Why Liza Minnelli Is Concerned About Renée Zellweger’s Judy Garland Biopic (Exclusive)

Liza Minnelli will forever protect mother Judy Garland’s legacy.

ET exclusively caught up with the 73-year-old actress ahead of the opening of the supper club Feinstein’s at Vitello’s in Studio City, California, where she shared her concerns about the upcoming biopic on her legendary mom.

Simply titled Judy, the new Rupert Goold-directed film stars Renée Zellweger as Garland and will be released on Sept. 27. ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke with Minnelli about the project, who claims she hasn’t seen any of the trailers.

“I wanted to create a space that was just for Liza. So we have Liza’s room now,” Feinstein shared. “We met at a nightclub, [so] it’s fitting. l was playing a Christmas party and Liza came by.
