Modest Man Spotlight: Mark Ruffalo

By Arielle Tschinkel

While it’d be totally understandable for a Hollywood actor/director to keep his family life under wraps, Mark Ruffalo has never been shy about expressing the seriously sweet love he has for his wife, actress Sunrise Coigney, and their three children. Ruffalo may be one of Hollywood’s biggest heavy hitters, having been nominated and winning numerous awards and accolades for his work in over 60 films (!!), but he manages to always put his family at the top of his priority list. Thanks to his adorable social media posts, it’s easy to feel like we know Ruffalo’s family personally — there are plenty of picture perfect moments and things to know about the fam.

Ruffalo’s acting career began way back in the early ’90s, and he has had a steady rise to fame since. But he makes perfectly clear that he’s less interested in being a leading man and more interested in doing work that he’s passionate about, and acting as an activist for renewable energy sources and climate change. He acts both in big budget blockbusters like The Avengers and indies like Infinitely Polar Bear, but to his three kids (Keen, Bella Noche, and Odette), he’s simply dear old dad.
