The couple, who met while filming a never-broadcast TV pilot called Heat Vision and Jack, tied the knot in May 2000 at an oceanfront ceremony in Kauai, Hawaii.

The two welcomed daughter Ella Olivia in April 2002 and son Quinlin Dempsey in July 2005.

“It’s the best. I mean, I think that you know, the reality is there’s such an unspoken connection. I feel like for us when we first met, it was on set… He’s amazing.”

Stiller agreed,

“I say that’s the secret to a happy marriage anywhere in any city, not just Hollywood. I think you got to laugh, because after a while, you know, life is life. We all have to deal with what life throws at us, so you got to have a sense of humor about it. If you can share that, at the end, it makes a huge difference.”

Ben’s Cancer Experience

In November 2016, Stiller revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years earlier. Fortunately, he recovered, and he interviewed after he battled cancer saying,

“It came out of the blue for me. I had no idea. At first, I didn’t know what was gonna happen. I was scared. It just stopped everything in your life because you can’t plan for a movie because you don’t know what’s gonna happen.”

“As I learned more about my disease (one of the key learnings is not to Google ‘people who died of prostate cancer’ immediately after being diagnosed with prostate cancer), I was able to wrap my head around the fact that I was incredibly fortunate. Fortunate because my cancer was detected early enough to treat. And also because my internist gave me a test he didn’t have to.”
