Liza Minnelli is made an officer in France’s Legion of Honour

HollywoodNews.com: When you already have an Oscar, a special Grammy and several Emmys and Tonys, what other honors are there for an iconic entertainer like Liza Minnelli?

How about being made an officer in France’s prestigious Legion of Honour!

On Monday, a visibly moved Liza received the red-ribboned medal from the French Culture Minister, Frederic Mitterrand, at a ceremony in Paris.

“We love you because you make our lives better,” Mitterrand told the great star.”A glance in your eyes is enough to make one imagine Broadway in golden letters sparkling in your eyes, your beautiful eyes.”

Liza, the star of such films as Cabaret, The Sterile Cuckoo and New York, New York, said: “What I am really, really so honoured about, is to be a part of France, to be a part of the city and the country of my dreams. Thank you for watching me, thank you for caring about me.”

Hollywood royalty Liza is the daughter of Judy Garland and of Vincente Minnelli was directed the classic film An American in Paris.
