Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A dark-haired, somber-looking former model, Ali MacGraw gained instant screen stardom in "Goodbye, Columbus" (1969). The following year, she earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination as the doomed collegiate heroine of the sweet, extremely popular "Love Story" (1970). She was also effective in the comic role of Alan King's mistress in "Just Tell Me What You Want" (1980). For much of the 1980s, MacGraw found employment on the small screen. She played the daughter-in-law of Robert Mitchum's character in the mammoth ABC miniseries "War and Remembrance" (1983), and appeared as the sophisticated Lady Ashley Mitchell for the 1984-85 season of "Dynasty" (ABC). After publishing her memoirs in 1991, MacGraw concentrated on a career as a designer, appearing in the occasional project like her son Josh Evans' first feature "Glam" (1997).
