“We always joke that thank God nothing ever happened because now we can remain friends for the rest of our lives,” she said on the Armchair Expert podcast. “As he used to say, ‘You don’t s**t where you eat.’ What he meant by that was the famous story about Moonlighting with Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd.”

“They had sex on the pilot. And then the show got picked up — and then they hated each other. Or David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson [on X-Files]. The same thing happened. And then they hate each other and you’re stuck on a show for seven years together. That’s agony. Life’s too short.”

“You just want to have the crush keep going and going. And that’s what worked,” she noted about their time together. “And also, he’s just a super-awesome human being, and I love him.”
