SHARE FERVOR COMES NATURALLY FOR `SEINFELD’ TV SPOUSES

People recognize Estelle Harris when she goes grocery shopping, but they're not always sure from where.

Harris, who plays George Costanza's mom on "Seinfeld," says it doesn't take them long to figure it out."At the supermarket, they'll come up and say, `Are you George's mother?' When I open my mouth, they know," the 5-foot-3 actress says in People magazine's Aug. 28 edition.

Jason Alexander, who plays George, said his real mom and his TV mom have a lot in common.

"They're both little ladies, they're both redheads and they both have this fervor for life," he said.

Jerry Stiller, who plays George's father, shares that fervor with his sitcom spouse.

"We play our scenes like opera," he says. "With bravado and screaming and hollering."
