The iconic lady met her future life-partner at Williamstown Theatre Festival in the summer of 1983. She saw Jim reading a pile of books about the Moscow art theater. He seemed very intellectual and cute to her. So, she asked him to dance but, he said no. After completely mortifying Sigourney, he revealed he was kidding and would love to dance with her.
