According to Time magazine, she was the most stunning woman ever

Jacqueline Bisset stands out in a multitude of ways, boasting an extraordinary career that spans 58 years with 58 movies to her credit. From my childhood, she captured my parents’ admiration, evolving into a lifelong role model for me. She holds a unique place among actors, evoking the golden era of Hollywood.

Her allure lies in her captivating and timeless presence, a woman who seemed to mature rapidly, eschewing excessive makeup. Throughout her illustrious career, Bisset, renowned for her striking green eyes and prominent cheekbones, portrayed various iconic roles. From the epic love story “Anna Karenina” to the seductive Miss Goodthighs in “Casino Royale” (1967) and the portrayal of Jackie Kennedy Onassis in “America’s Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story” (2003).

Bisset made her acting debut in Roman Polanski’s “Cul-de-Sac” in 1966. The following year, she garnered acclaim with three notable movies, including “The Sweet Ride”, earning her a Golden Globe nomination.

With proficiency in English, French, and Italian, she received France’s highest accolade, the Legion of Honour, in 2010, and the Sedona International Film Festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2023.

Despite collaborations with Hollywood’s leading men, Bisset remains single. Rumors of affairs with Frank Sinatra and Steve McQueen circulated, but Bisset, a clever Englishwoman, cited their differences as insurmountable. She emphasized her independence, having had long-term relationships but never committing to just one person.

In an interview with the Independent, Bisset revealed her preference for complex men, acknowledging that spending time with individuals might reveal undesired behaviors. Despite avoiding toxic relationships, she hasn’t been immune to challenges, adjusting settings to prevent undue demands.

Bisset gained recognition for her Golden Globe-winning portrayal of Baroness Cremone in the BBC series “Dancing on the Edge”. She is Angelina Jolie’s godmother and, at 69, won the best newcomer prize. Her recent work includes the 2020 French thriller “The Oddger” (2020), showcasing her versatility.

Contrary to public perception, Bisset’s character in “The Oddger”, Rose, is distinctly different from the actress. Director Russell Brown attested to her talent, emphasizing the ease with which she transitions between roles.

Bisset gracefully embraces aging, emphasizing the importance of forgiveness in appearing beautiful during her Golden Globes speech. She dismisses the idea of plastic surgery, asserting that it doesn’t make one look younger but rather unique.

As an artist and a genuine, generous woman, Jacqueline Bisset serves as a role model in the entertainment industry. Her intelligence and timeless elegance make her one of my all-time favorite actors.
