Actress Julianne Moore pursued her third husband, director Bart Freundlich, despite being warned off him by friends because of their nine-year age gap.
The couple began dating while shooting 1997 movie The Myth of Fingerprints together - and married in 2003.
Moore, 46, says, "He is nine years younger than me and it was his debut feature film. I thought he was off-limits."
She adds that friends told her, "Leave him alone, it's his first movie. You'll able to do this; he won't."
