Part 2: "Time went by and eventually he stopped calling. However, I would still run into him every now and again at the clubs. He would always be in the VIP rooms with all the other out of control, party boy actors. Every time I saw him, I did my best to avoid him. Then one summer night in late August, I ran into him and couldn't get away. He asked me what happened and what he did wrong. I told him he did nothing wrong and that I just wasn't ready for a serious relationship. I didn't hear from him again until October. He called, and my best friend / roommate at the time was like, "just go out with him! He's a nice guy and he's still calling you after everything you've put him through." So I did. We went to The Mint and listened to some great music and totally fell in love. We got married 3 months later on NYE Dec 31st 1990. We've been together now for 30 years and have 2 beautiful children. Being married to an actor hasn't always been easy- but I wouldn't trade it for the world. We have managed to raise a family through the career highs and lows and have always made it work. We are proud of our lasting love and commitment to each other. Staying together for 30 years as a couple in Hollywood is rare, and that's why our love story has been the greatest role of all."

Repost: @emilycoxhead ‘Life is weird and scary right now but we’ve got this x’ It’s okay to feel overwhelmed right now, it’s okay to be anxious, sad, angry and confused. You are absolutely not on your own with this, if you’re living alone, please reach out and stay connected… it’s more important than ever that we check in on others by picking up the phone. We quite literally are all in this together. I don’t know when things will start to feel a little more normal but what I do know is that when they do we will have an appreciation and gratitude like we’ve never felt before. We will hug and dance and sing and nip to the shops and out for lunch and go to the park with little ones and catch up over cups of tea with our grandparents and with our mates at the pub. We will have an even greater respect for our doctors, nurses, pharmacists, carers, emergency services, teachers, cleaners, delivery drivers and shop assistants… the incredible individuals with families of their own who are all holding the fort for us right now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart x
