During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he confessed: "My wife and I realized that we've been married for a really long time, and quarantine really was an amazing, kind of, test for our marriage because I mean, we were really isolated," the actor began.

"And, again, you know, drinks, maybe dinner, whatever. And then we'd get back together in the kitchen and do the same thing all over again."
