Stephen King, in his book "Stephen King: On Writing", cited her as one of his movie matinée idols.

Divorced twice, she had an on-and-off 15-year relationship with the late actor Jim Hutton, the father of Timothy Hutton.

Her father Charles Vedder was a jazz saxophonist.

Her musician/song-writing parents recorded quite a few 45-RPM records in the 1950s and 1960s. Their group was billed as The Chuck Vedder Trio, and they put out primarily rock-and-roll and jazz instrumentals. Yvette, a singer on the side, released a jazz CD in the 1990s called "Tribute to Charlie and Maria" that showcased some of her parents' songs. Both parents passed away in the 1990s.
