‘I guess they say you marry one of your parents. My mum liked to have fun, and it wasn’t like in a heavy rock ‘n’ roll way,’ she tells the publication. 

‘She was still very reliable, but she just loved community and [having] people over. She [hosted] a friendly poker game and she just liked cooking and people around. We usually have jams on a Friday night – just a sense of what it was like in our 20s. We’re older now, but [we] like that kind of vibe’.  

Elsewhere in the interview, Ben discussed the iconic 1989 film, Say Anything, which made Ione a pin up girl for scores of fans in the 1990s. 

Fun pair: Ione, 51, says she and Ben, 43, both being creative souls, love to entertain and have people over. They married in December 2008, in a Hindu wedding ceremony in India

‘I’m not nostalgic. I’ve learnt to appreciate my past in as much as other people appreciate it. I’m always thinking about today and tomorrow,’ he said. 

‘Ione, every now and then, she’ll post a picture from Say Anything… It’s not like she desperately feels the need, but she does it because it makes people feel good’.

Say Anything is a romantic drama directed by Cameron Crowe and co-starring John Cusack, whose character Lloyd Dobler famously held a boombox above his head to woo his love interest Diane Court, played by Ione, in one memorable scene that has become a part of pop culture history.
