Pictures of young Liza Minnelli feature the glamorous superstar of the hit film Cabernet during her earlier years. Known for her famous mother, acting and singing skills and well-publicized personal life, the Oscar winner was once an up-and-coming starlet and these photos chronicle just that time.
As the daughter of the legendary Judy Garland, Minnelli inherited her mother’s excellent stage presence and vocal abilities. Minnelli began her career in an unusual way. Unlike other children of famous Hollywood stars, she never delved into stardom in her childhood or teenager years. Instead, she studied theater in her early 20s and regularly performed as a singer in New York night clubs.
Minnelli's first major gig was in the 1969 film The Sterile Cuckoo which instantly caused her to receive international attention. Minnelli went on to star in Cabernet in 1972, a performance that earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress. In the 1980s, she toured with other major figures in the music industry, Frank Sinatra and Sammie Davis, Jr. She is considered both a cultural and gay icon who has always remained honest about her personal struggles and challenges.So if you are young enough to not remember some of her fabulous early work, enjoy this slideshow of photos of what Liza Minnelli looked like when she was young to find out.
