‘What’s it like when you’re doing a love scene in the movie, and Jacko’s watching and vice-versa?’ he asked.

‘It’s so weird – I suppose because I’ve done it so many times before, it’s not really romantic,’ she said of herself. ‘You’ve got the light in your face, you’ve got to hit a mark and so it’s not really sexy.’

But when it comes to watching her husband, she added: ‘When I’m sitting in the theatre watching – especially if I’m with the kids – I feel a little uncomfortable.

‘But also, a lot of the times I’m very good friends with the actress he’s making out with as we’re making a film, we all get to know each other.

‘Sometimes its weird seeing it, and I think the kids are like, “Ahh!” [Oscar, their son] doesn’t want to watch.’

She sweetly concluded: ‘[But] when you’re in a relationship, that’s just all fluff, you know? It’s all fluff.’

The couple met on the set of Australian TV show Correlli in 1995. They tied the knot just 11 months later on April 11, 1996.
