After two decades in showbiz, Chris O’Donnell still has his feet on the ground. The current NCIS: Los Angeles actor, who became a true Hollywood hunk after starring in 1995’s Mad Love opposite Drew Barrymore, would rather spend a night at home with his wife and children than walk the red carpet. “Family is my number-one priority. I can’t handle being away that long. The highs are so high in this business, and the lows are so low, but you know at the end of the day you see those beautiful kids, and nothing else matters,” Chris told In Touch about his wife, Caroline and their five children before he was honored at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Males of 2010 Awards in New York on March 1. With a red-hot career and a full house, how does the actor keep the sparks alive with his wife of 12 years? “It’s really important to just keep a date night and make time for one another,” he added.
