Sally Field Early life and Family
Sally was born to Richard Dryden, an Army officer, and his wife, actress Margaret Field. Her parents divorced in 1950, and her mother later married actor and stuntman Jock Mahoney.
Sally then attended Portola Middle School, followed by Birmingham High School in nearby Van Nuys, CA, where she was also a cheerleader. Her classmates included infamous financier Michael Milken, actress Cindy Williams (of Laverne and Shirley fame) and Michael Ovitz of CAA and Walt Disney Studios fame.
Sally married Steven Craig in 1968. The couple had two sons, Peter Craig, now a novelist, and Eli, now an actor and director. They divorced in 1975. That same year, Sally would become romantically involved with Burt Reynolds, in a whirlwind relationship that would garner much attention (mostly unwanted) from the press and paparazzi for several years, during which time they co-starred in several movies, including Smokey and the Bandit, Smokey and the Bandit II, and The End. The famous couple ended their relationship in 1982. In 1984, Sally then married film producer Alan Greisman. They had one son, Sam. Field and Greisman divorced in 1993.
On October 29, 1988, she and her family survived a crash after their charter plane lost power on takeoff. They all survived, but suffered minor injuries; perhaps partially because the accident, Field has suffered from osteoporosis.
