The actress had a strange but effective advice for married people, and it's about simple things.

"Boredom is underestimated, I didn't understand this for a long time. Also, it helps that we met each other later in our lives. It's okay just to do nothing and be together; sometimes sharing a space and doing your own thing in silence, with connectivity and thoughtfulness—'Can I bring you a cup of tea?'—is enough. It's little simple things."

Aging Gracefully

She spoke about the beauty of getting older with someone and how the simplicity in her marriage has helped her age gracefully against every thought that growing older meant doom for love or her strength.

"...I thought getting older maybe meant that you're not in love anymore; I'm in love. I don't feel that I lost my flexibility or my agility or even my strength. I do have to say that I have found it beautiful, getting older with someone."
