She was named Female Star of the Year by the National Association of Theatre Owners in 1973 and the Hollywood Women's Press Club in 1979. A former beauty queen who held the title of Miss West Seattle, Cannon made her television debut in 1958. Over the next decade, she became a common sight on episodic shows while appearing sporadically on Broadway and in B-movies. In 1969, she had her breakthrough film role in the sex comedy Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Cannon was nominated in that category again for Heaven Can Wait (1978), which earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture, and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama for her lead role in Such Good Friends (1971). She also was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film as the producer of Number One (1976), making her the first woman to receive Oscar nominations both in front of and behind the camera. Other films in which Cannon has performed include The Love Machine (1971), Shamus (1973), The Last of Sheila (1973), Child Under a Leaf (1974), Revenge of the Pink Panther (1978), Honeysuckle Rose (1980), Coast to Coast (1980), Deathtrap (1982), Author!

Cannon made her feature directorial debut with 1990's semi-autobiographical drama The End of Innocence, which she also wrote and starred in. From 1997 to 2000 she played a recurring role on the legal series Ally McBeal. Before her career took off, Cannon was married to Cary Grant for three years and gave birth to his only child, daughter Jennifer. Reluctant to discuss the marriage since their 1968 divorce, Cannon turned down publishing deals following Grant's death in 1986. Her long-awaited memoir Dear Cary (2011) became a New York Times Best Seller. In 2022, it was announced that the book would be adapted into a miniseries for ITV with Cannon executive producing. In 1961, Cannon began dating actor Cary Grant, who was 33 years her senior. They married on July 22, 1965 and had one daughter, Jennifer (born February 26, 1966). Cannon filed for divorce in September 1967, and it was finalized on March 21, 1968. Cannon married real estate investor Stanley Fimberg on April 18, 1985. They divorced in 1991. From 1978 to 1979, Cannon and Armand Assante were a steady item in public.
