‘The Talk’: Cheryl Hines says ‘I'll always love Larry’ regarding on and off romance on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’
On Thursday’s episode of the Daytime Emmy-winning CBS talk show ‘The Talk’, co-hosts Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, rapper Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Marie Osmond were visited by Cheryl Ruth Hines.
The 54-year-old American actress, director and comedian, who plays the role of Larry David's wife/ex-wife Cheryl on HBO's Emmy-winning comedy series ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, spoke about the show and more.
First, she spoke about game nights with her family. Married to environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr., (Hines is also related to the Shriver family through him) the games usually turn into a Kennedy versus Shriver event. “It gets so competitive that somebody ended up in the emergency room,” revealed Hines.
She further said, “We play running charades. And one time when we were playing it, the clue-giver was at the top of a staircase, which I don’t advise -- so people have to run up the stairs to get the clue. If you’re going up with say, one of the 25-year-old guys that are big and will elbow you out. Anyway, one of my friends Gayle ended up with a broken ankle.”
On the topic of directing Sunday's episode of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ -- her first time directing an episode of the series -- Hines said, “Well, the crew was amazing. They're great. Not that the cast isn't. But the cast was a little more hit and miss sometimes, especially Larry [David]. Larry has such a clear vision of what he wants to do. So, sometimes if you go in and say, ‘Hey, why don't you try this time with a little more attitude,’ and he’ll be like, ‘Hmmm, I don't think so’.”
Laughing along with the co-hosts, Hines added, “Honestly, they were all really, really great. We have an amazing cast with Jeff [Garlin] and Susie [Essman] and Ted Danson.”
In its tenth season right now, ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ saw Larry sort of rekindle his romance with ex-wife Cheryl, Hines’ character. On the topic of getting back together with Larry, Hines said, “I love Larry. That's all I can say. I will always love Larry... We are sort of an off and on, will they or won't they. But I’m with Ted now… I did have a little rebound sex.”
'The Talk' airs Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. PT.
