The Moonstruck actress gushed about their relationship while appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show earlier this month. "On paper it’s kind of ridiculous but in real life we get along great," she told Clarkson. "He’s fabulous, and I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve. But he’s very kind, he’s very smart. He’s very talented and he’s really funny so, and I think he’s quite handsome," she added. She also said that if she had not met younger men she would never have "had a date" as older men didn’t like her much. "Younger men don’t care if you’re, you know, funny or outrageous and want to do stupid things and you have a strong personality. I’m not giving up my personality for anybody," she said.
