Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg "didn't share much in common politically or legally, but they had many other things in common and important things that we tend to overlook," one of the late justice's sons told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"They liked the same sort of culture," Christopher Scalia, author of a new book of his father's speeches, told "The Joe Pags Show" in an interview.

"They both loved opera, for example, and they even had cameo appearances in opera together."

Scalia's book is "Scalia Speaks: Reflections on Law, Faith, and Life Well Lived." Ginsburg wrote the forward.

The Supreme Court associate justice died in February 2016 at age 78.

Christopher Scalia, an assistant English professor at the University of Virginia, is the fourth of five sons. He also has four sisters.

"They also liked good wine — and they liked good food," Scalia told Pags. "Both of them had spouses who were excellent cooks, so their spouses bonded over that.

"They celebrated New Year's every year together.

"They just focused on what they had in common — and even the things they didn’t have in common.

"As Justice Ginsburg explains in her forward, they helped each other out," Scalia added. "Their working relationship, even though they were supposed to be at odds, they would help each other with their opinions.

"They would give each other advice.

"They would say: 'You know, this part's good, but I think it could be even better if you changed this or that' — helping each other with an opinion that they disagreed with."
