Owen Wilson’s mother Laura Cunningham Wilson tied the knot twice. The Loki star appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on February 11 and revealed that his mother remarried when she was 80.

The actor also revealed himself as being somewhat of romantic himself. While talking about his new romantic comedy film Marry Me, where he appears alongside Jennifer Lopez, he said:

“My mom recently got married at age 80 to a very nice guy. I think that’s a very romantic story and the idea that you can find love at any age. I think that’s a very nice story.”
