Role model Marlo
No, Marlo Thomas, 44, wasn't leading one last ERA cheer. The 5'3", 92-pound actress was gamboling in Central Park between takes of an ABC movie about modern romance, written by co-star Charles Grodin and produced by That Girl herself. Chicago-based hubby Phil Donahue was scheduled to lecture in the Big Apple but canceled when ticket sales never topped 250. Good thing Marlo, who has devoted her energies to narrating TV specials in recent years, is back to being a working actress again.
Jane gets Warholed
Now that husband Tom Hayden, 41, has won the Democratic primary for the California State Assembly, Jane Fonda, 44, is literally cashing in on her famous face to help fund his campaign. She unveiled a 13-color silkscreen of herself, another in the celeb series by Andy Warhol, who donated 100 signed prints to the cause. More than 30 have been sold, at $2,000 per, to such Fonda fans as Jane's father, Henry, Rod McKuen and even Jane herself, who calls her likeness "grownup, glamorous and peaceful."
Harrison at 39
Though ex-Beatle George Harrison rarely appears in public, he and second wife Olivia, 34, partied till dawn at a post-concert bash for Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel at a London jazz club. While S&G revive their '60s act in Europe this summer, Harrison, who recalled All Those Years Ago on his last album, Somewhere in England, will be gardening at his secluded estate along the River Thames. "I don't want to be in the business full-time," Harrison, now 39, said recently. "Most of today's music leaves me shell-shocked."
Gibbs bites the carrot
It's a classic case—he went for the carrot and now he's stuck. Timothy Gibbs, 15, who plays orphan Will Adams on NBC's Father Murphy, signed a seven-year contract with the network before the show's premiere last fall. (The pay is under $100,000 a year, poor lad.) Since then he's had to turn down juicy offers—including TV's Thorn Birds. So while mugging with a pet mount, Silver, near his San Fernando Valley home, Gibbs quipped, "I'm going to rename him Network because he takes the food right out of my mouth."
