From her time singing and acting as a child to playing the iconic character Jeannie, Barbara Eden has a lot to be proud of. The film and television star has a long and successful career that many in Hollywood would love to emulate — and she doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon. “I like to work,” Eden told The Hollywood Reporter in 2021. “I really do. It’s just what I do. That’s all; that’s my life.”
Not only does Eden love to work, but she’s also been honored for her work throughout the decades. One of her most memorable honors was receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “It meant a great deal to me, especially since Bob Hope came to the event, and so did my son,” Eden told People about the ceremony.
Although Eden continues to work, she also enjoys life in Los Angeles with her husband. Despite the ups and downs of Hollywood, as well as personal tragedies, the star remains grateful. “I’m really lucky,” she also told People. “I have dear friends. I have a wonderful family, a very supportive husband, a dog who is adorable but a brat! Yes, I’m very happy.”
