Excellent timing for these “stunt” guys.
In There’s something about Mary, the scene where Stiller’s character, Ted, is dropped from the stretcher was unscripted – it was an accident. The Farrelly brothers decided it was too funny to cut, and after the crew checked out Stiller, they went ahead and kept him in the film. Another minor on-set injury was in the fight scene with Puffy, where he hits his head on a chair.
He recently reunited with his wife.
In May 2000, Stiller and actress Christine Taylor married in Kauai, Hawaii. They appeared on screen together in Zoolander, DodgeBall, Tropic Thunder, Zoolander 2, and Development stopped.
They have two children together – a daughter, Ella Olivia, born April 9, 2002, and a son, Quinlin Dempsey, born July 10, 2005, but in May 2017 they separated with plans to divorce.
At the start of the pandemic, Taylor invited Stiller to live with her again so they could both be with their two children, and they reconciled.
Stiller said, “We broke up and got back together, and we’re happy about that. It has been truly wonderful for all of us. One of the good things that came out of the pandemic. »
