Wil­liam & Felic­ity

Closer Weekly - - News -

Wil­liam H. Macy and Felic­ity Huff­man on how their pas­sion for act­ing keeps their love strong.

While strik­ing a bal­ance be­tween a happy home life and hec­tic ca­reers can of­ten prove dif­fi­cult for cou­ples, Wil­liam H. Macy and Felic­ity Huff­man find the two nat­u­rally go hand in hand. “We both love act­ing — it’s the only lan­guage that we have,” Wil­liam, 66, ex­plained when Closer caught up with him at the Jan. 29 Screen Ac­tors Guild Awards in LA. He also noted that his rap­port on- and off­screen with his wife of 20 years, Felic­ity, 54, is com­ing in es­pe­cially handy now that she’s pre­par­ing to shoot her new ABC sit­com pi­lot Libby & Mal­colm, co-star­ring Court­ney B. Vance. “We read each other’s scripts; we work to­gether,” said Wil­liam, who raved, “I love my wife!” while re­ceiv­ing a SAG award for Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance by an Ac­tor for his own com­edy se­ries, Shame­less. “It’s all we’ve ever done…and it seems to work.”

“He walks into a room and I go, ‘Ah!’ ”

— Felic­ity

The cou­ple’s daugh­ters, Ge­or­gia and Sofia, are 14 and 16, re­spec­tively. They’ve been hav­ing a great year! “I was so scared of mar­riage,” Felic­ity has ad­mit­ted. That’s why Wil­liam had to pro­pose sev­eral times be­fore they fi­nally wed in 1997.
