‘Charlie’s Angels’ Actress Cheryl Ladd Shares Scary Incident With Hollywood Exec


70-year-old Cheryl Ladd is opening up about a frightening incident she had at the beginning of her career. She said that she was only 19 years old and had just moved from South Dakota to Los Angeles to try to pursue an acting career.

She met with a male Hollywood executive, whom she did not name, and said he chased her. Cheryl explained, “I was about 19, and I did get chased around one desk. I literally ran around the desk and out the door.”

Even so, she continued working in Hollywood and eventually got her big break in Charlie’s Angels. She was on the show from 1977 until 1981 and said that it was “the best of times and the worst of times.”

She said, “People forget that when you did a series like ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ there were 29 episodes [a season]. And, not to mention, all the wardrobe fittings and all the interviews. We just worked ourselves to the bone. I had a 2-year-old daughter when I started ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ It was really, really difficult on so many levels. During the series, I got divorced [from first husband David Ladd]. So, yeah, there was a lot of stuff that happened then.”
