Raquel Welch At 71: One Of The Hottest Women Of All Time


Share this Post

Raquel Welch, born Jo Raquel Tejada, seventy one years ago in Chicago is an American actress, an author and an iconic sex symbol. This past December, according to Men's Health, Raquel is one of the hottest women of all time, coming in second out of the top one hundred listed. For those of you who can't help wondering, Jennifer Aniston came in first (not Marilyn Monroe) on the list of the top one hundred hottest women of all time.

The iconic sex symbol Welch has had a remarkable career in Hollywood spanning over five decades. Her image has always been that of a sexy woman in control, not a giggly innocent girl or an up-to-no-good, naughty temptress. According to her recent interview in Men's Health, she describes herself as "just another American actress with a nice rack." Welch has had a recent retrospective of her career at New York's Lincoln Center entitled, "Cinematic Goddess: American Sex Symbol," in which she was credited with helping to transform America's feminine ideal. This month, she'll be guest starring on the hit CBS drama CSI: Miami.

One of Welch's most famous and memorable movies, "One Million Years, B.C.," featured Raquel in an unforgettable and never before seen fur bikini. The curvy beauty and her pre-historic outfit were immortalized on a poster in 1966. You can buy it on eBay for $675 if you're interested. According to Welch, the actual fur bikini from the movie is currently in mothballs waiting to be hung in the Smithsonian museum.

In her recent interview with Men's Health Raquel spoke about how sexiness comes from having some mystery. "It's just dehumanizing. And I have to honestly say, I think this era of porn is at least partially responsible for for it. Where is the anticipation and the personalization? It's all pre-fab now. You have these images coming at you unannounced and unsolicited. It just gets to be so plastic and phony to me."
