Some sweet Riv stories from the Summer of ‘93:

Moments later he lives up to his on-the-set rep as a ladies’ man when a friend of Samantha Mathis’s arrives sporting a badly dyed hairdo. “I’m blonde now,” she says shyly. River, pretending not to notice, croons, “You look beeyooutiful”

Later, my wife, Louise, would tell me that River had been very sweet to her friend Carrie, who was there on the junket with us. In those days, Carrie was a bit overweight, but when he first met her, River looked at her for a long moment and then said with great intensity, “You are so beautiful!” Carrie would never forget that
