Bo Derek and John Corbett have been together for 15 years without ever walking down the aisle, but the couple insisted they don’t need rings to prove their love is real.
The pair revealed to Closer Weekly Saturday the secret behind their lasting relationship has been spending quality time with each other away from Hollywood whenever possible.
“We both travel so much, so for us, our favorite vacation place is home,” explained Derek, 61. “That’s where the romance is.”
“We enjoy each other’s company; we make each other laugh,” added Corbett, 56. “After 15 years we still hold hands; we still have barbecues with friends a couple times a week. [And Bo] still laughs at all my jokes even though she’s heard them a million times. We just enjoy each other. I’m sad when she’s not around.”
However, there’s more to their bond than just keeping their romance indoors within their 10.5 acre property. Corbett, who’s still recognized by fans as Carrie Bradshaw’s boyfriend Aiden Shaw on the hit HBO series “Sex and the City,” told Fox News in August 2017 that faith has kept him grounded over the years.
“I went to Catholic school for 12 years and I was an altar boy for about seven of those years,” he explained. “I spent a lot of time behind the scenes in churches.”
In the ‘80s, he dabbled in born-again Christianity before returning to his Catholic roots.
“I have a strong belief in God,” he explained, adding he describes himself as a “gospel and brunch kind of guy.”
“Nothing says I love you Jesus more than gospel music and mashed ‘potaters.’”
