Barbara Bach (born August 27, 1947 in Queens, New York) is a model and actress, most known as the Bond girl from the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. She is married to former Beatle Ringo Starr.
Bach was born Barbara Goldbach to a Jewish American father and an Irish American Catholic mother. When she was 16, Bach left school to become a model, rising to the ranks of top models by the time she reached 17. At 18, she married Augusto Gregorini and they had two children in Italy; one of them is singer-songwriter Francesca Gregorini. Consequently, she had several small roles in Italian films, although in 1975 Bach separated from Augusto and moved back to the United States.
In 1977, Bach's role as Anya Amasova in The Spy Who Loved Me gained her recognition and awareness as an international sex symbol.
British musician Ringo Starr and Bach met on the set of the film Caveman in 1980. They were married on April 27, 1981, just a few weeks after the film's release. Since the mid-1980s, Bach has been inactive as an actress; in recent years, she has accompanied Starr on his tours.
