She’s still got it going on at age 74! Throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, Loni Anderson was one of the most beautiful women on television. Fast forward all these years later and some people are wondering what she looks like today. Spoiler alert: she’s still stunning.
As Burt Reynolds‘ ex-wife, Loni was most known for her role playing Jennifer Marlowe in WKRP in Cincinnati from 1978 until 1982. But since her acting career has slowed down, many fans are wondering what she is up to now. Over the past 11 years, Loni has had credits in TV series including So Notorious, My Sister Is So Gay, and Baby Daddy.
Although she’s not appearing on the small screen as much anymore, Loni is still keeping up with a Hollywood lifestyle by hitting the red carpet at a lot of different galas, premieres and charity events. In July 2017, the actress stepped out in Santa Monica, California looking younger than ever in a black denim jacket, jeans and her blonde locks flowing. Less than two years later, the beauty was all smiles while at the 26th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala in Los Angeles.
In a previous exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Loni opened up about embracing her age. “I’m not saying traditional is boring, but I’m a grandma and the women around me are, too,” she explained. “We’re different from that stereotype, so it’s time to change the face of what grandmas look like!”
Loni — who married three different times before finding love with her now-husband, Bob Flick — also spends time with daughter Deidra Hoffman, whom she welcomed with her first husband, Bruce Hasselberg. The Nurses actress opened up about her daughter’s MS battle in a previous interview with Closer. “You have to go forward and make the best you can of it,” she said of her girl’s diagnosis.
While Loni has been married to her current husband since 2008, she also still recalls her up and down relationship with the late Smokey and the Bandit star — who she had a son named Quintin with. “I used to say to him, ‘Why did you say that?'” Loni exclusively told Closer Weekly of the fallout the former pair had once they split. “People don’t realize that [even in the worst times] we always kept in contact.”
Things eventually changed though, as the duo became close again. “We were friends first and friends last,” Loni revealed at the Los Angeles opening of Feinstein’s at Vitello’s supper club. “It’s time to move on.” So great!
Our hope is Loni will soon return to the small screen with more iconic TV gigs!
