WHAT IS KATY PERRY’S LINK TO JOAN CRAWFORD?
It really IS a small world. Katy Perry has a close “nine degrees of separation” connection to Joan Crawford. Katy’s evangelist mother’s aunt and uncle were successful Hollywood director Frank Perry and his screenwriter wife Eleanor Perry. Frank Perry directed the classic movie “Mommie Dearest” – the Joan Crawford story starring Faye Dunaway. Frank Perry died years before Katy’s career started to rise so he never was able to pull any strings for her.
