Famous women of the 70s. Then & now
Morgan Fairchild was born in February 3, 1950. She became one of the most glamorous actresses in the late 1970s and continued as probably the most glamorous woman in US Television throughout the 1980s. She will always be remembered for her role in Dallas -a primetime soap opera- in Flamingo Road, a role that earned her a nomination for Best Actress in the Golden Globe Awards and in Falcon Crest.
She was kidnapped twice in the 1970s.
Where’s Morgan now?
Morgan turned 68 this year and you wouldn’t be able to tell her age by looking at her photos. She’s a Democrat and pretty active on Twitter, using her influence to call attention to issues like healthcare and human rights.
Goldie Hawn is one of the very few actresses that have managed to stay gorgeous and current throughout decades and if we were to talk about her heyday we would have to mention at least three decades because she was incredibly popular from the 1970s till the 1990s.
Where is Goldie now?
Goldie has not become a Buddhist. She remains Jewish, but she’s gotten into meditation quite seriously. She supports the LGBT community. Last year (2017) she received her star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame alongside her husband Kurt Russell who spoke about the wonderful life he’s enjoyed thanks to her and her daughter Kate Hudson. Her speech moved Goldie to tears.
Jane Fonda will go down in history as one of the most beautiful women of all time. Her film career started in the 1960s and she made countless films, several of which earned her 7 nominations and 2 Best Actress Oscar Academy Awards. She retired in the 1990s after her marriage with billionaire Ted Turner.
Where’s Jane Fonda now?
After divorcing Ted Turner Jane made a comeback in 2005 and has since been in over six films. She also co-founded along with Gloria Steinem and Robin Morgan the Women’s Media Center, an organization that aims to promote the voice of women in the media. Currently Jane stars in Grace and Frankie, a Netflix original series that premiered in 2015.
Jacqueline Bisset’s first major role was in 1969 in the sensual comedy “The first time”, which started a remarkable career that span over several decades.
Where’s Jacqueline now?
Jacqueline Bisset never married and she never experienced a shortage of suitors. She decided to live her life without becoming anyone’s wife. Jacqueline was however involved with men romantically and she had at least 2 long term relationships that could be considered almost like marriages but they weren’t. She’s now 73 but she wears her age rather well. Still fetching and sensual. Jacqueline is co-starring an erotic French thriller called “Double Lover” and it is a testament of women’s endurance that this gorgeous lady was co-star with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Steve McQueen.
Kate Jackson will always be remembered for her role as Sabrina Duncan, in the 1970s action series “Charlie’s Angels” that is better known nowadays by the films it inspired decades afterwards.
Where’s Kate now?
Kate has been writing her memoirs for quite a while now. The book will be entitled “The Smart One” and it will be released December 30, 2020.
Katharine’s career has not been one of the most prolific. Compared with other 1970s stars in this list she hasn’t made too many films. But the films she starred are all basically masterpieces.
“The Graduate” earned her a nomination for Best Supporting Actress; “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” gave her a BAFTA for Best Actress and “Voyage of the Damned” gave her a Golden Globe.
What’s Katharine Ross up to these days?
Last year she appeared on a film with her husband Sam Elliott, co-starring “The Hero.” She’s had one of the most enduring marriages of Holywood (34 years) and she’s starring in another film… “Attachments” that is yet to be released.
Sissi was in the movie Badlands (1973) but her big break came in the horror film Carrie (1976) and her performance earned her an Oscar nomination. She went on to win an Oscar as Best Actress in 1980 for her role in the film “Coal Miner’s Daughter” Afterwards she received several Oscar nominations (She has received a total of six in her career) and a total of 3 Golden Globe Awards.
What’s been Sissy up to?
Sissy keeps pretty much to herself. She is one of a very select group of celebrities who have managed their lives so well, that somehow they manage to stay pretty much out of the public eye. She has continued active over the years and her most recent cast in a recurring role will be in “Homecoming” a new Amazon series that will will air.
Julie Andrews is a living legend. Her most iconic movies are of course “The Sound of Music” and “Mary Poppins.” She aged so gracefully that she remains incredibly beautiful at her age and unlike other stars of her generation her spark remains as bright as when she was young.
What is Julie Andrews doing these days?
Julie Andrews co-created and starred in “Julie’s Greenroom” an educational television show released on Netflix in March 2017.
Meryl Streep has been so successful over the years, that we’ve never grown tired of her. I certainly do not remember a time after the 70s when she wasn’t one of the best actresses being casted for something. She almost didn’t make it to this list, not because she wasn’t a star in the 70s but because even though her career took off in the 70s she remained as current in the 80s, 90s and every single decade since. Needless to say this is not solely due to talent -which she has plenty- but a rather fortunate choice of roles, versatility and perhaps even luck. Her first Academy nomination came for her role in “The Deer Hunter” in 1978. A year later she won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress on “Kramer vs. Kramer” after that, her awards and honors are just too many to mention. She’s considered one of the best actresses of all time.
What has been Meryl Streep up to lately?
Winning another Oscar perhaps? She’s been nominated for the role she played in her most recent film “The Pentagon Files” This is her 21th nomination. It appears she is not the favorite to win the award but it’s fair to say she stands a chance.
