29 Celebrities Who Ruled the 1970s. The ‘70s were such an influential time, especially for celebrities that rose to popularity during this decade. Literally, everyone remembers when Mary Tyler Moore hosted The Mary Tyler Moore Show in 1970s while wearing a pair of pants. Now, that wouldn't be such a big deal, but back then, it was freaking huge. Pants were invented before then and some brave women wore them, but it wasn’t the norm. Pants were reserved for men. However, Mary Tyler Moore, being a huge celeb, went on TV wearing her pants, and it introduced a new fashion trend for women. Pants were everywhere after!
Of course, there were other celebs that had a lot going on, too. The ‘70s was a happening time! Great music came out during this era, and one of the greatest music duos (and top celebrity couples ever) had a break up around this time. Plus, a huge movie star got her start in movies during this decade. Namely, in a little film called Taxi Driver. Can you guess who we're talking about?
