Raquel Welch is a timeless beauty, but it is not a bad idea to remind ourselves about the 81-year-old superstar once in a while.
The actress was born in 1940, and she didn't always dream of stardom. Becoming a sex symbol and world-renowned actor was a consolation prize for this former ballerina.
Young Raquel dreamed of ballet until when she was 17, her ballet instructor told her that she did not have the body for it.
And in 1966, when she appeared in a fur bikini in her breakout film One Million Years B.C., the star was born.
Her sex appeal from the 60s is now a thing of legend. Men's Health named her the second hottest woman of all time in their 2014 issue.
Though mom-of-two managed to win a Golden Globe and scored over 40 movie roles, even more, T.V. roles, and played in the theater, she remains known for her looks.
Raquel Welch was married four times. She wrote a book about her life Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, in 2010.
The beauty, who will turn 82 in September, remains not only one of the prettiest, sexiest but also one of the most admired women in the world.
It helps that she is among the least problematic celebrities.
