A 23 year marriage in Hollywood is pretty rare!
Well......she is a really good actress.
WOW!!! Interesting couple, along with their exes! I guess it's nice to see people have their loves, breakups, then new loves, and not seem to have any messy aftermaths. They've ALL moved on with their new partners, being together for many years, and seemingly without resentment. That's different!
The Coen brothers have a great sense of humor.
Its a piece of metal, nothing more nothing less...bestowing special significance to it and paying tens of thousands of dollars for it is EXACTLY what the jewelry companies want you to do. If you buy in, joke is on you.
I love jewelry. My wedding and engagement rings belonged to my husband's first wife's mother. They are beautiful and while they didn't cost him a penny to buy when we got engaged, he has since surpassed himself with other jewelry. We also got married in a park and I wore a black cocktail dress and our Husky/Mal cross and Weimaraner, were both there. A marriage is about the people in it, not the trappings.
Yahoo, leave the lady alone.
After my husband proposed to me, we decided to go shopping for a ring. We found we could not afford the diamonds at the jewelry store; so, we opted for pawn shops; but, lucked into a guy who had proposed to his girlfriend who had turned him down. He had a jeweler make a custom ring with diamonds and it was beautiful. He sold it to us for $600 and it was worth $3,000, that was 31 years ago. I am still wearing the ring and would never want another.
When my late husband proposed to me, he gave me an engagement ring with a diamond in the middle and three smaller diamonds on either side of that. It was a beautiful ring and I loved it. He passed away, unexpectedly, 18 months after we married. I was devastated. I wore the engagement ring, and the wedding ring for awhile after his passing. I eventually met another wonderful man. When we started talking about marriage I asked if would be comfortable if we re-used the diamonds from the engagement ring my first husband gave to me in a new setting. My current engagement ring has the solitary diamond on it. My wedding band has the 6 smaller diamonds on it. I know this is just a possession, but it is absolutely priceless to me. It is a testament to being able to pick myself up from a horrible loss, refusing to be defined by that loss, and moving forward with my life, while honoring my first husband. I think my first husband would be proud of me. I am in awe of my current husband and his selflessness in all of this. It takes a truly strong person to marry a widow.
Frances McDormand is right. She's entitled to privacy. She's against over-sharing, which so many celebrities do. Then they complain that the press is hounding them. Frances is right. Limit exposure of personal info!!
