Back in the 1970s, actor Ali MacGraw was huge. After appearing with Ryan O’Neal in the film Love Story she became a superstar, even appearing on Time magazine’s cover. But behind the scenes, her life was every bit as interesting and dramatic as her hit movies. She’s 80 now, and happy to talk about it.

MacGraw was born in 1939 to parents Richard and Frances. She has mixed feelings about her father and the way she was raised. Although her mother was Jewish, she kept this quiet from her husband. In a 2010 piece for Vanity Fair magazine, she told the interviewer, “I think Daddy was bigoted.”
