Age is just a number for Collins and Gibson
Addressing critics who highlight the couple's 32-year age gap, Collins dismisses age as "just a number."
In her recently released memoir, "Behind the Shoulder Pads: Tales I Tell My Friends," she shared their love story, emphasizing that love can find you at any stage in life.
"It's never too late," she asserted.
Their enduring bond is fueled by shared ambitions and a zest for life.
Collins, known for her vitality and enthusiasm, explained, "I was born with a tremendous enthusiasm for life. Life is a gift, and it does not last for a long time."
Her memoir delves into the couple's journey, shedding light on their connection and the secret behind their lasting union.
In the book, Collins candidly discusses her past relationships, acknowledging that breakups happen for various reasons.
Even after a failed engagement with Warren Beatty, she harbors no regrets.
"We were both too young, too selfish, too ambitious," she reflected. The actress, now happily married, sees these experiences as part of life's journey.
While recalling her relationship with Beatty, the actress revealed a poignant moment when, faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Beatty advised her to get an abortion.
The actress agreed, recognizing that they were both unprepared for parenthood at that stage in their lives.
"He was absolutely right," she affirmed.
