Experience the Divine: Greatest Hits is a compilation album by American singer Bette Midler, featuring many of her best-known songs. The fourteen track compilation was released on Atlantic Records in 1993.

While several greatest hits albums with Midler had been released in the UK, Continental Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand and Japan throughout the 1970s and 1980s, such as The Best of Bette (1978) and The Best of Bette (1981)—two different compilations with the same title—and Just Hits (1987), this was the first career overview to be released worldwide including the US and Canada, some twenty years after Midler recorded her first studio album for the Atlantic Records label. The album included one new recording, Midler's Emmy Award-winning rendition of 'One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)', sung to retiring talk show host Johnny Carson on the penultimate Tonight Show in May 1992. Experience the Divine: Greatest Hits peaked at #50 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in 1993 and was three years later certified platinum for one million copies sold in the US.

Experience the Divine: Greatest Hits was re-released in Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 1996 with a slightly altered track list, then also including two of Midler's biggest hits which for some reason had been left off the 1993 edition; 'Favorite Waste of Time' and the Rolling Stones cover 'Beast of Burden', both from the 1983 album No Frills. The 1996 edition also included two versions of the US hit single 'To Deserve You', taken from what became Midler's final studio album for Atlantic, 1995's Bette of Roses.

How Old Is Bette Midler Today

In 2015, von Haselberg had a role in the Woody Allen film Irrational Man.[2][3] Allen stated, 'She's wonderful. She came in with a lot of other women that read and she's the spitting image of her [mother] and she was just good... I thought she was so good that I combined her part. There was another part too and when I gave her the role, then I dropped the other character out of the movie and worked it so that she could have a double role, so could appear more frequently 'cause she was impressive… She projects intelligence because she's intelligent.'

Von Haselberg was cast in a pilot for MTV starring Nicole Byer.[4][5] In October 2015, she started shooting The Wizard of Lies for HBO.[5]Equity, featuring Von Haselberg and Anna Gunn, was released in 2015.
