Mark and Rhea began dating in 2001 and were married on August 1, 2009 in Beverly Hills; they are parents to four children: sons Michael, 15, and Brendan, 12, and daughters Ella, 17, and Grace, 11.

In 2018, Mark spoke about his relationship with Rhea: ‘I owe a lot to my wife. She has helped me become the man I am and has created a beautiful life for me and my children,” he said The sun.

“I also knew that she loved me for who I am and that she was someone I could trust. Until I met her, I wasn’t ready to start a family,” he added.

“You need the right woman in your life and that feeling that you’ll be together for a long time,” he told the outlet.

‘That’s especially important if you’re going to have children. Rhea always wanted to be a mother. She had a job, but her mission in life was to be a mother and wife. We share the same values. The physical attraction was clearly there, but that’s not what keeps a couple together,” said Mark.

Last month, Mark revealed on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon that he regretted committing to an 11,000-calorie-a-day diet to quickly shed the pounds for his new movie Stu.

“Unfortunately, I had to take in 7,000 calories for two weeks and then 11,000 calories for another two weeks. And it was fun for about an hour.’

He gained the weight in three weeks to play the real boxer turned priest Stuart Long.

“It’s so hard, physically, to do. Losing weight, you just have to struggle a little – you just don’t eat and exercise.’

And this, even if you’re full, I’d wake up after a meal and take another meal. I ate every three hours. It wasn’t fun,’ he told Jimmy.

Fallon added how much harder it gets to lose extra weight after a certain age, which Mark agreed.

“Yes, absolutely,” said the Oscar nominee.

‘Once the metabolism slows down, it gets really difficult.

“I’ve been trying to get this movie made for six years, we only had 30 days to shoot it, so I really wanted to make it happen.”

‘And I was also crazy that I financed a lot myself. So I knew I was sitting on a ticking clock on my own dime, and you get things done pretty quickly.”

Mark was much more enthusiastic, but surrendered at the beginning of the process.

Speaking about his extreme diet in April, the Ted actor said, “They want me to do it as healthily as possible.”

“I’m like, ‘Dude, I’ve been on such a regimen for so long, I just want to eat everything in sight.”

“I want to go to bakeries, I want to go to Denny’s, I want to get pancakes. I want to get everything I can get my hands on.’
