Liza Minnelli Journey
Her journey wasn't easy. Four public divorces and health issues nearly forced her to retire early. The Cabaret star's tragic story.
Liza Minnelli is 76 years old as of March 2022. She started acting when she was three years old.
At 17, she began her career. She won a Theatre World Award for her Off-Broadway performance in Best Foot Forward.
After suffering a stroke in 2000, she became a public figure. Her diagnosis of viral encephalitis was eventually made public.
Paralysis and difficulty communicating are just two of the side effects of this viral infection of the brain.
After waiting three years, she finally had kneecap surgery. After breaking her jaw in a terrible fall in 2007, she underwent surgery to reconstruct the jawbone.
Minnelli works despite health problems. When doctors said she'd be in a wheelchair for life in 2000, she quickly recovered and performed Liza's Back in New York and London.
