Personal Quote:

[on relationships with David Boreanaz during her directing] He's so supportive of me. He's the first person to say how much he supported me directing and he's been really lovely that way. I really have a great partner. I think it'll be great. He'll give me a hard time, but I wouldn't expect anything less of him. See more »
