Liza Minnelli: “I Feel About 112 Years Old.”


Yes, that’s what Liza Minnelli told New York Times‘s Jacob Bernstein.

But that’s just when she’s not being hit by a follow spot.

Here’s her full statement:

“From the waist up, I’m Dorothy’s daughter.

From the waist down, I’m the Tin Man’s kid.

I feel about 112.

Until I hit that stage, and then age disappears.”

Great quote.

Descriptive, funny, self-deprecating–everything a celebrity quote should be.

But enough about her.

I happen to be mentioned in the article.

And I’m in two photos in the paper! You can see them in the slide show–images 2 and 8–with pals like Lynn Yaeger and Robin Byrd.

And I don’t look a day over 111 (though from the waist down, I’m pretty tinny myself).
