Liza Minnelli talks about her mom, Judy Garland
The great Liza Minnelli has a lot going on these days. There are live performances to do and an upcoming guest spot on Hot In Cleveland.
Liza with a Z talks about that and a host of other topics in a new interview with Huffington Post.
What caught my attention was the section of the interview where she talks about her legendary mother, Judy Garland:
“The biggest misconception people have about my mother is that she was so unhappy. I think people enjoy thinking that — some of them, anyway. They see the tragedy as opposed to the fact that she understood how to play tragedy.”
“I remember somebody at school once said something really mean about her: “Oh, Judy does too much of this or that, she drinks too much.” And I came home from school crying; my mother asked me what was wrong and I told her. And then she said, “You know what? You let everybody say what they’re gonna say, and we’ll go get a hamburger.”
