Lily Tomlin recalls working with the late Cloris Leachman on “The Beverly Hillbillies” movie



Last Thursday on “The Talk,” Lily Tomlin reacted to the passing of longtime friend and “The Beverly Hillbillies” co-star, Cloris Leachman.

“She was the most extraordinary person. She would come into the make-up room every morning and just regale us with stories. Our mouths would be dropped open, half the time we’d be laughing out loud. You just never knew what she was going to come up with. And she was a great scene partner. When I was rescuing her from a hospital where she had shock treatments, they thought she was crazy, and her hair was sticking up like, just all over the place…I’m dressed as a nurse in disguise, and we’re running down the hall together. And somehow, we got our bags mixed up…and we absolutely improved the whole thing. We had no idea it was going to happen, and we didn’t know it would stay in the movie. It was just a providential bit of comedy that was just really fun to do.” Tomlin adds, “When I heard the news about her, I was just crestfallen. I felt she was going to live forever.”
