MARRIAGE AND FAMILY

The Golden Globe winner is a fan of large families, with one of his own, which he chose to keep away from the spotlight through their growing phase. He once said of his large family,

"It's not a matter of hiding them. I love them tremendously. But people throw stones at those you love, and in protecting those that I love, I stay silent."
