It's the combination of her dumb, ill-considered answers with the fact that she's clearly so full of herself. Dim and haughty and yeah, goo-goo eyes at everybody.

Caught her on Tattletales the other day and she bitched about not hearing a question because her rooting section was too noisy. Missing the question allowed another celeb to win the game, and at the end of the show she announced that she was going to "file a protest." So a sore loser as well

Initial release: March 1, 1981
Director: Gus Trikonis
Starring: Don Johnson; Stephanie Zimbalist; Ann Dusenberry; Rick Lenz
Music by: Allyn Ferguson
Distributed by: NBC, Sony Pictures Television

Speaking of director Gus Trikonis, He began his career as an actor and dancer, notably appearing in the hugely successful 1961 film West Side Story as Indio, one of the "Sharks",[1] as well as dancing with Debbie Reynolds and Grover Dale to the frantic "He's My Friend" in 1964's The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
...Trikonis was married to actress Goldie Hawn from 1969 to 1976; he was her first husband and they have the same birthday. His sister is Gina Trikonis, an actress who also appeared in West Side Story, as Graziella, Riff's girlfriend.[3]
Way to go, Gus! (Hope he wasn't too bad, Goldie.)

He wrote the song "Sally", from the 1976 album Born to Die, as an ode to their relationship. Wonder how it compares to "Rosanna"? Is there a thread for songs about actresses?

Acclaimed novelist and director of 92 in the Shade (1975) Thomas McGuane was married to Margot Kidder in the 1970s. Earlier in the '70s he had had an affair with Elizabeth Ashley.

Anna Karina (born Hanne Karin Bayer;[1][2] 22 September 1940 – 14 December 2019)[3] was a Danish-French film avant garde actress, director, writer, and singer. She was French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard's collaborator in the 1960s

...In 1972, she set up a production company, Raska, for her directorial debut, Living Together (Vivre ensemble, 1973), in which she also acted. The film screened in the Critics’ Week lineup at the 26th Cannes Film Festival.[6]She later wrote and acted in Last Song (1987)(directed by her last husband, Dennis Berry, about whom more presently) Karina wrote, directed and starred in Victoria (2008), a musical road movie filmed in Montreal and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Quebec. The lead character, played by Karina, has amnesia.[14] Richard Kuipers praised it in Variety as "a pleasant gambol through the backwoods of Quebec."[31].

Music and writing
Karina maintained a singing career.[26] At the end of the 1960s, she scored a major hit with "Sous le soleil exactement" and "Roller Girl" by Serge Gainsbourg. Both songs are from the TV musical comedy Anna (1967), by the film director Pierre Koralnik, in which she sings seven songs alongside Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Brialy. Karina subsequently recorded an album, Une histoire d'amour, with Philippe Katerine, which was followed by a concert tour. In 2005, she released Chansons de films, a collection of songs sung in movies.

Karina wrote four novels: Vivre ensemble (1973), Golden City (1983), On n'achète pas le soleil (1988), and Jusqu'au bout du hasard (1998).[7]

While working together on Le Petit Soldat, Karina and Godard began a relationship and married in 1961.[32] Eventually, Karina served as a cinematic muse to Godard, appearing in eight of his films, including Alphaville, Bande à part, and Pierrot le Fou, during their five-year marriage and after. Karina liked being the muse. "How could I not be honoured?" she told Xan Brooks of The Guardian in 2016. "Maybe it's too much, it sounds so pompous. But of course I’m always very touched to hear people say that. Because Jean-Luc gave me a gift to play all of those parts. It was like Pygmalion, you know? I was Eliza Doolittle and he was the teacher." At this, she briefly channels Henry Higgins. "By Jove," she says. "I think she's got it."[10]

The couple became, according to The Independent, "one of the most celebrated pairings of the 1960s."[26] A writer for Filmmaker magazine called their work "arguably the most influential body of work in the history of cinema."[33]

Despite the critical success, their relationship behind the scenes was described as tumultuous; they fought on film sets, Karina fell ill several times, and Godard was often absent without explanation.[23][18][34] One Godard film from this period which does not feature Karina, Contempt (1963), is said to be based on their difficult relationship.[16] The couple divorced in 1965.[18]

After divorcing Godard, Karina remarried three times; she was married to French actors Pierre Fabre from 1968 to 1974 and Daniel Duval from 1978 to 1981, and to American film director Dennis Berry from 1982 until her death.[18][36]

