John Wayne’s Granddaughter Speaks About Having An Acting Icon For A Grandfather

During an interview with Risen Magazine, John Wayne’s granddaughter Jennifer opened up about what it was like growing up with having an acting icon as a grandfather. The actor notably passed away three years prior to her birth.

“You know, a lot of people ask me that,” John Wayne’s granddaughter explained. “And I really don’t know how to answer because that’s just always what I’ve known. But there’s a funny story about that. When I was little, I would always ask the other kids, What channel is your grandpa on?’ because mine was always on AMC and I could just turn it on [and see him]!  So, I’d always ask what channel their grandpas were on because I didn’t know that it was any different.”

John Wayne’s granddaughter also revealed her favorite quotes from his films. “He has so many and I love all of his quotes.  They’re all awesome, but my favorite quote of his is, ‘Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.’ It’s my favorite because it means everything to me when it comes to going for your dreams.  He certainly went for his dreams and look what happened.  I just love that quote.  He also had the quote, ‘Life is tough, but it’s tougher when you’re stupid.’  That’s a pretty funny one!”
