Profile Bio Text
Peggy Hopkins Joyce was an American actress and celebrity, famed as much for her several marriages to wealthy men, colorful divorces, scandalous affairs, and generally lavish lifestyle as for her work on stage or screen.
Born Marguerite Upton in Berkley, Virginia, she was known as "Peggy", a traditional nickname for Margaret or Marguerite. "Hopkins" and "Joyce" were the surnames of her second and third husbands, respectively (of six overall).
She debuted on the Broadway stage in 1917 in the Ziegfeld Follies. In 1923 she caused a sensation in the annual Earl Carroll`s Vanities. In 1933, she played herself in the film, International House, which contained some good-natured joshing about her love life.
Her life had its tragedies. Guillermo Errázuriz, brother of the equally scandalous Blanca Errázuriz, killed himself in Paris in 1922, despondent over her.
She owned the Portuguese Diamond, one of the most expensive in the world, that she sold to Harry Winston and which is now on display at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
Peggy Hopkins Joyce died in New York City in 1957, aged 64.
