Ben Stiller tests jokes on wife Christine Taylor

Ben StillerBen Stiller relies on Christine Taylor to help him edit all of his jokes.

The couple, who have been married for 15 years and have 12-year-old daughter Ella and nine-year-old son Quinlin, enjoy working together on set and have teamed up on a number of films, including Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Zoolander.

The Zoolander 2 actor insists he wouldn’t be half as funny without his actress wife’s help and tests all of his material out on her first.

The 49-year-old director said: ”We trust each other. We get each other. You can’t do comedy in a vacuum. You need people to react.”

Ben previously admitted he finds it difficult to stay relevant as he gets older.

He explained: ”It’s hard to stay current to whatever the current hipster hipness is. Pop culture moves so quickly now and people’s attention spans are so short.”
