About their film, A Quiet Place, John revealed that even though he did write (he also directed the project) the role of his wife for Emily, he never asked her to take it on. “I didn’t want it to be the one job that she was like, ‘Listen, I don’t know if I love this, but I love you, so I’ll do it,’” he confessed.
