Kyle chandler connie britton dating
Connie Britton bumps into one friend after another on the patio of a café in Silver Lake, CA.Her sleeveless red-and-white print dress and patent-leather flats look a notch more sophisticated than anything Tami Taylor, Connie's so-real-you're-sure-you-know-her high school principal on NBC's Friday Night Lights, would wear.But the friendly ease, the traces of slow Southern vowels (Connie grew up in Virginia), the steady eye contact, and the deliberate thoughtfulness are Tami through and through. These days, on FNL, Connie, 42, and costar Kyle Chandler, who plays her husband, bring to life one of TV's most enviable marriages.
I don't know, I think mostly it just doesn't feel like 40; I'm still getting used to the idea.When REDBOOK first asked me to do this article, I was really excited about it. But that being said, when I do really think about it, there's a calmness now, a relief even. There's something wonderful and tumultuous about the 30s.And then I was like, "But wait, I'm the 40-year-old?! We're trying to establish ourselves, discover who we are in relationships and careers.I have many friends in their 30s, and I think, I remember struggling with that. I think we probably fared better than most, because we were young and didn't have kids — but divorce is hard. Right after Brothers Mc Mullen, I came out to Los Angeles and I got the role in Spin City.That doesn't mean I have everything figured out, but somehow the pressure has eased. Now what I really want to do is just enjoy my life and fill the moments with living, with people I love, things I enjoy, and work that inspires me. A definite highlight was doing The Brothers Mc Mullen. That was a really incredible time; the cast was so closely knit, and we just adore each other like family.
On Friday Night Lights,you're a school principal and mom — the grown-up. In the past I'd always felt like "the girl" in the show or the movie. Shooting that movie was such a joy — and then we wound up winning the Sundance Film Festival. It happens once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime. But my parents' being ill was also a big part of my 30s, unfortunately.
