L.B.: But you’ve always surrounded yourself with originals. Look at the photos in this house: Jack Nicholson, Stanley Kubrick, Mia Farrow. And, of course, Ali MacGraw.
R.E.: Ali was one of the most original people I’ve ever met. Everyone knew it. She could wear a safety pin as a ring and it would be fashionable. There was a time when every woman in the country wanted to be her and every man wanted to be with her.
