You might have first met Sally Kellerman in the '60s (playing Dr. Elizabeth Dehner on Star Trek), the '70s (as "Hot Lips" Houlihan from MASH), or the '80s (as Rodney Dangerfield's teacher/lover in Back To School) -- whatever the case, you know that face and voice from somewhere. And if none of those ring a bell, perhaps it was her Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing commercials, or her recent run as Marc Maron's TV mom. 

Since the 1960s, Kellerman has been a mainstay in film and television, and she’s even released a few albums. While many stars of her caliber have worked in the same medium since their beginnings she’s moved around from form to form in order to follow her bliss. This kind of flitting may not work for everyone, but it shows that Kellerman isn’t afraid to take risks. Her six-decade career has taken her to some fascinating places, which makes it easy to be a fan.
