Jennifer Arnott and Dennehy
The veteran actor did not talk much about his past relationships. He once joked to Columbia College Today that he and Arnott lived on a farm in “the unfashionable part” of Connecticut. “My neighbours have refrigerators on their porches, wear camouflage and drive pick-ups,” he told the publication. “There is not an espresso machine within 50 miles, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Big Bird is the other celebrity in the area, and as far as I’m concerned he’s No. 1.”
When he was younger, Dennehy once said that focusing on women and drink was something he used to do when he was a
self-described “functional alcoholic.” He would also hire a chauffeur to take him and his friends to bars on St. Patricks Day. “Invariably we would wind up with the driver drunk and someone else having to drive,” he said. “But that was in my callow youth, which is long gone.”
“I have an obsessive personality,” he told Life magazine in 1990, as noted by Columbia College Today. “With one substance or another, I can go from Stage A to stage F in addiction in about a week and a half.” The actor once told the New York Times that he didn’t throw “Your typical L.A. parties, where everyone sips a little wine and goes home at 10 o’clock. At my parties, the sheriff’s department comes three or four times a night.”
