Movie Dress And No Bra Won Shepherd Moonlighting Role
CYBILL SHEPHERD landed her lead role in TV hit MOONLIGHTING thanks to a sexy dress she wore in an ALFRED HITCHCOCK remake.
The actress reveals her look in The Lady Vanishes inspired Moonlighting's sexy Maddie Hayes character.
She tells WENN, "(Creator) Glenn (Gordon Caron) realised after writing the first 50 pages that he was writing it for me because of a dress I wore in The Lady Vanishes.
"I wore this one dress - they only made eight of them - cut out of silk satin, and I didn't wear a bra. My breasts were so much less versatile back then.
"I asked him why did he think of me for the part and he said, 'It was that dress, that dress.' He couldn't even remember the name of the movie."
