The 70-year-old star has served almost 50 long years in Hollywood, beginning his acting career in 1969. His showman skills were gained and trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Jeremy had tied the knot with Julie Hallam but it didn't work out. They split only a few months later. After such experience in the media industry and personal grounds as well, there is no harm in calling him a pro.

Jeremy explained why marriage is hard

In 2018, the couple marked 40 years of being happily married. On this occasion, Jeremy opened up about his relationship with his beloved wife, Sinead.

Irons describes himself as a very competitive and ambitious person. He works so hard, only focusing on his projects. In the process, he is always traveling and has to be apart from his partner. Many times he just shuts everyone out, including her. She used to think that she might have done something wrong but now she understands his nature.

In such a stressful situation, the divorce is always on the table. Like all couples, they considered it too. He deemed marriage a hard thing and told Standard UK:

I think that is a generalization, everyone has to make their own mind up. What I have learned is that no marriage is what it seems. I believe a couple should always talk to each other, and try to make it work, stick at it. It's worth it.
