Oscars: Mark Ruffalo happy to share his nod with wife Sunrise Coigney [Video]

February 27, 2011 |  8:57 pm

Mark Ruffalo counted himself "a little excited ... a little tired, but ... mostly very happy" Sunday as he arrived at the Academy Awards with wife Sunrise Coigney. "And I'm very happy to be here with this beautiful woman, who I share ... this nomination with."

Contrast that with being "excited ... tired, but mostly content and slightly hung over" before the Spirit Awards on Saturday.

OK, not that much of a contrast, but hey, the supporting actor nominee has been working the red carpet for just about ever now, right?

Ruffalo said he tweeted his thank yous Sunday, "on the slim chance that I don't win," which sparked a bit of harrumphing from Coigney. "She hates it when I say that," he said. "I know I'm not going to win!"

Delighted to have his "The Kids Are All Right" outing included among what he called "showier" performances, including Christian Bale's turn in "The Fighter," Ruffalo admitted: "I'm super quiet. I'm shy, actually. This is all an act."
