Advice for Directors Married to Movie Stars
12.03.08 by REELZ
Kate Winslet tells People.com she had a "total meltdown" while her husband Sam Mendes was directing her in a sex scene with Leo DiCaprio for the upcoming Revolutionary Road. Apparently Mendes was giving her too many detailed instructions about where her hands should be and things like that. Admittedly, this is a small demographic, but just in case you happen to be a director married to a movie star, you can learn from Mendes' mistakes. Some rules to follow:
1) Make sure you give your wife's co-star some instructions too, so she doesn't feel like she's the only one doing things wrong.
2) Don't be afraid to let her improvise a little; a little extra film footage is much cheaper than a divorce.
3) Never, ever, ever tell her her posterior looks fat out of those jeans.
