Jeanne Tripplehorn insisted her husband Leland Orser slept in their guest house while they worked together on new movie Morning because she feared spending so much time together would cause tension in their marriage.

The Taken actor wrote, starred and directed the drama, about a couple coping with the loss of a child, and Tripplehorn admits they took a little time out of their real-life relationship during the shoot.

She says, "It's a little intense... We just decided during the period of working together, because it would be so intense, that he would move to the guest house. I needed a little separation of church and state and the marriage survived!"

The actress wed Orser in 2000.
