Vincent Price was an actor best known for his roles in horror films. Later in his life, he also hosted BBC Radio's horror and mystery series, The Price of Fear.
Price had many talents beyond his life as a performer. He studied art history and established an art museum with his wife. He was also a gifted chef who published multiple cookbooks and had a cooking show.
His iconic eyebrows, spooky voice, and signature mustache have come to define the horror genre.
He was in countless films and even contributed a monologue to Michael Jackson's Thriller music video.
Vincent Price was married three times to 3 different women and had two children, a son and a daughter. He was a vocal supporter of LGBTI causes and was an honorary board member of PFLAG, often critiquing anti-gay-rights organizations.
In an interview with Boom Magazine, his daughter, Victoria Price, said,
I am as close to certain as I can be that my dad had physically intimate relationships with men. I know for 100 percent fact that my dad was completely loving and supportive of LGBTI people.
When Victoria came out to her father, she claims Price said,
You know, I know just how you feel because I have had these deep, loving relationships with men in my life and all my wives were jealous.
His daughter also claims that her father's third wife, Coral Browne was a bisexual woman. While many believed their relationship to be a lie, his daughter said they were a couple in every sense while being open-minded and independent as well. To celebrate his 100th birthday, she held a 2-hour plus multimedia lecture titled The Vincent Price Legacy: Reflections From a Daughter at the Missouri History Museum where she spoke about her memories with him and sharing intimate photos and anecdotes.
