Having memorably played a tough but warm-hearted Harvard Law professor in Legally Blonde and sassy mom Evelyn Harper on Two and a Half Men, veteran actress Holland Taylor is now up for a Tony Award for Broadway's Ann, her one-woman show in which she plays the late, feisty Texas Gov. Ann Richards.
Doubly remarkable is not only that Taylor stars in the show, but she wrote it herself. (The Tonys air live on CBS Sunday at 8 p.m.)
And while the Emmy winner has enjoyed career success, life has not been entirely glamorous for the 70-year-old, who opens up about her own personal challenges – including a long struggle with depression – in this weekend's Parade.
