Estelle Eggleston Wiki Biography
Estelle Eggleston was born as on 1 October 1938, in Yazoo City, Mississippi USA, to Dovey Estelle, a nurse, and Thomas Ellett Eggleston, an insurance salesman. As Stella Stevens, she is an actress, best known for her roles in the films “Girls! Girls! Girls!”, “The Nutty Professor”, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”, “Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows” and “The Poseidon Adventure”.
A noted actress, how loaded is Stella Stevens? Sources state that Stevens has acquired a wealth of over $10 million, as of early 2017, earned during her acting career which began in the late ‘50s.
Stevens’ family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, when she was four years old, where she attended Memphis Tech High School and later Memphis State College.
She made her film debut in 1959 with a small part in the musical “Say One for Me”, but winning a Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year – Actress. Later that year she was cast as Appassionata Von Climax in the musical Li’l Abner, which enabled her to sign a contract with Paramount, paving her way to Hollywood stardom and a sizable net worth.
In 1962 she landed the role of Robin Gantner in the musical comedy film “Girls! Girls! Girls!”, alongside the legendary Elvis Presley. A year later she appeared as Stella Purdy in the comedy film “The Nutty Professor”, and as the would-be “Miss Montana” beauty queen in another comedy, “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”. These performances put her on the map, considerably adding to her net worth.
Opportunities continued to come Stevens’ way. In 1964 she signed with Columbia Records, and went on to land roles in the 1965 films “Synanon” and “The Secret of My Success”. The following year she had the leading role of government agent Gail Hendricks in the spy spoof “The Silencers”, co-starring with Dean Martin, then in 1968 she portrayed Sister George in the comedy “Where Angels Go, Trouble Follows”.
She also appeared in several television series during this time, including “Bonanza”, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”, “General Electric Theater”, “Ben Casey”, and the soap opera “General Hospital”. By the end of the ’60s, Stevens enjoyed an astonishing popularity with audiences, and of course her wealth was boosted.
Aside from acting, this decade brought her much success in modeling as well. She was Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month, was twice featured in Playboy pictorials and was included in the magazine’s 100 Sexiest Stars of the 20th Century, becoming one of the most photographed women in the world, which did her net worth no harm at all.
In the early ’70s, Stevens starred as Hildy in the Western “The Ballad of Cable Hogue”, and as Linda Rogo in the disaster film “The Poseidon Adventure”. Around this time, she started to work regularly in television series and films too, appearing in series such as “Banacek”, “Police Story”, “The Love Boat” and “Hart to Hart”.
Her television resume continued to grow in the next decade, as did her net worth, appearing in series including “Newhart”, “Highway to Heaven”, “Murder, She Wrote” and “Father Dowling Mysteries”, as well as landing a recurring role as Lute-Mae Sanders in the soap opera “Flamingo Road”, and as Phyllis Blake in “Santa Barbara”.
Around this time, she produced and directed a documentary called “The American Heroine”, as well as the comedy/romance film “The Ranch”. Stevens went on with her television work during the ’90s as well, appearing in series such as “The Commish”, “Burke’s Law”, “Silk Stalkings” and “General Hospital”, and in the popular mini-series “In Cold Blood”. Although her film career may have slowed during these three decades, she appeared in numerous movies in each of them, and tackling projects in a variety of genres considerably added to Stevens’ wealth.
Her most recent film appearances were in the 2005 films “Glass Trap”, “Hell to Pay” and “Popstar”, and her most recent television involvement was in the series “Twenty Good Years” in 2006.
During her career, Stevens has also appeared in various stage productions, such as that of “Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple”. Additionally, she has released a novel called “Razzle Dazzle”, co-written with William Hegner.
In her private life, from 1954 to 1957 Stevens was married to Noble Herman Stephens, with whom she has one child. Since 1983, she has been in partnership with rock guitarist Bob Kulick.

Estelle Eggleston Quotes
- It’s been my heart’s desire to direct since I started doing movies. I directed two films in the ’70s and ’80s. One was a feature-length documentary. But I’ve still not made my debut with a big film. I’m working on doing that now… So why has it taken me so long? Because it was hard as a “sexpot”, as I was labeled in the ’60s and ’70s, to have people take me seriously as a producer or director. They would rather see me without my clothes on.
- I did the best I could with the tools I had and the opportunities given me. My life was screwed up early by getting pregnant at 15 and married, then a baby at 16, then divorced at 17. But in spite of that start, I’ve done all right.
