Famed playwright and actor Sam Shepard passed away at the age of 73this weekend, and just before his death, his ex partner Jessica Lange spoke of him in an interview.
The 68-year-old actress was with Sam from 1982 to 2009 and they shared two children, Hannah and Samuel.
“I wouldn’t call Sammy easygoing and funny, but everybody has their dark side, and he always does it with a sense of humor,” Jessica told AARP magazine.
Sam spoke of Jessica back in 2010.
“I mean, we have long periods of relative calm,” Sam previously told The Guardian. “We’re definitely an incredible match. But, you know, not without fireworks … although at this point, you know, she’s the only woman I could live with. Who could live with me! What other woman would put up with me? … I’d never met anybody like her. She was astounding. One of the great things about her, aside from her natural beauty, which was remarkable, was her humbleness.”
