Catholicism, attending Mass with good friend Loretta Young. Both Young and Wyman failed to show for the 70th Annual Oscar get-together which featured former Oscar winners. That was unfortunate since it is likely the last time either would have had the chance to be seen aside from, of course, the eventual memorial tribute.
      Apparently broke up with Ronald Reagan over love of Lew Ayres, but that relationship failed in the long run.
      Mother of Maureen Reagan and Michael Reagan (I).
      Holds the record for the longest screen kiss, with Regis Toomey in You're in the Army Now (1941), at 3 minutes and 5 seconds.
