"So proud of my darling husband @jeffbaena for dreaming up another film that takes us to italia to cause some more trouble," Plaza wrote, referring to their next movie together Spin Me Round. The post featured a sweet photo of the longtime couple.

The two have been working together a lot lately, as the actress makes her directorial debut in Showtime's new found footage anthology series Cinema Toast, created by Baena. The couple worked on the series together while quarantining at home.

"We were quarantined for months and months like everybody else," she recently told PEOPLE. "And we did enjoy it. I think it was, obviously other than all of the catastrophic things happening in the world, just on a personal level, relationship level, was kind of nice to just be forced to be in one place for that long. Could have gone either way, I guess."

Back in 2019, Plaza opened up to PEOPLE about her relationship with the director as they continue working together throughout their careers.

"I think that when you're with someone that is in your field, they understand what you're dealing with on a deeper level. So obviously you are able to support each other and really understand kind of the journey that we're both on," Plaza told PEOPLE.

"So I think that can be really great," the actress continued. "But, you know, working with your partner can always be challenging. There's a lot of things we do separately and I think that it's all about balance."

"I think that one of the great things about our careers is that we are forced to be independent, take little breaks, go off and do our things and come back. So it's kind of fun. Nothing is ever the same. You don't want to spend too much time a part. But I think that there's a way that it can work and there's a balance in that."
