The same for the audience. The magical gesture that Aiden performed as “Jenny” in the TV series: Cross of Arms, winking with excitement, will not be forgotten – and all wishes will come true.
Also in the public’s memory to this day: her short chiffon outfit. But: Showing my belly button definitely wasn’t allowed, Barbara Eden said in an interview with BILD in 2018. “It was very careful! Conferences were held to show if my belly button could be shown. The result: a bikini yes. Belly button no.”

The TV series was filmed over 50 years ago. Your positive energy extends to the present.
“The idea of the charming Jenny still comforts me today,” Eden said in an interview with BILD in 2018. “Her spontaneity, but also the naivety with which she saw the world, is good in the dark hours.” She still receives messages from people who struggle with their fate, such as their difficult childhood, and in the TV series Find Solace.
She is 90 years old too Instagram-Profile personly. In it you can see: the beautiful Eden then and now, with fans, friends, her dog, and a lot of humor.
It seems that there is still a lot of Jenny in the TV star.
Happy birthday Barbara!
