Barbara Eden had her fun donning her classic “I Dream of Jeannie” outfit for the Life Ball over the weekend, but don’t expect that crop top and those harem pants to stick around much longer. The 78-year-old television icon says she now plans to retire the costume once again.
“It was very strange, but fun,” Eden tells Entertainment Tonight of appearing at the Life Ball. “I think the genie outfit was a onetime thing. It was for a very good cause and I’m happy I did it but I think it’s time to be put in its box.”
During the appearance, Eden introduced a new master for her beloved character: President Bill Clinton. She also treated those in attendance at the event to Jeannie’s signature wink. The Life Ball raises money to promote awareness for HIV and AIDS.
