When an Obit Makes You Smile

From an obituary, “Jake LaMotta, ‘Raging Bull’ of boxing, dies at 95” by Matt Schudel in the Washington Post:

Mr. LaMotta was married six times, most memorably to his second wife, Beverly Thailer, who was better known as Vikki and was played by Cathy Moriarty in the film “Raging Bull.”

They were married in 1946, when Vikki was 16. At age 51, she appeared in a nude pictorial in Playboy, prompting a predictable joke from Mr. LaMotta: “She always complained she had nothing to wear. I never believed her until I saw her in Playboy.”
