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.
