A Beautiful Clown

Lucy's writers often called her a "beautiful clown". No matter how ugly or frumpy the script called for, Lucy didn't care. In fact, she loved dressing up and putting on wigs and makeup that were, shall we say, less then flattering. Lucy was different than most actresses of the day. Most of them would be horrified if any role would require them to have their hair mussed or anything to ruin their make up or in fact, do anything to make them in anyway unattractive.

Not Lucy! She would do anything the script called for, no matter how awful it made her look, in order to get a laugh and thereby entertain her audience.
