Goodbye: Sally Field Announces Retirement!

Or did she?

November 6th was Sally Field’s 70th birthday, yes 70th. The actress, with a career spanning over 50 years, has recently announced she may be retiring from acting to spend more time with her growing family.

At her birthday party, she was quoted as saying:

I am so very blessed to have such a large and loving family, I’m so grateful for all the support you have each given me over the years. I hope to spend more time with each any every one of you

Later, she was quoted as having a desire to be reducing her workload:

I might just skip out on the next role so I can see everybody more


With a 50 year career, starting with a perky young Sally in the 1960s, to famous roles as Mrs. Gump in Forrest Gump, to a family patriarch in Brothers and Sisters. She couldn’t have hoped for a more storied and successful career.

We here at All This Buzz wish Sally the best in what ever she does in the future.


Field is back on screens this spring in Hello, My Name Is Doris. You can watch the trailer below:

    Once you started with politics, well Sally, that ended it for me.
    Anyone who could back a crock like HRC is beyond me. Do you ever listen to cable news? Benghazi and the folks that lost their lives because they were told to stand down by her? than lied to the families? REALLY
    I’m done with you. RIP

    1. I’m with this Reader, You ARE UNAMERICAN. AND BEINGS YOU ARE RETIRING YOU SHOULD MOVE TO SOME WHERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. If you respected Obama and HIllary and agreed with their Politics, well their is some you are not am American. Good Ridence. Bon Voyage. Hope never to see you again. Trump is compassionate loving man that loves his country. YOU ARE A TRAITOR.

    2. VERY TRUE!!! Sad for all of them

    Sally, I loved you years ago. You made me laugh, smile and feel. But you should keep your errant political opinions to yourself. Is this the REAL Sally Field who gets on TV and supports the blatant obstruction of the President Elect of the United States? Why would you DO such a thing? Was it a contest you lost? Were you PRANKED? Please, go HELP some poor children in Haiti. Some folks who need water in Somalia. Go to the maoutains, for goodness sakes. But please stay out of politics. You SUCK at it.

    Enjoy each decade of your life. Your family hertiage resulted in the discovery of the first Thanksgiving dinner an American family holiday favorite. I am certain you will gain strength and privilege from this knowledge. When you turn 90 you will think back and say 70, I was way to young to retire from acting!

    1. Do you ever talk about sports? Books? Movies? Current events? Are you aware there is a world outside the 3-foot sphere you have constructed around yourself and apparently never see past?It seems like all you do is sit around and whine about &#2#s0;relation2hips&28821; like a teen girl. Seriously. Pick up a book, idiot.

    1. I think you hit a buleslye there fellas!

    2. Irvan

      Just who are you to say Sally is “FIRED”?

  5. Barbara

    Good Bye and Good Luck, get out and stay out with your Leftist opinions.

    1. FO you hater, you need to retire, she has done more good then you probably ever will with your life, you can say” you don’t know me” But I do, just by the blog you wrote alone tells your story enough!

      1. bub

        Your comment should have read “BO, you hater,…”

        And btw, NOBODY knows who the hell BO was, or where the hell he came from, either.

    2. I together with my buddies appeared to be going through the nice suggestions from your web page and then quickly developed an awful suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web site owner for those tips. All the guys happened to be certainly excited to read through all of them and have in effect in truth been making the most of these things. Aptoiceapirn for truly being quite kind and for picking out such terrific resources most people are really desirous to learn about. My personal sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

    I will miss you Sally Field! You are a delight to watch on TV and Film!

    1. Sharon Worsham

      She is more interested in politics. She wants to help smear President Trump. She needs to go to Canada.

    I have always enjoyed Sally Fields acting. She was so genuine in the roles she played. My favorite Sally Fields movie was “Gidget Goes Hawaii.” I watched it in the winter time when I was younger and always wondered about how beautiful Hawaii must be. I use to always say people who live in warm climates must think we are crazy to live in Michigan. I have been blessed to visit Hawaii on a few occasions. It is beautiful, but there is no place like home. Michigan is also a beautiful state. I enjoy the four seasons. I wish Sally Fields the best in retirement, she looks great! Enjoy your life Sally and think about making one more good

    It’s been a pleasure watching you all these years.. Sally, Good Luck.

  9. maquignon

    Sally Fields and Meryl Streep prove that acting ability has NOTHING to do with intelligence!!!!

    1. I wished God hadn’t created so many haters an idiots like yourself, BTW, Is this Trump?

      1. Jaslbird1

        I am so sorry that you have simply missed reality. You have no concept of what goes on outside of your Mom’s basement. Stay there and keep developing into the mushroom you are becoming.

    2. Sharon Worsham

      You can say that again.

  10. richard smith

    I’ve always been a fan of Sally Field. The parts she played over the years were powerful and well acted. So, I say farewell and good luck as you gracefully retire from the big screen and start fully enjoying your growing family.

  11. started following you in the flying nun.
    thanx for many great performances since.

