Wow! We can't get over how incredible Bo Derek looked in her date night out with boyfriend John Corbett. See the stunning photo of the couple. Bo Derek and John Corbett have been together for 15 years, which is an hands ; we still have barbecues with friends a couple times a week. Bo Derek and John Corbett have been together for 15 years without ever walking down the aisle, but the couple insisted they don't need rings.
I have a lot of friends that get divorces. It becomes this whole thing. He does, however, have the answer as to what makes a lasting relationship, revealing the secret is just enjoy being together. They did, however, have two children together. Following their split, Bonham Carter spoke with Red out about her previous partner, saying, "Our relationship was always somewhat special, and I think it'll always remain special.
We did find each other. And really, the mark of a successful relationship shouldn't be whether you're there forever after. Sometimes you're not meant to be forever together. Sometimes you have to come to terms with the fact that that was it. But that was a gift, a massive gift. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. She discussed this in an interview with The Edit, saying, "But marriage? I'd rather never have been married than been divorced a few times.
Not that there's anything wrong with divorce, but I don't think I could do it if that was a possibility. When your parents are madly in love for 45 years, your standards are really high. But I've been happily with someone for quite a while now. We don't want any more toasters, we never want our families to meet, that'd be terrible. Once you have children, I just think, why not? And despite having several high-profile relationships, including with Jimmy Kimmel and Michael Sheen, Silverman has no intention to be married.
Actually, when previously seeing a report that she was married, it annoyed her. Mainly it was -- it was -- it was when they got so personal with John and our relationship.
It had nothing to do with the movie. And they'd write about scene that don't even take place in the movies. They just made them up. Like in "Tarzan," they -- one of the -- I can't remember who it was. A big reviewer said that we did the plane crash so badly. There's no plane crash in our film. I mean, there isn't one.
That was in "Tarzan Has Boy" or something, another Tarzan movie.

So they're reviewing an old movie they knew we were remaking, they just had the wrong one. Those things really were unfair, really made me mad.
I've really enjoyed it. I host a documentary series for AMC, and it's all about the history of Hollywood fashion and style and its influence in fashion. Oh, you discuss fashion through the years, how it changed. Through the years, so it's all the old movie clips, interviews with, you know, a lot of people that made -- made fashion history. It doesn't seem that important, but it really does influence our lives.
And I never realized how much influence fashion had -- I mean, Hollywood had on fashion to begin with. Elizabeth Taylor has reinvented herself and her image time and time again.
The results have often helped redefine modern fashion. She would help create the ultrahip look of the "swinging '60s. We're back with Bo Derek. It's fair to ask.
Why didn't you capitalize on your career when you really were hot after -- I mean, you were hot after " There were a lot of offers. You know, it's kind of fun to turn down money too. And I think that I got from You're a little weird, Bo. With the horses, with the whole approach to life.
It's fun to turn down money? There's something -- that I got from John, though, and my father in my family is the same way.
I mean, we really had a sense of fun, and John had this thing about money that you must have prostituted himself somehow if you had lots of it.
And it was just a lot more fun to stay at the ranch, ride my horses, or go make our own little independent films. So you were -- no regrets over not capitalizing on it? It was your own decision, you could have And even the money -- it was outrageous money, outrageous. So it was completely unreal to me and where I came from in life. Did your town down anything you shouldn't have? And so there's no regrets at all? Do you get calls now?
I do, not as many, but I do. My opportunities are still vast and fantastic. You could work all the time if you wanted to? Doing both movies and miniseries on television, right? As I said, it's not as easy as it was. And all of these young executives, you know, they don't even -- they're babies. What's it like to deal with them? You go in to meet one of the year-old suits.
I feel like a dinosaur, like an absolute dinosaur. I remember when I was doing that scene with "Tommy Boy," coming out in the bathing suit. And it was my first day's work and I was very nervous. And there were these young kids, like college-aged kids standing over on the side and they were sort of in my eye line.
And I was feeling a little nervous. And I said, "You know, do you think they could move? And how do they treat you? Sort of like motherly? No, not quite motherly. But they're definitely a different generation, you know? You're wearing a very interesting piece, and I have to ask you about it. Let me get a closeup of this, because it's John made me this years ago, and it's out of bone. And it's a picture frame. And you have a picture in there of Of my -- of my One of your horses.
It's upside down, yes. He made it for you, John? He was very talented. He made saddles and boots. He would do thing like that, huh? Do you miss him? Yes, all the time. But I am not the kind to dwell on things that I have no control over.
So I think right away, I just pick myself up and got on with life. I mean, for me I'm very black and white. We're going to take some calls after the break. You did work with Rob Lowe, did you not? Yes, I did on "Tommy Boy. And now he's kind of resurrected his career and "West Wing" has brought him back. He's had some problems. I'm so happy for him. He's become a good friend, too, he and his wife, Sheryl. And so I'm really happy for them. And tell me about your new film, "Frozen With Fear.
