Ed Burns Says Christy Is "A Great Mother"

Christy Turlington and Ed Burns – parents to Grace, 6, and Finn, 4 – are set make waves during New York’s Tribeca Film Festival. Ed’s film Nice Guy Johnny debuts on April 23 and Christy’s film No Woman No Cry premieres on April 24.

The Brothers McMullen star talked to OK! about his “sweet” wife who encourages him to follow his dreams, and how he dines out with his lovely wife every night.

These days just to be able to go out to dinner without the kids – that’s a highlight. I love eating in a different restaurant every night,” Ed says. “That’s what I like to take advantage of. There’s so many. There’s a great little place called Max’s on Duane Street in Tribeca. Best lasagna in the city.”

Ed went on to say that Christy has always encouraged him “to not give up my dream.”

“I’ve had temptations over the years to go and direct a studio romantic comedy, and she’s said ‘just stick to what you do, who cares if it’s small?’ When someone has your back where it relates to your dreams, that’s invaluable.”

He continues to gush about his supermodel wife.

“She’s really nice to me,” he says. “She’s sweet — a great mother.”
