Personal Quote:

[on husband George C. Scott] He's all things to me: husband, lover, daddy, child. He's not a violent person at all; he's the farthest thing from a harsh person. And he drinks much less now than he used to. We are so different in many ways, but yet it's uncanny how alike we are. We have very similar emotional needs.
