Katey Sagal of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Reveals Her Beauty Regimen

By: Shana Norris - April 11, 2014

Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal recently spoke about her beauty regimen at the New York City premiere of Fargo.

“I take really good care of myself … I don’t smoke and I don’t drink. I sleep a lot, I just think it’s an inside job too. I think it’s attitude, a lot of it’s attitude. I try to have a good one.”

The 60-year-old actress, who has been described as “basically ageless,” currently stars as amoral matriarch Gemma Teller Morrow on the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy. Sagal’s husband Kurt Sutter is the show’s creator and executive producer.

The series’ seventh and final season is set to premiere in September.

“I haven’t gotten sad, I’m sort of not in that yet,” Sagal said. “I’m just not thinking about that. I suppose it will get sad. This one I’m sure there will be sad moments, but it has been an amazing ride.”

In 2011 Sagal won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama for her Sons of Anarchy role.

Prior to Sons of Anarchy, Sagal was best known as Peggy Bundy on the long-running sitcom Married … with Children. The series ran for an impressive eleven seasons from 1987 to 1997.

Soon after the launch of Sons of Anarchy in 2008, Sagal said “I wanted to do something different, to stretch, and this has provided that … I don’t want to kill Peggy Bundy. I would just like her to step aside.”

Apparently it wasn’t easy getting Peggy to step aside:

“I would literally have to go meet people so they could see I didn’t have big red hair and wear high heels constantly … It was just really ingrained in people.”

Between the two series, Sagal appeared in several film and television productions, most notably 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter and Futurama. She recently starred with Brittany Snow and Rumer Willis in There’s Always Woodstock, which premiered in March at the Gasparilla International Film Festival in Tampa, FL.

“I don’t know yet [what’s next],” Sagal said of her future. “I’m about to go back out there and see, see what happens next, so. I have been so blessed and so grateful to have had this job and the previous ones I’ve had. I feel very fortunate to have been here to have found this and to have [Kurt] write it for me.”
