Personal Quote:

I've had an incredible relationship with my husband, with my family. I know they've had problems of their own, but we have never wavered in our closeness as a family. I've had a hell of a life. See more »

Trivia:

The Oscar-winning song "Beauty and the Beast" almost wasn't sung by Angela Lansbury. Because it was a slow, romantic ballad, something she wasn't used to singing, Angela suggested that another character should sing it. The filmmakers asked her to try it just once, and Angela nailed the song in that one take. It is that take that you hear in the film. See more »
