DAME Helen Mirren found it difficult working with her director husband - because she got upset whenever shouted at people onset.
Mirren and her partner Taylor Hackford have teamed up for new movie Love Ranch, about a Nevada brothel.
And The Queen star admits it was an emotional experience being directed by a loved one.
She says, "Working with him, I have to say, wasn't easy. My husband in work mode is not the easiest of people, although a lot of people adore working with him. But because I have the emotional connection with him, I would get upset if he was shouting, not at me, but at someone else, demanding something.
"I would find myself rushing around trying to clean up after him. There's nothing I love more than going to my husband's set and being his wife. But this, it mixes the roles up.
"He didn't make me cry but he made me very cross."
