She said: “Like almost everyone’s first impression of you, it was on the television. I remember the first thing I thought of you was, ‘A beautiful woman who has extraordinary timing is almost impossible to find.’

“You allowed yourself to look foolish, heartbroken, clumsy, like an idiot. I think that’s why everyone feels so comfortable in your presence.”
