Infidelity is a big part of Julianna Margulies’s fictional world as the betrayed spouse on The Good Wife. Thankfully, there’s been no such high drama in almost three years of real-life marriage to lawyer Keith Lieberthal.
“I think that when you have gotten things out of your system, you are less tempted by distractions,” the actress, 44, tells Redbook in its September issue, on newsstands Aug. 24. “My only temptations now are chocolate and martinis.”
Still, through her Emmy-nominated role on the CBS drama, Margulies has become a de facto expert on infidelity – and has had to imagine what it would be like to be cheated on, or even to be unfaithful herself.
