"It's absolutely wonderful to live with him. He has a great brain. A certifiably great brain. He's just the most wonderful and generous person. He's always my first reader. I show him my work when I believe that I am absolutely finished. But I don't show him my work in progress - at least I don't think it's in progress. We once wrote a screenplay together which, like most screenplays, was never made. … And I performed in his play, "The Designated Mourner," one of the great thrills of my life."

But, Wallace, who loves working with children in films, doesn't share any children with his partner!
