"If I was to get married again, I think it would be lovely to have a situation where you could live close by." The actress was married to filmmaker Len Wiseman for 11 years until the pair divorced in 2015.
Kate explains exactly why she thinks this situation would work so well: "I think being married is kind of easy," she tells Women's Health. "You don’t have to do anything to be married. But the living with the person thing is a lot. And even if it’s a roommate, you’re still negotiating. I think Virginia Woolf was very right about a room of one’s own."
Kate isn't the only celeb who's into the idea of unconventional married life. Gwyneth Paltrow opened up about delaying moving in with her husband Brad Falchuk for one year after the wedding. "A smart move" if you ask Kate. "I think that’s so sensible, especially because they’ve got kids," Kate told Women's Health. "Trying to force everyone to be siblings is really stressful."
Kaley Cuoco has also spoken about living separately from her husband, Karl Cook. “We’re eventually going to be under the same roof forever,” she told E!. Kaley admitted they have "a very unconventional marriage" but says that it works for them.
For Kate, having a room of one's own, especially for women, is empowering. "I think it’s very easy for us to kind of mentally subjugate our needs to whoever else is in the room," she told Women's Health. "And we’re sort of slightly brainwashed and raised to do that, and it’s quite nice to not always have to negotiate that." She adds, "Sometimes it’s just nice to be in charge of your own remote."
