John Turturro directs Susan Sarandon in the musical Romance and Cigarettes (out now).

“She’s really funny,” he tells me. “She’s a person who’s always aware of every person on the crew. If anyone has a problem, she’s the person who will take care of it. She’s a real team person. She likes to take care of everybody. She’s a lovely person.”

John, 50, has been married to wife Katherine for twenty-two years, and they are parents to two sons Armedeo, 17, and Diego, 7. The couple enjoys traveling, exercising and listening to music together. Why are they a match made in heaven? “We listen to each other. We still like each other. We still discover certain things about each other. It’s hard to be in a long relationship, especially in this business. She’s someone I respect, too.”
