Mary-Louise Parker is writing a book about the "significant men in her life," which may or may not include juicy details about exes Billy Crudup and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The book, Dear Mr. You, will detail the Emmy-, Tony-, and Golden Globe-winning actress' life through a series of letters penned to the most important men in her life.

The book will be released by Simon and Schuster imprint Scribner in fall 2015.

“I am so honored and thrilled to be working with Scribner and in the company of such wonderful writers,” said Parker, 50, in a Scribner press release.

“From Frank McCourt to Jeannette Walls to Anjelica Huston, Scribner loves a great memoirist, and Mary-Louise Parker is one,” said senior vice president and publisher Nan Graham. “Her writing is magnificent; the concept—a memoir in letters to men—is wholly original and brilliantly executed.”

Parker was in a seven-year relationship with actor Billy Crudup and gave birth to their son, William Atticus, in 2004, three months after the couple split up. She also once dated her Weeds co-star, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan and singer Charlie Mars.

Parker is known for her film roles in Grand Canyon and Fried Green Tomatoes, and for her Broadway production of Proof, which earned her a Tony Award. She also won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe for her 2004 performance in the HBO miniseries Angels in America. She won a second Golden Globe in 2006 for her performance on Weeds.
