Alfredo James "Al" Pacino (born April 25, 1940) is an Academy Award, Emmy Award and Tony Award-winning American stage and film actor.

Early life

Pacino was born on April 25, 1940 in New York City's Manhattan borough to Italian-American parents Salvatore Pacino and Rose Gerard (the daughter of an Italian-born father and a New York-born mother of Italian descent). His parents divorced when Pacino was two years old. After the divorce, Al and his mother moved to The Bronx, New York to live with his grandparents, who originated from Sicily.[3] His father Salvatore moved to Covina, California, working as an insurance salesman and owner of his own restaurant called Pacino's Lounge.

Pacino attended Manhattan's School of Performing Arts.

Tough times forced the closure of Pacino's in the early 1990s, and is now called Citrus Grill. Salvatore Pacino died on January 1, 2005 at the age of 82.
