Grier has lived a life full of trials and tribulations, ups and downs. Some of those downs include a stage four cervical cancer diagnosis. She was told she had only 18 months to live. However, with aggressive treatment, she was able to make a full recovery and has been in remission since.

The actress currently lives on a ranch in Colorado, according to Wikipedia. Switching to IMDb, it doesn’t appear she has anything planned for the new year, but that could change quickly! Fifty years in the busines, she seems to be active as ever in the film/TV industry.

Living up to a lofty title
