The Trick To Maintaining A Long And Successful Marriage, From Alan Alda (VIDEO)

When I asked Alan Alda how he and his wife have maintained a long and successful marriage in the spotlight, he joked "The trick is to move out of Hollywood!" When he appeared on Mondays With Marlo this week, Alan stressed that he and his wife, Arlene, are always rooting for one another. They give each other confidence, and are truly happy when the other succeeds.

Also, be sure to watch Alan's new PBS broadcast, "Brains on Trial," on Wednesday, Sept. 18th at 10pm for a truly fascinating look at neuroscience in the courtroom.

See below for more on Alan's work in science and his legendary career:
