Filmmaker Bruce Paltrow died in 2002 and Danner admits she has shied away from finding another partner after spending 33 years with the same man, so she was anxious about locking lips with Elliott in comedy drama I'll See You in My Dreams, in which she plays a widow who falls for a charming suitor.

The 72 year old tells, "I was a little nervous. That was probably the only scene I was a little nervous about... because my husband has been gone for 13 years. I've had a couple of blind dates, but I haven't had a (serious) date and I'm not really shopping for another relationship.

"As June (Squibb) says (in the film), 'When you've had the best, the heck with the rest,' and that's kind of my attitude about it all."
