At the Nantucket Film Festival tribute to screenwriter Jay Presson Allen, Ali MacGraw (who starred in Allen’s 1980 “Just Tell Me What You Want”) told PEOPLE that fans still approach her to talk about her 1970 movie smash, “Love Story.” Most often, she says, fans of the movie just want to tell her how much they enjoyed it. “And I hear that from people in very remote places. A man in the airport in New Delhi said he loved the movie and that I look like his daughter.” MacGraw, who lives in Santa Fe, says most of her time these days is spent working toward freeing Tibet from the Chinese, saving endangered species and helping rape victims. “They all have to do with the quality of life,” she says of her causes.
