When in front of the camera, the mother of four delivers and interprets her role to the letter so it is no wonder she does same for romantic scenes which she gives her all leaving us to wonder how her Hubby would react.

Could you as a guy marry an Actress? Or as a Lady give up Acting (or some other thing you are passionate about) @ your husbands request?
