The actor spoke of how his future spouse shouldn’t have to put on tons of makeup or clothes or jewelry in order to look gorgeous.
He listed a sense of humor as his #1 priority and also mentioned that his wife ought to be skilled in interpersonal capabilities. He also said that working in tandem like a pair of partners at a match was how a husband and wife should behave like.
