ali mcgraw ryan oneal oprah Ali MacGraw, Ryan O'Neal reunite on 'Oprah,' 40 years after their famous 'Love Story'Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal were the rom-com couple of the day in 1970, after their now-famous tearjerker “Love Story” hit the big screen. They reunited on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” Tuesday (Oct. 12) to talk about their experiences making the movie.

Ali tells Oprah she remembers Ryan’s audition and their instant chemistry. “First of all, he’s a great kisser. It’s a combination of somebody who’s incredibley sexy but funny. That’s just electrifying,” says MacGraw.

]]>Ali: “What does that mean, by the way?” Oprah: “I was just going ask you! What does that mean? At the time I was in the 11th grade when I went to see that for the first time, and I was thinking: ‘God, love means never having to say you’re sorry? Really, does it?'” Ali: “You know, a really great actor would have said: ‘Excuse me, what does this mean? I can’t say it.’ And there would have been two or three hours of rewriting this moment. It makes no sense, and I apologize.” Oprah: “I’m so happy to hear you say that. It makes no sense!” Follow Zap2it and Zap2it Andrea on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news. Photo credit: The Oprah Winfrey Show
