The stunning Barbara Eden is 92 this year, but you’d never know it by looking at her. The actress from “I Dream of Jeannie” looks as beautiful as ever, so we had to show you some new images of her.
Barbara Eden’s birthday is August 23 and she was born Barbara Jean Morehead. She made her stage debut in the church choir and has since performed with other groups. She takes voice lessons and acting classes, and she excels at both.
In 1951, her stunning good looks earned her the crown of Miss San Francisco.

Her television career began out in 1955 on The Johnny Carson Show and continued with other shows and films. Her most famous part was as a genie who is freed from her bottle in I Dream of Jeannie. The show ran for a total of five years.
An official Barbara Eden Instagram account surprised her admirers on her recent birthday by posting a picture of her from when she was much older.
In part, it said, “We wish our favourite blonde, Rider of the Wild Surf, Voyager to the Bottom of the Sea, nemesis of the Harper Valley PTA, and of course, the eternal Lady in the Bottle, a very happy Birthday today!”
Barbara was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1988 for her achievements in the television industry.
Her autobiography, Jeannie Out of the Bottle, was published in 2011, and in it she discusses her early life, her rise to prominence in her twenties, her marriages, and the tragic loss of her son.
The actress, who turned 91 this year, claims that age is nothing more than a number. “It’s like any other birthday, I’m just happy to be here,” she told the Hollywood Reporter when asked how she was feeling about being another year older. Actually, I try not to dwell on it. Everyone else has, but I myself have never. I can’t wait to go back to the office.

Barbara is not yet retired and has no plans to stop working anytime soon. Her statement to the Hollywood Reporter, “I was working up until the shutdown point last March,” is indicative of this.
She’s glad she made it in the entertainment industry. “I’m very happy that I lived during that time,” she said to the Hollywood Reporter. “I’m glad I got my start back then, but times have changed. More actors are employed today than ever before because to the abundance of film and television projects being produced by services like Netflix and Amazon.
Barbara’s appearance is undeniably impressive.
