Biography for Candice Bergen

She was born in Beverly Hills, California, the daughter of Frances Westerman and radio ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (whose parents, Johan Henriksson Berggren and Nilla Svensdotter Osberg, were Swedish-born immigrants who Anglicized their surname). As a child Candice was often referred to as "Charlie McCarthy's Little Sister", which irritated her (Charlie McCarthy being one of her father's dummies). She is also a vegetarian.

Trivia

Born at 9:52pm-PST

First female host of "Saturday Night Live" (1975).

Her father's puppet, Charlie McCarthy, had a bigger bedroom and more clothes than she did as a child.

Auditioned for the role of "Elaine Robinson" in The Graduate (1967).

She was kicked out of the University of Pennsylvania after failing 2 subjects. She said that she failed one of those classes, art, because she simply couldn't get to her 8 am class on time.

2000 - New husband Marshall Rose is a New York real estate magnate.

Is a vegetarian.

She came to Sidney Lumet's attention for The Group (1966) when the director spotted her in a Revlon advertisement hawking lipstick. He thought she was clutching a leopard, though it was really just a leopard print pillow.

Measurements: 33-24-34 (as starlet), 34-25-35 (during "Murphy Brown") (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

In the late 1960s, she was the companion of music producer Terry Melcher. At one point, they leased a house in Bel Air. In 1969, they moved into a house in Malibu, and the house they vacated was leased by Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate. It was in that house that Tate and four other people were murdered by members of the Manson Family. The fact that Melcher had agreed to produce a record for Charles Manson and backed out of the deal led to speculation that Melcher was the intended target of the killers.

Is good friends with actress Christine Kaufmann.

In 1995, after receiving her 5th Emmy Award for her role as Murphy on "Murphy Brown," she declined any future nominations for that role. She received a total of 7 consecutive nominations for the role.
