2. She wrote magazine articles
Mollie didn’t just drive. She didn’t just listen to everything that Ken told her about cars. She was knowledgable about them too. This was a passion for Mollie just as it was for Ken.
In fact, Mollie was so knowledgable that she wrote articles for magazines. There’s a scene in Ford v Ferrari that shows Mollie’s interest in cars. It goes to show why she and Ken got on so well. Yes, this is a fictionalized element of the story, but there’s no doubt that the real couple loved each other dearly.
1. Mollie was arguably the reason Ken succeeded
Behind every great man is a greater woman. That’s a common saying and one that is definitely true when it comes to Mollie and Ken. While Ken was the star of the family, he couldn’t have done any of it without his wife.
As mentioned in point four, she supported him 100%. However, it was more than just moving for him. She was the one that would push him when he needed it.
No matter how crazy a dream seemed, she would back her husband. If he had doubts, she would be the one to get rid of them. Christian Bale told the Irish Tatler that Ken wouldn’t have succeeded without Mollie.
