CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Actors Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal have come to the Harvard University campus to reminisce about their 1970 classic film "Love Story" as they prepare for a Boston stop on the national tour of the play "Love Letters."
Both actors said in a discussion Monday the movie has special meaning to them considering where life has taken each of them since it made them household names.
The 74-year-old O'Neal noted cancer, like in the movie, has played a big part in his real life, including his own personal battle with leukemia.
Seventy-six-year-old MacGraw said being back on campus brought back wonderful memories that few of her subsequent experiences in film ever captured.
Both admitted they had a crush on each other during filming on Harvard's campus and had not seen the movie in many years.
