Is there anything better than a great gal and a fast car? If that exists we don’t want to hear about it. Raquel Welch wasn’t just an it girl in the ‘60s she was a bonafide jaw dropping star who also happened to be one the best interviews on the talk show circuit.

As much as we see Welch as a frivolous symbol of the groovy era, Welch says that there’s a huge distance between her real self and the image that people have of her. She told Rolling Stone:

There was a huge discrepancy between the symbol – Raquel Welch – and what I could ever aspire to be for real. The stupidity of it is that once somebody says you’re something, you try to be it. That’s the stupidity. I fell into that trap for the first couple of years. It’s like being an ex-convict, I think. First you do your time, then you get out and they put you on parole, but they’re always waiting for you to goof up.

This American beauty is most well known for playing Pamela Barnes Ewing on the hit TV show Dallas, however she was actually retired when she took the role. Principal was working as a talent agent at the time and thinking about going to law school.

Principal’s plans changed when she read the script for Dallas and realized that she needed to be on the show. Even though she’d been away from sets for years, she says that Dallas immediately felt like home:

What I remember most about the first day of shooting Dallas was an unexpected feeling of deja vu. Everything was new to me; I was nervous, and yet I felt strangely sure that I was where I was supposed to be and with the people I was supposed to be with as though this had happened before.
