Joan Rivers -- who herself admits that she went from the poster girl of plastic surgery to "the joke of it" -- lets audiences find out what's beneath her surface in her new documentary, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (out in theaters on June 11). Above, see the exclusive reveal of the trailer.
Cameras followed the 76-year-old comedian for one year, chronicling her ups and downs, including one of her biggest fears -- looking at a blank calendar with no tour dates. As Rivers points out, she has "no Vegas, no giant club dates. Kathy Griffin has taken all of those." The plastic surgery veteran -- whose controversial stint on The Celebrity Apprentice is also featured -- gets emotional in the documentary as she talks about growing older and the effects it's had on her, while her daughter, Melissa Rivers, explains that "all standups are innately insecure."
Directed by Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg, the movie (which was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival in January) is an unvarnished glimpse at the funny lady. ''I've had Biography do my bio,'' the comedian told Entertainment Weekly, ''but that's all about getting people to say you're wonderful, so that doesn't count.''
