cute couple alert

Daria Halprin and Dennis Hopper.

The former Mrs. Hopper came up on Alec Baldwin’s podcast this week when Alec’s guest Dick Cavett mentioned that his interview with Daria and Mark Frechette on his ABC show was among the worst of his career. Only Cavett doesn’t recall either of their names and refers to them (accurately) as “whoever the lout was who was the male lead in the movie Zabriskie Point and his non-verbal girlfriend”.

Their appearance on Cavett has been discussed here in the past and remains pretty entertaining and is worth a look if only to ponder that ill-fitting dress that Halprin is wearing. Check this out for more from Cavett and his interview with the Zabriskie Point stars. It’s particularly great when he tells Mark Frechette to fuck off posthumously.
