During The Conversation on Canal +, the 33-year-old recalled how his break up with the Desperate Housewives star had left him heartbroken. He said: "It's not easy to leave a relationship, because when I get involved in something, I want to do well.
"The exposure, I could not control. This is the world we live in today; everything is on the Internet and on social network sites. I never paid attention to what people said. Hollywood is another world, on another level."
Since their divorice five years ago, Tony has married French journalist Axelle Francine and the couple share a son named Josh. Speaking openly about his role as a father, the San Antonio Spurs player said: "I'm a new man. I never imagined to feel so much love in this facet of my life. I never thought I'd be so happy."

Eva filed for divorce from the Frenchman in 2010 after only three years of marriage. The petition cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split and soon after infidelity rumours circulated, with reports that Tony had been unfaithful.
The actress, 40, reportedly confided to friend Mario Lopez – host of TV show Extra - that she found "hundreds of texts" from another woman on her husband's phone.
The brunette beauty, who is due to appear on NBC screens in the new show Hot & Bothered, is still very much loved up with her partner, Mexican businessman Pepe Bastón.
