Barbara Eden is best known for her role as the belly-baring genie on NBC’s 1960s hit I Dream of Jeannie. Although shedding its squeaky clean image from the 1950s, America still wasn’t quite ready for the bodacious belly button.
Censors required that Eden’s navel be plugged with a flesh-colored cloth while filming. It begs to wonder what they would have done if she’d had an “outie.”
Although Eden subsequently appeared in a string of movies and TV series, she could never shake her most notable character. In 2013, Eden once again donned her infamous genie costume and appeared alongside President Bill Clinton, Sir Elton John, and Fergie for an European HIV/AIDS charity event. On a related note, President Clinton is still trying to put his eyes back in his head.
She was a true master of cleavage. Way back even in the 60’s:
Eden was always compared to the legendary Elizabeth Montgomery and I Dream of Jeannie was even created as a rival show against the popularity of Bewitched. But the comparisons are unfair. They’re greatly different actresses with different personalities.
