Time doesn’t stand still for anyone–not even if you’re really, really famous. These beloved stars of the 1970s have changed a lot in 50 years.

The sunny, funny beauty was a staple of 1970s and 80s comedies. These days, she’s mostly retired–although Goldie did decide to costar in Snatched alongside Amy Schumer. She has been with her longtime partner, Kurt Russell, since the pair met on the set of Overboard. Her daughter, Kate Hudson, looks exactly like she did in the 1970s!

John Travolta

Saturday Night Fever and Grease catapulted John Travolta into superstardom during the 1970s. After a few career missteps, he bounced back thanks to his role in Pulp Fiction. Tragically, he and his wife, Kelly Preston, lost their son in 2009.

The couple is also deeply involved in Scientology, and Travolta is often featured in gossip magazines that speculate about his sexuality.

Faye Dunaway was a major star during the 60s and 70s, earning multiple Oscar nominations. She even picked up an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1978. However, rumors of Faye’s bad behavior on set have swirled for years, and earlier this week she was fired from a one-woman Broadway play about Katharine Hepburn after she allegedly slapped a crew member.

Donny Osmond

Donny and his sister Marie were huge stars in the 60s, thanks to their wholesome image and suburban-friendly pop tunes. In the 1970s, Donny struck out on a solo career and racked up the hits. Although his star has faded considerably by now, he did recently win the first season of The Masked Singer on Fox.

The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, remains best known for her iconic role. Rumor has it that she’s going to be making an appearance in Wonder Woman: 1984! Lynda doesn’t do a huge amount of acting these days, but she’s a popular figure on the comic book convention circuit.

After battling cancer in 2010, Michael Douglas took a brief step back from the spotlight to focus on healing. However, he nabbed a Golden Globe nomination for his work as Liberace in Behind the Candelabra in 2013. He also plays a major role in the Ant-Man movies for Marvel and just picked up a Golden Globe for The Kominsky Method. 

He has been married to Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones since 2000.
