Lee Grant

I thought she was dead. She's almost 93. Why do we never hear about her?

And btw, did she take her name from the 2 Civil War generals?

She lost an actor's prime years due to the blacklist. By the time she made a comeback in Peyton Place, she was almost 40. So the career she managed to have since then is quite remarkable.

Lee Grant was always one of my favorites! Smart smart smart, political, progressive. I always loved her as an actress to have seen her work from behind the camera has been equally wonderful. She has inspired new generations of women to direct, she and Penny Marshall really revolutionized film making.

Adding years to your age seems so weird, but maybe they did it to start out earlier and seem more mature from the get go? If Lee Grant really is in her 90's, she has to be the healthiest, most active 90-something I've ever seen in my life. The face work is horrifying, but I've seen 20-somethings that are more sluggish than she is.

Eva Marie Saint is probably the best looking celebrity that’s 90ish. If she’s had work it’s been minimal. Wouldn’t say Lee looks horrifying but has that obvious plastic surgery look. Still thinks she’s great.

Cut some slack for Lee. She's in her 90's and like almost all actresses in Hollywood she's had facial plastic surgery. With or without it she's not going to look sparkling young anymore. She look okay for her age and has survived.

by Anonymousreply 7810/12/2018

Grant admits to having a face lift at like 30.

She always had a thing about her age because she felt like she lost the prime years of an actress' career because of being blacklisted. She bounce back pretty well from the blacklisting and did a number of good films in the 70s.

One of her problems though was she had a husband who was constantly trying to direct and make his own films so she had to take lots of bad movies for because the needed the money.

(Although those bad films are some of the ones on DL that we like the most: Omen 2, Airport 1977, Valley of the Dolls.........and of course The Swarm.)

by Anonymousreply 7910/12/2018

Regardless of the atrocious facelift, she is very sharp and mobile for a woman in her 90s. I just watched her in the 1982 film Visiting Hours and her facelift looked bad then.
