British comedian John Cleese has married for the fourth time. This time around he has wed a woman thirty one years younger than he is. Former Monty Python’s seventy two had exchanged vows quietly to Jennifer Wade who is just forty one in a romantic ceremony on the Caribbean island of Mustique. Opening up about the recent nuptials in Britain’s Hello! magazine,
“I knew from the moment I met her that this could be something very serious.”
The actor also reveals he,
”fought back tears” as they exchanged vows before a Methodist minister in a private villa.
Cleese, who was forced to hand over $12.8 million (£8 million) in cash and assets to Alice Faye Eichelberger, his third wife of 16 years, following their 2008 split, says,
”I never felt there was anything wrong with the institution of marriage – the only thing wrong was my ability to choose the right person.
“I couldn’t imagine being with anyone other than Jenny now. And, with my record, that’s a pretty remarkable thing to say.”
His new wife adds,
”We’re kindred spirits. When people see us together, they immediately get it.”
Cleese had met the jewelery designer back in 2009, the couple were introduced by friends.
