Summary
The popular Oscar-nominated actress muses about movies, men, motherhood, and MS--from the directors she's worked with and admired to the men she's loved; from sipping Cokes with Elvis Presley to hangin' with the Beatles; from her secrets to succeeding in Hollywood without losing her sanity, to dealing with the fear and anxiety of being plagued by mysterious physical problems that eluded diagnosis for twenty years. At thirteen she was touring with a ballet company, at seventeen she was dancing alongside Elvis and Ann-Margret, and by thirty she was one of Hollywood's best loved comic actresses. In 2002 she announced she had multiple sclerosis and became a leading advocate in raising awareness about the disease.--From publisher description
Summary
The acclaimed comedic actress describes her experiences in the making of such films as "Young Frankenstein" and "Tootsie," her advocacy for multiple sclerosis awareness, and her adventures in motherhood
