Winifred Jacqueline Fraser Bisset LdH, professionally known as Jacqueline Bisset, is a 78-year-old British actress who began her career in the entertainment industry as a model and actress in the 1960s
Bisset, who began her acting debut in 1965, first rose to prominence in 1968 when she appeared in a crime/drama film, The Detective. The cast list included Frank Sinatra, Lee Remick, Jack Klugman, Tony Musante, and Horace McMahon.
Her notable projects include The Deep, Bullitt, Class, Day For Night, The Man From Acapulco, Rich and Famous, Secrets, Murder On The Orient Express, The Sunday Woman, The Sweet Ride, and Anna Karenina.
Jacqueline received several accolades throughout her career for her outstanding acting skills, including a Gloden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her BBC miniseries, Dancing On the Edge.
Bisset was also honored with France’s highest state honor, the Legion of Honor, in 2010 due to her multilingual French, Italian, and English skills.
The timeless beauty was granted a Life Time Achievement Award in 2023 by the Sedona International Film Festival.
“Once hailed by Newsweek as ‘the most beautiful film actress of all time’, it was scenes of her swimming underwater in a t-shirt in the 1977 movie The Deep with Nick Nolte that catapulted Bisset to international stardom,” Daily Mail wrote.
Even today, Jacqueline is lauded by her fans and costars as a natural beauty who never went under the knife to get any plastic surgeries done on her face or any other beauty enhancement treatments, which are pretty common among actresses nowadays.
“I believe, if you want to look good, you’ve got to forgive everybody. It’s the best beauty treatment,” she said during her Golden Globe award acceptance speech.
Despite being approached by several men in Hollywood, Jacqueline Bisset has never been married because, according to her, she wouldn’t cope with anyone’s bad habits in a long-term relationship.
“I’ve been in seven-year relationships three times and one 14-year relationship,” she told The Independent in 2014.
“It’s funny how it’s always seven. Sometimes you get too much information when you spend time with people. You start to see things – bad habits.”
“You start to discover them, and then you have to marry bad habits, and I’m not sure I can cope with them. I don’t ever have bad relationships.”
