(Newser) – Balthazar Getty is finally talking about that infamous fling with Sienna Miller. Getty’s wife, it turns out, was pretty darn understanding—“understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try,” he tells Harper’s Bazaar. “Here's the bottom line: It was a very challenging time for everybody involved. But I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work," he says, adding that in a way, "I feel like we're better than we've ever been."

His wife Rosetta adds, "I'm open to talking about it because I believe we go through things in a public way to help other people get through it. I'd love to talk about it more with people when I'm clearer about it. I'm going to have to explain this to my daughters one day. I chose not to act from ego because I just felt like it would be too crushing for my children."
