While talking to the drivers, the Young Hollywood asked Johnson to share his advice with Elliott on how to handle women. As a response to this, Johnson merely nodded his head with pursed lip, followed by a single-word reply – “Yes.” This sent the host and Elliott into a burst of laughter. In fact, Chase pointed out Johnson and simply said, “Married… And wants to stay that way.”

But this was not all. Johnson explained that he doesn’t have much to say to Elliott on the topic. He said, ” If I felt like it (a relationship) could be a distraction for him, I would definitely jump in the middle of it. But after knowing him for so many years, I mean he knows how to manage his personal life, his professional life.”

I don’t see that happening.” Agreeing with Johnson’s explanation, Elliott said that he hopes his relationship(s) never lead him down the wrong road. He said, “I hope not. We’ll hope not. So, he does have that side figured out too. He’s got about all of it figured out. So, it’s impressive.”
