Veteran comedy writer and producer Mel Brooks has spoken out about the death in June 2005 of wife Anne Bancroft, confessing every day without her is “very hard”.
The Hollywood couple were married for 40 years before actress Bancroft died of cancer and The Producers mastermind admits he’s struggling to cope with his grief.
“We were together for so long. And I mean together, you know, a couple, a marriage, two people who loved to be with each other,” he said. “When you’re so close to someone, for so long, it is very hard when they’re gone. So many memories, so many places I go and I’m wondering, what would Anne think of this?”
Last week, Brooks announced plans to stage The Producers in Las Vegas in January with David Hasselhoff in the role of gay theatre director Roger DeBris.
Brooks is also set to arrive later this month in London for a charity event which aims to raise more than £100,000 for Leukaemia Research.
