Bleu plays Marco, a professional athlete who agrees to do a reality show to stay relevant after an injury puts an end to his sports career. Bleu told fans how to spot his wife in the movie. “When Marco offers her the heart and she storms off, that’s my wife,” he told Fan Sided.
“Love, For Real” explores the world of reality dating shows. The characters in the film find love in unexpected ways and places. If anyone understands what that’s like, it’s Bleu.
“You never know when you’re going to meet your person. My wife and I met in the grocery store. So it was very random and it was fate,” he told Fan Sided.
Bleu’s Wife is Also an Actor
Bleu’s wife, Sasha Clements, is also in showbiz. Her credits include the Disney Channel movie “How to Build a Better Boy” and “Degrassi: Don’t Look Back.”
Clements and Bleu tied the knot in 2016. In an interview on “Live With Kelly“, Bleu admitted that his vows got a little…PG-13. The couple wrote their own vows, and Bleu was only thinking of his beautiful wife-to-be when he wrote them, forgetting that Clements’ family would hear the entire thing.
“I said, I vow to pleasure you,” Bleu told Kelly Ripa, eliciting a roar of laughter from the studio audience.
