Shepherd returned with good reviews for her work in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver (1976).

According to Shepherd, Scorsese had requested a "Cybill Shepherd type" for the role.

She sued and ultimately she and Playboy reached an out-of-court settlement, setting a precedent regarding public figures.

Also during the filming of The Last Picture Show, Shepherd began an affair with Bogdanovich that would last on and off for eight years.

She quickly made a name for herself as a curvy 'real woman', which was a departure from the trend at the time of Twiggy-type waifs.

This led to regular work as a magazine cover girl, and it was a 1970 Glamour magazine cover that caught the eye of Polly Platt, the screenwriter and film producer who was then the wife of film director Peter Bogdanovich.

A year later, Shepherd was cast as Maddie Hayes in ABC's Moonlighting (1985-1989), which became the role that would define her career.

The producers knew that her role depended on having chemistry with her co-star, and she was involved in the selection of Bruce Willis.

Directed by Elaine May, it was a critical and box office hit, showing off comedic talents.
