What do you think of Cybill Shepherd's looks?

When did she look her absolute best and when did she first start to lose her looks?

Let's discuss.

You're obsessed with looks OP/gurl.

What do you consider YOURSELF out of 10?

She was beautiful in The Last Picture Show. She still was attractive when she was in the show Moonlighting but not as beautiful as in her youth. By the time she got her own sitcom her looks were going downhill.

Had some good angles in the early 1970s, but honestly my cat is more attractive

Cybill started to lose her looks when her gorgeous co-star won her Emmy in 1995.

Did she ever have plastic surgery?

She's one of those women like Brooke Shields who seem like they peak as young women, but keep 'thickening' as they age- and become almost mannish.

I know most won’t agree but I think she was the most beautiful in the early (pre preganancy) Moonlighting years. The 80s (with a little bit of 40s thrown in) fashions (shoulder pads) , hairstyles (big), and makeup suited her look and build much more than anything from the 70s and I think is when she really peaked as a beauty and everything else.

And people always talk about choosing your dads over your ass on here but she would have aged much better if she had kept some weight off (and if she just had a smaller frame in general - which of course is beyond her control).

Supposedly such a bitch, though. I know someone (now deceased) who managed an actor of a certain (flop) movie she was in and she was just a total arrogant bitch. And not in a im just standing up for myself kind of way. Oh well.

Very boring looking. Objectively very pretty but lacked sexuality.

by Anonymousreply 8November 22, 2022 5:59 PM

In fairness to Cybill she had twins in her late 30s, skin cancer and surgery to repair a major bowel rupture . All of that's gonna take its toll but yeah she looked good up to the end of her sitcom. She actually looks better now again than she did 10 years ago when she looked pretty rough.

Is she homophobic?

What are her views on homosexuality?

R10 she's always been vocal about gay rights, even back in the 80s/90s when it was not so fashionable. Here she is winning a GLAAD ally award

Lips too big

by Anonymousreply 14November 23, 2022 6:13 PM

Looked her best when she was doing beauty pageants.

How old was she then?

by Anonymousreply 15November 24, 2022 3:41 AM

Best - Season 1 of Moonlighting

Started losing her looks -Season 5 of Moonlighting

R14 If her lips were any thinner they'd be non existent. Is Savannah Guthrie your beauty idol?

by Anonymousreply 17November 24, 2022 4:46 AM

Pretty and healthy looking woman at her peak but not beautiful. I tend to confuse her with Candice Bergen.

by Anonymousreply 18November 24, 2022 4:48 AM

Her looks peaked in the 1970's such as this photo of her in 1973.

By the time Moonlighting went on the air in 1985 she was still quite attractive but no longer stunning as she had been up until the late 1970's.

She was a bit too Maureen McCormick to me during her 70s modeling days. I thought she was at her most beautiful when she relaunched her career in the mid 80s and in her early Moonlighting days.

I think she still had it in Moonlighting. I thought she was so glamorous and looked great in all those pastel colors she would wear. She was like a modern tv version of Grace Kelly.

I agree, r21 - and she definitely had a sexiness to her she didn’t possess in her Last Picture Show days.

For me, her looks started to fade in that last season of Moonlighting. Her face looked pallid and washed out, and even the soft focus lens they used for Maddie for most of the show wasn’t helping this time. And it didn’t help that she had one of the most unflattering hairstyles ever.

I agree R7, R20, R21, and R22. Early Moonlighting years were some of Cybill's best for her looks. There are some scenes in the first season of Moonlighting where she's absolutely stunning and had a screen queen quality like Grace Kelly as R21 points out. Too bad she was/is such a bitch.

by Anonymousreply 23November 24, 2022 5:33 PM

She is such a nightmare to work with she's been parodied onscreen at least twice--once in "Irreconcilable Differences" as the no-talent actress played by Sharon Stone, and once as a nightmare boss for Lili Taylor's chef on Six Feet Under played by Catherine O'Hara.

by Anonymousreply 24November 24, 2022 5:38 PM

I don't remember who that is

by Anonymousreply 25November 24, 2022 5:52 PM

She has also been parodied by Katey Segal on an episode of CSI and by Annie Potts in a stage play written by an ex-Cybill writer. And Cybill had worked with both Katey and Annie previously so interesting that each agreed to play a version of her for laughs.

Annette Bening in American Beauty was based on her too.

She’s a bitch but she’s one fascinating bitch.

Wow, Cybill is so boring on screen she must save her truly remarkable cuntitude for backstage!

A gay guy ran her production company--he was a class behind me in high school.

by Anonymousreply 28November 24, 2022 6:08 PM

R28, did Cybill and that gay guy get along?

by Anonymousreply 29November 24, 2022 6:56 PM

Please, more true life stories of Cybill from those that have worked with her or even once or twice removed.

I love hearing about bitchy women other than Faye.

You’re too kind, Christine/r4. Her good looks started to fade about 7-8 years before that.

by Anonymousreply 31November 24, 2022 7:38 PM

She looked stunning in Taxi Driver. I agree she was very attractive in Moonlighting but not at her peak. Apparently her bitchiness peaked during Cybill, though.

I heard she was a bitch, but I didn't know so many negative characters were based on her.

by Anonymousreply 34November 24, 2022 8:57 PM

She’s a better actress than people give her credit for. She was wonderful in the early years of Moonlighting before they ruined the Maddie Hayes character. But Bruce and her had incredible chemistry that neither has had with anyone else before or since.

I never got the Cybill Shepherd "thing." She always seemed shallow and snotty to me (and not just because of "Picture Show").

by Anonymousreply 36November 24, 2022 10:12 PM

[quote] She’s a better actress than people give her credit for.

She could definitely be good but I wonder who wouldn’t be in The Last Picture Show and Moonlighting they were both handled by people who seemed to know what they wanted. But she did seem to have an affinity with screwball which put her in good footing with her Moonlighting character. She already tried screwball with Bogdanovich - even Daisy Miller had elements of a fast-talking screwball type character.
