"It's great to have a nice career. It's what I wanted to do since I was 8 years old. [But fatherhood] completes me. I've been married one time and I have one daughter, who I love more than anyone in the world. And that's where my world is."

Sam cherishes time spent with his daughter, and the actor has shared a hobby with her that he inherited from his own father. The duo frequently strolls along the beach near their home, collecting intriguing rocks as keepsakes.

Sam fondly recalls participating in the same activity with his father, stating with pride, "My dad was a rock hound, I'm a rock hound, my daughter is now a rock hound." While rock hunting is a beloved pastime they share, Sam primarily relishes the moments spent together with his daughter.

A distressing incident, which occurred nearly 12 years ago when Cleo was 26, further strained their relationship. Cleo lost control and threatened her mother, allegedly telling her, "I want to kill you," while following her around the house.

As Katherine attempted to call the police, Cleo cut the phone cord with scissors and brandished the weapon, reportedly stabbing her mother in the right arm six times. After the episode, Katherine obtained a restraining order against her daughter, preventing Cleo from coming within 100 yards of Katherine's home, workplace, or vehicle. Neither party publicly addressed the event, but they appear to have reconciled since then. Cleo attended the 2019 Oscars with her family, posing for pictures alongside her parents.
