Some of them embody his late spouse, Kate, who died of breast most cancers in 2009. One particularly entails her and his present spouse, Felicity Blunt. She occurs to be the sister of Emily Blunt, certainly one of his co-stars within the Anne Hathaway-Meryl Streep dramedy concerning the interior workings of a vogue journal.
“We found out just before I did that movie that she had breast cancer,” Tucci stated of Kate, who he married in 1995, on a brand new episode of the WTF With Marc Maron Podcast. “So I did the movie, and she started treatments and then, you know, we had the premiere, and then she was alive for four more years after that. But … that’s where I met Emily, and we became friends and, actually, Felicity — Emily’s sister, my wife — she and Kate talked at the premiere that night and have a photo of them together, which is so odd. And then many years later, I ended up marrying Felicity.”
Tucci wed Blunt in 2012. While he and his first wife had three children, all of whom are now adults, he has two younger children — a 2-and-a-half-year-old and a 6-year-old — with Blunt.
They’re riding out the pandemic at their home in London. Tucci revealed that many of the family members had a bout with COVID-19 in the spring.
“I experienced symptoms last March. But they were minor,” Tucci stated. “I had the antibodies at one point, and then they don’t show up again. But I lost my sense of taste and smell for five days, as did all of my older children. Felicity never had any symptoms.”
His mother also tested positive, although his 90-year-old father did not.
Everyone is doing better now.
