Rita Moreno

Monday, March 04, 2013

Rita Moreno talks about her career in on the stage and screen, and her new memoir, Rita Moreno. She’s one of the few artists to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony. She has also received a Golden Globe Award and a National Medal of Honor. She recently concluded a sold-out run of her one-woman show, “Life Without Makeup,” at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, California, and regularly appears in the television show, “Happily Divorced.”

leonard, just be quiet and listen. how many times does she have to tell you she came before the Puerto Rican wave to US? Eli Wallach was an old man by then? It was his first film. She's so lovely; just let her talk and be quiet instead of trying to show off knowledge, so much of which is erroneous.

What a lovely person - she has lived such an interesting life, clearly a smart and talented individual. Her voice is so pleasant, too - perfect for story-telling : )

How does she stay so young looking. I met her in person and thought she was in her 50's.

I've been watching Oz over the past few weeks and just want to say that Rita is absolutely great in it!
