The star explained: ‘Sabrina and I, very early in our relationship I was very stressed so I had these massive anger tantrums that were like explosions.

‘She was like, “Who are you?”

‘I was always the first to say, “Hey, if you’re not happy, leave. Move.” It was kind of like a male instinct.’

The couple clash because they both have ‘strong personalities’ but the Mountain Between Us star continued that he’s trying to do better at avoiding conflict.

Idris said: ‘Sabrina and I both have strong personalities and typically it’s Sabrina who says, “Look, I don’t want to fight”.

‘I’ve been getting better at it recently but when I do it, I get nothing back. When she does it, I go, “Thank you”.’

The couple recently insisted they are in a ‘good place’ together and love working on their podcast and new lifestyle brand S’able Labs.

Sabrina said: ‘We’re newly business partners, but we’re also newlyweds. Idris is my best friend. I want to be around this guy every day of my life, so it’s really great to be able to see what that morphs into.’

And Idris added: ‘I’d say we’re in a good place. It was a challenging year, but ultimately, when you look to the side and you’ve got someone that’s been there, ride or die, that’s really comforting.’

The duo also reflected on their relationship in an interview with People, saying their marriage is ‘forever growing and changing and evolving’.

Idris explained that, how after two previous marriages: ‘I had famously said I’d never get married again and here I was about to marry Sabrina, and we really got into questioning why.’ 

After meeting Sabrina in 2017 at a Vancouver jazz bar, the actor gushed: ‘We started dating and I fell head over heels. Everyone was like, “Hey man, you seem so much happier.”

‘I didn’t realize I was, but the truth is that it really sparked a lot of conversations around how a partnership can bring out the best in you.’ 

Sabrina described their marriage as ‘forever growing and changing and evolving,’ explaining that they’re not just newly weds but also new business partners.

The couple exchanged vows at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakesh surrounded by 150 of their nearest and dearest in April 2019.  

Speaking of his decision to wed Sabrina, the British actor admitted: ‘We’ve been literally inseparable since we met. Inseparable.’

He then detailed how the former beauty queen had changed his outlook on marriage, Sabrina has deepened friendships with people I’ve known longer than [her], nurturing the best side of me to make me connect to my friends more.’
