The Big Easy star added that he had never intended to find someone of Laura's age. It just happened thanks to fate.

I didn't go out looking for an age gap or someone really younger than me. I met her at a business event, and then the relationship developed. You have no control over who you fall in love with. I don't fall in love easy. But I can't let what a few people think to control all that.

I've been married three times, and this is the final one, I know it is. I feel like I have a real partner in life.
