WASHINGTON, D.C - With over 38 million readers, AARP The Magazine, has become North America's largest circulation magazine. In the new issue of ARRP The Magazine, Roseanne Barr and John Goodman discuss returning to their iconic starring roles – after two decades. "I really appreciate the fact that AARP didn't ask me to do their nude centerfold this issue," deadpans Barr. She lives in Hawaii with her partner of 15 years, and doesn't fight or argue much. "We learned that we need that energy for things like climbing stairs, chewing and getting off the toilet."
Goodman has given up alcohol and lost 100 pounds. He has received critical acclaim for a number of roles in television and motion pictures, including The West Wing, The Artist and a frequent host of Saturday Night Live. Goodman says, "I used to play harmonica and sing a little bit. But after I got sober, I realized that I actually have no talent."
Roseanne's return to ABC premieres March 27 with the original cast. "It's like being home again," Barr says. "Yeah," says Goodman, "I think we know what's really important now—lunch."
