"I always thought the guys that I was with thought it was great that I was married because they knew 'no responsibility here!'," she said. "But when I met Al Pacino and told him about my little deal, he said, 'Well, that's crazy.'"
She said she called her husband to explain how things were different with Pacino.
"I said, 'I'm in love.' He goes, [D'Angelo affects an Italian accent] 'Oh, Beverly, who is it this time?' And I said, 'Well, it's an actor.' He went, 'An actor? No, no, not an actor.' And I said, 'I really love him and we're talking about having kids and he thinks it's crazy that I'm married and now I'm thinking it is too.'"
"He went, 'Oh, that's ridiculous. Who thinks this is crazy, this perfect relationship? Who is this actor?' I said, 'Well, it's Al Pacino.' He goes, 'Al Pacino, he's fantastic. I love him. We divorce!'"
D'Angelo and Salviati went on to have an amicable divorce.
Pacino and the actress had twins Anton and Olivia in 2001. However, the couple split soon after the birth of the children.
"The greatest gift that Al ever gave me was to make me a mother," she told the publication. But, according to People, she now considers Salviati the true love of her life, "it was a great love match."
TooFab recently spoke with D'Angelo about bringing her kids to the premiere of "Violent Night" and what it was liking raising them in Hollywood with Pacino as she took time to be a "devoted mom" -- read our interview above!
