24 Vintage Photographs of Cher in the 1980s

It is without a doubt that Cher is in a league of her own, with a decades-spanning musical and acting career. 

With decreasing album sales and a lack of commercially successful singles at the beginning of the eighties, Cher decided to further develop her acting career. In 1982, Cher made her Broadway debut in the play Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean and later starred in its film adaptation. 

Cher earned her first Oscar nomination for her performance as a plant co-worker and Meryl Streep's lesbian roommate in Silkwood (1983). Her next film, Mask (1985), was Cher's first critical and commercial success as a leading actress. Her role in the film also won Cher the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress. In 1987 she subsequently starred in three films: Suspect, The Witches of Eastwick and Moonstruck, the last of which won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Cher revived her musical career in 1987 by recording her eighteenth studio album Cher. Despite facing strong retail and radio airplay resistance upon its release, the album proved to be a commercial success, certified platinum by the RIAA. Her next album, Heart of Stone (1989), was certified triple platinum by the RIAA.
