Amy & Ed
Amy Madigan and Ed Harris spill the details of their 35-year-long romance and how it came to be!
“We kind of have a shorthand with one another.”
Sally Field likes former co-stars Ed Harris, 67, and Amy Madigan, 68 — a lot! Still, Sally recently joked that it was “disgusting!” when the duo made moon-eyes at each other during their 1984 movie, Places in the Heart. Ed blushed at Sally’s quip about his and Amy’s on-set romance, but he assured Closer at the Television Academy Emmy Nominee Reception in Beverly Hills on Sept. 15 that “Amy and I had met [years] before that movie. But we did get married while working on it by a justice of the peace in Waxahachie, Texas,” where it filmed. Nearly 35 years later (their anniversary is Nov. 21) Ed and Amy are still going strong. “You just have to keep communicating,” Ed says of their longevity. “Get on with it. Do the work. Otherwise, it gets to be where you start drifting apart.”
