The actress reveals that she and husband Marc Schauer first met at the 2004 Telluride Film Festival and she was straightaway attracted to him and thinking, 'Oh my God, am I attracted to my handler?'
Actress Laura Linney met her husband Marc Schauer when he was assigned to be her "handler" at the 2004 Telluride Film Festival. "The Truman Show" star was stunned when she found herself becoming attracted to the real estate broker who was given the job of looking after her at the event.
She tells More magazine, "He was not a painfully awkward, strange chap, as some of them can be... I was alone with Marc (and) I remember turning and looking at him (and thinking), 'Oh my God, am I attracted to my handler?' "
"I thought, 'Calm down.' But there was a part of me that was very relieved. I felt like something was waking up. I thought, 'How wonderful that I can feel this again.'" Linney and Schauer exchanged vows in May 2009.
