This bombshell still looks as charming as always.

Since the time people first laid eyes on actress Bo Derek and her extraordinary beauty, they were captivated by her. This stunning woman, famous for her role in the movie “10” directed by her husband, continues to exude her timeless charm.

Bo discovered her passion for acting at a young age. At 16, she landed her first film role with the help of her mother, who worked for actress Ann-Margeret. It was on the set of the movie Once Upon a Love that Bo met her future husband, John Derek, who was an actor and director.

At the time, John, who was Bo’s 30 years senior, was married to actress Linda Evans, but he decided to divorce her in order to be with then 17-year-old Bo.

Bo, who is now 64 years old, expresses remorse for causing the end of John and Evans’ marriage when she reflects on her teenage relationship.

Bo admitted in a 2016 interview with Interview Magazine that he played a significant role in causing Linda Evans a great deal of pain. Despite this, Linda remained gracious and kind towards him. Interestingly, Bo recently saw her at a charity event where they were both attending a jewellery trunk show. He couldn’t help but feel guilty and inferior in her presence, even after all these years.

Bo and John dated for 2 years, which they mostly spent in Mexico and Europe in order for John to avoid being arrested for dating a minor, before they got married in Las Vegas in 1976.

Bo’s cornrow-style, blonde braids were a unique aspect of her appearance in the past. Surprisingly, this became the defining characteristic that people associate her with. She revealed that it was her husband’s suggestion to have this hairstyle, and she never anticipated its significance in her life.

In the late 1970s, everything was soft and I had blonde hair. John, a talented photographer, believed that this look would suit me well for photography purposes. We decided to give it a try. John suggested taking the pictures to Blake and see if he would approve, as it would be beneficial for the role and make me stand out. This story was shared with Interview Magazine.

Over the years, Bo starred in numerous films helmed by John, such as Tarzan, The Ape Man (1981), Bolero (1984), and Ghosts Can’t Do It (1990), in addition to appearing in TV series like 7th Heaven, Lucky, and Queen of Swords.

John Derek died in 1998 when he was 71 years old. Bo had no intention of marrying again, but she began a romantic relationship with actor John Corbett, who was 60 at the time. “We have a great time together; we always make each other laugh. Even after 15 years, we still hold hands and have barbecues with friends a few times a week,” Bo mentioned a few years ago. In 2020, they made the decision to get married.

Bo has discovered her love for horses, which play a significant role in her life. She authored a book called “Riding Lessons: Everything That Matters in Life I Learned from Horses” to express her passion. Bo’s affection for animals has transformed her into an animal rights activist, particularly advocating against horse slaughter.
