When each person individually is learning how to be fulfilled, whether it be through other friendships, through work, through creativity,” she said at the time. “When you’re fulfilled as a human being, then you’re not just relying on your spouse to give you what it is that you need, which I think is sort of a tendency with a lot of long-term relationships.”

King went on to praise her “best friend” for his dedication to taking care of their family. “Ultimately, my husband is my best friend and at the same time my lover, the father of my children, my favorite human in the whole world,” she added. “And so when you come from a place of fullness, then you’re sharing from a place that’s really sexy and fun and free.”

The exes met on the set of Newman’s film Fanboys in 2005. Ten years later, King admitted it was hard not to get too distracted by the filmmaker while on the job.
