Much Love Jac X by Jacki Weaver
Dubbed a National Treasure by Gough Whitlam, a Gay Icon by Les McDonald and a Household Name by the Sydney Morning Herald ( so is Sorbent,’ her unimpressed mother remarked) Jacki Weaver has combined a distinguished acting career with a tumultuous personal life. At 15 Jacki was playing Cinderella in her first professional stage appearance, opposite the then singing heart-throb, Bryan Davies, with whom she was enjoying a very public romance. In 1965 at the age of 18 she met and married her first husband, David Price: He asked me to marry him on our first date, and the sex was so good I said yes. (I believe in sex on a first date, otherwise how do you know if a second date is worth the effort?)’ But Jacki Weaver is a self-confessed bolter and adventuress, with five marriages under her tiny belt. There have been times of great wealth (most notably during her marriage to Derryn Hinch) and times of scraping along. There have been headlines galore, and heartbreak. One of the greatest and most enduring loves of her life, Richard Wherrett, she never married. But she denies promiscuity: Promiscuous implies that I’m not choosy. In fact I’m very choosy. I just happen to have had a lot of choices.’ From the iconic films Picnic at Hanging Rock and Caddie, to on-stage roles in They’re Playing Our Song and Last Cab to Darwin, Jacki’s career has spanned more than forty fabulous years of theatre, film, television and music. She has appeared in some of Australia’s most memorable shows, has worked with everyone who’s anyone in the Australian entertainment industry and has won Logies, Variety Club and AFI awards. This is the extraordinary story of a talented actor who has lived her life to the very fullest fascinating, funny and poignant, this is storytelling at its best.
