Candice Bergen then and now: See the blonde bombshell through the years

Candice Bergen is lovely as ever at 72 years old!

As just about everyone knows, Candice became a household name in the 1960s, and she certainly hasn't abandoned the spotlight in recent years. But it was more than 50 years ago that the Beverly Hills-born Candice got her "big break" in the Oscar-nominated "The Sand Pebbles," which led to dozens of roles on film and TV -- eventually leading her to a 10-year run "Murphy Brown."

We're so used to seeing Candice in her late adulthood that we nearly forgot what she looked like back in the 1960s and '70s -- what a beauty.

But while other actresses of her generation retired years ago, that's just not in the cards for Candice. The last decade has seen Candice continuing to dominate on screen, from 84 episodes of "Boston Legal" to playing Reese Witherspoon's mom in the 2017 hit "Home Again."

In 2018, she starred as one of the four leading ladies in "Book Club" alongside good company: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Mary Steenburgen round out the cast. Wouldn't mind hanging out with these ladies for a few hours.
