Personal Quote:

[talking about her life in Cuernavaca, Mexico, where she moved after she left Hollywood] Occasionally even here people find out that I was once a child star, but the name confuses them and they say, "So this is whatever happened to Baby Jane!" See more »

Trivia:

She reportedly made at least $2 million in her early career, but her parents' bad management and free spending left her in poverty. This resulted in several nervous breakdowns in her young adulthood. See more »

Nickname:

Diana Serra Cary

Star Sign:

Scorpio
