Third Person , written and directed by Paul Haggis, tells three inter-connected love stories. In Wilde's, she plays the lover of Liam Neeson's character, who is also a writer, and who recently left his wife. Incidentally, Carson had no trouble believing that someone with a "tush" like Wilde's would sleep with a man more than 30 years her senior.
