Kellerman's acting career spans nearly 60 years, and her role as Major Margaret "Hot Lips" O'Houlihan in Robert Altman's film M*A*S*H (1970) earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. After MASH, she appeared in a number of the director's projects: the films Brewster McCloud (1970), Welcome to L.A. (1976), The Player (1992) and Prêt-à-Porter (1994), and the short-lived anthology TV series Gun (1997). In addition to her work with Altman, Kellerman has appeared in The Outer Limits (1965), Star Trek (1966), Last of the Red Hot Lovers (1972), Back to School (1986), The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman (2006), 90210 (2008), Chemistry (2011) and Maron (2013).
At age 18 Kellerman signed a recording contract with Verve Records, but her first album (Roll With the Feelin ') was not recorded until 1972. A second album, Sally, was released in 2009. Kellerman also contributed songs to the soundtracks for Brewster McCloud (1970), Lost Horizon (1973), Rafferty and the Gold Dust Twins (1975) and Boris and Natasha: The Movie (1992).
She has done commercial voice-over work for Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing, Mercedes-Benz and Revlon. Kellerman's animation work includes The Mouse and His Child (1977), Sesame Street Presents Follow That Bird (1985), Happily Ever After (1990), Dinosaurs (1992), Unsupervised (2012) and The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange (2013). In April 2013 she released her memoir, Read My Lips: Stories of a Hollywood Life, describing her trials and tribulations in the entertainment business.
Kellerman has an older sister, Diana Dean Kellerman; her younger sister, Victoria Vaughn (Vicky) Kellerman, died in infancy. Her mother was a Christian Scientist from Portland, Arkansas, and her father was from St. Louis, Missouri. When Kellerman was in fifth grade, the family moved to San Fernando, California.
During the 1960s Kellerman underwent a botched home abortion, and went to a hospital for the first time (due to her Christian Science upbringing).
After the release of MASH, on December 17, 1970 Kellerman married Starsky & Hutch producer Rick Edelstein. Anjanette Comer, Morgan Ames, Lisabeth Hush, Joanne Linville and Launa Anders were among her bridesmaids.
On March 6, 1972 Kellerman divorced Edelstein, citing irreconcilable differences. After the divorce Kellerman adopted her niece, Claire. Claire was the daughter of Kellerman's sister, Diana. When Diana moved to southern France, she left Claire in the care of Kellerman and Claire's father; when Claire's father died, Kellerman received full custody.
On May 11, 1980, Kellerman married Jonathan D. Krane in a private ceremony at Jennifer Jones' Malibu home. In 1989, they adopted newborn twins Jack and Hannah.
