Sterling Hayden Facts
Had four children with Betty Ann de Noon. The couple married and divorced three times and went through a nasty custody battle.

Was first choice of producers Richard D. Zanuck and David Brown to play the role of Quint in Jaws (1975), but Hayden's tax problems with the US government--he lived outside the country and if he entered the US he would have been arrested--precluded his taking the role.

Dropped out of high school at the age of 15 and became a sailor, earning his master's license by the age of 21.
