She has constantly proved herself throughout her music and acting career. Here are some of her most iconic moments.
Dolly’s appearance attracted a lot of negative attention.
Dolly was defined by her makeup and cosmetic surgeries, saying this: “I’d like to think I have a brain beneath this wig and a heart beneath the boobs.”
The singer expressed her true thoughts on the matter saying “don’t let these false eyelashes lead you to believe that I’m as phony as I look – Because I run true and deep.”
Dolly Parton will be America’s sweetheart.
Her humor is one of her best traits. However behind the scenes Dolly had many struggles from being booed off stage to having turmoil in both professional and romantic relationships.
Dolly never became a mother and often felt depressed.
Dolly simply said that she had to give it up in order to continue with her career. Her and Dean have often wondered what their children would look like.
Although Dolly Parton doesn’t have children of her own, she does all she can to help those in need.
Parton is involved in numerous charities to aid children and their own educational ventures.
She began the book-gifting program Imagination Library project, which mails free, high-quality books to children from birth up to age five, no matter their family’s income.
“So when I got ready to start the program, I thought I’m going to do this for my dad and I’m going to bring him along with me to help me with that,” she said.
According to Parton, there’s been up to 125 million kids involved in the program. She says her father was the big inspiration for starting it.
“So, he got to live long enough to see it really take off and start doing good, and so he loved it when the kids called me the Book Lady. He was prouder of that than saying that my daughter’s a star: ‘My daughter’s the Book Lady.’”
“I’ve made sacrifices, but I think, like I said, I believe what I know I’m supposed to do,” Parton said. “I’ve made the sacrifice of time… and not having time to spend with family, and you give up family and friends, vacation, and work without end, 24/7, 365, but you got to make the sacrifice.”
