Liza Minnelli Overview:

Legendary actress, Liza Minnelli, was born Liza May Minnelli on Mar 12, 1946 in Los Angeles, CA. As of December 2022, Liza Minnelli was 76 years old.


Explosive, exhibitionist American singer and actress (the daughter of Judy Garland and director Vincente Minnelli) whose singing voice throbs with the nervous energy she scatters in all directions. Her striking "Pierrette" looks - black hair, big, dark eyes, full lips and small, rounded face - were seen now and again in films with varying success. After being nominated for an Oscar in The Sterile Cuckoo, she won the award for Cabaret. She is credited with an appearance in The King of Comedy, but seems to appear only as a cardboard cut-out.

Liza Minnelli was nominated for two Academy Awards, winning one for Best Actress for Cabaret (as Sally Bowles) in 1972.