Ah, yes, yes, yes. You forgot you made this? No, I was very serious on this picture. No, it was a film -- but it was called something else. Oh, they changed the title. I suppose this is the film made in Canada in December and that this is the new title.
What was the working title? How would I put those two together? Who's in it with you? Stephen Shellen and Wayne Rogers. And it's coming -- oh, Wayne! He's a good guy. And do you know when it's coming out?
So we're both surprised at this Oh, I haven't seen this! She's not in the living room. She's not in here either. Kath, put those down. You two won't get away with this.Bo Derek, still a screen beauty
Get away with what? What is this conspiracy that you insist on seeing.? You stay right there. The earring proves it. I never saw it before. The first one I found in Charles's dry cleaning. But it's not mine. It fell out of your purse. Charles is the one who found it. He picked it up off the floor. Don't listen to anything she says. She's out of her mind. I am not out of mind. We're back with Bo Derek, one of the few people that you only have to say the first name.
Let's take some calls for Bo Derek. If you'd like to talk with her, just call right in. I am a huge fan. I think you're absolutely beautiful, inside and out. And my question to you is, how do you manage to stay so entirely beautiful? What's your beauty regimen? I don't really have one. No -- I don't go in the sun anymore.
I had a whole lifetime exposure to sun before I was But that's about it. And I hate to exercise, so I don't do much of that. And I have a good metabolism. And I try to just stay active and go outdoors as much as possible. I mean, and I'd rather clean house than go to the gym, so I keep myself busy.
Do you have a special skin preparations? Do you at night take an hour and a half before you go to sleep? Creams and all that? This is just it? Your mother looked like this, too?
Yes, my mother and my father. One look at Bo would have a lot of guys grinning, but inshe had to teach Tarzan, the apeman, how to smile. Let me show you how to smile. Oh, you think I am going to hurt you? There's no way I could hurt you. Now, don't stop me. That was my first big production.
A young man named Miles O'Keefe. I lost my husband John when I was 49 last year by a heart attack also, and I am inspired by you and admire how you're going on. Recently I saw you on a morning talk show which they showed clip of you and John. When they asked him that if you became no longer beautiful, would he stay with you?
And he didn't answer. And I was a little offended by that question for you, and I wondered how you felt about it. Well, if you had heard the rest of his answer -- he was ridiculously honest. I mean, you said I'm honest.

He was honest -- sometimes it was painful. He was being honest, and I would have been shocked if he said anything else. The rest of his answer was that he didn't know whether he would still love me. He didn't know whether I would be the same person, because maybe part of who I am is because of what I look like, the way people have responded to me throughout my life and things like that.
So the answer was quite long. You weren't hurt by the answer? No, I knew him. I knew he was that way. What do you think? What do I think what? If you lost your beauty, would he have stayed?
I really don't know. He -- and would I be the same person? I've had a very blessed life. I've had nothing to do with it.
It just kept coming to me. So would I be the same person? I have been very lucky. I think I haven't had a lot of bitterness and some of the painful experiences that people have had. We know about the pluses of, obviously, being beautiful.
What are the minuses? I guess if you are really concerned about people -- I mean, I am blond, too, on top of it. If you're brunette, you're treated a little differently.
I am naturally blond. So that is -- also has an association with being stupid. I've always been fine with my intelligence, whatever it is, and I am able to do what I want to do, and I have enough to carry me throughout life. So I haven't been paranoid about that. When you look in the mirror, do you know you're very pretty.
I know my nose is straight. I know I have good days and bad days. But I know at the same time, if this was years ago, I would have been considered scrawny and unattractive. It's fashionable right now. Rembrandt wouldn't have painted you. Hello, how are you? This is for Bo. Bo this is Nancy Gunther Your old junior high art teacher. You taught her art in -- what school was that?
In Steve Wright Junior High. My husband taught her science. Yes, two of my good subjects. No, I wanted just to tell you we have just been so proud of you as a human being, what you have done with your life, and I got so angry in those years when they were accusing you of -- and ridiculing you.
And I knew that you were a bright person and a sensitive girl, and she was mature beyond her years and just as beautiful at 14 as she is now. She's just -- I'm so proud of her. Oh, you're so kind. What kind of student was she? She was a good student. She was mature -- believe it or not -- and I don't know if she remembers this or not -- but she was one of the best drawers with a pencil. No, you have the wrong person. No, I do not. And do you remember helping in the yearbook?
We had to sort out all the pictures. But I -- as you know, I was absent a lot. If surf was up, I didn't go to school. You were a real California kid, weren't you? I mean, if surf was up, you didn't go to school? And you know, it was a time when it wasn't safe to hitchhike, but we did it a lot. Didn't you date in high school?
I was very athletic, very into sports and so dating took a lot of time away from that, and I just -- not very much. Thanks for calling, teach. What high school did you go to? Well, I didn't finish, but I went to Narbaun ph. You quit high school. Yes, but I met John and went off to Greece to make a film, and then we lived in Europe for years, so I got a fabulous education. Aside from his death, what was the toughest period of your life?
You're going to tell me none? I -- and I am very, very much The answer is none?
