Former E.R. star Julianna Margulies has Tom Hanks' actress wife Rita Wilson to thank for helping her master her lines - she turned her on to an amazing new memory tool online.

Margulies reveals she asked Wilson for help when she found herself struggling to remember dialogue for her hit drama The Good Wife - and the Sleepless in Seattle star suggested she try a new cellphone application, called Rehearsal 2.

The actress tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It's on the iPad. You highlight your lines with your fingers.

"I shoot 23 episodes a year, and it's all legal dialogue. It's so inhuman what they (writers) want you to do. Rita Wilson, who was a guest on our show, saw me... just sweating bullets all the time. She's like, 'Honey, Rehearsal 2'. And it's changed my life!"
