Cybill Lynne Shepherd (born February 18, 1950) is an American actress, singer and former model.

Shepherd's better known roles include Jacy in The Last Picture Show (1971), Kelly in The Heartbreak Kid (1972), Betsy in Taxi Driver (1976), Maddie Hayes in Moonlighting (1985–1989), Cybill Sheridan in Cybill (1995–1998), Phyllis Kroll in The L Word (2007–2009), and Madeleine Spencer in Psych (2008–2013).

Biography

In her autobiography she revealed that in 1978 she called her mother, crying, unhappy with the way her life and career were going, to which her mother replied "Cybill, come home." She went home to Memphis where she met, and began dating local auto parts dealer and nightclub entertainer, David M. Ford. She became pregnant and they married that year, but the marriage ended in divorce in 1982. Their daughter, Clementine Ford, was born in 1979.

In 1987 she became pregnant by chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim, and married him, giving birth to twins, Cyrus Zachariah and Molly Ariel Shepherd-Oppenheim during the fourth season of Moonlighting. They divorced in 1990. Oppenheim went on to marry actress Jenilee Harrison. It was Harrison who noticed a patch on Shepherd's back which was diagnosed as melanoma and subsequently removed.

In June 2012 she became engaged to boyfriend Andrei Nikolajevic.


Religious beliefs
Shepherd has previously described herself as "a goddess-worshipping Christian Pagan Buddhist"; also known as a matriarchal religion.

In October 2014, as part of the publicity for Do You Believe?, the upcoming Christian-themed film in which she will be starring, she revealed that she had returned to her Christian faith. "I was born a Christian, sang in the choir. Then I lost touch with my saviour Jesus Christ. I stopped talking to Him and praying. Then I just started talking to Jesus and I started to feel really good and I got the offer to do this film."


Autobiography
Shepherd made the following claims in her autobiography:


She dated Elvis Presley in the early 1970s and cared for him, but could not handle his dependence on drugs, and ultimately chose her boyfriend, film director, Peter Bogdanovich, over Presley.
She agreed to a date with actor Jack Nicholson, to make Bogdanovich jealous. She later canceled the date and Nicholson would not speak to her again, except to say "hi" at a party many years later.
She did not like working with Charles Grodin on The Heartbreak Kid (1972), and that it took her several years to like him enough to have a one-night stand with him.
Robert De Niro asked her out during the filming of Taxi Driver (1976). She turned him down, and he did not speak to her, except in character, for the rest of the filming. She later said that she regretted turning him down.
She had a sexual encounter with co-star Don Johnson during the making of the television miniseries, The Long, Hot Summer (1985).
The jazz musician, Stan Getz, "came on" to her during a recording session for her album, but she declined and he did not speak to her.
She and her Moonlighting costar, Bruce Willis, almost became lovers off-screen, but they agreed that it would hurt the series so they chose not to consummate their relationship.

The film is a celebration of the casting profession, highlighting its previously unsung role in film history while also serving as an elegy to the lost era of the New Hollywood. It focuses on casting pioneer Marion Dougherty, an iconoclast whose exquisite taste, tenacity and gut instincts brought a new kind of actor to the screen that would mark the end of the old studio system and help to usher in this revolutionary new period. The film draws a line through the last half century to show us the profession’s evolution from studio system type-casting to the rise of large ensemble films populated with unique and diverse casts.
