Pam Grier Biography

Pam was one of four children born to Air Force mechanic Clarence Grier and Gwendolyn Samuels, a nurse. One sister died from cancer in 1990 and the son of that sister committed suicide because of his mother's illness. Pam herself was diagnosed with cancer in 1988 and given 18 months to live which has had an effect on how she has chosen to live. She has never been wed, although she has been romantically linked to Richard Pryor and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the past.


Pam Grier Trivia

Auditioned for a part in Pulp Fiction (1994), and at the time, right after Rosanna Arquette took the nod, was considered for the part of Bonnie (Jimmie's wife). She didn't land either role, until Jackie Brown (1997) came along. Quentin Tarantino renamed the character of Jackie Burke from "Rum Punch" to "Jackie Brown" as homage to Foxy Brown (1974).

While a student at UCLA, she sang back-up for singer-composer Bobby Womack. Interestingly, Womack's composition and 1972 recording of the song "Across 110th Street" was the theme song of the film Jackie Brown (1997), which marked a major comeback for Grier in the starring and title role. She was nominated for a Golden Globe and an NAACP Image Award for her performance.

Was the first Black woman to appear on the cover of MS. Magazine (August 1975 issue).

Named as one of Ebony Magazine's "100 Most Fascinating Women of the 20th Century".

Awarded a "Career Achievement Award" at the 34th Annual Chicago International Film Festival. [17 October 1998]

Dated comedian Richard Pryor.

Her early films such as Women in Cages (1971) and The Big Doll House (1971) were filmed in the Philippines. While there she contracted a deadly tropical disease and nearly died. She lost her hair and was temporarily blind for almost a month. It took nearly a year for her to recover.

Cousin of actor Roosevelt Grier.

Measurements: 38-22-36 (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

Graduated from East High School, Denver, Colorado.

When she met her boyfriend they found out they both grew up in Denver, Colorado. Upon further conversation she found out that he grew up in her house, after her family moved out.
