Cheryl Ladd, who spent years starring as Kris Munroe on the iconic television series “Charlie’s Angels,” is speaking out this week to reveal how her strong faith in God has helped get her through life.
“It has been all of it,” Ladd, 69, told Fox News. “I knew who I was as a young girl. I would climb up the top of the tree and talk to God all the time. It has been an interesting path – a lot of good, a lot of bumps, a lot of tough, learning moments. He [God] was with me the whole time. He lets us trip ourselves so we remember that he is in charge. I think that is a good thing, especially in our youth! When we aren’t exactly thinking everything through.”
Ladd also said that she is still close friends with her former co-star and fellow angel Jaclyn Smith.
“We see each other all the time,” Ladd said. “I see her in L.A. all the time when I’m there. We have lunch and we hang. We talk all the time on the phone. We ended up being really good friends. Lifelong friends.”
“It’s really interesting because when you do something so specific, so iconic and you are in it when it was huge – it is something you can explain to people, but until you’ve done it, it is different,” she added. “We think back often about how crazy that time was. We had to go into restaurants through the back door. We weren’t prepared for how much people would love the show. It was wonderful, but it was wild.”
Though the past year has been difficult due to COVID-19, Ladd said that she’s been grateful to have the extra time to spend with her grandchildren.
“It is just so much fun,” she said of FaceTime. “I think it’s so great, especially through COVID. We can be with our grandkids, even if they aren’t physically with us. We can laugh, talk and play music. They would show [my husband and I] new dances they were doing. It was a wonderful thing to have, especially during a pandemic.”
“Life is such an amazing gift,” Ladd continued. “Every day, you do learn something. Some things you learn, [some things] you wish you didn’t have to learn. But, sometimes you have astounding moments that make your soul sing. That is all God.”
