According to the actor in an interview, what actually got him started as a real actor was his wife. “I must have auditioned 800 times without landing a part. I was tending bar at Chateau Marmont [in L.A.], and I’d see Johnny Depp and Nic Cage hanging around, hugely successful, while I was barely making a living,” The great actor confessed. He went on to state how he had wanted to quit more than 4 times as a young actor in his 20s.

The only thing that got him back and kept him going was his wife. “I was living in a dump and didn’t even have a driver’s license or a credit card. She thought I was a mess, but she believed in me and kept encouraging me,” he revealed.

While it isn’t known exactly for how long the actor and the brunette beauty dated, they decided to tie the knot as man and wife in 2000.

In 2008, the family was struck by tragedy when Mark Ruffalo’s brother, Scott who worked as a hairdresser was killed. The younger Ruffalo was shot in the back of the head, and two people, Shaha Mishaal Adham and her boyfriend were linked to the murder case as persons of interest. After they were declared, both of them turned themselves over to the police a week after, but they were later released without being charged.