Karina died at the age of 79 on Saturday, 14 December 2019, at a hospital in Paris. According to her agent, Laurent Balandras, the cause of death was cancer.[14] However, her husband, Dennis Berry, said that the cause was not cancer, but a complication following a muscular rupture.[37]

Mylène van der Mersch was married to a Dutch filmmaker named François Weyergans, who assisted Robert Bresson and directed a documentary about him in the mid-60's. Bresson apparently proposed to Anne Wiazemsky while they worked on Au Hazard, Balthazar; though she didn't accept, at some point he married van der Mersch (who appears in the film under the name Mylène Weyergans). She went on to be his assistant director for the rest of his life.

Mirren lived with Northern Irish actor Liam Neeson during the early 1980s; they met while working on Excalibur (1981). When interviewed by James Lipton for Inside the Actors Studio, Neeson said Mirren was instrumental in him getting an agent.

Mirren began dating American director Taylor Hackford in 1986. They were married on 31 December 1997 at the Ardersier Parish Church near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.[104] They met on the set of White Nights (1985). It is her first marriage and his third (he has two children from his previous marriages). She has no children, stating she has "no maternal instinct whatsoever".[105]

Mirren's autobiography, In the Frame: My Life in Words and Pictures, was published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in September 2007. Reviewing for The Stage, John Thaxter wrote: "Sumptuously illustrated, at first sight it looks like another of those photo albums of the stars. But between the pictures there are almost 200 pages of densely printed text, an unusually frank story of her private and professional life, mainly in the theatre, the words clearly Mirren's own, delivered with forthright candour."[106]

Oh yeah, scrolled past mention of somebody involved with a Redd Krosser, and reminded me of Sofia Coppola dating RK's Steven MacDonald (wiki re their Third Eye: The naked masked woman on the cover of the album is Sofia Coppola.[7][8]) Otherwise:

n 1992, Coppola met director Spike Jonze; they married in 1999 and divorced in 2003. In an official statement, Coppola's publicist explained that the divorce decision was reached "with sadness". It is widely believed that the main character's husband in Lost in Translation is based on Jonze, as Coppola stated after the film's release, "There are elements of Spike there, elements of experiences."[86][87]

From 2003 to 2005 Coppola dated filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. They have remained friends since their separation.[88]

Coppola married musician Thomas Mars on August 27, 2011, at Palazzo Margherita in Bernalda, Italy. They met while producing the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides.[89] They have two daughters: Romy (born November 28, 2006), whose name is an homage to Coppola's brother Roman,[90][91] and Cosima (born May 2010).[citation needed]


Thomas Pablo Croquet (born 21 November 1976), known as Thomas Mars, is a French musician and the lead singer of the French indie pop band Phoenix.

About to bust up in here like Kool-Aid Man with Ron Dante and Lana Turner, but her Ron Dante wasn't _the_ Ron Dante.

This post is maybe the most perfect post ever, at least by my lights.

ABBA was going to write a song about those two men, but they changed the title at the last minute to "Andante, Andante".

This is as good a time as any to bring up Lana Turner's steamy affair with Kool-Aid Man.

Soon to be made into a major Hollywood Oliver Stone/Quentin Tarantino/Paul Thomas Anderson co-production, The Real Kool-Aid Killers.

Not both actors - you could argue neither were - but the one that always surprises me is George Lazenby and Pam Shriver.

Stumbled across this one today while watching Pam in her job as Wimbledon commentator.

Also, she had three kids with Lazenby in her 40s (and he in his 60s)!

Debbie Harry and Penn Jillette dated according to Wikipedia.

I'm betting Debbie likes to keep that one quiet.

If she wanted to keep that one quiet, she would have dated Teller.

two months pass...

Susan Hanson aka Miss Diane from Crossroads was briefly married to Tommy Vance and much longer to The Move’s Carl Wayne.

I did a double take and thought that said Carol Wayne. Who apparently was married to Burt Sugarman, producer of Celebrity Sweepstakes AND The Midnight Special along with some other shows, and who later married Mary Hart, who he is still married to.

(xp) I knew about Carl Wayne, they were like the glamorous celebrity couple of the West Midlands, also Carl Wayne appeared on Crossroads a few times.
