Jack Black has revealed his secret to cultivating a good relationship – thinking like a gardener.
The Gulliver’s Travels star, who is married to cellist Tanya Haden, is convinced that green-fingered thinking is the key to success.
“Being a good husband is like being a gardener. You’ve got to give your partner lots of water and sunshine – love and support,” he told The Sun.
“Communication is key – listening and sharing, finding a good TV show to watch together.
“It’s also important to ask for what you want. I have a tendency to do whatever my wife wants, then anger builds up inside me and comes out in little passive-aggressive bursts.”
Jack, Tanya and their two sons decamped to England while he filmed Gulliver’s Travels at Pinewood Studios.
The 41-year-old, who plays mailroom clerk Lemuel Gulliver, revealed one of his favourite parts of the stay was getting to sample the food.
He added: “I love the curries. They have better curries here. I am a sauce man by nature.”
