Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Lily Tomlin, 73, has spent 42 years with her partner Jane Wagner, but the Supreme Court's recent rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8 may have inspired the "Admission' actress to take the plunge.

"We're thinking maybe we'll get married," Tomlin told E! News' Marc Malkin at the The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Pre-Emmy Performers Peer Group reception Monday night.

Tomlin said she didn't think she'd be able to get married in her lifetime, but she's happy she has the opportunity now.

"You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it."

But don't expect a traditional wedding from the 73-year-old funny lady.

"No rings, no bridal dresses," she said. "Maybe we'll be dressed like chickens."

Though Tomlin has said she was never officially in the closet, Tomlin came out during a 2000 interview with a New York TV show called Gay USA.

"I’m not going to make a big national case of it which is what, really, everybody would like to do, or some people," she said at the time.

In 2008, she said: "Everybody in the industry was certainly aware of my sexuality and of Jane... In interviews I always reference Jane and talk about Jane, but they don’t always write about it.”
