Love at first sight on Sunset Boulevard
Max Baer Jr. (best known for his role as "Jethro Bodine" on 'The Beverly Hillbillies') first encountered Joanne Hill in 1965. A billboard featuring her picture on Sunset Boulevard caught his eye, and the rest, as they say, is history. The couple tied the knot in 1966, but unfortunately, their union ended in 1971. The reason? A classic case of conflicting interests - Joanne's focus on her career versus Max's desire to start a family.
A life away from the limelight
Post-divorce, Joanne moved to Beverly Hills and became George Burn's neighbor. Despite being spotted together at various Hollywood events, the nature of their relationship remains undisclosed. Joanne has also kept herself away from social media platforms, choosing to live a life away from the public eye.
Currently residing in Hilton Head, Joanne is often spotted in her vintage outfits at charity events and volunteering at local animal shelters.
Max Baer Jr.: A bachelor once more?
As of 2023, Max Baer Jr.'s relationship status remains unconfirmed. It seems the star of The Beverly Hillbillies has chosen to remain a bachelor, never remarrying after his divorce from Joanne Hill.
