The Couple Tied the Knot in 2005

Robert and Susan met during the making of the 2003 film Gothika, which was produced by the latter. After turning him down twice, Susan finally agreed to date the star. Talking about their first meeting, the 48 year old producer had said, “We were up in Montreal prepping for Gothika, and we had lunch with the director and Halle Berry. Everybody else ordered Japanese, but Robert told us how oatmeal was the ‘superfood.’”

“He brought his own packets of oatmeal to have at lunch. And he had this box of various herbs and stuff. And then he started doing these yoga moves. I mean, he was interesting but weird,” she added.

The two soon fell in love and got married in 2005. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Exton Elias, in February 2012 and then a daughter, Avri Roel, in November 2014.

Susan helped Robert in his Battle Against Drug Addiction

The star was going through a tough time when he met Susan. He was struggling with severe drug addiction and almost killed himself more than once. He was also taken to prison for some time also but eventually won over his addiction.

In a number of interviews, Robert has revealed that it was Susan’s support and determination that helped him overcome the tough phase, which saved his life. She had stayed away from drugs all her life and made sure that the actor did so too. 

Talking about the experience, Robert had said, “I guess the only way to explain it is that I’ve become more like her. I’m still trying to figure out what happened. Whatever I was hungry for when I met Susan, I couldn’t have known how much more satisfying what I got would be.”

We wish Robert and Susan many more years of togetherness! Stay tuned for more news and updates.
