  11. I remember him being asked how come he never strayed ... "When you have fillet steak at home why snack out on hamburgers."

    It was a sensational romance really wasn't it?

  22. They WERE a great couple, weren't they? Putting all the rest of silly, self-absorbed Hollywood to shame. I loved the way they spread out and filtered their wealth into lovely causes, as they loved beyond themselves and were loved back the same.
