Sally Field and Julia Louis-Dreyfus are getting candid about motherhood and marriage.

On the season premiere of the Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus podcast, Field, 77, admitted, “I was never really good at picking a partner for myself.”

The two-time Oscar winner, who was married to Steve Craig from 1968 to 1975 and to Alan Greisman from 1984 to 1994, said the men in her life “were just not a good match.”

When Louis-Dreyfus, 63, asked her if she had “any interest in getting married again in your life,” Field laughed. 

“I can’t imagine,” the Flying Nun star responded. “It would certainly all depend on meeting somebody I wanted to spend more than 37 seconds with.”

She added, “And I can't imagine that either! So I don't know.”

Field, who shares two elder sons, Peter and Eli, with Craig, and youngest son Sam with Greisman, said some of her past relationships included what Louis-Dreyfus called a “red flag.” 

“Several people that I was dating, or around, would say, ‘Why can't you treat me the way you treat your sons?’ ‘Uh, because you're not my son!’” recalled the 80 for Brady star.

“I've just never been good at picking a person, a partner, to be with who would be loving and know me and not want to change me and also be challenging to me,” she added.

Louis-Dreyfus, who shares sons Henry and Charlie with husband Brad Hall, also asked Field whether having kids was “an opportunity to almost re-parent yourself.” The host added that parenting was “a life saver” for herself.

“Certainly as time went on, I was mothering myself,” shared Field. “But I was so young. I was just 23 [becoming a mother].”

Of her eldest son Peter, she continued, “There was something in me that felt so fiercely about him that I felt, ‘If I can take care of him, I can take care of myself. And goddammit, I'm going to take care of him. I don't care if I go down.’ So it started to connect with a fierceness in me that I didn't recognize.”

As host, Louis-Dreyfus “sits at the feet of some extraordinary teachers this season,” it continues. This 11-part season of Wiser Than Me will feature Julie Andrews, Billie Jean King, Beverly Johnson, Ina Garten, Anne Lamott, Patti Smith, Bonnie Raitt, Gloria Steinem, Debbie Allen and Vera Wang.

The Emmy-winning Veep star launched the podcast in 2023 with Jane Fonda on the debut episode. When guest Carol Burnett called her interviewer “one of the greatest comedic actresses of our time,” Louis-Dreyfus “practically fell over and passed out,” she recently told The Hollywood Reporter.

Louis-Dreyfus will next star in the movie Tuesday, and continue her role as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Episodes of the new season of Wiser Than Me will be released on Wednesdays, starting March 27.
