I know it sounds simple, but it's true!" He also spoke about how much he loved her films, saying: "Oh god, what's my favourite Jen movie?... I think Cake. Not just because it was her most recent one.

Although the star remained tight-lipped on how they celebrated Jennifer's birthday, the actress has previously spoken about her husband's love of surprising her, telling Ellen DeGeneres: "My husband… surprised me on Thanksgiving and came home from Germany. It was really sweet. We had just been together the week prior; I was going to London to do some work. His schedule was apparently 'completely booked' for the week, and he wasn't going to be able to come back. Everyone was just very somber. Next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey. And that was my hubby."
