DUBAI: Iranian-American actor Sam Asghari has opened up about his marriage to pop superstar Britney Spears in his first interview since they married in June.
The actor and dancer appeared on “Good Morning America” in a segment that aired Wednesday to promote his movie, “Hot Seat.”
“The husband thing hasn’t hit me yet,” Asghari said, before discussing marriage and saying, “It was way too late for us. We imagined this thing to be out of a fairy tale, and it was. And we wanted to celebrate with, you know, our loved ones, our loved ones. We just wanted to celebrate, and that’s what we did.
Until November 2021, Spears was under guardianship, which was managed by her estranged father Jamie Spears, and was unable to marry.
After the conservatorship ended, the couple tied the knot on June 9 in an intimate ceremony at their Los Angeles home. Guests included Madonna, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton and Donatella Versace.
The up-and-coming actor stars in the movie “Hot Seat,” in which he plays a SWAT team officer alongside Shannen Doherty, Kevin Dillon and Mel Gibson.
“My wife gave me, like, this amazing platform to work with,” he said. “So I’m still grateful for that. And I’m still very grateful for that. I don’t take any opportunity that I take for granted and I really try to stay positive with everything that’s going on.
They started dating in 2016 after meeting on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video.
