“Married With Children” ended in 1997 after an 11-year run, during which the show broke boundaries in the 1990s and paved the way for future comedies to be extra raunchy and extra, extra funny.
“I’m gonna say something that’s never done much in Hollywood, I’m going to say something nice about my ex-wife,” O’Neill said on the Walk of Fame podium. “I met Katey in 1986. We were both trying out for the parts of Al and Peg Bundy on ‘Married With Children.’ … We grew together as a cast and good friends and we see the whole family is here today. I was there when Katey won the Golden Globe for ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I was proud of her before. I was proud of her then and I’m proud of her today.”
The acclaimed actress said she spent a good part of her younger years trying to calm herself down.
“Then, I became an actor and I found a place for all of that,” she added. “What began as a self conscious flaw, became an asset.”
