All movie stars of a certain age remain young in our eyes, for they still live in the golden age of vintage movies. It’s impossible to believe that the vital, still- beautiful Eva Marie Saint is now 86.
“And no Botox!” she tells me, laughing good-naturedly.
The restaurant where we meet says a lot about her. Sprazzo, which is found, eventually, on a nondescript block of Westwood Boulevard in Los Angeles, is her unstarry neighborhood hangout. She lives nearby with her husband, the director Jeffrey Hayden, and weekends are spent at their Santa Barbara beach house.
