Sally Kirkland unveils the unfiltered reality that kindled her Hollywood trajectory: her 'obsession' with none other than the legendary singer, Bob Dylan.

Sally Kirkland exposes the core of her journey, admitting, "I was obsessed, Oh God yeah. He is the reason I am single and is definitely the love of my life."

This revelation peels back the layers of Kirkland's storied career, revealing a narrative that resonates with cinematic intrigue. 

From an enamored waitress with starry-eyed aspirations to an accomplished actress with an enduring legacy, Sally's trajectory resonates with a narrative of passion, dedication, and an unexpected love that continues to burn bright.

This enchanting saga began over six decades ago, when Kirkland was a budding model diligently serving tables in the bustling heart of New York City. 

Her ascent through the ranks was swift, soon finding herself a part of Andy Warhol's avant-garde collective, The Factory, and deeply immersed in the city's cutting-edge theater scene. 

"I fell in love with him the second I saw him perform on stage. I was 22 at the time. I was working as a waitress at Café Figaro in New York," Kirkland reminisces, her voice carrying the weight of years gone by.

"Bob was singing at venues around Greenwich Village with Joan Baez. The two were romantically linked before he became married to his first wife Sara Lownds in 1965."
