The 43 years old Dictator star Jason Mantzoukas had stated in several of his former interviews that he is in no hurry to get married. He is even said to have claimed that he could spend his entire forties without getting married. The actor’s plan to enjoy the freedom of single life through his forties is reportedly meeting its unlikely end.
New reports confirm that the actor is getting pressurized to get married and that pressure is coming from his own family. It is no secret that Mantzoukas is very close to his parents and takes their advice very seriously. So, the time when the actor finally settles down with a girl may be not far away. There are no known reports about his girlfriend yet, so the identity of the person who could be his wife is still a mystery.
Mantzoukas is of Greek descent.
“His parents are pressuring him to have a child. He is already 43 years old. Traditionally, in Greece, by this age people have gotten married, had children and are starting to plan their retirement. Mantzoukas parents also want the same for him. They want him to follow the traditional Greek culture”, a source close to the actor revealed to our sources.
Despite his parent’s pressure, it is reported that the actor has not changed his original plan. Close friend of the actor suggest that the actor has no plans of settling down and having children before reaching the peak of his career.
Mantzoukas started performing improvisational comedy while attending Middlebury College in Vermont. After finishing college, he moved to New York in 1998. He started performing comedy regularly at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, which laid the foundation for his mainstream success. In 2004, he landed a role in Terrorists as John Stevens, which was his first on screen role.
Mantzoukas is best known for the performance he gave on the 2012 comedy movie The Dictator as Nadal. His performance in the movie was very well received by critics and fans alike. He has also acted in several other commercially successful movies and TV shows like Dirty Grandpa, Neighbors and The League.
Mantzoukas considers being able to make people laugh the best part of his job. Sources close to him claim that the actor Mantzoukas finds happiness in making other people laugh. So, it is no surprise that he still performs stand up acts in small bars and pubs to make people laugh, despite his status as a global star.
The actor is not active in any social media platforms. The actor reportedly considers social media a “colossal waste of time”. He believes that there are millions of better ways to spend his time than on social media. This is considered to be pretty odd because many of his fans want to see him active in social media.
His net worth is estimated to be close to $500 thousand dollars.
