The staunchly Republican Temple abandoned acting and entered politics in the 1960s. After an unsuccessful bid for Congress, Temple was appointed U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in 1968. She served as the U.S. Chief of Protocol during the Ford and Carter administrations. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Stephen Shugerman/Getty Images)
