FAVORITE ROMANTIC MOVIE
"Bridges of Madison County. I cried! Just the idea that some people settle because they don't think there's true love out there. Don't settle. Find your true love."

"Cutting wood all day" on his 16-acre rural property near Ottawa, says Beach, who was (raised on a Saulteaux Indian reservation in Canada and heads north almost every weekend from SVU's New Jersey set. "I enjoy my workout in the outdoors."

"I don't drink, don't smoke, don't do drugs. I'm kind of square. But that's being responsible," says Beach, dad to Noah, 11, and Luke, 9, from a previous marriage. "I have two children who need to learn from their father."
