Al Pacino and Beverly d’Angelo
Al Pacino and Beverly d’Angelo split up after spending a few years together and having two (test tube) children, The result was a messy custody battle in which the pair pulled no punches. Mr. Pacino thought he had made her an offer she couldn’t refuse when he offered her 10,000 000 for joint custody of the twins, but he was wrong.
Best known for her portrayal of the bewildered mother in three National Lampoon Vacation films with Chevy Chase. Beverly D’Angelo continues to balance her schedule as an actress with performances showcasing her talents as a vocalist. She performs every Tuesday at the Lucky Seven Club in Hollywood and every Sunday at Johnny Depp’s Viper Room. She explained during a late-1990s interview, “I never had a burning desire to act. I wanted to sing.”
D’Angelo’s first major role came, in 1979, when she successfully auditioned for a role in the Milos Foreman-directed movie version of Hair. This was followed by appearances in Every Which Way But Loose and The Coal Miner’s Daughter, in which she portrayed country singer Patsy Cline.
At the apex of her career, D’Angelo suddenly left acting, married and moved to Italy. She remained in the European country until 1984. Returning to the United States, she appeared in a TV movie remake of A Streetcar Named Desire. She returned to the theatrical stage, in 1994, when she appeared in Sam Shepherd’s play, Simpatico.
