Early Life

Liza Minnelli, a singer and actress, was born on March 12, 1946, in Los Angeles, California. While her first appearances were with her superstar mother, Judy Garland, Minnelli has been able to step out of her mother’s shadow and establish a successful career as a performer in her own right. In addition to Garland, Liza’s father, Vincente Minnelli, was a well-known director in Hollywood.

Minnelli made her feature film debut as a toddler in the 1949 musical comedy In the Good Old Summertime, alongside her mother and Van Johnson. Minnelli’s career in entertainment did not begin in earnest until later, despite her appearances in her mother’s concert productions.

Minnelli’s parents divorced in 1951, and she split her time between them. In 1952, her mother married producer Sid Luft, and Minnelli became a big sister to half-siblings Lorna (born in 1952) and Joey (born in 1955). Minnelli’s relationship with her mother deteriorated over time as she tried to care for Garland, who suffered from a pill addiction and depression.

Her father remarried in the 1950s and had a daughter, Christiana Nina, with his second wife, Georgette Magnani. Minnelli was close to her father for the rest of his life.

Aspiring Actress

Minnelli dropped out of school as a teenager and moved to New York City to pursue a career on the stage. In 1963, she landed a role in the off-Broadway revival of the musical Best Foot Forward, which earned her rave reviews. Minnelli also appeared on her mother’s short-lived television series, The Judy Garland Show, around this time. Minnelli also performed with her mother at the Palladium in London during Garland’s tenure, and she wowed both audiences and her mother with her vocal prowess. Minnelli told The New York Times, “It was as if Mama suddenly realized I was good.”

In 1965, Minnelli made her Broadway debut as the title character in Flora, The Red Menace. The light musical comedy lampooned the communist movement of the 1930s. Despite its brief run, the musical earned Minnelli a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She was only 19 at the time, making her one of the award’s youngest winners.

Minnelli went on to co-star with Albert Finney in the dramatic comedy Charlie Bubbles (1967). She received her first Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in 1969 for her performance as an eccentric misfit named Pookie in the film The Sterile Cuckoo. Minnelli suffered a major setback while filming Otto Preminger’s Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (1969). On June 22, 1969, her mother died of an accidental drug overdose.

Mainstream Success

Two years later, Minnelli landed her most famous film role, as floundering nightclub singer Sally Bowles in the musical Cabaret (1972), set in 1930s Germany. The film, directed by Bob Fosse, showcased her singing abilities as well as her acting range. Minnelli won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her efforts. The film was nominated for eight awards, including Best Supporting Actor for Joel Grey and Best Director for Fosse. Liza with a Z, a television special produced by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, continued Minnelli’s hot streak. In 1973, the show won an Emmy for Outstanding Single Program—Variety and Popular Music.

Following those huge successes, Minnelli’s film career took a turn for the worse with flops like Lucky Lady (1975) and A Matter of Time (1976), both directed by her father. She had the opportunity to work with legendary director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro on the musical New York, New York (1977). Despite a stellar cast and crew, the film was a box office flop and received mostly negative reviews.

Working with Scorsese once more, Minnelli returned to Broadway in 1977 with The Act. She portrayed a washed-up singer attempting to resurrect her musical career. Minnelli won her second Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her outstanding performance. A few years later, she had another box office success with the romantic comedy Arthur (1981). Minnelli co-starred in the film with Dudley Moore as a waitress who falls in love with a wealthy but frequently inebriated man.

Veteran Performer

Minnelli was ready to confront her own drug and alcohol issues by the mid-1980s. She sought treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic. Minnelli toured extensively after obtaining sobriety and appeared in several forgettable films, including Rent-A-Cop (1987) and Arthur 2: On the Rocks (1988), a sequel that failed to recapture the magic of the 1981 hit.

Minnelli lost her father to heart failure in 1986. The following year, she appeared in the critically acclaimed documentary Minnelli on Minnelli: Liza Remembers Vincente, which received several Emmy Award nominations. Around this time, she collaborated with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. on The Ultimate Event, a world tour.

Her acting career has taken off in recent years, thanks to her comedic guest appearances on Arrested Development in 2004 and 2005, as well as her role in Sex and the City 2. (2010). However, Minnelli has primarily focused on live performances. Every year, she performs a number of concerts all over the world.

Minnelli was married to Jack Haley Jr. from 1974 to 1979. Her longest marriage was with sculptor Mark Gero, which lasted from 1979 to 1992.
