Jason Bateman Married, Wife

After winning the SAG Award earlier this year in January, Jason opened up that his wife keeps him grounded. Talking to the reporters in the SAG press room, he said,
“She’s got a full-time career herself, and she’s able to be a full-time mom, and she’s almost a fulll-time dad too. I’m just floored by that. So that keeps me grounded. That reminds me that I’ve got a real strong example to live up to.”
Amanda was also the one who helped him quit drinking. Back in 2012, he said,
“Meeting my wife Amanda was the best thing that could ever have happened to me. She wasn't going to let me screw around my life anymore, so I stopped drinking and started behaving like a decent human being.”
