The most famous 1980s celebrity vanished from public view.

She seemed to have returned.

Raquel Welch made her first public appearance in over two years on Friday when she visited the Beverly Hills building where Heritage Auctions is located.

The 81-year-old actress, who rose to fame as a sex idol in the 1960s, was spotted by photographers wearing a casual attire of a white blouse, black leggings, and platform shoes. She also wore stylish sunglasses and a straw hat.

Fans hadn’t heard or seen anything from Welch since she spoke with the Sunday Post in the UK in early 2019.

Despite her long career in the spotlight and parts in films such as “Bedazzled,” “The Biggest Bundle of Them All,” and “One Million Years B.C.,” the artist told the publication that she prefers to keep a “low profile.”

Despite this, Welch remarked that there are times when it is “good to be noticed.”

“I think it’s far better not to be seen!” she exclaimed abruptly. “I believe that going unseen is preferable.”

“Getting discovered, like any other actor or actress, has been the single most important aspect of my career. I am quite grateful that people are still interested.”

The Golden Globe-winning actress was well-known for both her film roles and her several high-profile romances.

Throughout her marriages to actor Richie Palmer, producer Patrick Curtis, filmmaker André Weinfeld, and first spouse James Westley Welch, her personal life was constantly in the news.

Welch, who was born Jo Raquel Tejada in Chicago, has been single for more than ten years since her divorce from Palmer in 2008.

In an interview in 2011, she commented, “I adore men and I love their company, but I am too independent and self-motivated.”

“I’m open to dating,” she said, “but to be honest, there aren’t that many good-looking individuals my age anymore.”

“I don’t mind traditional male and female roles, but as you can obviously assume, I am a pretty strong-willed woman,” she explained.

“I’m sure a lot of men would regard me as a formidable opponent. They wouldn’t be motivated to handle it, and even if they were, I’m not sure I would be.”
