  • You don’t necessarily always want to be with someone who works in your business. It takes a certain kind of couple that are both actors to be able to make it, and it takes a certain kind of ego and lack of competition and ability to really sustain a relationship while you’re spending a lot of time apart. I’m with a cinematographer. He’s very stable, and I’m highly neurotic – so it works.
