Sally Field Reveals Her Friendship With Steven Spielberg Started With A Potential Date
Sally Field revealed how her friendship with director Steven Spielberg started almost fifty years ago.
The 76-year-old Mrs. Doubtfire actress shared about the potential date with Steven Spielberg at the Palm Springs Film Awards where his film The Fabelmans was being honored.
“Somewhere in the ‘70s, I think — he’ll correct me,” Sally said, per THR. “My newly acquired business manager wanted me to meet one of his clients and wanted me to go to Universal for a supposed ‘meeting’ because he thought the two of us would really hit it off,” she said.
“And though we never actually went on a date together, my beloved Steven Spielberg has never left my life. For almost 50 years — is it really? — we have gone through this life that’s been filled with good and bad, the laughter and the angst. He has been my biggest supporter and a constantly welcoming place,” Sally continued.
“I honestly can’t imagine my life without him at this point, but I can’t imagine our country, much less the industry, had Steven Spielberg never held a camera in his hands. His vision, his sense of humor and fun, of terror and entertainment, his humanity and heart has been woven into the whole world’s consciousness,” Sally said.
Sally stars in the upcoming sports comedy 80 for Brady alongside Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, and Rita Moreno.
