"I'm happy that he's getting married, this kind of wandering guy, who, you know, has been in and out of relationships ever since he split with his wife Marcia. I have never seen him so happy. I know he's got a lot of money now, but even beyond that, he's a happy person," producer Sid Ganis told the Hollywood Reporter.
