This actress doesn’t really need much of an introduction, given her decades-long career and the fact that she’s still very active at present. Although Sally Field is very successful in her career, it cannot conceal the trauma that Field suffered during her childhood. After her parents divorced, Field lived with his mother. After his mother got married again, Field’s nightmarish life began. She was sexually abused by her stepfather.

Sally’s debut performance, also considered her breakout role, was in Gidget during the ‘60s. It wasn’t until her role in Norma Rae did she receive an Oscar nod, however, one that is truly well-deserved. She has remained single since the ‘90s, after a string of divorces, and devotes her time instead to LGBT and women’s organizations. A truly independent woman, her investments in these advocacies simply show that she is beautiful both on the inside and the outside.
