Good Doctor actor Freddie Highmore, 29, reveals he secretly wed

Freddie Highmore, 29, reveals he secretly wed his ‘wonderful’ British girlfriend but won’t ‘express his excitement’ like Tom Cruise did with Katie Holmes


Freddie Highmore got married in secret earlier this year.

The 29-year-old star made the confession during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, when the host noticed a ring on his finger.

‘Yes, it is a wedding ring. Yes, I got married. It’s funny ever since I’ve been wearing this ring people have been asking me if I’m married, so I figured, I should clarify it,’ said The Good Doctor actor.

The star from Camden Town, London, did not reveal the identity of his wife, but confirmed that she is a fellow Brit.

He dated Sarah Bolger from 2006 until 2009, Dakota Fanning in 2009 and Abigail Breslin from 2016 until 2017. 

Freddie also refused to get overly excited about his marriage, despite being on an American talk show, in an apparent nod to when Tom Cruise professed his love for Katie Holmes on The Oprah Winfrey show.

He said: ‘I’m not gonna jump up and down on the couch on the talk show and express my excitement that way. I know that you do that in America.

‘But I’m as happy as a Brit can be and I’m married to a very wonderful woman now, so yes I feel very happy.’

The movie star also noted that he does not understand the terminology of marriage, worrying that it can sound too ‘possessive’.

He explained: ‘I just still can’t get over the terminology and the vocab, like a “married man” just sounds very old and “my wife” sounds very possessive. We don’t really use that yet, but we just point to the rings and be like, “Here, look, draw your own conclusions.”‘

Asked how he feels about being called a husband, he added: ‘That sounds a little bit better. It’s just the ‘my wife.”

Jimmy responded by telling Freddie to ‘loosen up’ a bit.

The actor then replied: ‘It’s still early days. Thank you for the tips!’
