Reba McEntire

Actress

3/28/1955 (64 years old) McAlester, Oklahoma, United States

One of the most beloved singers of all time, country or otherwise, this charismatic star has won a slew of awards and honors for her popular recordings. In the early ‘90s, she branched out into acting with remarkable success. A supporting role in the delightful B-movie Tremors led to other work, mostly in TV projects. But 2001 proved to be her banner year as an actress. Not only did McEntire win raves and a Drama Desk Award as the legendary Annie Oakley in a Broadway revival of the musical Annie Get Your Gun, she also launched her eponymous hit sitcom, which ran for six seasons and earned her a Golden Globe nomination and a People’s Choice Award. She lent her unmistakable voice to a number of animated films, including Charlotte’s Web and The Fox and the Hound 2. And she’s proven herself to be a smart businesswoman as well: In 1988, she cofounded the management company Starstruck Entertainment with her husband, Narvel Blackstock, and has also launched her own lines of clothing, footwear, luggage and home goods.
