William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman have been married for 21 years, and the spark between them is still very much aflame. The Shameless actor recently sat down for an interview with Willie Geist to talk about his career, and he couldn’t help but gush over his wife.
“Our marriage is sort of a fairy tale marriage,” William said. “I loved her the second I saw her.”
The couple met in the 1980s when Felicity was one of William’s students at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City, and they’ve both confessed that it was “love at first sight.” They dated on and off for 15 years before getting engaged and the rest was history! Their acting careers are what brought them together, so it only makes sense that its still very relevant in their relationship.
“We talk about show biz a lot, we give each other notes,” William said. “It’s not something everyone should try. She can be tough, I can be tough, too, but we met in the theater and that’s really at the core of our relationship.”
William and Felicity have two beautiful teenage daughters and are seriously one of the most inspiring powerful couples in Hollywood. Read on to see the Today interview, which will air Jan. 27, and photos of William and Felicity throughout the years.
