Evans Left Hollywood To Save His Marriage

British comic LEE EVANS was forced to return from his two-year stint in Hollywood to salvage his marriage.
Evans shot to international fame with roles in a string of hit comedies including 1997's Mousehunt and There's Something About Mary with Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz, a year later (98).
But the funnyman decided to give up his movie career and move back to his native U.K. - after he found his relationship with his wife Heather and their daughter, Mollie, was suffering.
He says, "I spent two years working out there with them at home and I can't do it. Los Angeles is such a lonely place, too. It is full of people that talk bulls**t, I quickly found that out. I'm not an actor - I'm a stand-up comedian."
