“Lincoln” star SALLY FIELD made a startling confession to a gathering of fans: Four score and seven years ago, admits “Missus Lincoln,” she had a heart-thumping crush on director STEVEN SPIELBERG and flirted furiously – but sadly, they never formed a union because he had “other fish to fry!”
Back when the Hollywood heavyweights were young upstarts on the Universal lot, Sally – sizzle-hot in movies and TV – eyeballed Spielberg and was instantly smitten, so she had their managers arrange a getting-to-know-you meeting.
Steven showed up hoping for a directing job, but quickly discovered that work was not the agenda when lovestruck Sally kept staring at him through big, dreamy eyes.
Recalled the bubbly star: “He didn’t get work, but he liked me!!”
(Really, Sally…He really, really liked you ….??)
