GREENWICH, Conn. -- Happy birthday to Greenwich’s Shelley Marie Hack!
Hack, who has owned a home in Greenwich, turns 67 on Sunday. The model, actress, producer, and political and media adviser was born July 6, 1947, in White Plains, N.Y.
She began her career as a teen fashion model and became the face of Revlon's Charlie perfume from the mid-1970s until the early 1980s. She ranked among the 1970s supermodels.
Her feature film debut was in Woody Allen's award-winning film "Annie Hall" (1977), as "street stranger." She is best known for her role as Tiffany Welles, a role Michelle Pfeiffer auditioned for, in the television series "Charlie's Angels" for one season (1979-80).
She received positive reviews in Martin Scorsese's film "The King of Comedy" (1983). She starred with Annette O'Toole and Meredith Baxter Birney in the critically acclaimed "Vanities" (1981), a television production.
She had a well-received leading role in the cult horror film "The Stepfather" and was a regular on two short-lived TV series of the 1980s: "Cutter to Houston" (1983) and "Jack and Mike" (1986-87).
After she left acting in the late '90s, she entered politics. She became a registration and polling station supervisor in the 1997 elections in Bosnia-Herzegovina and produced the first-ever televised presidential debates there as well.
She also produced the debates in Sarajevo, Mostar, and the two in Banja Luka.
She established herself in a new field as a media consultant for pre- and post-conflict countries. She became a member of the Pacific Council on International Policy.
In October 2000, appearing as herself, Hack returned to the Charlie's Angels Townsend Agency office as guest host on A&E "Biography."
In January 2008, Hack made an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."
Hack and her husband, Harry Winer, are company principals for the production company Smash Media ("Entertainment That Brings People Together") that develops and produces content for motion pictures, television and new media.
