Mario Cantone Marries Boyfriend After Twenty Years As A Couple

Mario Cantone might’ve married Sanford Blatch (Willie Garson) in the cinematic abortion known as Sex and the City II, but the actor/comedian just got hitched in real life to his boyfriend, theater actor/director Jerry Dixon, in New York City. The raspy-voiced funny man shared the good news Friday on—where else?—The View.

People magazine reports:

“I got married for the same reasons you did,” the Sex and the City actor, 51, tells fellow newlywed Joy Behar on the show. “We’re older now. We’ve been together 20 years. After 20 years you’re like, ‘Thanks for the anti-climactic honeymoon, government!’” Cantone says their wedding was officiated by pastor Jay Bakker, the son of the late Tammy Faye Bakker Messner. “It was beautiful, just my family there,” Cantone says, adding of his new husband: “I love him. He’s a good man.”

Please tell us they didn’t have Liza sing at the ceremony!
