How did Mark Ruffalo meet Sunrise Coigney?
The pair are ridiculously in love and make frequent appearances at events and parties. But how the two met is also an interesting story worth knowing. The two have been married since 2000, about the time Ruffalo's career took off.
They now have three gorgeous kids, and according to 'Bustle,' they live on a farm in New York. Watching them walk the red carpet, holding hands and clearly being very into each other, many of their fans wonder how they met.
Ruffalo said in an interview, it's something of a redemption tale — with her in the role of the redeemer and he the redeemed. Ruffalo and Coigney met in 1998 on the street, according to his interview, "I was living in a dump and didn’t even have a driver’s license or a credit card. She thought I was a mess, but she believed in me and kept encouraging me," Ruffalo said. He also added that there was the slight issue that one of his friends was interested in her, but Ruffalo didn't let that stop him. "I saw her and was like, I'm going to marry that girl," he said.
Coigney turned down his first proposal, but the two ultimately got hitched.
They have managed to raise a large family and that's especially impressive in light of the personal tragedy that has struck them not once but twice. First, Ruffalo was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2001, weeks before Keen was born. Not wanting to stress Coigney out, he kept the news to himself, he revealed in an interview The tumor turned out to be benign, but Ruffalo called it " the worst experience of my life. I was so sure I was going to die that I recorded a video for my son so he could know who his dad was," Then in 2008, Ruffalo's younger brother, Scott Ruffalo, a popular hair stylist in Beverly Hills, was murdered in his apartment.
He coped in part by moving his family from Hollywood to upstate New York, where they already spent the summers. "Sunny and I were looking at each other like, It's good to get to know you again, we're so happy here," he told. They later packed up their L.A. life and settled on their farm. It seems like that's how they approach their marriage in general, evaluating their priorities.
In an interview with Julia Roberts, he said, "Sunny and my friendship-slash-marriage-slash-love affair is... changing and growing along the way. Honestly, it hasn't been without its difficulties, its shortcomings; it hasn't been without joy or learning or developing."
