    Whoa! That's quite the outfit she has on. She lived with Elvis for 5 years? She was married to Bruce Jenner? I'm betting she has some interesting stories to tell.

    Wow. She looks creepy, like her face is so pulled back, any kind of real emotion would make the whole contraption snap. She gives me the heebie-jeebies already.
    Big: You know, Manhattan has a lot of beautiful women.
    Carrie: What an amazing observation!
    Big: But the thing is, after awhile, you just wanna be with the one who makes you laugh.

    Oh, I saw her on an Elvis biography a long time ago...I remember her saying she's the first person Lisa called saying, "Linda, my daddy's dead." So she was married to Bruce Jenner? Maybe she's the one who suggested he have his plastic surgery.

    Well she must certainly take care of herself, with help from her plastic surgeon.

    This article is about the American actress and songwriter. For other famous people named Linda Thompson, see Linda Thompson (disambiguation).

    Linda Diane Thompson (born May 23, 1950 in Memphis, Tennessee) is an American actress and songwriter.

    Linda Thompson won several beauty pageants, including the 1972 "Miss Tennessee-Universe" title. In July of that year she began a relationship with the recently separated Elvis Presley and lived with him at Graceland for four and a half years. A few months after her late 1976 breakup with Presley, she signed on as a regular on the TV series Hee Haw where she performed until 1982.

    In 1981, Thompson married former Olympic Games Gold Medalist, Bruce Jenner with whom she had two children. The marriage ended in 1983 and she appeared in a few motion pictures and made a number of guest appearances on different television series. In 1991 she married composer David Foster. With her new husband, she began writing lyrics for some of his compositions, notably the song "No Explanation" for the 1990 film, Pretty Woman. In 1992 they were nominated for a Grammy Award and an Academy Award for Best Song for their composition of the song "I Have Nothing" sung by Whitney Houston in the 1992 motion picture, The Bodyguard. Thompson wrote the lyrics to "The Power of the Dream", the official song of the 1996 Summer Olympics composed by Foster and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. In 2003, Thompson and her husband won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Music and Lyrics for "The Concert for World Children's Day."

    She is active with her husband in humanitarian causes in the "David Foster Foundation Society."
    Dang, she's older than me?
