Somehow, we’ve come up with the stereotype that people should wait to get married when they’re 26, 27. I don’t even know where that number came from, when I have my aunt and uncle, who have been married for 60 years, and they got married when they were 15 or 16. People are always going to have opinions, but my husband and I knew that it was right for us at our ages and what we’re doing."

(He married 8 times so a mother-in-law expert) But he was a brilliant broadcaster & masterful TV interviewer." yeah yeah it's fine as long as you can get it around and get it inside
The Internet reacts...
Dude. The man just died. Have some class.
Piers Morgan reminding us that Larry King was correct. And confirming that Piers Morgan is a deeply insecure man.
Not surprised he fell out with you, look at you trying to grab 5 minutes of fame through past association. It's always the way with people like you. Bet you had not talked to him in years. Gawd.
You should have just tweeted "Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me."

Bryan Cranston tells the Smartless podcast that he only did ''Breaking Bad'' because Fox cancelled ''Malcolm in the Middle.'' "Fox said, 'Keep the sets up. We might do an eighth season of Malcolm in the Middle', and everyone was like, 'Yeah, that'd be great.' In late April and early May, they called..., and they said, 'Nope, we had a very good pilot season. Thank you guys, you did well. You're on your own.' So we thought, 'Ahh, that's too bad.' Later that month, I get the call to go see a guy called Vince Gilligan... 'He wants to see you about a new project called Breaking Bad'. I read it and I thought, 'Oh my God, this is amazing.' I met with him. He said, 'I want to turn Mr. Chips into Scarface and I think you're the guy to do it.' We shot the pilot in February and March of 2007. So had we got that eighth season of 'Malcolm in the Middle', I would not have been available to shoot that pilot and someone else would be talking to you. It is absolutely my belief, I dogmatically believe this, that a career in our business cannot be fully realised without a healthy dose of luck sprinkled throughout."
