The 40-year-old actor and his wife Iva have been married for 16 years. During a recent interview, he reacts to some who are not a fan of him being married to a white woman:





I love my [African-American] sisters. People always go, ‘Man that’s his type.’ If somebody caught a sista walking around with a 6’7? brother, is that her type? Next week you see her walking with a short guy or Spanish guy — do we have to have a type? I’m a human being. I look at people for character and what’s inside. Physically — that’s one thing — but you gotta be on the same page. I met my wife when I was struggling in grad school. She stuck with me for 16 years. It’s a long ways! She was with me and she’s held me up many times, and I’ve held her up before.

He continued,

People don’t understand [that] when it comes to being with somebody long term, it’s way more than skin color that’s gonna make it work. Love is love.
