Top Celebrity Soulmates
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman
A shining example of a Hollywood power couple who prefers a quiet life away from the glitz and glam (and manages to stay out of the tabloids in the process), indie actor William H. Macy and "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman have been married since 1997. The duo met when she was an acting student at the Atlantic Theater Company where he was a teacher and co-founder, and they dated for 15 years before tying the knot. They are parents to two young daughters.
In an interview with More Magazine, Huffman spoke about her marriage: "Being in a showbiz marriage is like anything else. It's like any other marriage--you sort of stumble along and reconnect and lose each other and reconnect again. She adds, "But every time Bill Macy walks into the room, my heart still jumps. That is true to this day."
Macy has expressed similar heart-fluttering feelings about his wife and her role on "Housewives." In an interview with Parade Magazine he said, "...I think [Huffman's] the sexiest on that show. What is sexy? It's hard to put it into words. The way she carries herself. And she keeps in really great shape. She's got the kind of body that makes me melt. She's cut. She's strong and lithe and capable. I love that."
The couple also has the honor of a Stephen Colbert-created nickname, Filliam H. Muffman, normally reserved for more, tabloid-y and scandal-prone couples like Brangelina and TomKat.
