Sam Elliott was unable to approach the actress the first time he spotted his future wife, Katharine Ross, and it wasn’t until many years later that he finally had the chance to meet her.
At this point in time, the couple has been married for 38 years and have a kid together.
Their wedding may seem like everything out of a fairy tale, but it hasn’t been without its share of problems, including a devastating fire.
On the set of the Western film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kids,” which was released in 1969, the two actors first laid eyes on one other physically. Elliott and Ross became increasingly familiar with one another on set after their first encounter with one another.
It was just a question of time before the two of them began dating one another. In later years, Ross would admit that she was drawn to Elliott due of his mustache, baritone voice, and overall excellent features.
Although this was the actress’s sixth marriage, it was her husband’s first at the time of their wedding in 1984. The happy couple had dated for a long before finally exchanging their wedding vows.
The newlyweds immediately left for their vacation in Hawaii after the ceremony when they tied the knot.
In the same year that Elliott and Ross tied the wedding, they were blessed with their only child, a girl named Cleo. After the birth of their one and only kid, the family decided to make their home at the remote ranch they owned in Malibu.
The actor said that it was a painful event for him to witness the home behind his land and the neighbor’s house burn to the ground. The lovely home was constructed out of wood in 1983 and spans more than 3,000 square feet.
On the inside, there are three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a massive stone fireplace, dark wooden accents, an open kitchen, and soaring wooden beams.
In addition, some of Elliott and Ross’ most precious memories are stored in the rustic ranch.
There, the couple reared their one and only daughter in the most responsible and caring manner they could muster. The famous actor was quoted as saying that being a parent was one of the most rewarding experiences of his life.
“It fills in the gaps for me. I’ve been married once, and I have one daughter, who is the person in the whole world to whom I am the most devoted. To put it another way, that’s where my universe is.”
He and his family spent many happy years at the little ranch which they called home. However, it is sad that they were not prepared for the catastrophe that was to strike them in the future.
Even though Sam’s family home was completely engulfed in flames, he was able to save it along with the firefighters. Elliott will never forget the year 2018, and neither will anybody else.
It all got off to a good start when he was cast in the lead role in a movie called “A Star Is Born.” On the other hand, at the end of the year, Elliott was involved in a terrible accident.
The movie star’s property was destroyed by the forest wildfire that ripped through Malibu in November of 2018, when he was doing publicity for his part in the film. Elliott said that he supported the firemen in their efforts to douse the flames as they were attempting to put out the fire.
The actor said that it was a painful event for him to witness the home behind his land and the neighbor’s house burn to the ground. But, to our great relief, Elliott’s home was spared the calamity.
Even though the terrible event was still fresh in his mind, the famous actor in Hollywood was thankful for the little portion of his property that had been salvaged.
Elliott claims that his lifelong goals have always included having a successful movie career and getting married.
Thank goodness, he was granted his requests, and now, many years later, both his marriage and his job are prospering.
