Judith Bench has been frank about her relationship with Conservative David Mills. Chatting with the journalist of the Domashny Ochag publishing house, the actress admitted that she could not stand the word “partner”. She prefers to call the close man her "boyfriend".
She mused, “I don’t know which word would be better, but“partner”sounds awful. The partner happens to be dancing. Friend - no. Boyfriend - no. The guy is probably the best way?"
The 82-year-old star managed to connect her destiny with David, with whom she began dating in 2010. The man suggested that the actress open a shelter for squirrels at a wildlife conservation center in Surrey. Judith said at the time: “He's not going to propose to me. We just have a good time together, according to our age. Prior to that, the woman's marriage with fellow actor Michael Williams lasted 30 years until his death in 2001. They have one child - daughter Finti.
Commenting on the relationship with David, Bench admitted: “I have a funny friend next to me. We swam one hot summer evening and then had a glass of champagne in the garden. I said, "What a fantasy." But if I had been a romantic nature, perhaps it would not have moved me at all. I take everything to heart. I like to laugh well. A sense of humor is the most attractive quality in a person."
At the moment, the actress is busy filming a new film "Victoria and Abdul", which tells the real story of the relationship between the Queen and one of her employees, Abdul Karim. According to the actress, the ruler had an excellent sense of humor, which was especially evident in her last years spent with a young man.
