Terry Bradshaw is a living legend. Not only is he a former professional football quarterback, but he is also a singer, actor, TV personality and businessman. As a football player, he won 4 Super Bowl titles in a 6-year period, becoming the first quarterback to ever win 3 and 4 Super Bowls. His outstanding physical skills and of-the-field leadership contributed a lot to the successful history of his team, Pittsburgh Steelers. After retiring from professional football, Terry became a key media commentator on NFL football, having worked for both the CBS and FOX networks. As an actor, he has starred in productions such as Cubed, Las Vegas, Robots, Malcolm in the Middle, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., Stockers, and many more.

Enough about his career, though. I am sure that fans want to know more about Terry’s personal life. He was born on September 2, 1948, in Shreveport, Louisiana, to Bill and Novis Bradshaw. He attended Woodlawn High School, where he set a national record for throwing the javelin 245 ft. He then attended Louisiana Tech University, where he was spotted by numerous pro scouts. Most of them considered him to be the most outstanding college football player. Regarding his love life, know that Terry was married 3 times. First, he got married with former Miss Teen Age America Melissa Babish in 1972. Their marriage only lasted a year. Then, he married ice skater JoJo Starbuck in 1976. They remained married until 1983. That same year, Terry married Charlotte Hopkins. They have two daughters together: Rachel and Erin. This marriage also ended in divorce.

After ending his professional career, Terry confessed that he had frequently experienced anxiety attacks after games. Those panic attacks worsened in the late 1990s, after he divorced for the third time. He even said that he could not bounce back. Additional symptoms included weight loss, sleeplessness, and frequent crying. Doctors diagnosed him with clinical depression and he has been on Paxil regularly ever since. Those anxiety attacks also prevented him from appearing in public, so he did not even attend the funeral of the team founder and owner Art Rooney. However, Terry Bradshaw managed to get back on track and he is in the limelight once again. Currently, he is a TV analyst and co-host of Fox NFL Sunday. Although he suffers from short-term memory loss, Terry Bradshaw expressed interest in performing on Dancing with the Stars, on the condition that Paula Deen also appear. Now that’s something we would all want to see!

While athletes eventually have to retire from playing their sport, that doesn’t mean that they simply want to have a traditional retirement. Because many of these individuals are such high achievers, they want to continue working after their athletic career comes to an end. One of the ways that many retired athletes attempt to do this is by acting. However, just because someone was a great athlete doesn’t mean that they’re going to be a good actor. More often than not, their acting careers simply don’t work out. But every once in a while, a retired athlete is able to do well on this path.

One example of someone who has been successful in landing multiple acting roles is Terry Bradshaw. Since 1978, Terry Bradshaw has had 16 different acting roles. One of the reasons that he has been successful in something that hasn’t worked out for so many other retired athletes is because of his extensive experience in front of the camera. For example, during the last decade, he has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno 30 different times. This type of experience makes it easier for him to be more comfortable acting.

Quite a few of his acting roles have been on television shows. He has appeared on the shows Cubed, Las Vegas and Malcolm in the Middle. Between 1978 and 1981, he was in three different movies. They were Hopper, Stockers and The Cannonball Run. For younger fans of Terry Bradshaw, his most notable move acting role was in Failure to Launch. One of the funniest scenes in this movie was when his adult son came back home and saw Terry Bradshaw in his “naked room.”
