Chris O'Donnell's Redbook Interview

Who doesn't love Chris O'Donnell? The happily married actor and down-to-earth father of five talked about his work and family in the June issue of Redbook, which hits stands on May 25. At the height of his career, Chris turned down the lead role in Men in Black to focus on family. He said:

Do you find men who make career concessions to benefit their families more attractive?
