Why do people get married if not to reap the benefits of what their significant other can bring to their career? (Love? Does not compute.) Godzilla’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson thought it was best NOT to attract that type of hype to his wife’s movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. Yes, the 23-year-old British actor is married to Sam Taylor-Johnson, who is directing the kinky-romantic book-turned-movie thriller. "I think it would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring toward us," Taylor-Johnson says in Nylon Guys' May 2014 issue. "It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy—he's one in a million—and my wife picks her husband to play the part? I would love to have done something together again, but it wouldn't have been Fifty. We were both on the same page." He reassures us that he will definitely be seeing the movie, even though he has not read the book. Supporting your spouse’s work is probably a smart way to keep the fire alive in his marriage, especially since he mentioned they “don’t have a Red Room at home". In the cover story, Aaron reminisces about his decision to quit school in the UK and move to the rolling hills of Hollywood to pursue his acting career: "I was pretty self-destructive at one point. I used to smoke 30 [cigarettes] a day, used to f--king drink nonstop. I've always been able to be on the f--king edge—be on the line, but then pull myself back." Auditions were an opportunity to straighten up and exercise his acting even when he wasn’t reading for a part. From pretending to be American to picking up the “fittest” girl in the bar, his confidence soared. He eventually stopped the latter situation once he met Sam. The Kick Ass star and new Avengers: Age of Ultron alum says he fancies the family life more than the pub these days. Aaron and Sam have two children together, Wylda and Romy, and she has 2 older kids from a previous marriage. "I love the f--king music class. I'm the only dad there. It's, like, mums and nannies...and you're clapping your hands. You're singing more than the kids are," he said.
