Rita Moreno on 'The Talk'Rita Moreno is what Tracy Jordan would call an "EGOT," having won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony in her career, which started when she lent her voice to Spanish language versions of English language films at age 11. She is now 79, and has had her share of romantic involvements in Hollywood, which she detailed Friday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS).

As the hosts tossed out names to her, she gave descriptions of her former co-stars, flings, and lovers. Morgan Freeman was "monumental and so sexy." Jack Nicholson was a "dirty, dirty boy." She dated Marlon Brando for more than six years, but went mum on details about him. She did try to make Brando jealous at one point by dating Elvis Presley, whom she called "beautiful but boring."

According to Moreno, the ploy worked, and "it made Marlon cah-razy," which impressed the audience and the hosts. "You are a spicy little thing, Rita Moreno," said Holly Robinson Peete.

NBCJimmy Fallon recalled Morgan Freeman's prior visit to 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) where Freeman indicated he wanted to spend the winter on a boat. Freeman admitted that he only got to sail two days, Christmas and New Year's, but that "it was fantastic."

Fallon then hinted rather gratuitously for Freeman to invite him to go sailing with him, and offered to take on a job on the boat.

"Can you cook?" Freeman asked.

Fallon said he could, but then asked, "Do you have a microwave on the boat?"

Morgan Freeman Trips Out 'The View' Ladies With Discussion of Time (VIDEO)

Morgan Freeman discusses time on 'The View'The conversation got more philosophical than usual Monday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC), when Morgan Freeman and Whoopi Goldberg got into a discussion about the origins of time. Freeman is hosting a new show on the Science Channel called 'Through the Wormhole,' which tackles mysterious scientific quandaries and the human experience.

Goldberg mentioned that she and Freeman had both played God onscreen as a preface to her question about whether time came before the Big Bang. "I don't think time existed until we said it existed," said Freeman. "There is no reason for time, beyond us."

Every culture, going back to the Mayans, has its own calendar and concept of time, noted the ever-philosophical Joy Behar. Goldberg offered a comic theory that time was invented because "people are always late." Tomorrow on 'The View,' be sure to tune in for a discussion about quantum physics and Einstein's theory of relativity. Just kidding.

Sidney Poitier, 'The AFI Life Achievement Honoring Morgan Freeman'Considering the event was called 'The AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Morgan Freeman' (Sun., 9PM ET on TV Land), no one would have faulted the guest of honor for clapping himself on the back a little bit. After all, it was his night and he'd certainly earned an award honoring his life and career. But Morgan Freeman didn't do that.

Instead, he shared the spotlight with a man he considers a trailblazer in his own right. "Seems like the world's upside down when you're here in the audience watching me and I'm up here on stage getting an award," Freeman said to Sidney Poitier, who was looking on proudly.

"In my life, I've shamelessly tried to pattern it after yours," Freeman said. "To walk down the trail you blazed my friend. That you are here means that you are proud of me. And I'm proud of that."

Streisand and Freeman among 2008 Kennedy Center Honorees

Streisand concert Kennedy ctrWhen I read the release today announcing the artists who will receive the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors -- actress/singer/director Barbra Streisand, actor Morgan Freeman, singer George Jones, choreographer Twyla Tharp, and musicians Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who -- my first reaction was, "It's about time!"

That was mostly about Barbra Streisand finally being named. Streisand, who's been recognized with every major show business award (two Oscars, multiple Emmys and Grammys, a special Tony, Peabody awards, an AFI, more Golden Globes and any other performer, and lots more) has been overdue for this one. It's been a glaring omission in her resume. Of course, the catch with the Kennedy Center is that you have to be there to get it.
