Matthew Fox Has Intense Fights With Wife

Matthew Fox Has Intense Fights With Wife

Speed Racer star Matthew Fox is featured in the latest issue of Men’s Health. The 41-year-old actor talks about his new live action film, being a father and his six-step plan to mastering any new skill. Here are some interview highlights:

On fatherhood: “Speed Racer is about the importance of family and the adversarial relationships within them. My father was hard on me in a positive way. There’s a fine line between demanding and abusive. If he was demanding of me, he demanded that much more from himself.”

On curiosity: “Curiosity is an incredible part of having a fulfilling and satisfying life. I feel sad for people who have lost their curiosity. I recently met Susan Sarandon and William Hurt, both of whom I admire. I was stunned about how curious they are about people and life in general.”

On heroism:”We didn’t want Jack Shephard [Fox's character on Lost] to be a classic archetype of a hero, riding in to save the day. People aren’t that way. That’s just an antiquated idea of heroism. People have flaws, and heroism comes from rising above those flaws.”

On perspective: “Opposing viewpoints all boil down to perspective. Understanding this has made me better at dealing with them. It’s amazing how many people walk around in this world thinking their way is the right way and the only way. That’s pretty dangerous and pretty unforgivable.”

On conflict: “My wife and I have very intense fights, but they’re over in 10 minutes. We don’t hold on to stuff. Life’s too short for that. The more you’re conscious of this, the easier it is to reach across the aisle and say, ‘I’m sorry we got here. What are you seeing? How can we fix this?’”

Catch Matthew Fox as Racer X (Speed’s rival) in theaters on Friday, May 9. For the full interview and video footage of Foxy’s cover photo shoot, visit

    Mmmmm. Paging Dr. McFoxy! You can fight with me anytime!

  • Rae

    He is probably such a snotty asshole (I usually think he’s probably like the male Gwyneth Paltrow) but I love him anyway. And he’s been looking really good at the Speed Racer photo calls recently.

  • buckeyegurl

  • sara

  • michelle

  • elodie

    Love him!!!so hot!!

  • og

    It’s amazing how he resurrected his career from Party of Five.

  • hypocrite

    HIs “personality” leaves a bad taste in my mouth. This guy thinks he is the bread and butter – yet everyone knows that he has no charisma and has no charm. Lifeless. Uses curse words to make a point therefore he is just an idiot.

  • Templeton the Rat

    He’s aged really well.

  • Danz

    Forget Matthew Fox, I wanna see some posts on Josh Holloway. That is pure hotness right there.

  • gertiebeth

    Thanks Jared! Way to spread the Foxy love…

  • Jason1

    HIs “personality” leaves a bad taste in my mouth. This guy thinks he is the bread and butter – yet everyone knows that he has no charisma and has no charm.some mention a news on a site, caters to successful and rich women seeking handsome and charming men. there are a lot of charming men joining in the site to find their real love.

  • Dani

    Aaaaah that man is beyond hotness. Can’t wait to see the new LOST eppy,

    It makes me laugh at how some of you guys put so much energy into ranting about him, get a life. If you don’t like him don’t read about him. Geez I don’t know…..guys like you really annoy the hell outta me.

  • MovieWatcher

    I always Liked Racer X better than Speed

  • tiffany

    Agreed Dani. How much longer am I going to have to read Hypocrites “jealousy” over Matthew Fox during his rants? Hey hypocrite, if you want to be a big shot, why don’t you do it somewhere else so that most of us don’t have to read your bs on everything related to Matthew Fox? :)

  • Amy

    I think that anyone that goes skinny dipping with their friends can’t possibly be a snob. i don’t see him as being the snobby hypocrite type. And I absolutely love Matthew Fox I can’t wait for season 5 of Lost. Screw all you jealous losers!!

  • midnight_girl

    “Intense fights” and still married after almost 20 years. That’s a real marriage and they’re so cute together.
    And he’s such a honest and nice guy. And of course, the sexiest man alive!
    Love him.

  • Jennifer

    Met Matt recently, spent some time talking with him. He is cheap, expects people to cater to his every whim and makes no effort to hide his lust for other women from his wife. Arrogant as hell, although he was quite nice to me… seemed like he wanted something…

  • noelle

    his wife is not pretty he should buy her new teeth poor woman.

  • sarah



  • Wow

    Ew, I met this guy a month ago. He tries to be funny, but he really isn’t. This guy is dirt.

  • Wow

    He’s hot but he’s a bitch.


    I hate him now. I used to love him as Jack on Lost.
