`I have steak at home, why go out for hamburgers?'

He said, of his wife.

This morning's "Today Show" did a surprisingly sweet and thoughtful piece on Paul and his wife of some-50 years, Joanne Woodward. I won't bore you with their real-life love story that I already know way too much about; but here's the piece if there's any interest.

(As an aside, it was a pretty bleak morning for lady Grice. A thought occured, though.

Occupational hazard of working from home alone, aside from sense of loneliness and isolation: Having no fear of judgment if you find yourself standing in front of the stove making mac & cheese at 9 a.m. Not for later, but for right then. But it’s so cheap and there’s so much left! When I die of gout, those were my final words.)

Amitabh is also a total family man.

Ab Toh Hai Tumse (Amitabh Bachchan & Jaya Bhaduri)
Tere Mere Milan (Amitabh Bachchan & Jaya Bhaduri)
Jaya was a major league actress when Amitabh was a nobody, struggling actor. She quit acting not long after they married. In films they have been together, I think she is better than him. But he is pretty good, always.
