I’m much happier on my own,” she said on Wednesday (Aug 31.) “I can spend as much time with somebody as I want to spend, but I’m not looking to be with somebody forever or live with someone.

Working on stage for some time, Goldberg went to Germany in 1979 and remained there for a couple of years, working in different theaters. She has been in three different married relationships and her other affairs before marriage are also discussed in public.

“I’m the round peg, and marriage is the square hole. “I thought if I made a structure to life that way, but I would feel more like everyone else,” she said. I got this very strange and wonderful child out of it.
