Sometimes people have a hard time understanding what a happy relationship between two people who obvs think the other is awesome looks like.
We think this is one great (and holy bananas, so freaking hilarious) example.
“His kindness and his sense of humor were probably the main things that attracted me. I met him when I was 24 and we’ve been together ever since. I went on so few dates in my life before I was married, but it was kind of love at first sight for my husband and me.
It was very easy and affectionate from the beginning, and there was none of that no-calling-back or game-playing. We didn’t get married until I was 31, but we knew early on that it was something we wanted to do; it was just a matter of us living in the same city again. Jeff was in Chicago and I’d moved to New York [for SNL], but there was never any question about us being together: I was very lucky in that sense.”
On the morning of Spencer Tracy’s funeral, a slender woman with striking, angular cheekbones drove up to the mortuary where the body of the great screen actor lay.
There was no one to be seen – just an empty hearse. Driving on, she found an attendant. ‘Is anyone else coming?’ she asked. ‘No,’ he replied.
‘In that case, may I help you?’ she asked. ‘Why not?’ he said. And so, with the help of two others, they gently eased the coffin into the hearse and closed the door.
When the vehicle finally moved off, the woman, famed the world over as the actress Katharine Hepburn, got back into her Chrysler and followed it on its six-mile journey through the streets of Los Angeles. [x]
