Personal Quote:

I'm often compared to Meryl Streep, as in 'Pia Zadora is no Meryl Streep!' See more »


Zadora was the subject of an anecdotal joke in the mid-1980s: Pia was supposedly playing the title role in a Broadway revival of The Diary of Anne Frank, and the reaction to her performance was such that, when Nazi soldiers come knocking at the door of the Frank family's hiding place, the audience starts chanting: "She's in the attic! She's in the attic!". See more »
