Jan Smithers is a well-known actress who rose to fame after appearing in the 1987 film Mr. Nice Guy. Born on July 3, 1949 in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, Smithers had a middle-class upbringing with her father being a legal practitioner and her mother a homemaker. She grew up with three sisters, but tragically lost her elder sister in an accident at the age of 21. Smithers attended the William Howard Taft Charter High School in California before enrolling in the Chouinard Art Institute (now known as the California Institute of the Arts) to study acting.
Smithers’ acting career began somewhat accidentally when she was approached by two men while watching surfing with friends. They asked if she would be interested in being featured as a “Californian girl” in their magazine, and this led to her being featured on the cover of the 1966 edition of Newsweek. This sparked her mother’s interest in helping her pursue acting, and she began doing commercials before eventually enrolling in the Chouinard Art Institute to study acting full-time.
Smithers’ acting career took off in the 1970s, with her first acting role being in an episode of Love Story in 1973. She went on to have guest roles in various television series and dramas such as Starsky and Hutch, The Love Boat, Mike Hammer, Murder, She Wrote, and Hotel. However, it was her role as Bailey Quarters in the 1978 series WKPR in Cincinnati that brought her widespread recognition. Smithers also had a successful film career, appearing in movies such as Where the Lilies Bloom, Trick or Treat, Our Winning Season, and The Love Tapes.
In terms of her personal life, Smithers has been married twice, with her first marriage to Kipp Whitman lasting only a year. She later married actor James Brolin in 1986, with the couple meeting on the set of the show Hotel. They had a daughter named Molly together, but ultimately decided to end their nine-year marriage due to work commitments and a lack of time for each other. Smithers has not been involved in any controversies or rumors, but did have a scar on her chin as a result of an accident she was involved in during high school.
Smithers’ net worth is estimated to be around $6 million, with her acting career and philanthropic work contributing to her wealth. Despite her fame, Smithers does not have social media accounts and prefers to keep a low profile. In terms of her physical appearance, Smithers is known for her slim physique and stands at a height of 5 feet 7 inches (1.73 meters). She weighs approximately 55 kg and has measurements of 35-25-35 inches for her bust, waist, and hips, respectively. She has blonde hair and blue eyes.
