And you are Mrs. Reagan because Mr. Reagan loves you with all his heart. Every time Mr. Reagan sees the evening star or blows out the birthday candles or gets the big end of the wishbone he thinks the same wish—a prayer really—that so much happiness will go on and somehow be deserved by him.
It is true sometimes that Mr. Reagan loses his temper and slams a door but that’s because he can’t cry or stamp his foot—(he isn’t really the type.) But mad or glad Mr. Reagan is head over heels in love with Mrs. Reagan and can’t even imagine a world without her—
“Ben and I call each other hubby and wife. I’ve known Ben since I was 12-years-old. Eighteen years of my life I’ve known Ben, and for all of those years he’s been lumped together with me as being my partner in crime, my husband. The same for Ben, he doesn’t go anywhere without people asking about Topanga and I don’t go anywhere without people asking about Cory. There is definitely a part of me that feels like Ben will always be my first husband. That’s just the relationship we have. You know we’re very close. We talk very openly. I think we share a lot of similar characteristics to a couple that’s been together for a long time. We know each other so incredibly well and we love each other and it’s just the best.”
I am as uncomfortable with it as I am talking about it. It’s not a real thing, it’s some kind of cosmic joke that’s going to be revealed soon. I never was considered that way and I think a lot of it has to do with the stigma that attaches to you from film. I think anybody who was in ‘The Notebook’ would be receiving similar comments. It’s just the nature of it. I know from just being a guy and looking at a billboard you’re like: ‘That guy’s not a sex symbol. They’re trying to sell that on us? No way! That’s never gonna stick.’ And then suddenly he’s like a huge deal and you can’t believe it. I used to hate those guys and now I am one.
