Cleese marries for fourth time13/08/2012 - 08:54:42
Monty Python funnyman John Cleese has tied the knot for a fourth time, marrying a woman three decades his junior.
The 72-year-old, who also starred in the hit sitcom Fawlty Towers, wed Jennifer Wade, 41, on the island of Mustique.
Cleese, who signed a deal with Hello! magazine, said: “I couldn’t imagine being with anyone but Jenny. And with my record that’s a remarkable thing to say.”
His new wife is a jewellery designer from Bath. Cleese has previously been married to Connie Booth, Barbara Trentham and Alice Faye Eichelberger who are all from the US.
Cleese’s divorce from Eichelberger was a famously expensive one, costing him £12 million. He subsequently launched his first solo comedy shows which he named the Alimony Tour.
The comic and actor, who starred in movies such as A Fish Called Wanda, told Hello!: “I never felt there was anything wrong with the institution of marriage - it was my ability to choose the right person.”
His bride said: “We’re kindred spirits. When people see is together, they immediately get it.”
