She told Stylist magazine: 'My husband was the first person who really said to me: “You're not going to dinner after that big awards show Why” It wasn't even part of my thinking to be like: “Wow, this is awesome. Look what we did.”
'That wasn't the culture I was brought up in. I was working really hard and I don't know if I expected anything.
'When I began to know my husband, it would be little fun things he would do for me, or his friends. I never knew how he could know so many people.'
