Actress Tia Mowry frequently discusses her family, but we rarely hear from her husband, Cory Hadrict. However, while promoting his new film, American Sniper, the actor stopped by to visit Global Grind’s Blogxilla. During their chat, he revealed that he was broke when he met his wife and praised his wife for her ability to see beyond his circumstances at the time.
“I had odd jobs. I worked at K-Mart, graveyard shift, security. That’s when I was just grinding man. I met my wife during them days. She was with me. She was just coming out of “Sister, Sister,” but they had everything man and I didn’t have anything. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in the corner, no furniture for almost two years.”
Of course, we love to hear the adorable stories of how couples met. For Cory and Tia, the lovebirds crossed paths while he was standing at a bus stop one day.
“I was waiting on a bus stop—after I shot my first film. Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started. We were friends, we started dating and it just went from there.”
He went on to reflect on his wife’s ability to look beyond his situation at the time and see his potential.
“I think it was what my wife saw in me. She saw an honest man who had a dream. I just had a vision, man. I didn’t come in selling no games,” the actor explained. “I feel like a man can just hold his own and be a man. I don’t have to play no games with nobody and she respected that and it was what it was.”
