Single and happy in her 70s

Sally Field commented on her ‘single lady’ status in an interview with People:

If I knew anyone I wanted to be with, I would hope I would have the gumption to bang on his door. I just don’t know who that is.

The actress added that she feels really happy without a husband in her 70s.

I am totally fulfilled. That doesn’t mean I would rule anything out, but I wouldn’t dress up and go roaming the streets looking for it.

Sally added that her 3 sons have always been her major priority. In a throwback interview with Oprah Winfrey, the actress confessed she was always busy as a working mom, doing a million of things at a time as a mother of 3 boys.

Sally explained:

I had Peter, my first, at 22; Eli, my second, shortly after; and Sam when I was 40. So I had a kid in college, another at home being a rascal, and one just being born.

As for getting married for the third time, the star confessed:

I love the idea of having the love of my life beside me holding my hand. But I don’t have that right now, so I just have to know that I’m just fine as I am.
