If you needed another reason to like actor Actor Mahershala Ali - here's one, he doesn't cheat on his wife.

MTO News spoke with a top Hollywood insider who claims that Mahershala is one of the few Hollywood male stars who doesn't cheat. The insider explained, "Mahershala is a sweetheart, he doesn't cheat and that's rare [in Hollywood]. Women throw themselves at him and he curves everyone."

Mahershala is married to his gorgeous wife Amatus Sami-Karim, who has supported him since before the fame.

Ali has been married to wife Amatus Sami-Karim since the two met while Sami-Karim was enrolled at the Tisch School of the Arts, and have been married since 2013.

And he's got a ton of great things on the horizon. He's up for another Oscar in a few weeks, and he's starring in the new season of HBO's True Detective. He's also starring in the 2019 big budget blockbuster Alita: Battle Angel.

Mahershala already won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar last year, and that springboarded him into international stardom.

Here's him and wife Amatus at the True Detective premiere yesterday.


Mahershala Ali was nominated for the “Best Film Supporting Actor” Golden Globe for his portrayal as Doctor Don Shirley in the film “Green Book.” Ali brought home another Golden Globe in 2017 for his starring role in the hit film “Moonlight.”

“I’d like to thank the HFPA for this extraordinary honor,” said Ali in an emailed statement after his receiving his current Golden Globe nomination. “I’m humbled that all our work has been recognized in such a broad capacity, especially that of my friends Viggo Mortensen and Peter Farrelly. ‘Green Book’ offered a unique opportunity to embody a man with breadth, virtuosity and complexity. I’m so grateful that our story has resonance in a time that calls for empathy.”
