Shelley Winters


American actress who received Oscars for "The Diary Of Anne Frank," 1959 and "A Patch Of Blue," 1965. She was first nominated for an Oscar for the 1951 film "A Place In the Sun." Before films, she made her Broadway debut in 1941 with a film debut two years later, starring in "A Double Life." In addition, she has done a lot of TV, including playing a grandmother on the TV sitcom, "Roseanne."

She has been married and divorced three times. Her second husband, 1952-1954, was Vittorio Gassman and her third husband, 1957-1960, was Tony Franciosa. However, in her autobiography, "Shelley, Also Known As Shirley," 1980, she boasts of affairs with Burt Lancaster, Errol Flynn, William Holden and others.

She wrote another biography nine years later entitled "Shelley II."

Although she was hugely obese for a while, she was eventually able to lose some of the excess weight. Her weight was not the worst of her problems, however. Since 1995, at age 72, Winters has been in the Betty Ford Clinic, Hazelton, and St. John's Medical Center in Santa Monica, CA trying to kick painkillers and tranquilizers.

The actress had a heart attack on October 14, 2005 in Los Angeles. She died of heart failure on January 14, 2006 in Beverly Hills, CA.

Source Notes

Gauquelin Book of American Charts gave 1922; her obituary in the LA Times however said "Although most sources give Winters' birth date as Aug. 18, 1922, she told Variety's Army Archerd in 2004 that she had lied to studio head Harry Cohn when she signed with Columbia and was born two years earlier." PT notes that the 1930 census showed her age at the time as 8, giving her a birth year closer to 1922. The NY Times obituary also gave her a 1922 birth year. PT sent for the birth certificate but is unsure that she will receive a copy.