    1. reglerjoeLet’s just say that my comment was “tongue in cheek”.There seem to many websites out there including this one that bring up these negative issues against the fundamentlists. It is getting tims#ore.&e8220;WWJD”

  12. Tom

    Just another actress that won’t be missed

    1. Like someone like you that nobody knows exists?

      1. To&238m#0; Mark and I and our family are blessed to have been in the company of such a beautiful and strong woman. We will cherish the times we spent with you and Amy, and are thankful that we will see her again one day!! We love you… we are praying for you… we are here for you… The Morths

      2. Marty

        Quell you’re hate James. Nobody hates like a liberal. Just look at the protests and violence since Trumps election win, all the evidence anyone needs.

      3. Sharon Worsham

        Shut up.

      4. Bill Pippin

        Are you a troll or what??

    2. It’s a really nice house, and I LOVE your artist room, and I ADORE Opal and LubuA!acoit time you just started to make your own houses. This one is lovely!!! And I always love your family shots. They cheer me up!

  13. ron

    So glad to see you retire. Can’t say what I really think about you because it is not polite.

    1. They should make a law that outlaws stupid people, Our Jails would be full of Trumplers.

      1. That’s the best answer by far! Thanks for cotunibntirg.

    2. That’s a nicely made answer to a chelganling question

  14. DonRS

    I was hoping she was leaving the Country! No such luck!

    1. Then do us all a favor and you take her place.

    2. I meant: " not to say that Andrew DOESN'T ha..qv.&euot; I mean, he's right about many things, like lyrics being a good way in for a lot of people, for instance, to poetry.

  15. robert powell

    allways a clean-vibrant girl no sleazy garbage from her ..a good family kid with a good outlook.EXTREMELY RARE IN GARBAGE-TOWN HOLLYWOOD

    1. That was a really nice an human remark you made, Thank You.

      1. This in’tshigs just the way to kick life into this debate.

  16. Dana

  17. Annie

    I truly truly love Sally Field. I will miss her.

    1. The genius store callde, they’re running out of you.

    2. karen

      me too!! Just b/c we disagree politically is no reason to write someone off completely, friend, family member or beloved actor. We love you Sally. I’ll never forget the key scene in Steel Magnolias!

  18. Ruth

    We don’t like you anymore. I thought you were leaving if Trump was elected President……Well when are you leaving???

  19. Hoping you and your celebrity friends can support your plush lifestyles without our help. Why would you believe we can’t manage to do our own thinking? Speaking for myself, I will NEVER support arrogant, selfish fools such as you. Betcha I’m not alone. Please remember, you need us more than we need you.

  20. John J

    Field went uber-liberal & pushed her political views on the public. She needed to keep acting & her political views separate. Her career ended when she lost her way. WON’T MISS HER..

  21. snowflake-melter

    Loved your acting. Despised your real life view. Same leftist idiot views as the guy who is trolling this article with his dumbass responses to other people’s common sense comments

    He’s sure to lay another turd in response to this comment, because he’s too damn adolescent to resist. I’ll bet a week of his minimum wage salary that he can’t control himself. It’s the nature of the snowflake … it can’t keep from meltinng down.
    LMF-BO-O !!!

  22. Michael J

    I apologize for the unkind remarks regarding your political views. The last time I checked we live in a country defended by the Constitution which allows us to express our preferences the way we feel inclined. I have watched your amazing career from the Flying Nun to Forrest Gump’s mother and beyond and in my opinion you are one of the best. Please continue, even on a limited basis, sharing your gift with all of America. If you choose to retire entirely then I wish you the best. FYI, I retired in 2010 only to return to work in 2016. Yes, you can go back. God Bless!

  23. sara

    I have always loved Sally Field – always doing great movies with intelligence and heart. Thank you lady for being a lady. It is too bad today that there are so many trump followers that refuse to simply listen and use their common sense, but instead reach out with rage and hate to try to crush the human spirit of others. They have the stage right now, but what are they leaving us with to improve mankind?

  24. Anne Hanlon

    Hollywood has left me many years ago these overpaid idiots seem to think they are knownlegable and with their no brain minds come across stupid

  25. Jack Meoff

    I’d fuck her!

  26. Ron

    You were a great entertainer! But, after you got into politics and started spewing crap! You needed to go!

  27. Sally, I have been your fan for years. My favorite shows/movies: The Flying Nun, Not Without My Daughter, Forrest Gump, Mrs. Doubtfire, and most of all, Places In The Heart. You are an amazing actress and I have always thought your eyes are like “windows to your soul”. When you play the part of a loving mother, a determined wife, etc. and the camera is focused on your eyes and the expression on your face, you make it easy for me to forget that I am only watching a movie. But I so want to believe the part you are playing is who you really are. I am not the only one who holds that belief. My favorite scene for the movie, Places In The Heart, is the very last scene…friends and enemies, peacefully coming together and taking communion in a church service. Sally, you are getting ready to retire and I want to encourage you to rethink how you want to be remembered when you are no longer making movies. There are many ways that you can be a catalyst for change and still retain your integrity. Your current behavior concerning your political stance is not becoming of you. What legacy do you wish to leave for your grandchildren and your great grandchildren.

  28. Tracy

    I truly Love Sally Fields. She’s more Like a fun personable next door neighbor. Very Fun and Easy going manner. Hats off to her. Will miss her unbelievably.

  29. Irvan

    All of the comments are redundant. Sally, you will be missed by an awful lot of people, me in included ……Irvan.
