Martin Sheen Celebrates 83rd Birthday with Wife Who Helped Him Heal & Raised Their Kids in His ‘Favorite Place in the World’

Actor Martin Sheen and his beloved wife, Janet Sheen, have been married for 61 years. They tied the knot on December 23, 1961. They have since started a family and have been blessed with grandchildren.

In a November 2016 interview, Martin reflected on his marriage and on a period when his health declined and his spouse was there for him. He credits her for pulling through his several health scares.Martin revealed that when he was 37 years old, he suffered a heart attack while filming Francis Ford Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now,” in the Philippines.

The three-time Emmy Award winner recounted struggling to make it to the hospital because they were shooting the film in a remote area at the time.

“My wife, Janet, was running down the corridor, and I was on a gurney being wheeled in, and I looked up and saw her face. She leaned down and whispered, ‘It’s only a movie, babe. Please, it’s only a movie!’” the movie star recalled.

Those words have stuck with him over the years and have helped him face difficult times. In December 2015, the veteran star, who turned 83 on August 3, 2023, underwent quadruple-bypass heart surgery.

It was his spouse Janet once again, who helped him heal. Always by his side, she made him laugh throughout the ordeal, and he divulged what she said to him:

“It was very serious, and she handled it like a pro. […] She said, ‘Don’t take yourself so seriously.’”
