I don’t care too much about celebrity couples, the flings and breakups and and marriages and babies. I’m far too cynical for all that: there’s so much smoke and mirrors going on in Hollywood that half that stuff is publicist B.S. anyway.
But I read the article in this week’s New York Times Magazine about “Friends With Kids” director/star Jennifer Westfeldt and her co-star/boyfriend, a little actor you may have heard of named Jon Hamm. They both sound like normal people who are bewildered by all scrutiny on them just because they’re famous and they’ve carried on a happy-sounding, healthy-sounding relationship for 14 years. How the hell do they do it? And how can I steal their secrets?
