Candice Bergen has had a lengthy career on TV, in film and on stage – she was on Broadway as recently as last year. But for many her name remains synonymous with her smart, tough TV sitcom character Murphy Brown, a role for which Bergen won five Emmys. The character mirrored some parts of Bergen’s own life: Becoming a mother later than her peers, balancing relationships and parenting with a demanding, high-profile job.

Actress Candice Bergen joins Diane for a conversation about her career, marriage and love.
