Christine and Ben first met on the set of "Heat Vision and Jack," a never-aired TV pilot and got married in the year 2000. After exchanging vows in 2000, the pair had a blissful married life.
In an interview with Parade in December 2013, Stiller talked about his relationship with his wife. He said-
“[Our] relationship was a gradual thing that happened over a quick period of time, maybe seven or eight months. We just started hanging out with each other and it developed into, ‘Wow, this feels great. I really like this person. I think I love this person. I really do – I love this person.’ It hit me out of the blue.”
It’s sad how their relationship has turned sour as time passed. Christine and her estranged husband Bill has appeared together in the films like Tropic Thunder (2008), Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (2004), and Zoolander (2001).
