Star Wars Actor Mark Hamill Just Proved Everyone Who Said ‘It Wouldn’t Last’ Wrong In A Powerful Tweet

A few days ago, people around the world celebrated the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi but Luke Skywalker alter ego Mark Hamill had another great reason to raise a toast. He was celebrating the 39th wedding anniversary with Marilou York, and the force is strong with their Hollywood-romance-trends-defying true love.

The Star Wars actor met York when she was working as a dental hygienist in Westwood, Los Angeles. “She came into the waiting room in jeans, white coat, breasts like melons, looking like a Vargas painting,” Mark told People magazine in 1981. “I said, ‘They let you dress like that at work?’ She said, ‘Yeah. Next.'”

Hamill said it was ‘love at first laugh:’ “I took her to Annie Hall to see if she had a sense of humor. I dropped women if they didn’t. There was this one close-up of a minor character, curling his lips back from his teeth. She leaned over to me and whispered, ‘Bad caps.'”

The happy couple took their vows on December 17, 1978, when he was 26, and she was 23. They have three children together: Nathan (born 1979), Griffin (1983), and Chelsea Elizabeth (1988).

Scroll down below to check their vintage wedding photos and the glorious love story of their own!

The recent scandals just magnify a bad image. I'm sure there are loads happy, normal lives being lived behind it all. You just don't hear about it cause how boring is that for the media.
