Ben makes the world laugh with his movies, but Christine is his favorite audience. "For me, laughter is such a huge part of a relationship," he told Parade in 2010. "My wife has a great sense of humor. What I like is to try to make her laugh." Her laughter helps him put things in perspective, too. "Sometimes she laughs at things that I take too seriously, which I find helpful in keeping me grounded," he said.
