Ali MacGraw Watch
Name: Ali MacGraw

Claim To Fame: She gained notice in 'Goodbye, Columbus', but real stardom came in 1970 with 'Love Story'.

Where Is She Now: In 1995 she wrote a well-received autobiography, Moving Pictures (which she now states was "not well written"), which described her struggles with alcohol and male dependence. She was treated for the former at the Betty Ford Center.

Made a tremendously successful Yoga video with the American Yoga Master Erich Schiffmann, 'Ali MacGraw Yoga Mind and Body', which was a bestseller upon release and was still popular more than a decade later. The video's impact was such that in June 2007 Vanity Fair magazine credited her for being one of the people responsible for the practice's recent popularity in the U.S. In keeping with her interests, she narrated a well-received documentary on 'Yoga, The Fire of Yoga' in 2003.

She made her Broadway theater debut in New York City in 2006 as a dysfunctional matriarch in the drama 'Festen' (The Celebration). She was also included in a Seventeen magazine issue for inspiring hairstyles.

In July 2006, she filmed a public service announcement for PETA.

Now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. On why she moved there she said, "I've lived here since 1994. I was living in Los Angeles when one of those wildfires took my house to the ground and I always thought, not having a victim mentality, that was a cosmic kick in the butt to get out of there. And I happened to have just bought a little tiny getaway house in the hills of Tesuque. Suddenly it became apparent that I was meant to live there."

Would she ever consider working on a feature film again?  "There's two answers to that. Just to be able to say, 'I did it, but I got so much money and here's a list of places that I gave
it,'" she says. "Or something with a director who believed I could do it, and about something that really mattered."

Looking at today's troubled young starlets. and politely not naming names, Ali observes that she was able to hold her own because stardom came to her when she was already almost 30.

In an interview a couple of years ago she said, "I live a very healthy lifestyle that would probably bore the daylights out of people. I do yoga every day. I meditate. I walk my dog for
40 minutes even if it means getting up at 5:30 in the morning because I want the stillness. I do all the things we were told as kids: I don't smoke or do drugs, I don't drink. It's not to be prissy; it's just that it's healthier for me."
