I wouldn't call Sammy easygoing and funny, but everybody has their dark side, and he always does it with a sense of humor.

And even while still in a relationship, she didn’t shy away from making compliments to her boyfriend. She told Vanity Fair:

He's a great man, a natural man, which is rare. I've had romances with what you'd call famous men, and none compare to Sam in terms of maleness.
