LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Julianna Margulies has already won Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards as the star of "The Good Wife," which just wrapped its first season on CBS. The former "ER" actress recently spoke with the Hollywood Reporter about her new role as a junior attorney married to a disgraced prosecutor.

THE LIFE OF YOUR CHARACTER, ALICIA FLORRICK, IS LIVED IN

PUBLIC. IS YOURS?

Julianna Margulies: There's not a lot of my own personal life that's out there, except that I have a baby and a husband (attorney Keith Lieberthal) and I'm happy. My husband and I take tremendous pains to make sure our son is never photographed -- and he usually isn't. As much as I have to do publicity, I try my hardest to talk about the work.

YOUR HUSBAND'S A TRIAL ATTORNEY?

Margulies: My husband is now general counsel for a clothing company. He was a Wall Street litigator and he knew that if he wanted to see his family, litigation wasn't the way to go.

DOES HE CRITIQUE THE SHOW?

Margulies: Not really. He loves it. There are moments when he'll say, "Oh, that wouldn't have taken 20 minutes," and I'm like, "Yeah, but we have to finish the case!"   Continued...
