As a teenager, Jack Black was very shy, and that is the reason why he couldn't ask out Tanya Haden for a date for several years. She is now his wife.

"I wish I'd had more courage to ask out Tanya Haden, the woman who eventually became my wife. We met at school at 18 and I wasted 15 years waiting for my chance," The Sun newspaper quoted Black as saying.

"She was everything I could wish for. Talented, beautiful and a wonderful performer on stage. She was part of a band called The Haden Triplets. We first worked together on a student film but we did not date," he added.

Black and Haden have two sons named Samuel and Thomas.
