It’s rare to see a celebrity today who has not had work done, especially because of the amount of pressure often placed on famous women. It’s hard to be a woman in Hollywood, but – even at 76 – Sally Field has defied most of the “rules” put in place.
We love Sally Field’s work in films like Forrest Gump and Steel Magnolias. Some of our favorite work from her, though, is not on the screen but instead in her personal approach to working against ageism in her career.
Born in 1946 in Pasadena, California, Sally Field rose to fame first in television series such as Gidget and The Flying Nun.
The now 76-year-old star developed into an impressive actress and activist, moving into the film not long after her television career.
She starred in a plethora of iconic films, including Smokey and the Bandit, Norma Rae, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Forrest Gump.
