Loretta Swit-81

Loretta Swit is born to play the role of Major Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan on M*A*S*H; in fact, she had won two Emmy’s for playing the role. She was also reported to be a bit picky about the characters she takes on. Her last TV role was in 1972 while her last film role was in 1996. The now 81-year-old continues to take a stand in community theaters around the country.

She is also pursuing her other passions for painting and animal activism. She even published SwitHeart: The Watercolor Artistry & Animal Activism of Loretta Swit. The proceeds went to her campaign to end animal cruelty. She lives by the motto, “We should be able to be ourselves. Make a political stand if you want to.” She must have a good finance manager to handle all her money.
