Yet again, she'd been nursing a crush — in this case for the 15 years since she'd starred with him in The Godfather, when they were both involved with other people. Al Pacino was, she says, consumed by two things: And although they soon embarked on an affair, she suspected he viewed her more as someone he could talk to than as a lover. I wanted him to love me.
