She married twice and gave birth to three children before venturing onto the political stage, serving as US ambassador to both Ghana and Czechoslovakia, a US representative to the United Nations and chief of protocol in the administration of President Gerald Ford.

I take that as a no.

I mean, those a fine things, but rather unremarkable as compared to "huge movie star". Must be a bit sad living basically all your life with your greatest achievement behind you.

She did the smart thing - took Hollywood's millions and said adios. Then enjoyed a full life and committed herself to honorable public service. She was never sad at all, by all accounts.

I can only go by myself. I would be pretty depressed if I knew with high certainty that my best accomplishments were behind me.

I don't see it that way. Those are admirable achievements. In fact, being taken seriously enough to even accomplish those later goals was a feat and remarkable in itself, not only as child star, who often disappear, get into substance abuse and die, or commit suicide, but also a woman.
