Debra Winger, an iconic figure in Hollywood during the eighties, looks completely unrecognizable at 68, over four decades after her role in the hit movie “Urban Cowboy.”

Winger, who gained fame from major hits like “An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Terms of Endearment,” was best known for her role in the 1980 romantic drama “Urban Cowboy,” where she starred alongside John Travolta.

Her performance earned her nominations for several awards, including a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress and a BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer.

In the mid-nineties, Winger stepped away from the spotlight, with her last appearance on the big screen being in the 1995 film “Forget Paris.” She did not return to movies for six years.

During her break from Hollywood, Winger served as a lecturer at Harvard University and authored a memoir discussing her decision to leave acting. In her book, she expressed her love for the craft but her discontent with the business side of the industry.

Winger’s career includes a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Actress in 1984 and three Best Actress Oscar nominations for her roles in “An Officer and a Gentleman,” “Terms of Endearment,” and “Shadowlands.”

In 1996, she married writer/director Arliss Howard, whom she met on the set of “Wilder Napalm.” They have three children together: one each from their previous marriages and a son, Gideon, born in 1997.

Recently, Winger attended the premiere of “Drive Away Dolls” in New York. Sporting her natural silver curly hair, she wore a dark blazer, blue blouse, loose-fitting dark trousers, and chunky black boots.

Despite her transformed appearance, she maintained her signature style with minimal makeup and her thick curls, which were once brunette.
