26 minutes agoIt is mid-August, and Jeffrey Tambor is sitting at the kitchen table, wearing a V-neck undershirt, baggy cargo shorts, and flip-flops that reveal toenails painted a tasteful brownish red. “It’s my secret way of still touching her,” he says, gazing at them. “I’m afraid to put her down.
