Discreet when it comes to intimacy, Ney Latorraca, 78, made a rare public declaration of love to her husband, actor Edi Botelho.. The artist listed some characteristics of his partner, with whom he has been dating for more than two decades.
“More than 20 years ago I met a great person, namely Edi Botelho, my partner. His greatest quality is his intelligence. That’s the main thing, along with his affection, love, respect and quick wit,” he told Gshow.
The veteran also made a point of highlighting the ease of the relationship between them. “A person who knows verbs, life treats me very well. It’s good to come home and have someone who loves you, who makes you feel good, who is healthy. I admire his integrity and the way he looks at me, I think that’s beautiful.”
In the interview, Ney also said that talking about his past makes him emotional. “When I started commenting on my stories, I was very moved. I talk about people I love, parents, teachers, soap operas, movies… Every time I bring up a topic like this, it moves me. Nobody is made of iron, are they?” the artist emphasized.
The actor who has had a career spanning 60 years is proud of his career, mostly because he knows he’s loved and respected by the public and his close friends. He doesn’t even think about quitting work. “Not retired yet. When I say I don’t want it anymore, that’s all lip service. I want to keep going,” he said.
