Raquel Welch Is Still Absolutely Stunning At Nearly 80

Raquel Welch is a pop culture icon. If her name doesn't ring a bell, perhaps the One Million Years B.C. film poster featuring her clad in a fur bikini will. That role shot her to superstardom in 1966, but what's happened to her since? To start, she's almost 80 today and still gorgeous.

It's funny that One Million Years B.C. put Welch on the map as a silver screen star considering that it doesn't really showcase her acting chops. She even admitted in her autobiography, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, that the fame that followed was something that surprised her. As she put it,

"It felt like I'd stumbled into a booby trap, pun intended. I am living proof that a picture speaks a thousand words."

Although you might think Welch would resent the movie that turned her into eye candy, she has no regrets. While speaking to Piers Morgan years later on his Life Stories show, she revealed that she liked the attention that blew up from the film, explaining,

"I thought that this was going to be one of those movies that was going to make me a laughing stock, well it did that too, and it's a breakthrough. Every single person seems to know who I am."

The flick was so iconic, in fact, that no matter how much time passes, Welch's impression on Hollywood has remained eternal. In 2013, she landed the number 2 spot on Men's Health's Hottest Women of All Time list, proving that age is just a number and pop culture icons never fade.

Raquel Welch has always been a truly classy lady...self-assured and absolutely unpretentious. I’m years younger, but I remember her film career and how she always maintained her dignity. She’s petite and beautiful and an example for others. And she doesn’t rely on artificiality. True beauty.

Raquel Welch so underrated. She was an ORIGINAL bombshell and it’s a shame not many in this generation know her. She had her own style that a lot of people have tried to emulate even today.

True beauty come from your soul. Something you can not cover with Make Up Some people think a box of crap is great, because of the fine wrapping. Then when they open their present it is a box of crap.

Wow this is a great summary of Raquel's life. I've been watching her since the 1960's and 1,000,000 years BC first came out. She is a star in my mind and heart. It's good she lived well and had fame since then.

Recalling her appearance on a llate-night talk show, she spoke about playing a most unusual role for an actress such as herself: A person with down syndrome. She went on to speak of how she visited a institution incognito to gain knowledge of the general behavior of people with down syndrome, and one patient there walked up to her and said "I know you're trying not be recognized, but I know who you are."

Also, her earliest screen appearance was as a nurse in a one-piece on McHale's Navy. And she was known for having a "Million Dollar Body" ... supposedly from her body being insured for $1M by Lloyds of London.
Seriously You jest?

Sharon Massetti

True she looks good. We could all look that good at that age with her money and a good plastic surgeon. Yes diet and exercise are good but you can’t tell me the cream has kept her face tight. Just my opinion.

I remember her on a Seinfeld show. She would cat fight with Elaine. She would walk without moving her arms. That was 20 years ago.

Rae Cooper
Rae Cooper:
It's sad that in this day and age people don't believe in natural beauty. People can't just see that someone looks good without saying things like oh well if I had that much money I'd look good too. If you don't look good without money you won't look good with it. Taking care of yourself helps you age beautifully. I've been poor my entire life but my great-granny always told me to drink plenty of water, moisturize my skin twice daily and use sunscreen. She said too many black people think they don't need sunscreen but they do. I'm now 40 years old and I have a daughter who's 18 and we look identical to the point where we can use each other's identification. And I'm positive that when I'm eighty I'm still going to look great.

I am a Nutritional Counselor/ Body worker and know natural skin treatments well. She does Yoga daily and eats a much better diet than normal. But it's not negative to comment that at 80, it's obvious she has had laser resurfacing and other facial treatments. And that's okay to look her best. Why not?
