Los Angeles: British actor Ray Winstone says his wife would leave him if he ever went back home as a character he had played.
The "Noah" star, known for taking on mostly "tough guy" roles on the big screen, met his partner Elaine in 1979 while filming "That Summer". He credits her for helping him relax after a tough day of filming, reports contactmusic.com.
Asked about how he gets out of his character, the 57-year-old told BANG Showbiz: "Every job is a different job and I think I approach it in a different way. I don't take it home with me because the characters I play, I wouldn't be married very long if I did.
"What I like to do is laugh, if I'm playing a bit I like to laugh a lot and take it right down there.
