Grace Kelly FINAL interview weeks before her death – ‘I didn’t like being a movie star’

Grace Kelly died 38 years ago on September 14, 1982, having succumbed to injuries sustained in a car crash the previous day. The 1950s Hollywood movie star and Oscar winner was best known for her Hitchcock thrillers like Rear Window and other films such as High Society and High Noon. But then in 1956 she retired from acting at 26 to marry Rainier III, Prince of Monaco and became Princess of Monaco herself.

After 25 years of marriage, in the final year of her life, Grace Kelly gave her last interview on June 22, 1982.

JFK and LBJ’s former White House Press Secretary Pierre Salinger spoke with her for ABC’s 20/20.

And while talking of her acting career Kelly admitted that while she loved the craft, she did not enjoy being a Hollywood movie star.

The 52-year-old said: “When I was acting, of course I loved acting.”
