Warning: Looking at this collection of hip images can make you nostalgic for a time that many people believe was the greatest to ever live in. The discretion of the viewer is urged as some images may not be appropriate for some.

In 1975, a youthful Sally Field poses for the camera

We’ve got a variety of gorgeous pictures with some of the most well-known people from history as well as heartwarming tales of friendship.

While some of these shots are just stunning, evoking nostalgia for bygone eras, others feature well-known performers like Willie Nelson having fun with his fellow musicians and comedians like Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi hamming it up for the camera.

Sally Fields has quietly been America’s sweetheart for many years, but she claims that throughout the 1970s, despite receiving positive reviews for her performance in Sybil, she wasn’t really feeling loved by the public.

Fields revealed in an interview with Oprah that she accepted the part in Smokey and the Bandit because she believed it would enable people to see her “potential” in its fullest:

“Burt Reynolds called me up personally. I pretended it wasn’t shocking and scary that he would call me. He said he had this movie and the script wasn’t very good but that he trusted me and would make it work. Actually, there was no script; in the end, we made up half the movie. The challenge for me was that people saw Sybil and said, ‘Boy, she can act—but man, is she ugly!’ So I thought if I did a movie with Burt and he thought I was cute, then somebody else might think I was cute and I could continue acting.”

Millions tuned into “Mork & Mindy” to catch Raquel Welch guest star as a wild alien, 1979

With Mork and Mindy, Robin Williams brought the beloved animated series to millions of homes in the 1970s. The show’s second season saw a major spike in viewership with “Mork vs. the Necrotons,” an hour-long special that starred Raquel Welch as Captain Nirvana.

The bizarre episode revolves around Nirvana and her extraterrestrial friends attempting to abduct Mork in order to torment him. The arrival of the babalicious Welch was the main focus of this episode’s marketing, which employed the following tagline:

“Raquel Welch stars as the sultry space spy who wants More… real bad.”

Audrey Hepburn soaks up the sun, 1950s

Although Audrey Hepburn’s on-screen persona in the 1950s won over audiences, it was her portrayal of Princess Ann in Roman Holiday that cemented the actress’s popularity among theatregoers.

She was always the first to brush off compliments, and in an interview with the New York Times, she attempted to pinpoint just why her work was appreciated by others:

“I myself was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it. That’s what I’d like to think maybe has been the appeal. People have recognized something in me they have themselves — the need to receive affection and the need to give it. Does that sound soppy?”

Jim Henson in a sea of Muppets in 1970

In the 1970s, some of our closest pals weren’t human; instead, they were Muppets.

Jim Henson, the inventive impresario, puppeteered the Muppets like a crazy person with six arms, using them to realise his wildest fantasies.

Henson was crawling around like a crazy man waist deep in water while Kermit was playing the banjo in the swamp.

He committed his everything to his job, sacrificing a great deal of his personal life in the process, but his efforts paid off, producing one of the most significant and bizarre works of children’s entertainment in history.

Daisy Duke: The Coolest Gal on TV

Daisy Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard unquestionably tops the list of female action heroes.

She was not only one of the s*****t women on TV in the groovy age, but she also won over the audience’s hearts every single week.

Daisy Duke, as portrayed by Catherine Bach, was more than simply a hottie in short denim shorts. She demonstrated to young ladies worldwide that everything is possible.

Daisy Duke’s continued fame was elucidated by Bach, who stated:

“Whatever she did, she could shoot better, drive better, do everything better than a guy. Whenever the guys were in trouble, she stepped in. She wasn’t acting tough, she just was.”

When taking over the streets of NYC in 1977, young Al Pacino and Robert De Niro acquired that look in their eyes. If only we knew what these bad boys were up to that night

Despite their limited film appearances together, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro have a half-century history together.

In scenes that never crossed over, they made their screen debut together in The Godfather Part II from 1974.

Although fans hadn’t seen them together on television until 1995’s Heat, they had been friends for longer than most people have been alive. Pacino recalled the first time they met, he told GQ:

“I remember the meeting very clearly. Unbelievably, I saw this guy, I thought, Wow, he’s got such charisma. He wasn’t doing anything. He was just walking. Remember? You know, he was Bob. But you felt something from him.”

Comedians Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor trade comedy secrets, 1980s

Richard Pryor was already a huge star when Eddie Murphy began to make his breakthrough with comic audiences.

Although Murphy claims to have looked up to Pryor, there was originally hostility between the two of them because it was regrettably extremely uncommon for several black comedians to receive the level of acclaim that Pryor did. Murphy said to Seinfeld, Jerry:

“Back when I broke, the town was still doing a one black guy at a time thing. So when I showed up, Richard kind of had this—there was this feeling like this was the new one, so Richard kind of felt threatened.”

Sophia Vergara: From Model to Stardom

Sophia Vergara started off as a model and television presenter before rising to prominence as one of the highest-paid actors on television thanks to her role in Modern Family.

In the telenovela Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma, she caused a stir. It’s amazing to see how little she has changed throughout the years based on her images. Time has not diminished the everlasting beauty of Vergara.

John Travolta and Sylvester Stallone leaving Studio 54, 1983

Although it would seem unusual for these two very different performers to be hanging out at Studio 54, they really became friends while filming Staying Alive, the Broadway-themed Saturday Night Fever sequel.

Travolta starred in the movie, which was directed by Stallone.

In order to be in shape for the part, Stallone had Travolta go through an exercise regimen.

Travolta’s daily exercise regimen transformed him from a scrawny hottie into an enormously strong guy. He stated to People Magazine:

“People like Sly can look at a body like clay and mold it. I never thought of designing a body. I just thought, ‘Diet, run, lose it and you’ll look good.’ I didn’t think of shaping the shoulder, the triceps, the waist.”
