Personal Quote:

[on the death of her adopted daughter] I didn't take seriously how troubled she was. She was troubled from very early, certainly from the time she was five or six. If you come home and your child tells you that she's called a mental institution - that should have triggered something other than amusement on my part. See more »

Aunt of actor/director Griffin Dunne, actress Dominique Dunne and Alexander Dunne. See more »
