How did Mark and Rhea meet?

Sometime in 2001, Mark and Rhea encountered each other when the former came to New York City for a press junket.

The Oscar nominee recalled to PEOPLE: "I asked her if she wanted to come out with me, and she said yes.

"Then, I asked her if she wanted to come to church with me the next morning, and she said yes again.

"So that was our first date, St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York.

"I knew shortly after that she was the one but I still had to make sure that I was able to be the man I needed to be."

Shortly after, the pair started dating and remained together for almost eight years before walking down the aisle.
