Early years Moreno was born Rosa Dolores Alverío Marcano[3] on December 11, 1931, in Humacao, Puerto Rico, to Rosa María (née Marcano), a seamstress, and Francisco José "Paco" Alverío, a farmer. She was originally nicknamed "Rosita". Moreno, whose mother was 17 at the time of her birth, was raised in nearby Juncos.[4][5] Rita's mother moved to New York City in 1936, taking her daughter, but not her son, Rita's younger brother, Francisco. Rita later adopted the surname of her first stepfather, Edward Moreno, Rosa Maria's second husband. Career Early career Rita began her first dancing lessons soon after arriving in New York with a Spanish dancer known as "Paco Cansino", who was a paternal uncle of film star Rita Hayworth.[6] When she was 11 years old, she lent her voice to Spanish language versions of American films. She had her first Broadway role—as "Angelina" in Skydrift—by the time she was 13, which caught the attention of Hollywood talent scouts. Film

Rita Moreno, 1963

Moreno acted steadily in films throughout the 1950s, usually in small roles, including in The Toast of New Orleans
The Toast of New Orleans
(1950)[7] and Singin' in the Rain (1952), in which she played the starlet "Zelda Zanders". In March 1954, Moreno was featured on the cover of Life Magazine with the caption "Rita Moreno: An Actress's Catalog of Sex and Innocence".[8][9] Moreno disliked most of her film work during this period, as she felt the roles she was given were very stereotypical. One exception was her supporting role in the film version of The King and I as Tuptim.[10] In 1961, Moreno landed the role of Anita in Robert Wise
Robert Wise
and Jerome Robbins' film adaptation of Leonard Bernstein's and Stephen Sondheim's groundbreaking Broadway musical
Broadway musical
West Side Story, which had been played by Chita Rivera
Chita Rivera
on Broadway. Moreno won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for that role.[11] After winning the Oscar, Moreno thought she would be able to continue to perform less stereotypical film roles, but was disappointed:

“ Ha, ha. I showed them. I didn't make another movie for seven years after winning the Oscar.... Before West Side Story, I was always offered the stereotypical Latina roles. The Conchitas and Lolitas in westerns. I was always barefoot. It was humiliating, embarrassing stuff. But I did it because there was nothing else. After West Side Story, it was pretty much the same thing. A lot of gang stories.[12] ”

Moreno had a major role in Summer and Smoke (1961), released soon after West Side Story. She did appear in one film during her self-imposed exile from Hollywood – Cry of Battle
Cry of Battle
(1963) – although it had been filmed directly before and after she won the Academy Award. She made her return to film in The Night of the Following Day
The Night of the Following Day
(1968), and followed that with Popi (1969), Marlowe (1969), Carnal Knowledge (1971) and The Ritz (1976). Another notable role was in the hit film The Four Seasons (1981). She has continued to work in film since then, including a small voice role in the 2014 film Rio 2, perhaps her most commercially successful film. Television From 1971 to 1977, Moreno was a main cast member on the PBS
PBS
children's series The Electric Company. She screamed the show's opening line, "HEY, YOU GUYS!" Her roles on the show included Millie the Helper, the naughty little girl Pandora, and Otto, a very short-tempered director. Rita Moreno
Rita Moreno
appeared in the variety series The Muppet Show, and she has made numerous guest appearances on television series since the 1970s, including The Love Boat, The Cosby Show, George Lopez, The Golden Girls, and Miami Vice. One notable guest appearance was a three-episode arc on The Rockford Files in 1977 as former call girl Rita Kapcovic. For her portrayal, Moreno won a Primetime Emmy Award
Emmy Award
for Outstanding Guest Actress - Drama Series. As a result, she became the third person (after Richard Rodgers and Helen Hayes) to have won an Oscar (1962), a Grammy (1972), a Tony (1975), and an Emmy (1977). She was a regular on the first three seasons of the sitcom version of Nine to Five (based on the film hit) during the early 1980s.[13] During the mid-1990s, Moreno provided the voice of Carmen Sandiego
Carmen Sandiego
on Fox's animated series Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?[14] In the late 1990s, she gained exposure to a new generation of viewers when she played Sister Pete, a nun trained as a psychologist in the popular HBO
HBO
series Oz, for which she won several ALMA Awards. She made a guest appearance on The Nanny
The Nanny
as Coach Stone, Maggie's tyrannical gym teacher, whom Fran Fine also remembered from her school as Ms. Wickavich.[15] She had a recurring role on Law & Order: Criminal Intent as the dying mother of Detective Robert Goren. She played the family matriarch on the short-lived 2007 TV series Cane, which starred Jimmy Smits and Hector Elizondo. She played the mother of Fran Drescher's character in the 2011–13 TV sitcom Happily Divorced.[16] In 2014, Moreno appeared in the NBC television film Old Soul, alongside Natasha Lyonne, Fred Willard
Fred Willard
and Ellen Burstyn.[17] The film was intended as a pilot for a television series, but it was not picked up. Moreno co-starred, as the matriarch of a Cuban-American family, in the Netflix sitcom One Day at a Time, a remake produced by Norman Lear
Norman Lear
of Lear's own 1975–84 sitcom One Day at a Time. The first season was released in January 2017. Critics overall praised the show, and especially the performances of Moreno and the series' star, Justina Machado.[18] Theater Moreno's Broadway credits include Last of the Red Hot Lovers (1969), the very short-lived musical Gantry (1970) and The Ritz, for which she won the 1975 Tony Award
Tony Award
for Best Featured Actress. She appeared in the female version of The Odd Couple,[10] that ran in Chicago, for which she won the Sarah Siddons Award in 1985.[11] In 2006, she portrayed Amanda Wingfield in Berkeley Repertory Theatre's revival of The Glass Menagerie. In September 2011, Moreno began performing a solo autobiographical show at the Berkeley Rep (theater) in Berkeley, California, Rita Moreno: Life Without Makeup written by Berkeley Rep artistic director Tony Taccone after hours of interviews with Moreno.[8] Other In 1993 she was invited to perform at President Bill Clinton's inauguration and later that month was asked to perform at the White House.[2] She released an eponymous album of nightclub songs in 2000 on the Varèse Sarabande
Varèse Sarabande
label, with liner notes by Michael Feinstein.[19] In 2017, she and multiple others contributed to Lin-Manuel Miranda's single "Almost Like Praying" where proceeds from the song went to the Hispanic Federation's UNIDOS Disaster Relief program to benefit those affected by Hurricane Maria
Hurricane Maria
that devastated the island of Puerto Rico.[20] Personal life Moreno had an eight-year-long affair with actor Marlon Brando.[21] In an interview with Good Day LA, Moreno stated that Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley
was not a good lover. They dated for quite some time, but whenever the opportunity presented itself to take the relationship to another level, Presley backed off.[22] Moreno would later confirm that she only dated Presley to make Brando jealous.[23] Moreno has also had relationships with actors Anthony Quinn
Anthony Quinn
and Dennis Hopper, and theater critic Kenneth Tynan.[23] She claims that Tynan stalked her.[24][25] On June 18, 1965, Moreno married Leonard Gordon, a cardiologist who was also her manager. He died on June 30, 2010.[26] They have one daughter, Fernanda Luisa Fisher,[11] and two grandsons, Justin and Cameron Fisher.[27] Moreno once considered leaving her husband but could not because she did not want to break up the family.[25] Awards Main article: List of awards and nominations received by Rita Moreno
