Cybill Shepherd Facts

  1. At the age of 16, she won the “Miss Teenage Memphis” and represented the city at the 1966 Miss Teenage America pageant where she won the congeniality award. At the age of 18, she went on to compete at the 1968 Model of the Year pageant, which opened a way for her to become a fashion star of the 1960s, leaving her with fashion model works through and after her high school years.
  2. Her film Daisy Miller in 1974 turned out to be a box-office failure. In that same year, Shepherd landed a career in singing and debuted her studio album called Cybill Does It…To Cole Porter.
  3. Her role as Maddie Hayes on ABC’S Moonlighting (1985-1989) earned her 2 Golden Globe awards. From the characters she played both on the big and small screens, her portrayal as Maddie Hayes ultimately defined her career as an actress.

Did we miss anyone?


  1. I don’t think Cybill has been described as “slim” in many years. Just watched an episode of SVU made in 2013. So, at age 63 then, she was well over weight, not the 148# currently listed for a 5’8″ woman! I don’t understand why movie stars never have their “stats” updated. Just like, every site ‘claims’: Milburn Stone, as Galen Doc Adams on Gunsmoke was supposedly 5’8″! Which would have made him 2″ taller than Amanda Blake, listed as 5’6″!! He was at least 2″ shorter than she, even when she didn’t wear heels! In my mind, after watching most every episode in last few years, he couldn’t have been more than 5’4″!! But I can understand why a short man would want to keep his ‘official’ height, at what he might have been at age 18!

    The same goes for James Whitmore, always listed at 5’8″!!!
