Sally Field, an actress, rose to fame in the film industry after beginning her illustrious career of more than 50 years as the boy-obsessed surfer girl in the sitcom Gidget.
For her roles in Norma Rae and Places in the Heart, Field won two Academy Awards. She also won three Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two Golden Satellite Awards, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
Field collaborated with some of Hollywood’s biggest names throughout her career and appeared in movies that are still regarded as classics today.
In 2014, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Field, a mother of three, made the following statement during her acceptance speech at the 2007 Emmy Awards when she won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: “If the mothers ruled the world, there would be no goddamn wars in the first place.”
Throughout her life, Field was married twice. In 1968, she married Steven Craig, her first spouse. Five years later, they divorced, but it wasn’t formalized until 1975. Peter Craig, a novelist and screenwriter, and Eli Craig, an actor and filmmaker best known for helming the cult horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs Evil, are Field’s kids from that marriage.
Field and Burt Reynolds started dating in 1976. They co-starred in four movies together when they were dating: Smokey and the Bandit, Smokey and the Bandit II, The End, and Hooper. Until 1982, they broke up but had a few on-again, off-again periods.
Field has a son named Alan Greisman with her second husband, to whom she was married from 1989 to 1994.
Field, who turns 76 this year, has always been regarded as a strikingly gorgeous woman, but it is clear from looking at pictures of her from her early years that she has changed considerably. But that doesn’t imply she is any less lovely now.
Field unquestionably defies aging.
