“I’ve never have loved my wife more than after we did this movie,” he says. “For me, it was a trust thing. We trust each other in day-to-day life for sure, but when you trust each other in this way it’s different.”

“We were really honest with each other from the beginning,” he adds. “By the time we were shooting, it was just the best.”

Also starring Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, A Quiet Place hits theaters April 6.
