Reliving the moment in a recent Q&A, the 50-year-old explained: "I met Michael at the Deauville Film Festival in France, when we were speaking French. I was promoting Zorro, he was promoting a movie and we met, and then we really didn't meet again until nine months later but we corresponded in letters and over the phone. So, old school. It was very nice, very nice courting time." Speaking of her two children Dylan and Carys, she added: "And then we got together and then we got married really quick and had babies, so it's 20 years."
