And Now for Someone Completely Different: Phyllis Diller
But I don't think that's the case with Phyllis Diller. At 93, the ground-breaking comic is still kicking. She's got some strong opinions and a valuable, simple point of view. When I asked how she'd like to be remembered, she said, "For being funny." And then she revised her answer. "Well, I should say being kind. I am a kind person. I'm kind to everybody. I treat everybody the same and I'm proud of that. In fact, that's my religion."
In Hollywood, that's a rarity. It was a joy to sit down with Diller for Out magazine. You can read the story here.
