It's been often said, The person who laughs a lot is also quite sad in real life. It couldn't be more rightfully said as two years back, Anthony's wife of 20-years, left him and filed for divorce. 

The situation was too much to handle for the comedian, and to be honest if you're together with your girlfriend/boyfriend for many years then you'll face the same kind of stress just like he felt.

The pair started dating during their High School day and tied the knot in September 1995. But in 2014, the pair separated due to irreconcilable difference.

In 2017, the pair made their first appearance and walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards together. Fans were joyous to see their favorite actor together with his wife.
