In the month of February,
my mind has been turning to great love stories…
There’s not much I can say about Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. Married for 50 years, and ended only by Paul’s death in 2008, they were an amazing couple that set the gold standard for Hollywood romances. At the time of Paul’s death, it was the longest lasting marriage between two working actors. They were so in love and it shows in almost every photo of them.
As actors, passions ran hot and cold:
“I’m all in favor of a good screaming free-for-all every two or three months. It clears the air, gets rid of old grievances and generally makes for a pleasant relationship. Joanne has a habit of rationalizing, and when she starts that, that’s when I turn ugly! But when she tells me what she instinctively feels, I pay very close attention.”
