Barbara Bach started modeling at 16, and within a year she was routinely a cover girl. At age 18, she attended the Beatles concert at Shea Stadium in New York, but only to chaperone her younger sister. Bach was not yet a big fan of the Beatles, preferring Aretha Franklin. Still in her late teens, she married an Italian millionaire. While living with him in Rome she began working as an actress, and by the time they were divorced she was more famous for her B-films than for modeling.

In her finest moment as an actress, she played Bond girl Anya Amasova in the 1977 adventure The Spy Who Loved Me, with Roger Moore. She auditioned to be a replacement angel on the original Charlie's Angels, but lost the part to Shelley Hack. She also starred in the comedy Caveman with Ringo Starr and Shelley Long, and married the ex-Beatle after filming. Although she and Starr appeared together in several films, Bach is best remembered for her early work in such low-budget Euroschlock as Il Fiume del grande caimano (The Great Alligator) with Mel Ferrer and L' Umanoide (The Humanoid) with Richard Kiel, and L' Isola degli uomini pesce (Island of the Fishmen) with Joseph Cotten.

Starr and Bach share an estate in Monaco.
