Judy Lewis, the secret daughter of Clark Cable and actress Loretta Young, passed away this week. She was 76 years old.
Also an actress and later psychotherapist, Judy Lewis did not knew who her real parents are until the age of 31.
Loretta Young had an affair with Clark Gable, who was older than her and he was also married when they were working together on “The Call OF The Wild” movie. After she found out that she is pregnant, she fled to Europe until she gave birth and the left the child in the care of nannies. After 19 months of Judy’s birth, she told journalist Louella Parsons that the girl is not hers, and that she is an adopted child. Even when Young got married later, Judy Lewis remained her “adoptive” daughter.
Later, Judy Lewis managed to get her mother to tell her the truth, a truth she wrote about in a auto biography.
Rest in peace, Judy Lewis!
