Ruta Lee (née le 30 mai 1935) est une actrice et danseuse canado-américaine, connue pour avoir joué l'une des sept épouses de Barbe-Rousse dans la comédie musicale Les Sept Femmes de Barbe-Rousse. Elle joue dans le film de Billy Wilder, Témoin à charge et la comédie musicale de Stanley Donen Drôle de frimousse. Elle est également apparue comme invitée dans un épisode de la série de science-fiction de Rod Serling, La Quatrième Dimension intitulé « A Short Drink From a Certain Fountain ».
In 1976, Lee married Texas restaurant executive Webster B. "Webb" Lowe, Jr. They divide their time between their homes in Hollywood, Palm Springs, Fort Worth and Mexico. She has no children. Lee describes her political views as "conservative" and she appeared at the 1972 Republican National Convention.
In 1964, Lee called then-Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, asking him to pardon her grandmother Ludvise Kamandulis, who had been in an internment camp in Siberia since World War II. The pardon was granted, and Lee's grandmother came to live with her in California in 1964. Kamandulis died two years later. Lee again rescued a relative from the former Soviet Union when she secured custody of her 18-year-old cousin, Maryte Kaseta, from Lithuania in 1987.
Lee has been involved with the charitable organization "The Thalians" for over fifty years. In addition to raising money and providing services for troubled youth and mental health organizations, Lee, who is also the board chairman, has co-produced the annual Ball of the Thalians with Debbie Reynolds throughout those five decades. In 2011, she stepped down after 55 years of involvement with the Thalians, and is now an emeritus member.
