The Oscar winner, once divorced and now happily ensconced in a live-in relationship with photographer Bryan Randall, has been a huge star for almost 25 years—meaning, she's been fielding questions about her personal life for just about that long.By now she's sat through interviews at every stage of the romance game, through the ups and the downs, when it was real and when it was just a passing rumor, during the honeymoon phase and then in the thick of the postmortem after it all went wrong.He brought out everything in me that was good, that was bad, that was suppressed," she told Barbara Walters in 1996, explaining how she had always held people at arm's length prior to dating Donovan. And knowing him was the greatest gift to myself and to my personality—and to my work, in sort of opening the door."The actress shot down Walters' suggestion that perhaps it was her fame surpassing Donovan's that helped bring about the end. Because two good, honest people, just because it doesn't work doesn't mean they can't stay friends..doesn't make anybody the bad guy.
She revealed to in 1996 that her first-ever boyfriend's initials were G. "I'm not saying go out and sleep with them," she clarified to . I don't need to find a man to progress as a human being. And if I happen to outgrow him, or he outgrows me, that's what happens.
"I'm just saying go out and have a conversation and know that they find you attractive and go, 'Okay, I'm not the piece of trash that I thought I was two days ago.' Allow yourself a week or two to eat bonbons and be depressed but then make your friends take you out. I've never been in a place that I couldn't get out of.
