Long-time love: In August 2020, Derek revealed why she and Corbett had yet to get married. “I think when you start a young family and you’re going to have kids and create this new family tree branch, it’s obviously a wonderful commitment and it’s meaningful,” she explained to Fox News. ; photographed together in 2018
Before meeting her current boyfriend, she thought she would never find love again, having lost her husband John Derek to heart failure in 1998.
However, she explained that when she met Corbett, she felt “just an attraction, a comfort”. He makes me laugh all the time. He is full of life, full of joy.
Bo shared, “I became attracted to him and still am. We take it day to day and I think we’re still here. We’re starting to settle in a bit more, ”she joked.
Although John Derek has directed several of her films – including Tarzan, The Ape Man, and Bolero – it was Blake Edwards who directed 10 that made her a star.
Her side: she felt that “if you start a young family and are going to have children and create this new branch of the family tree, it is obviously a wonderful commitment and it is significant”; seen in February 2020
In the middle of a casting that included Blake’s wife Julie Andrews as well as Dudley Moore, Bo caused a stir by strutting the beach in a swimsuit.
“It was one of those times when a fairy godmother walks in, slaps you on the forehead with her magic wand and changes everything,” Bo muses.
“People say I’m an icon, whatever that means. I wouldn’t call myself that. I don’t take it personally. But I played a role that has certainly become iconic for sure.
John Derek was 30 years older than Bo and fell in love with her when she was 16 while starring in his film Fantasies in Greece.

Although he was married to Linda Evans and had older children than Bo, he started a relationship with her and remained with her in Germany until she was 18.
Once Bo was legally an adult in the United States, he divorced Linda and made Bo his fourth and last wife, according to his obituary in The Independent.
He not only managed her, but also directed her in films such as the romantic comedy Ghosts Can’t Do It, which starred Donald Trump in a Razzie-winning cameo.

Although their films together were not taken seriously, the couple lived in luxury on a ranch until their death at the age of 71.
“I’ve always been a pretty optimistic person, but it was a huge change, a huge loss. The air is simply sucked out of the room when you lose your partner. So I wallowed in there for a while, ”Bo told Fox News.
“I didn’t expect to end up with anyone. Some women want to get back together right away. I did not do it. I remember consciously shaping myself after a few girlfriends that I have [who] are single and lead very full, fantastic lives with their friends and family and the projects they are carrying out. And it gave them happiness.
John Corbett told Today a few years ago that he met Bo after his agent friend Norby Walters set them as Oscar party dates.
“I am grateful for the life I have been given. I feel very good about the decisions I’ve made, ”Bo told Fox News of his career.
“These weren’t always the most successful business decisions when it came to money in the bank, but I had a blast making movies and living my career on my own terms. And this business has been very good for me. And it opened so many doors for me.
