I love playing Chekhov. That’s the hardest; that’s why I love it most.

We had a relationship that lasted 44 years. Herbert and I lived together 10 years before we were married. He always gave me a little heart for whatever anniversary.

Working with Brando was fun. It was like a tennis match. We played unbelievably well together.
