Sally Struthers Undressed
Sally Ann Struthers (born July 28, 1948) is an American actress
Struthers was born in Portland, Oregon; her maternal grandparents were Norwegian immigrants.
Struthers first achieved fame for her portrayal of Archie Bunker's daughter, Gloria Bunker Stivic, on the popular and groundbreaking 1970s sitcom ''All in the Family''. After a shaky start, word of mouth propelled the program to the top of the Nielsen Ratings heap, giving tens of millions of viewers the chance to see "Gloria" defending her liberal viewpoints about negative stereotypes and inequality.
In ''Five Easy Pieces'' (1970) she had a memorable sex scene with Jack Nicholson.
She has acted in television series, including being a regular performer on ''The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour'' and playing the titular role in the short-lived ''All in the Family'' spin-off ''Gloria'' (1982-1983), on stage, and in made-for-TV movies and feature films. She also has a recurring role as Bill Miller's mother, Louise, on the CBS sitcom ''Still Standing''.
Since 2000, Struthers has regularly appeared on the dramedy ''Gilmore Girls'' as the girls' neighbor Babette Dell.
She has also provided voices for a number of animated series such as ''TaleSpin'' (as Rebecca Cunningham), and ''Dinosaurs'' (as Charlene Sinclair).
By far, Struthers is best known for her work on with the Christian Children's Fund, advocating on behalf of impoverished children in developing countries. The commercials portraying her visiting villages full of starving children have become a pop culture cliche.
Struthers married William Rader on December 18, 1977. Now divorced, they had one child together.
