READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
George Lopez is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and the comedian gets serious when he talks about his rough childhood – and his grandmother. "At least she was there," Lopez told Piers Morgan. "When it came time for her funeral, I cremated her and kept a little bit with me...I keep her in my dressing room."
Lopez got emotional as he described the promise he made to his grandmother before his grandfather died.
"I made her a promise in 1988 that I would take care of her after her husband died, and I did until she passed away," said Lopez. "I wish I would have told her there was nobody that loved her more, or anybody that would have protected her more than me."
Watch the full interview tonight at 9pmET/PT – including Lopez's take on Jay Leno, his recent divorce and more.
