Mariel Hemingway On Her Spiritual Partnership With Bobby Williams (VIDEO)

Mariel Hemingway, the Oscar-nominated actress and granddaughter to novelist Ernest Hemingway, met former stuntman Bobby Williams through a mutual friend five years ago. Since then, their relationship has evolved into a spiritual partnership with a shared love of nature. In this clip from "Super Soul Sunday" on OWN, Hemingway talks about her instant attraction to Williams and how their connection is deeper than anything she's ever felt.

"It's the first time I can honestly be with somebody -- be wholly myself, and yet share space -- and God, it feels good," Hemingway says in the video.

"This is a spiritual partnership, I can tell." Oprah says. "Gary Zukav's definition [of a spiritual partnership] is a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth. And what's so interesting is a lot of people figure that out along the way, but you all knew it from the beginning."

"Instantly," Williams says.

"That this is somebody I can grow my life with," Oprah says. "That's the only way you can be fully 100 percent yourself."

"Absolutely," Hemingway agrees. "I mean, there was a recognition, and it was more than chemistry. It was, oh my God, this person speaks my language."

"And he can see me," Hemingway adds, choking up. "And I've never felt seen."

"I love that," Oprah says.

Oprah's conversation with Hemingway and Williams on "Super Soul Sunday" airs Sunday, September 22 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
