"Alan likes women, he understands women and he does write for women. You just feel with him that you could chat about any women's problems. He's in no way not butch, but I can natter on to him like I would to a girlfriend."

"Alan was an actor, he knows our insecurities and how we need lots of pats on the back along the way and reining in."
