Damian Lewis - Damian Lewis' Wife Can't Watch Homeland

Damian Lewis' actress wife Helen Mccrory refuses to watch her husband in Homeland because she finds his portrayal of a tortured Iraq war veteran "too disturbing".

The British actor plays an American soldier who returns home after spending several years as a hostage in the Middle East, and Harry Potter star MCCrory admits she finds the scenes of violence and torture extremely upsetting.

She says, "I haven't actually seen the old Homeland because it is really distressing, and people say is that because, you know, of the love scenes and everything? But it is... not so much the love scenes, it's when he is bashed to death on the floor and urinated on by a guard. That is the bit I have a problem with, watching your husband doing that, however much he says it is just acting."
