Today the situation has changed and Martin answered some questions, though without much enthusiasm.
So, Freeman admitted that he with Amand was lucky to leave without scandals and sensational trials: “Yes, we have some time together. You know me enough to understand that I’m not going to discuss this topic, but it’s all right, Yes. Honestly, we broke up in so civilized a manner as possible”.

By the way, to admire his former love, Martin, despite the breakup, he didn’t. It just as before, appreciate the acting talent of Amanda: “I love the work Amanda. I think she’s a brilliant actress and a wonderful woman and, Yes, I love it. I will always love Amanda, but we… You know how it is. It happens. But we’re okay.”
At the time, Abbington too assured in an interview that she and Martin “will remain best friends”: “Martin and I remain best friends and love each other, and our breakup was a mutual decision. No animosity, we just decided that we can no longer live together, he moved into a flat in London, I stayed home and we started a new Chapter.”
