Biography and Age

John Arthur Lithgow was born on October 19, 1945 in Rochester, NY. Lithgow was born into a talented family. His mom was an actress, and his father was a theater producer. When he was a youngster, Lithgow's family moved to Ohio, where his father produced neighborhood Shakespeare celebrations.

Marriage, Wife and Kids

Lithgow's first spouse, Jean Taynton, left him following 14 years of marriage in 1980 because of John being unfaithful with actress Liv Ullmann. Subsequent to causing the rot of his marriage, Lithgow promised he'd never get married again, however, destiny interceded. In 1981, John got married to Mary Yeager.

Af first, it appeared to be far-fetched that John and Mary could develop a relationship together, however, Lithgow fell head over heels for her. After very nearly 40 years together, the star actor says he's the least happy when they're apart, which sadly happens frequently. Mary is a professor at UCLA, while John's work takes him around the globe. The couple shares two children together.
