Sally Field, 76, Fought Ageism throughout Her Career in Hollywood and Never Got Plastic Surgery

Veteran Hollywood actress Sally Margaret Field is well-known for her vast on-screen and stage work.

Field, 76, has received numerous honors for her exceptional performance during her career. These include two Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, three Primetime Emmys, two British Academy Film Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2014, and numerous other honors.

Norma Rae, Sybil, The Amazing Spiderman, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Flying Nun, Forest Gump, Eye for an Eye, Spoiler Alert, and 80 for Brady are just a few of her well-known films.

Recently Sally received the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Offstage, I felt shy and careful and hidden. But onstage, I never knew what I would say or do. I would surprise myself. I wasn’t looking for the applause, or attention, even though that’s nice,” she said during her award acceptance speech.

“Acting, to me, has always been about finding those few, precious moments when I feel totally, utterly, sometimes dangerously alive. The task has always been to find a way to get to that.” 

She added, “They opened and revealed parts of myself I would not have known otherwise. I’ve worked my whole life. In all of these almost 60 years, there is not a day that I don’t feel quietly thrilled to call myself an actor,” 

The Forest Gump alum is famous for her naturally beautiful looks in the industry and for never getting Botox, face lifts, and other beauty enhancement treatments.

In 2016, Sally played the character of Dorris Miller – an ageing eccentric woman in Hello, My Name is Dorris.

Speaking about her role with NPR, Field said that she had no issue in playing the role because she is not insecure about her real age and growing old in general.

“I’m an old woman, 70 is old, and that’s okay. I’ve gathered strength behind my years, I owned them, I’ve earned them, I’ve deserved them, I have a right to have them. And I don’t like my neck, I don’t like a lot of things but it’s okay,” she told the outlet.

Previously, she spoke to Good Housekeeping for another interview and talked about ageing naturally and getting comfortable in her natural skin without feeling the need to get plastic surgeries done.

“I see myself on TV and I say, ‘Oh, I wish that weren’t happening to my neck. And your face is falling down, and your eyes are so puffy.’ But then I see some of the women (who have had plastic surgery) who I thought when they were younger were so beautiful. Now I think, Oh, dear, don’t do that! And it seems to be terribly disrespectful to who they are now.”
