People think the Batman star was the real badass in The Dark Knight Rises, which is notably true. However, fans could argue that his wife was the real daredevil since she was the stunt driver in the 2012 film.
“My wife was a stunt driver, she was chasing me through the city in Batman,” he told the Wall Street Journal in 2014. “She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that. She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me.”

“And thank you for our beautiful children, Banana and Burrito. They’ve given me a love and a soul I never thought possible.”

“[My wife] likes to be very private. And of course, I want to maintain that … but we have a great private life. She’s probably the most strong woman I’ve ever come across in my life,” he told Us Weekly in 2017 with Sibi by his side. “And I — You’re making me all tearful! I’m too much of a softie! I don’t think I am, but then you got me with that!”
