Sally Field, 76, fought ageism in Hollywood throughout her career and never got plastic surgery

Nowadays, it’s uncommon to see a celebrity without work on their resume, especially for prominent women who frequently face a great deal of pressure. Being a woman in Hollywood is challenging, yet even at 76, Sally Field has broken most of the “rules” that have been set.

In movies like Forrest Gump and Steel Magnolias, Sally Field excels. Her personal strategy for combating ageism in her career, rather than her performance onscreen, is some of our favorite work from her.

Sally Field, who was born in Pasadena, California, in 1946, first became well-known through television shows like Gidget and The Flying Nun.

The now-76-year-old actress and activist honed her acting skills and transitioned into the film industry shortly after beginning her television career.

In addition to Smokey and the Bandit, Norma Rae, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Forrest Gump, she starred in a number of other well-known movies.

In February 2023, the actress was presented with the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award. She graciously accepted the honor and spoke about her distinguished and accomplished career.

Two Academy Awards, two BAFTA Film Award nominations, three Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two SAG Awards, including her most recent Life Achievement Award, and a Tony nomination were among the honors Field had previously received in her career.

Field, a passionate activist, is frequently referred to as ageless and gifted. Her speech for the SAG Achievement Award was modest and helpful to outline her nuanced acting background.

“Offstage I felt shy and careful and hidden. But onstage I never knew what I would say or do. I would surprise myself. I wasn’t looking for the applause, or attention, even though that’s nice,” she confessed. “Acting, to me, has always been about finding those few, precious moments when I feel totally, utterly, sometimes dangerously alive. The task has always been to find a way to get to that.”

Field looked flawlessly lovely and graceful while wearing a stunning black dress and her naturally gray hair.

“They opened and revealed parts of myself I would not have known otherwise. I’ve worked my whole life. In all of these almost 60 years, there is not a day that I don’t feel quietly thrilled to call myself an actor,” she explained.

In 2016, Field, who was playing the aging eccentric woman Doris Miller, spoke with NPR about the role:
