    "It depends on my mood," she joked. "Because it's about the person.”

    “Sometimes you meet somebody who is younger than you and… Look, it would be perfect if everybody was well matched and well put together, but they're not,” she continued. “And you find it where you find it, and it may last a long time, or it may not."

    "I went out with a younger dude, and he said, 'I can't believe this.' I said, 'What are you talking about?' He said, 'I did not know that Paul McCartney had another band.'”

    “And you kind of go, 'The Beatles? You've never heard of the Beatles?' 'No!'" she laughed.

    "So you have to know when you're going younger, there's a lot of information that you have to impart,” Goldberg continued. “And sometimes it's tiring.”

    “But then there's the other way, where you're like, 'Yeah, you're younger, but you look good! Yeah, you're alright.' So you never know."
