At 57, with a happy family, popularity, and a stable paying job, it would not be easy to believe this individual once had it rough. The actor was fired from a show because he refused to cheat on his spouse by playing a sexual scene.

To the actor, it was not a compliment, so he turned to walk away. However, she stopped him with words, noticing the nationality. This birthed a connection, and the pair became husband and wife three years later.

Whether it is a story surrounding the undying love for the spouse or a movie feature, this actor has a way of infusing love life into it.

This exceptional person with a love for family, religion, and career, who shows that he would never sacrifice the first two for fame or fortune is no other than Neal McDonough. For McDonough, having a great family and God’s approval are all needs.

He Refused to Cheat on His Wife

The acceptance of the Catholic faith started at a young age when McDonough refused to join the bandwagon of teenagers displaying troubling behavioral patterns from days in high school.

Although not easy, he pulled through and never strayed from faith. Years later, after creating his acting portfolio while getting ready to take the world by storm, McDonough went through a tough time with his beliefs.

The ABC sitcom’s “Scoundrels” producers wanted him to kiss a woman on-screen because it was part of the script and would be suitable for their rating. He refused, stating he was not comfortable with the idea and considered it cheating on his spouse.

The excuses did not concern the network as they fired and blackballed him. He lost his mansion in Los Angeles and was jobless for two years. It also affected self-confidence, but he remained rooted in belief. Decades after the disappointment, he told the audience at a Catholic Conference:

“I was really crushed. They thought that I was some religious zealot, but to me, it was just that I didn’t think it was the right thing to do. And also I really love my wife. These lips are meant for one woman.”
