What's your favorite room in the house?
I like them all. Some are stuffed to the gills, but I always spend a lot of time [in the main living room]. It’s all very comfortable. We have a TV in the other room, but we’re not big watchers. My husband likes old movies, and I’m a late-night political junkie. I find it hideous and fascinating, what’s going on in the world.
Do you have a favorite movie?
There’s a few I’ve seen in my day that I like. I love Gigi.
What about some of the classics, likeCasablanca or any of Audrey Hepburn’s films?
Oh, I loved Casablanca and Sabrina.
That was the first film for which she worked with Givenchy.
Yes, such beautiful clothes. And what’s the one she did with Fred Astaire?
Oh, of course. I have to say if there was anyone who influenced me in the movies, it was Rosalind Russell. She fascinated me. I saw her when she was in the original Auntie Mame on Broadway, and she wore some pretty fabulous clothes then.
