Hugh Laurie on his transatlantic marriage

Monday April 19, 2010

Giving a rare insight into his private life, actor Hugh Laurie has spoken about the difficulties of working in Hollywood while wife Jo resides in England.

"I wouldn't say that doing the series has made my marriage easier. Better? I don't know about that either," the House star tells US magazine Parade.

"Doing weekly TV is like joining the Navy and going on the other side of the world for ten months of the year," says the 50-year-old, who married Jo in 1989.

The couple decided against taking their two children out of school and moving to LA together.

"The truth is that whatever challenging situation you're in, somebody somewhere has got a much more extreme version. So I think one ought to shut up and not moan about it," Hugh adds.
