Raquel Welch – The 60’s Diva

The Three Musketeers actress made her way to several homes through her glamorous posters. Her appearance in One Million Years B.C. may be short but was surely impactful. Welch’s images in the doe-skin bikini became one of the best-selling posters that turned her into an international s*x symbol. It is not easy to move forward when you are acclaimed as s*x symbol, but Welch always took the title positively and proved with her performances that she is a good actress and singer as well. Her beauty was just an added bonus.

Her appearance as a cavewoman in a bikini left a major impression on the audience which claimed Welch as their s*x symbol. But it can be tough to work when you are s*xually objectified by the public. Welch in an interview opened up and shared her experience of dealing with this unwanted status.

“Was not brought up to be a sex symbol, nor is it in my nature to be one. The fact that I became one is probably the loveliest, most glamorous, and fortunate misunderstanding.”
