When you think talent, you think Bette Midler.
A hugely popular celebrity, the singer-songwriter, actress, comedian, and producer first made major waves in music and film in the ’70s and ’80s. She is still beloved to this day!
And for good reason — Bette is incredibly talented. Not only is she a spectacular musical artist, releasing 14 albums since 1970, she’s also starred in Broadway shows and a variety of movies and television shows.
Bette was born in 1945 and rose to prominence in 1970. Nearly a decade later, in 1979, she made her motion picture debut in the movie The Rose.
After that first film, for which she won a Golden Globe, she continued starring in hit movies, including Beaches, The First Wives Club, and Gypsy.
Over the course of her career, Bette has won four Golden Globes, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and two Tony Awards. As if that weren’t enough, Bette also became a mother in 1986.
She’s since raised her daughter Sophie to be an incredible young woman.
