From the directors she's worked with and admired to the men she's loved; from sipping Cokes with Elvis Presley on Good Friday to hangin' with the Beatles; from her secrets to succeeding in Hollywood without losing her sanity to dealing with the fear and anxiety of being plagued by mysterious physical problems that eluded diagnosis for more than 20 years, the insights in Speedbumps are honest, heartfelt, and often profound.
Since she was eight-years-old, little Terry Ann Garr was a natural performer, staging elaborate productions for the neighborhood in her family's garage. By the age of 17, she was swiveling her hips alongside Elvis and Ann-Margret in Viva Las Vegas.
By the time she was 30, Teri was on her way to becoming known as one of Hollywood's best-loved comic actresses, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance alongside Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie.
In October 2002, Teri announced on national television that she had multiple sclerosis, making headlines across the country. Since then, she has become a leading advocate in raising awareness for MS and the latest treatments for the disease.
Now, in a book that is at once Hollywood hilarious and personally moving, Teri writes about her life, speedbumps and all, with the same characteristic wit and warmth that have won the hearts of fans and Hollywood for more than three decades. Download and start listening now!
