For fifty-nine-year old Gary Oldman, amour has never come easy. Sure, he’s had a total of five marriages and a few hookups every now and then, but it seems that his ideal woman has always evaded him…up until now! His latest -and fifth wife- Gisele Schmidt may well be his last as the celebrated actor admits to finally discovering love.
Gary Oldman is an actor par excellence and his fantastic work bears ample testimony to that. That being said, the actor has had a less-than-fulfilling connubial life.
Four divorces and a host of hook-ups later he got married a fifth time in 2017. As far as one can see, he seems happy with the connubial matters stands with Gisele, his wife-number-five.
Here’s a peek into the media-elusive actor’s conjugal life over the years:
The year was 1987 when he wed his foremost partner, Leslie Manville whom he deserted -along with his then three-month-old infant son- in Britain in 1989 and came to the United States.
He then had a dalliance with Uma Thurman who consummated in marriage in October 1990. However, she jilted him saying that he was a very difficult partner to spend her life with.
It was around this time that he became the proverbial sponge and drowned himself in alcohol. He met the enigmatic Isabella Rossellini in 1992 who decreed him to either sober-up or call it quits. Though he managed to control his addiction, the two never took vows.
In the year 1996, he met Donya Fiorentino, who remained his partner until 2001. She gave him two sons but accused him of addiction and physical maltreatment. When their legal separation came about, Oldman got the children’s custody.
At this point, he sobered up and stayed away from romantic associations honoring his responsibilities for his children.
However, he fell in love once again and took Alexandra Edenborough as his wife in 2008. This marriage too fell apart in 2015.
2017 witnessed him walking the altar for the fifth time, this time with his present soul mate, Gisele Schmidt. He admits to being happy and feeling fulfilled in her company.
Here’s hoping that Oldman has finally found his
‘life partner’ and that they have many years of connubial bliss together!
