Actress Cybill Shepherd

When a model from Memphis named Cybill Shepherd starred in Peter Bogdanovich's now-classic 1971 movie The Last Picture Show, it became readily apparent that she was not just another pretty face - a point of fact she confirmed in Elaine May's The Heartbreak Kid a year later.

Despite several movie roles, she's best known these days for television roles such as detective Maddie Hayes in the eighties series "Moonlighting" (the show that introduced us to Bruce Willis) and as struggling actress Cybill Sheridan in her own nineties sitcom "Cybill." More recently, she has had a recurring role in Showtime's "The L Word."

She's also done TV movies, including two spectacular turns as Martha Stewart. :-D
