Ernest Miller Hemingway came to Switzerland for the first time in January 1922 and stayed at the “Pension de la Forêt” in Chamby. In his room in this Swiss chalet, he wrote several chapters of “Farewell to Arms”, in which he recounts his toboggan outings at Les Avants and his walks in the snow at the “Bains de l’Alliaz”.
In 2008, Jamie Lee Curtis made waves when she posed topless in a pool on the cover of AARP magazine, confiding, "I think I have finally found what I hope beauty is, or at least, beauty as it applies to me." That beauty: comfortable self-acceptance. She told CBSNews in 2003, "To me, perfection is being happy with who you are. Look at me, I’m happy.”
