Mike Gencarelli: What made you decide to write your memoir?
Jennifer Grant: My whole life people have asked me to do something on my dad, since my father passed away actually. About five years ago people very close to me started recommending I do something and that is what got my attention. We were always a private family especially my father, so I never really considered the idea of doing anything. I brought the idea to my step-mother and she said it was a wonderful idea and that I must do it. I thought wow this is something that my dad may have actually welcomed and maybe it was just me that’s been sort of greedy with my memories. So I decided I should open up and speak.
Jennifer Grant is the daughter of late Hollywood legend Cary Grant. She recently released her memoir called “Good Stuff: a Reminiscence of My Father, Cary Grant”. Media Mikes had a chance to chat with Jennifer about her father and her new memoir.
After his death in 1986, Grant’s daughter Jennifer anonymously donated the contents of his closet to charity. His suits went to a nonprofit for men seeking work, while his pajamas and a cashmere sweater went straight to Goodwill. And even the item with arguably the most sentimental value — an overcoat whose interior was embroidered with the message “Dad, I love you. Jennifer” — found a new home. Jennifer Grant gave it away to a homeless man eight years ago.
On a découvert Jennifer Grant dans plusieurs épisodes de la série Beverly Hills, 90210, mais également dans Walker Texas Ranger, Les Experts et Friends.
