Biography

A popular sex symbol of film and television throughout the 1960s and 1970s, actress Jill St. John was as known for her high-wattage boyfriends as she was for her roles on screen. Signed with a major studio while still in her teens, St. John played spunky daughters in a slew of comedies like "Summer Love" (1958) prior to emerging as a sultry starlet in efforts like "The Lost World" (1960) and "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed?" (1963). Throughout this period, several short-lived marriages to millionaires, race car drivers and singers competed for attention with St. John in films like "The Oscar" (1966) and "Tony Rome" (1967), the latter film starring Frank Sinatra, just one of her reported love interests at the time. Her most notable film role came in the form of Tiffany Case, the first American Bond Girl opposite Sean Connery's British Secret agent in "Diamonds Are Forever" (1971). Although she continued to appear periodically in film and on television, St. John entered a period of semi-retirement in Colorado before gaining a certain degree of infamy as the woman who comforted grieving widower Robert Wagner after the sad and suspicious drowning death of revered actress Natalie Wood in 1981. Despite her previous marital track record, St. John's marriage to Wagner in 1990 stood the test of time, with the former Hollywood sex kitten clearly enjoying the second phase of her life and career.
