The also Lincoln star also let it out that his oldest son believe that his career was in construction. Speaking to The Mirror, he said:
“They didn’t even know what I was doing until a couple of years ago.
“In fact, my 14-year-old boy was asked what I did and he said, ‘I think he’s in construction’. That’s how much they know!”
The fifty five year old has also described his parenting style as “old-fashioned” and expresses that he tries to teach his children the same values that his parents have passed onto him during his life.
