Frances said,

"I think it's having different stories to tell each other. Although we have often collaborated on films, we have both had really autonomous careers and so we have always had new things to tell each other."

She even explained that the 21 years she spent raising their son is 'the most exciting part' of the relationship.

Both of them belongs to the movie industry and works with several good-looking artists so jealousy can be the issue between and when asked about that, she said:

“I think people who are not in the film industry always think that would be an issue, But when you work in the industry, you know how these scenes get constructed. It’s make-believe and it’s your job to make it believable.”

She further said:

“I envied the power he had over his career because his work is self-generated whereas in my job you always have to wait around for someone to give you the role”.

Meanwhile, they are looking forward to a new phase in their relationship as their son Pedro is grown up now.
