Jaclyn Smith

Both Jaclyn Smith and her "Charlie's Angels" co-star Kate Jackson have battled breast cancer. Smith, who was diagnosed following her annual mammogram, encourages all women to get annual screenings. "I really don't understand women who are in denial, who don't want to go for a mammogram," she told Woman's Day. "I think it's stupidity. Sorry. I have no patience for that."
