Lee Grant

Actress Lee Grant was born Lyova Haskell Rosenthal in New York City and spent her youth accumulating more experiences than most people have in a lifetime. She was a celebrated Broadway star and a Vogue “It Girl,” and was nominated for an Academy Award at 24. But then, she wound up on the Hollywood black list and had to fight to re-establish her career. Her memoir I Said Yes to Everything is set amid the New York theater scene of the 1950s and the star-studded parties of Malibu in the 1970s, and it tells Lee Grant’s personal story of political passion and Hollywood glamour.
