People sometimes ask me how I’ve managed to get to the age of 39 and never been married. The answer is, I don’t know.
It’s not like I’m a die-hard single guy, sitting around in my bachelor pad saying, ‘Yes, I’m still out there!’ It just seems to be one of those random things, and if anything I think it’s kind of pathetic that I haven’t been able to find Ms Right yet.
I don’t know if my being famous has anything to do with still being single, although dating another actor does get complicated at times.
I went through a time, a few years ago, when I said to myself that I would never again date anyone who even knew what a sound stage was.
I had a fantasy of phoning my girlfriend and saying, ‘Honey, I’m at the sound stage,’ and she’d say, ‘I don’t know what that is…’ at which point I’d say, ‘I love you! Let’s get married!’ But, of course, it’s not as simple as that, is it?
They say that women like a man who can make them laugh, and
I find that if you can make a woman laugh on the first and second dates, then you’re doing well.
When I was younger I used humour as a tool to avoid getting too serious with people – if there was deep emotional stuff going on, then I would crack a joke to defuse the situation.
But that’s not good when you’re dating someone – you have to learn to listen to your girlfriend as well as amuse her. It took me a while to figure that one out.
I would love to have kids one day. In fact, I’m pretty good with them. I grew up with five half-siblings, the youngest of whom is 11 years younger than me, so I think I learned some pretty cool parenting skills quite early on in life.
