John Cleese complains that only ex-wives are around him

Actor John Cleese believes that “the planet is inhabited by his ex-spouses.” He calls his wives the greatest evil in life.


The 79-year-old actor has been married four times. From 1968 to 1978, his wife was Connie Booth, then for about ten years he was the husband of Barbara Trentham, they lived from 1981 to 1990. He then married Alice Cleese in 1992 and divorced her in 2008. Since 2012, his wife is designer Jennifer Wade. The actor has a daughter, Cynthia, from his first marriage and a daughter, Camilla, from his second wife, Barbara.

John’s three ex-wives still make him jittery by their mere appearance.

“Young couples have children and then spend 30 years caring for them,” Cleese complains. – For what, I do not know. It kind of makes you less selfish. But children are a real pain in a soft spot, they cost you a fortune. And you can never control their behavior, and they are never grateful to you. But I have a lovely daughter, and my second daughter is fine too. And the planet is inhabited by my ex-wives.

John doesn’t see much success in getting married for half a century. He is sure that many couples would have broken up if they had a choice.

“Everyone applauds when you say that someone has been married for 40 or 50 years,” he wonders. – I can say: it’s just a lack of imagination. I’ve been married for 42 years if you add all the numbers together.

Cleese has become deaf, he is hard of hearing. But this shortcoming is not so much embarrassing as it pleases.

“My deafness is progressing,” the actor explains. – It’s not a burden, on the contrary, I find it quite liberating. I smile, nod and point at my ears, thereby relieving myself of the obligation to listen to all the verbal rubbish directed at me.
