"The real core is my wife knows that I'm very much in love with her," he goes on. "She may get angry and say, 'You better learn -- quick,' but she knows -- and I'm trying."
Holloway maintains his remarks were just an attempt to be devilishly charming like his bad-boy Sawyer character on "Lost." "It was meant innocently. The character's kind of sassy and this and that, so I try to be myself -- but kind of sassy. You don't want to hear all about 'Oh, I love my wife, and that's all I do is stare at her all day.' Well, yeah, OK, I do that, but no one wants to know exactly that. So that was a mistake, a learning process."
Meanwhile, Holloway's enjoying getting to explore the softer side of Sawyer on LOST now that he ended up with Kate (Evangeline Lilly). As he sees it, Sawyer is not a bad guy per se, "only a good guy who got hurt or wronged in his eyes enough to (create) a defense mechanism. He feels empowered by keeping people away from him and not letting anyone in, but that doesn't work on the island anymore … He's stuck facing his own demons, and his old tricks don't work now."
