The 38-year-old Venom actor revealed the big news that he had gotten secretly married in a recent interview on Louis Theroux‘s Grounded podcast.
Riz shared that the marriage was very new to him and he and Fatima
While he didn’t reveal her name on the podcast, Riz did open up about her identity on The Tonight Show.
“It’s a weird one, isn’t it?” he shared on the program. “I guess because we live in a social media age, if you don’t get on the megaphone about stuff, it’s like it’s a secret? But I never know how much is oversharing.”
Riz did share how he and Fatima met.
“We just both sat down at the same table in a café, where we both turned up to write,” he remembered. “We were both jostling over the same laptop plug points, like a very modern way of meeting. And we struck up a friendship, and then we reconnected down the line. But it’s weirdly one of the many things about preparing for this role that was so special. It just brought a lot of goodness into my life.”
Fatima is the author of the best selling book, “A Place For Us”. She’s pictured at a event to promote the book with Sarah Jessica Parker below.
