Hollywood legend Sherry Lansing gives a nod to Chicago
June 28th, 2017
Sherry Lansing last week talking about a new biography about her. But before that, the former Hollywood producer got together with family and friends at the high-rise home of Christie Hefner.
The two women got to know each other when Hefner was CEO of Playboy Enterprises and Lansing was CEO of Paramount Pictures.
“Leading Lady: Sherry Lansing and the Making of a Hollywood Groundbreaker” was written by Hollywood reporter Stephen Galloway, who also attended the party. In the book, Lansing credits her high school years at University of Chicago Lab Schools for shaping her as a career woman. “She honed her work ethic and social grace, her intellect and drive” Galloway writes.
Lansing also dished about some Hollywood (and Chicago) names. Check out my Taking Names column in the Chicago Sun-Times.
