Roseanne Barr, a former TV star, is now in her seventies, and she is routinely body-shamed on social media. Nevertheless, her long-term partner still loves her despite her appearance.
The celebrated actress has accepted her age, yet social media trolls have mocked her appearance, labeled her names, and said she is old.
Twitter users have gone to the medium in the past to criticize Barr’s looks and indiscretions. Barr has gone through a significant metamorphosis, involving changing haircuts and dying her hair blonde. She wore a black jumpsuit with the then-popular teased hair fashion of the 1980s to the American Comedy Awards in 1987.
She continued to play with her hair, sporting a mullet on the set of “Roseanne” in 1990. Barr wore bangs and a bow on her head for the show’s Season 6 photoshoot in 1994.
For the Lane Bryant Fashion Show in 2001, the Utah native donned a haircut and a leopard print coat. Then, in 2005, she discarded her dark-colored hair for a new blonde haircut for the “Roseanne” DVD launch party.
Barr began to accept her natural gray hair on the red carpet at the TV Land Awards in 2008, keeping up with the aging process. In 2014, the author came out on another red carpet occasion with curls in her hair and leopard gloves to complement her all-black ensemble.
Barr chose an old Hollywood-inspired appearance for a charity event in 2015, having her blonde hair chopped short and pinned back.
The Emmy Award winner wore a long black gown with matching heels and a curled-up hairstyle to the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2018.
Following her Twitter saga in 2020, Barr resumed posting photographs of herself on social media, this time with her long gray hair in waves. Her most recent social media image, from 2021, showed her in a figure-hugging leopard print outfit and gray hair.
During an appearance in 2014, the award-winning Hollywood diva was frank about her weight loss journey. She stated that she simply chose to keep becoming healthy and getting rid of superfluous baggage to make her lighter on her feet and in her life.
Barr has made peace with aging and prefers to let her hair gray, in addition to being healthy and letting go of superfluous baggage. Unlike others, she is not scared to admit that she is getting older. Former presidential contender remarked once:”I want to look old because I am old. And I think it’s good to be old, too.”
Barr wore her long gray hair during an appearance on the daytime TV show “Live! With Regis and Kelly” in New York in January 2011. She wore a white coat with black pants and boots for the event. Her book, “Roseannearchy: Dispatches From the Nut Farm,” was released on January 4, 2011.
Barr also declared in March 2007 that she will discontinue colouring her hair and embrace her gray hair full-time. She used to wear black or platinum blonde.
Another admirer of Barr’s appearance is her twenty-year love partner, whom she met in 2002 while running a writing competition for her blog. In an interview in October 2008, she mentioned him saying that her partner and she have a lot in common. In certain ways, he is feminine. He used to live in the desert when he wrote for her. With his books, he was like a hermit.
Barr said that she and her partner talked over the phone for a year before meeting in person. She was smitten by his voice, she said. He had never sent her a picture of himself before their first encounter, and she assured him it didn’t matter what he appeared like.
They eventually agreed to meet, and she drove him to the airport. Barr said that she fell in love with him the moment he answered the door.
Johnny Argent, a composer and writer, has been Barr’s lifelong lover since 2003. Despite the fact that they never married, the pair has been living together in Hawaii.
The “She-Devil” actress had three marriages. In 1974, she married actor Ben Pentland, but the couple separated in 1990. Jessica and Jennifer are their daughters, while Jake Pentland is their son.
Barr married another actor, Tom Arnold, for the second time in 1990, and they divorced in 1994. In 1995, the mom of five married for the third time to actor Ben Thomas. They shared the birth of a boy called Buck Thomas. They divorced in 2002, though. Barr also has a daughter called Brandi Brown.
