Willem Dafoe adores being directed by his wife GIADA COLAGRANDE, because the sexual tension makes filming a powerfully intense experience. The PLATOON star's upcoming movie BEFORE IT HAD A NAME is a team effort between the twosome - not only did they write it together, they star alongside each other too. He says, "I've always worked with people I've been involved with. "There's intensity, for better or worse, just because the stakes are higher. "When you're inspired, the inspiration is that much more intense; when you're failing, the failure is much more scary and frustrating. "So it notched things up a bit."
