We defy you to watch Nocturnal Animals and not be freaked out by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays the kind of bad guy nightmares are made of.
It’s why the Best Supporting Actor winner made sure to thank his wife, director Sam Taylor-Johnson, in his acceptance speech. “Thank you for putting up with me. I was not very pleasant, in this role. You’re my soulmate. I love you very much,” he said.
Collective awww here, folks. The couple had a bucolic morning, getting ready for the red carpet.
“It was lovely. We had breakfast at the Beverly Hills. We had pancakes with the kids and they went swimming. We got ready and came here,” said Aaron Taylor-Johnson during arrivals.
His wife, meanwhile, was radiant in her sexy frock by Alexander McQueen.
“I was sent a picture of just this dress. I loved it immediately,” said Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Heading into the awards, the two were focusing on the fun part. Not the nail-biting aspect of winning or losing.
“It’s the close proximity to the people you’re superexcited about seeing. It feels really unreal,” said Sam Taylor-Johnson. “We’ve decided to go with the excited part and ignore the nervous part.”
