ACTOR John Corbett and actress Bo Derek have been together for two decades and are finally married.
Who is John Corbett’s wife Bo Derek?
Corbett told Jerry O’Connell on Tuesday, “Around Christmas time we got married. Bo and I got married.”
“This is probably the first time, you know, we’re pretty private people,” the Sex and the City actor added.
“We didn’t make an announcement. All our friends and family knew.”
The couple has been together since 2002. Bo is an actress known for her role in 10, Tarzan, the Ape Man, and Tommy Boy.
Derek, whose birth name was Mary Cathleen Collins, was born in California and was previously with an actor named John Derek, who was 30 years her senior.
Their relationship was controversial and they moved to Germany, where he wouldn’t be tried for statutory rape laws since Derek was under the age of consent.
Has Bo Derek been married before?
The actress and her first husband John Derek were married on June 10, 1976. She was just 19 years old at the time, and he was 49, USA TODAY reported.
She starred in several movies directed by her first husband, often in rather risqué roles where she was put into revealing positions and showed off her body.
The couple stayed together until his death from heart failure in 1998.
When did Bo Derek and John Corbett get together?
Derek and Corbett got together a few years after the death of her first husband.
They’ve been together since 2002 and lived on a ranch in Santa Barbara, California for nearly two decades before getting married.
A representative for Derek confirmed to USA TODAY the couple “were married late last year in a private ceremony.”
“We didn’t want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated,” Corbett said on The Talk.
“And we thought, let’s get one nice thing out of it.”
Derek once told Entertainment Tonight that getting married wasn’t really on the agenda for the longtime couple.
“It’s not really a conscious decision not to,” Derek said in September 2020.
“It’s just at our age we’re not going to have children: we’re not building a new family together that this is important to a family tree.”
“So, for us, it would just be a piece of paper.”
How old is Bo Derek?
Derek is now 64 years old.
Corbett is four years her junior at age 60.
In August 2020, the actress told USA TODAY of her now-husband, “He makes me laugh all the time.”
“He’s full of life, full of joy: I became attracted to him and I still am. We take things day by day and I think we are still there.”
