Rita Moreno Talks New Memoir On The Couch

She said the book touches on a lot of issues she had yet to open up about.

“I really wanted [the book] to have some sense of elegance, I didn’t want it to be a flashy tell-all,” she said. “It’s my story. It’s the story of an immigrant girl who comes from another country at a time when it was very difficult to be an immigrant girl and to be in show business.”

She also opens up on relationships with high-profile personalities like Marlon Brando and Elvis — but you have to read the book to learn the juicy details.
