“The story is not true, and I’m not going to comment [further] on it,” says Matthew, who has been with his wife Margherita for 23 years.
Calling her his “best friend” and “the love of my life,” the 43-year-old actor explains what makes their relationship work.
“We have managed to both be intensely independent and maintain that strength in our relationship,” he says. “I am a man, and I am an appreciator of women. At the same time, Margherita is the s—. I can honestly say we’re good together.”
After having spent the past several years living in Hawaii, the couple, who are parents to kids Kyle, 12, and Byron, 9, look forward to making a new home in Oregon when Lost ends its run later this year.
While he admits that “it will be hard for the kids to leave their friends in Hawaii,” the former Party of Five star says he can’t wait to live closer to his family on the West coast.
“I miss having four seasons,” he says. “My brothers are two of my closest friends in the world. I want to spend time with them and my mother while I can. I want our two kids to be close to their first cousins.”
