Why his marriage with Rita works so well
Tom’s marriage to Samantha wasn’t pointless. It resulted in two beautiful kids, and it also helped the actor grow and learn from past mistakes.
In an interview with Oprah Magazine, Tom said his marriage with Rita has worked so well because he met her at the right time:
The success of our relationship was a matter of timing, maturity, and our willingness to have an intimate connection. When I married Rita, I thought, "This is going to require some change on my part." I won't deny that providence was part of us finding each other, but our relationship isn't magic—the way it's shown in movies. In real life, our connection is as concrete as me sitting here.
