Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on playing the jilted bride in The Heartbreak Kid (1972)] Nobody believes me, but yes, I did have to test for the part, just like anybody else - even though the director was my mother, Elaine May. I've been told I look like Anne Bancroft, Ingrid Bergman, and from some angles, Tiny Tim.

Trivia:

As an actress, she was highly influenced by her real-life mother Elaine May. See more »
