Does Negan need protection? Apparently so! Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s wife, Hilarie Burton, revealed what their life is like now that he’s become one of the stars of TV’s biggest shows, ‘The Walking Dead’.
Hilarie Burton, 34, could not help but gush over her husband, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 50, at the Adrienne Shelly Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Gala on Monday, Dec. 5, in New York, New York. Hilarie spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com about her husband’s newfound fame thanks to his role as Negan on The Walking Dead, and despite his terrifying portrayal of the character, his wife shared that she’s the one who is keeping him safe these days!
“Yeah, I feel like I’ve kind of had to turn into this like raging bully to protect him!” Hilarie shared. “Like I’ve got my hand out a lot, you know, you turn into, not to be a stereotype, but a b-tch! You gotta protect the home front!” Aw! It’s sweet that Hilarie is working so hard to keep Jeffrey safe, especially since it’s his character that is responsible for two of the biggest deaths on TWD — Glenn and Abraham, both of whom were adored by the fans.
“It’s different,” Hilarie told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY of their usually quiet life together these days. “Jeffrey is such a sweet, quiet, kind of shy guy, and so to see that performance, and have people now that we’re out in public kind of expect that out of him — he’s an introvert.”
