The ‘Night School’ actor made a public apology to spouse Eniko almost a year ago over his “bad error in judgment” when a former friend allegedly tried to extort him over a video of him with another woman and he is thankful the 34-year-old model has stayed by his side.
He said: “The friendship that I have with my wife is insane. Yes, that’s my wife, we’re lovers, it’s a relationship, it’s marriage…but the friendship we have is like no other.
“Our marriage has been put to the test. It’s the most difficult test ever. And, you know, sometimes those tests come from stupidity. But it’s how you handle it, and how you decide to move forward from it. I applaud my wife for just displaying a high level of strength that I can’t even explain. I applaud her for being my backbone, my support system, and more importantly, taking my life to the next level.”
And the 39-year-old star – who has son Kenzo, 10 months, with Eniko, as well as Heaven, 13, and Hendrix, 10, from his previous marriage – thinks he’s now an “amazing” husband because he’s learned to be “real and authentic” with his family.
He told People magazine: “I am amazing. I am amazing because I get it now. I’m amazing because I have no problem with being an open book, and real, and authentic. And I’m not talking about outside your home, I’m talking about inside your home. When you get to a point to where you’re that open, and you’re that understanding, and in the knowledge of one another, the word ‘friendship’ is a real word, you know, that word ‘best friend’ is a real word.”
After overcoming their problems, Kevin believes his marriage is stronger than ever.
He said: “The tests we’ve passed made us love each other even more. It made us understand our bond even more.”
The ‘Jumanji’ actor knows he has a lot to be thankful for.
He said: “The money, the entertainment, the movies, it’s great, those are blessings, but the level that I’ve reached from a happy standpoint, that woman is 100% responsible for it.”
