Actress Kate Bosworth's View of Heaven

When actress Kate Bosworth, who plays the strong-willed wife of a preacher in the movie 90 Minutes in Heaven, thinks about heaven, she doesn't particularly think of a man on a white horse, or Jesus, or thrones. She and her film-director husband, Michael Polish, worked together on the movie 90 Minutes, and when asked whether it had made her think about the existence of God and heaven, Bosworth said it would have been "impossible not to."

"I would love to have either Mike waiting for me or me waiting for Mike with our dogs running around," says Bosworth, "I mean, that's heaven, you know?" she said. "Whatever heaven is for each individual, that would certainly be it for me."
