Congratulations are in order for legendary actress/comedienne Lily Tomlin and her partner Jane Wagner, as the couple recently tied the knot, People reports.
After 42 years together, which is a long time (I mean a long time) for anyone in Hollywood, Tomlin, 74, and Wagner, 78 said “I do” at a private ceremony in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve. A rep for the couple told the entertainment magazine, “They're very happy.”
This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Last August, Tomlin told E! News that she and Wagner were thinking about getting married after the Supreme Court ruled against the Defense of Marriage Act and Prop 8. Tomlin said, "We're thinking maybe we'll get married. You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very, very happy about it."
Tomlin, who’s been around the film and TV world for quite some time now, is known for her roles on ‘NCIS,’ ‘Malibu Country,’ ‘Web Therapy,’ ‘Laugh-In,’ and ‘Murphy Brown,’ to name a few. In addition, she has also collaborated with Wagner on many projects, including Tomlin’s Tony-winning one-woman show ‘The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.’
Reportedly, the recently hitched couple first met when Tomlin was in search of someone to help her with her famously wicked child character Edith Ann (from ‘Laugh-In’).
