True Blood’s Carrie Preston
might just be the cutest couple in La La Land.
They met 17 years ago during a production of Hamlet, and it was love at first sight! “Before I knew it, there were little vases of fresh flowers and baskets of peaches waiting outside my door,” Carrie says.
“Michael had a peach tree. He was very romantic.”
The Hollywood power couple spent some time apart when Michael was filming Lost in Hawaii, but Carrie says it was all worth it.
“It was fun to see him wearing Billabong shorts,” she jokes.
Micheal adds that their opposite personalities make them click as a couple, “Carrie is a forward-looking person, and I am backward-looking, so she’ll bring me new shows and new movies, and I’ll say, “Watch this old black-and-white British thing.”
Carrie and Michael have no plans to appear in each other’s shows, but Michael jokes that if they were to star in a sitcom, it would be about “a couple of completely self-involved over-the-top actors in the 1920s, or two actors who have decided to give it all up and move to a quiet life in a small town. But they just. Can’t. Stop. Being. Fantastic!”
We’d tune in every week!
