It either means that we run a business together or we're cowboys. 'Boyfriend' seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago. I've been saying 'better half' for as long as I've been able to. I think it's a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we're in a relationship, but it would be nice to say 'my husband'. Hide

What I might find funny, the editor might not find funny. They might choose the reaction shot from Take 4 with my line from Take 1 with my next line from Take 7, and then the timing that I was trying to do does not come across. Hide

Harper, our daughter, likes us to tell her scary stories. I'm thinking now back to 'Grimm's Fairy Tales'.

He directs as if he is an artist painting pictures, so he tends to create a quiet, unsettling dynamic through the use of symmetry and asymmetry. And when you look at the paintings he's created, you feel something is a bit amiss, and there's a yearning for something - something that isn't there... I think he picks his projects really carefully, based on the knowledge that he will make them better. He knows what's in his wheelhouse. Hide

She's an absolute catch, and I thought if I'm not going to feel the super sparks with her, then it probably means that I'm gay.
