Liza Minnelli & Lorna Luft discuss mom Judy Garland’s legacy ahead of late star’s 100th birthday

Via PEOPLE: Judy Garland’s children are keeping her legacy alive ahead of what would have been the late star’s 100th birthday.

Liza Minnelli and Lorna Luft said that their mother was anything but “tragic” as they reminisced about the Wizard of Oz star last week during a joint appearance on Entertainment Tonight, more than 50 years after Garland’s death in 1969.

“That’s the thing that bugs me the most,” Minnelli, 75, said. “They would say tragic Judy Garland and I’d say, ‘Oh shut up.’ It was her humor and her kindness. … With her family, she was hilarious.”

Luft, 69, shared a similar sentiment. “I’ve always said this … we’ve all had tragedies in life, but we’re not tragic. And she had tragedies, but she was not tragic, and she didn’t pass it on to us,” she said.
