"During the production of "Blue Velvet", Lynch and Rossellini predictably fell in love and started dating which led to the director’s divorce from his second wife – Mary Fisk. Despite forgiving Lynch later, Fisk admitted: “My heart was truly broken, and I was walking around like a lost person with blood dripping from every pore.” Rossellini had also gone through the ordeal of divorce after ending things with her second husband Jonathan Wiedemann which explains why they found comfort in each other’s company. For the most part, their relationship was a long-distance one because Lynch was busy laying the groundwork for the television show that would change the medium forever; Twin Peaks. Rossellini, meanwhile, was preoccupied with her own life and career. The actress compared the presence of Lynch in her life to her marriage with Martin Scorsese due to their similarities: “Martin and David are alike...The men in my life are visionaries, a bit like my father. I feel extremely inspired by them, over-awed by their presence.” Although they spent hours on the phone and were still passionate about each other, Lynch had his own frustrations about their relationship. One of those frustrations was truly bizarre and included the filmmaker’s reservations over the smell of Rossellini’s cooking. He even confessed to it in an interview: “The smell. The smell of cooking – When you have drawings or even writing – the smell would get all over my work.” They parted ways after the Cannes premiere of Wild at Heart (1990) which left the actress completely heartbroken. Later in her life, Rossellini reflected: “David was the big love of my life. And I believed that he loved me the same way, but obviously I was mistaken. All my instincts told me we were a happy couple, but we weren’t.” After everything that happened, Lynch and Rossellini are still friends to this day which remains situated on a foundation of mutual respect and admiration."
