Beverly D’Angelosays her husband stepped aside in the 1990s when she told him she had fallen in love with Al Pacino.

The “Christmas Vacation” actress explained that she and Italian duke Lorenzo Salviati eloped in the early 1980s but had an understanding that they could go off and have their own fun, “but if there were any crises or anything, we’d come back together,” she told People magazine.

“But when I met Al Pacino and told him about my little deal, he said, ‘Well, that’s crazy,'” she recalled.
