In C. David Heymann's book "Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story" (2009), he claimed that Laraine had at one time been a lover of John F. Kennedy during the 1950s. Laraine's children sued Heymann on libel charges, claiming that their mother never had any kind of an intimate relationship with Kennedy. They based their suit on the fact that she strongly believed in the concept of marital union with her three husbands and that during the time he held office Laraine was not a supporter of his administration owing to both his sexual escapades and his liberal policies.
Endorsed George W. Bush in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections.

In 1951, RKO Radio Pictures tried to produce a film noir entitled "The Sins of Sarah Ferry". The story was about a courthouse clerk in Binghamton, New York, who finds herself falling in love with a beautiful liar who is accused of armed robbery as well as a hit-and-run charge involving a death. The cast would have starred Laraine Day, Fred MacMurray, Yvonne De Carlo, Hugh Beaumont, Glenn Ford, Howard Duff, and Evelyn Keyes, with the studio wanting to shoot on location in Binghamton and neighboring Johnson City. This project never materialized because the plot was considered too close to Double Indemnity (1944) and the studio never received a reply via phone call or standard mail from the Binghamton Courthouse or then Mayor Donald Kramer granting them permission to film on location in the area and negotiate a fair range of payment. Based on that neglect, the studio immediately canceled this project and moved on.

At MGM, she was told that if she did Keep Your Powder Dry (1945), she would be rewarded with the female lead in Undercurrent (1946) with Robert Taylor. When the role was given to Katharine Hepburn, Laraine left MGM and never returned.
