Personal Quote:

I've always been attracted to women who are assertive and have confidence - qualities older women possess. They've been on the Earth a little longer. They're more seasoned. They don't play games. They know what they want, and they're not afraid to tell you. See more »

Trivia:

Married Idina Menzel at the same Jamacian resort where How Stella Got Her Groove Back (1998) was filmed. See more »
