Liza Minnelli urges ‘Garland’ filmmakers not to focus on her mum’s drug addictionApril 10th, 2009 - 4:38 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 10 (ANI): Hollywood actress Liza Minnelli has urged the makers of the flick based on her mother Judy Garland’s biography, Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland, to not just depict the dark side of her life by focusing on her drug addiction phase.
While Minnelli has no issues with Anne Hathaway playing her mother’s character in the flick, she wants that apart from the drug addiction, her mother’s talent and virtues should be highlighted in the flick.
“Well, I love Anne Hathaway. And I hope that it’s a good movie and I hope that it’s true,” the Daily Express quoted Minnelli as telling Canada’s City TV.
“You know, that they don’t just concentrate on the crap like they usually do,” she added.
Minnelli said that people always ended up talking just about her late mother’s problem’s, and forgot to talk about real facts like her doting mother quality and how wonderful she was as a human being.
“(I hope) that they talk about her the way she should be talked about which was she was a fabulous entertainer, a great mother and just a wonderful human being,” Minnelli added. (ANI)
