Ellen Burstyn

I came across a clip of EB winning the Tony in 1975 for Same Time Next Year (@ link) and she looked very good especially as I never really think of her as an especially 'attractive' actress. Maybe because she was mostly highly regarded as a very good actress. So I then looked for more clips of her, maybe a talk show interview or something and there's very little, hardly anything. I tried reading her autobiography a few years ago and gave up, but can't remember why...I think I'd 'had enough'. What I do remember is that she had a crazy ex-husband who used to sit in the audience of her B'way show and was so disruptive they had to install a guard and that the whole situation with him spoiled the pleasure of her huge success in the mid '70s. When he eventually died, his parents contacted her and said 'Congratulations, you've won another Oscar!' Point is... I'm posting this because I'd be interested to hear what people think of her/ know about her, also to ask if there are any links to decent interviews.
