  • Jodie Turner-Smith called her husband Joshua Jackson a "sex symbol" in a new interview.

  • The "Queen & Slim" star said she can't wait to see Jackson have sex on-screen again.

  • Turner-Smith said she loves to see Jackson "lean into the idea of him as the sex symbol that he is."

Jodie Turner-Smith called her husband Joshua Jackson a "sex symbol" in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

Reacting to the news that Jackson will star in an upcoming TV series reimagining of "Fatal Attraction" for Paramount + opposite Lizzy Caplan, Turner-Smith said she was excited.

"I can't wait to see my husband fucking on screen again. Did you watch 'The Affair?'" Turner-Smith told Vanity Fair, referencing Jackson's role on the steamy Showtime drama. "I'm like, let's go."

The "Queen & Slim" star went on to call Jackson "sexy" in the Paramount + show, even though the material is "pretty dark."

"He's not a good guy," Turner-Smith said of her husband's "Fatal Attraction" character. "He fucks around on his wife, and only because she goes nuts does he sort of figure out that he needs to redeem himself."

"I love to see him do stuff where he can continue to lean into the idea of him as the sex symbol that he is, because he's a sex symbol," she added.

Turner-Smith and Jackson welcomed a baby daughter in April 2020, and have been open about their relationship in the past.

During a July interview with Insider, Jackson revealed that he and Turner-Smith had a strong sexual connection from the very first time they met.

And even though the "Queen & Slim" actress had previously revealed on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" that the pair had a passionate "one-night stand" upon first meeting in 2018, Jackson clarified to Insider in July 2021 that it was "technically a three-night stand."

"I mean, when we tell the baby the story, I think I'm probably going to lead with, 'I saw your mother from across the room and just like knew I had to be with her,' which is also true," Jackson said. "But my wife is not telling a lie when she says we'd started off mostly with sex."

And in August, Jackson said he "re-proposed" to Turner-Smith after she asked him to marry her.

The "Dr. Death" star told Refinery29 that although Turner-Smith first popped the question, he wanted a chance to propose the "old-fashioned" way too.
