http://i592.photobucket.com/albums/tt8/MovieJoe/grant.jpgThe late film legend Cary Grant’s only child came from his fifth marriage to actress Dyan Cannon.

That daughter, Jennifer Grant, is now 45 years old and she has written a memoir called Good Stuff: A Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant.

The book is out May 3  and she writes about a dad who picked her up from school, who read to her, taught her life lessons and saved every photo, souvenir and scrap of paper that the two of them shared for the 20 years he was in her life.

In the book, she does not shy away from the rumors about her dad including the widespread belief that he was gay.

“Can’t blame men for wanting him, and wouldn’t be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back,” his daughter writes. “When the question arises, it generally speaks more about the person asking.”

Then again, she adds, “Dad somewhat enjoyed being called gay. He said it made women want to prove the assertion wrong.”

8 Remarks

  1. …”wouldn’t be surprised if Dad even mildly flirted back,” his daughter writes. “When the question arises, it generally speaks more about the person asking.” As a gay man who came out at 50 with a daughter, believe my daughter would respond similar with regard to her Dad.

  2. He was as gay as a goose.

  3. I’ve always thought of Cary Grant as a great actor and I think I would have enjoyed meeting him. I like to think his persona on screen was the same off.

  4. He was not as gay as a goose…..how can we give an opinin on someone we did not even know? He was one of the most talented actors of his time. Very classy! No one comes close to that man! I am glad he has a daughter to carry his generations on.

  5. Love, love, love, love, love, love, love him!!!

  6. no way was he gay~ not all good looking men are gay..

  7. mr.grant’s business is his own and his right. love mr.grant for what he left behind for all of us to enjoy.

    much love and respect, for a great gentleman.

  8. Cary Grant was synonymous with: grace, charm, poise, and loads of talent. To this day, “Arsenic and Old Lace”, is one of my favorite movies.
    His daughter Jennifer is a beautiful lady. Even though CG had a relationship with Randolph Scott for 11 years, back at that time in the movie industry, studios had the ability to force stars to marry. That said, CG was in love with D. Cannon.
