Ali MacGraw (1939)

Ali MacGraw started working in 1960 at Harper’s Bazaar magazine as an assistant to Diana Vreeland before working as a model and stylist for Vogue. After appearing in several television commercials, she gained recognition as the archetypal ‘Jewish American princess’ in Goodbye, Colombus, in 1969. It is the popular mellow, Love Story, in 1970 that raised her to international stardom. In 1972, she met Steve McQueen on the set of The Getaway, she then married the actor in 1973 before divorcing in 1978. During their passionate and overwhelming union, the actress took break form acting and re-appeared on screens in Convoy, in 1978 and Just Tell Me What You Want, in 1980. From the 1980s, she mostly obtained secondary television roles such as a part in soap opera, Dynasty in 1984. The style icon and dream girl of a whole generation, Ali MacGraw moved away from Hollywood as quickly as she had entered its doors. A feminist activist, an animal rights advocate and an influential yoga devotee, the American actress now inspires audiences with her kindness and elegant natural beauty. She, during the journey, had proven she was no screen goddess but had, like any woman, weaknesses, struggling with alcohol and drug addictions and falling for the bad guy...
