Ayda Field shares Robbie Williams' humour
Ayda Field has never met anyone who makes her laugh like Robbie Williams.
The 36-year-old actress may have grown up in California but she insists she is a "total Northerner" who shares the same sense of humour as her British husband.
She said: "Things that are funny [in the UK], in America the curtain goes down.
"I think our mutual connection is we make each other laugh.
"Before Rob, maybe because I was an American where irony doesn't necessarily exist I never met anyone who shared my sense of humour.
"I'm a total Northerner. We understood each other, it was like this revelation, he could understand me and I could understand someone else.
"It's a great thing - Northerners rock, I love a Northerner. "
Ayda also joked her spouse - with who she has daughter Teddy, three, and son Charlton, 16 months - is good at "pretending" to be a pop star, but she also thinks he has a lot of acting talent.
Speaking on UK TV show 'Loose Women', she said: "Robbie pretends to be a pop star - I mean that in a good way, I don't mean that in a bad way.
"He's a really good actor, he's very funny, we do little bits when I'm running scenes and I'll make him run the lines with me and he's really good.
"I think he's got a future in the entertainment business."
