Mark and Marilou Hamill have been together almost 40 years, making it one of the longest and most enduring partnerships in the entertainment industry. Town and Country take a look at their marriage.
This December, Star Wars star Mark Hamill and his wife, Marilou, will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. But the longtime couple didn’t meet at a star-studded party like many Hollywood couples. Instead, they met at a dentist’s office.
According to People magazine, Marilou York was working as a dental hygienist in Westwood—and Hamill was a patient—when they met. For Mark, at least, it was lust at first sight. “She came into the waiting room in jeans, white coat, breasts like melons, looking like a Vargas painting,” he told the magazine. “I said, ‘They let you dress like that at work?’ She said, ‘Yeah. Next.’”
