Love Story costars Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal are reuniting on the Harvard University campus Monday to discuss the 1970 film and their careers since it came out.

Love Story was largely set at Harvard, where O’Neal’s character, the wealthy Oliver Barrett, falls in love with working class Radcliffe College student Jenny. Paying homage to the film, the actors will arrive on the campus in an antique MG convertible similar to the one featured in Love Story.

MacGraw and O’Neal will sit down with journalist Alicia Anstead at the Ivy League college for the conversation that will reflect on their time in Hollywood.

The joint interview partly serves as a promotion of their national tour of stage play Love Letters. Love Letters, which is about a man and a woman who write each other letters and notes over the course of 50 years, will kick off a one-week engagement at the Citi Shubert Theatre in Boston on Tuesday.

It’s amazing,” O’Neal told the Boston Globe about reuniting with McGraw for the play. McGraw chimed in, “It’s comfortable,” to which O’Neal replied, “It’s the best fun there is.”

The Love Letters tour is set to wrap up in June, but there’s talk of O’Neal and McGraw continuing the show. The duo might even take the production to London and Australia.
