"My wife [keeps me grounded]. It's the most intense friendship I've ever known, and it's been fantastic for me. Everything in my life works when that's working," he confessed.

"My relationship with my present wife is thrilling to me and I'm committed to it. But neither she nor I know what shape the future will come in. Sexual fidelity can't be the whole thing you hang your relationship on," the actor previously revealed to Mr. Porter.

In addition to the two daughters he shares with his current wife, the actor also has two children from his previous marriage to Uma Thurman, Maya Ray, 16, and Levon Roan, 12. He used his interview as an opportunity to gush about fatherhood.
