The pair lived together between Shaw’s beachfront property in Scarborough, Maine and New York City.

In May 2005, the couple bought a penthouse apartment on the upper floor of Beresford that was supposedly previously owned by Rock Hudson. This is no ordinary apartment- it has two Balcones, an elevator to themselves, two bedrooms and an upstairs study. It is supposed to be worth $6 million and overlooks Central Park and The Museum of Natural History. (New York Times)

When asked about love she said; 'Love makes no sense at all. But it's the most powerful and amazing force in the entire universe.' (IMDB)

"Too many women define themselves in terms of a man. Look at me. In my marriages, I was like an amoeba. Part of the problem is that men blossom under the nurturing of a good woman, while women don't often get that benefit from a man. I think of men and women as two different species. Katherine Hepburn said they should live next door and visit each other once in a while. Not a bad idea."  Source: "People Magazine", 12-28-1987

Evans Shaw and Close divorced in August 2015.
