Mary Tyler Moore made an appearance at the National Press Club yesterday to discuss her battle with juvenile diabetes (Type 1). The longtime spokeswoman for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was able to turn the room on with more than just her smile…

“So, who here thinks I look like Nancy Pelosi?” asked actress Mary Tyler Moore, looking like a taller, leaner version of the speaker of the House as she waded through scores of admiring fans at the VIP reception before a luncheon at the National Press Club.

From Yeas and Nays
Moore said she was worried that people watching her act would wonder if she had some “weird” disease. So then what made her finally decide to come out, one audience member asked?

“I started being attracted to other women,” she joked, before adding it was really due to the foundation.
