Olympia got the role in Moonstruck when she was 57 years old. She once said, “‘Moonstruck’ was the first one. It’s like somebody said, ‘Look, she waited all these years. Let’s give her something good.’ I mean it was incredible and then that changed my whole life. My daughter was going to college on credit cards when I did that movie you know and after that, we were able to send our children to college with no problems.”
