Post-Divorce Acting Helps One Ex Hollywood Couple

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One post-divorce acting gig was just what actress Barbara Dana needed to mend the rift with her famous ex-husband.

Dana – formerly married to Oscar-winning actor Alan Arkin – stars in the dramatic comedy Raising Flagg opposite Arkin, and says working with her ex right after their divorce was a lot easier than she expected.

In the film, Dana plays Arkin’s on-screen wife, and although Dana and Arkin were no longer a real life couple during filming, their divorce had little effect on their on-screen chemistry.

Dana explains, “Alan and I have acted together many times and we’ve learned how to communicate with each other no matter what the situation is. We were just coming off our divorce, so the experience was bittersweet, but it was also good for us. It was nice to work on a loving project together again. It was comforting to be back on a level where we both understood each other.”

Raising Flagg comes out on DVD tomorrow (Jan. 29).
