You may know her mother Dyan Cannon from TV shows like Ally McBeal, and her father is a legend in Hollywood. While Jennifer Grant may not embrace the queerspawn title – there is too much confirmation (even Betty White) out there not call her that. Her Dad – Cary Grant – had many wives and women in his life – but it is pretty clear he also had a great-romantic relationship with men too.
Jennifer is Cary Grant and Dyan Cannon’s only daughter, they divorced when she was two. Grant said that she was the best thing he ever made. Partly because her father did not want her to become an actress, she tried other things for several years. After graduating from Stanford University in 1987 with a degree in American Studies, she worked for a law firm, and followed that with a job as a chef.
But after her father’s death, the acting gene kicked in with her role on Beverly Hills 90210 as Celeste Lundy. She has also appeared in several other shows including, Friends, Walker Texas Ranger and CSI. Grant is divorced but recently gave birth to a son, Cary Benjamin in 2008.
