Cary Grant’s Wife And Daughter Have Opened Up About Their Family’s Turbulent Past

Cary Grant is undoubtedly one of the most iconic actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. But behind the suave and debonair persona he presented on screen, there was a deeply troubled soul. Here’s a look at how his fourth wife and only daughter experienced life with the silver-screen legend.

Before Grant ever tasted fame, however, he had endured a difficult childhood. When the future star was just nine, his alcoholic father admitted his clinically depressed mother to a psychiatric hospital. Grant’s dad then told his son that his mom had in fact died – something that Grant only discovered wasn’t true at the age of 31. After that, Grant’s father swiftly remarried and abandoned his son to forge a new family.
