Of her recent roles, Danner said "Lately, I'm doing a lot of grandmothers, which is fine. I just want to keep working. I have no worry or pride about the age thing."
Danner is promoting her newest movie, "Hello, I Must Be Going," in which she plays a "mother having to deal with her daughter coming back to live with them," a role she says she loved because "she is so three-dimensional."
Danner got personal when she started talking about her late husband, Bruce Paltrow, who died five years ago of oral cancer. Their daughter, Gwyneth, will co-produce the fundraising event, Stand Up For Cancer, on September 11.
When asked if she was open to finding new love today, Danner answered, "No I don't think so. It would be nice to have somebody to spend some time with," she said candidly and continued, "but when you've had the best ... that's it."
And while Danner claims she doesn't have just one favorite Coldplay song -- Gwyneth Paltrow is married to the band's frontman, Chris Martin -- she did divulge, "Well, he wrote 'Fix You' for Gwyneth because Bruce had just died. Chris didn't get to meet Bruce ... he wrote that for Gwyneth, for Bruce."
