Ethan stated in an interview, "One person works, the other person doesn't. Well, then somebody's always out of town. Then I'm living in a hotel room taking care of my kids while you're off on a film set six hours a day doing what you love. Do that for nine months and see what a good mood you're in. I don't know if it's just too hard to be married to a woman that wants to be a movie star. I know that she has that right to want that."
