Before I met Gena, I was a bachelor going out and torturing people. I think that's good for young people. When I saw her, that was it! The first time I saw her, I was with an actor, John Ericson, and I said, "That's the girl I'm going to marry.Gena y John se casaron el 19 de marzo de 1954. Tuvieron tres hijos: Nick, Alexandra y Zoe. Y estuvieron juntos hasta la muerte de él, el 3 de febrero de 1989, a 30 años del estreno de Faces (1959), su opera prima que este año cumple medio siglo de existencia.
From my point of view, if I was going to give up my precious self to a woman, she was going to have to love me unconditionally. I kept Gena under constant scrutiny, I was enormously jealous, filled with suspicion about other men and with the terror that those suspicions might be correct, She wouldn't put up with that, And finally I relaxed.
It was a hard struggle to convince Gena. She and I have friction in terms of lifestyle and taste. We agree in taste on absolutely nothing. She thinks opposite to anything I could ever conceive!
¿Qué más decir? Nada. No queda más que contemplar a Gena.
