Since moving from Broadway to Hollywood, Stanley has starred in well-known and critically-acclaimed movies such as “The Lovely Bones,” “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The Hunger Games” trilogy.

Stanley is known for changing his voice, hair, and overall appearance for any given role, which often makes him unrecognizable to viewers.

The two were married for 14 years and had three children before Kate died from breast cancer in 2009.

Roughly a decade after his wife’s death, Stanley accepted a role in “The Devil Wears Prada” alongside Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt.

Not only did the cult classic earn Meryl Streep an Oscar nomination, it also introduced Stanley and Emily.

Stanley and Emily became close friends throughout the filming and the promotion.

Stanley and Emily became such close friends that she even invited him to her wedding! Emily married “The Office” star John Krasinski in 2010 at an extremely private event that was held at George Clooney’s Lake Como home.

Stanley met Emily’s sister — the aforementioned Felicity Blunt — at the event, and the rest is history!

Despite the height difference and 18-year age gap, the two hit it off and began dating.

After a two-year relationship, Stanley and Felicity married in 2012.

Their wedding’s star-filled guest list included Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, and even Steve Buscemi, who was actually Stanley’s best man.

After the wedding, Stanley publicly admitted that he felt a bit guilty about getting married after the death of his first wife.

“It was very hard to go on vacations at first, really hard to go with Felicity someplace,” he said. “I felt guilty. It’s horrible.”

Stanley said the grieving process has been hard, but Felicity has been incredibly understanding.

“You never stop grieving,” Tucci told CBS Sunday in January 2021 about dealing with grief. “It’s still hard after 11 years. It’s still hard. And it will always be hard. But you can’t let it … and she would never want any of us to ever wallow in that grief and let it take over our lives. She would never want that. She wasn’t like that.”

Felicity and Stanley’s Life Together as a Married Couple

Felicity and Stanley have now been happily married for about 10 years. The two share three children from Stanley’s previous marriage and two children of their own.

“It’s not easy to find somebody who is going to take on three teenagers and a widower,” Stanley said. “That’s a lot, but she was willing to take on that challenge.”

Stanley shares occasional glimpses into their relationship via Instagram.

The two seem to enjoy making cocktails and snacks together.

Stanley Tucci’s Cancer Diagnosis

In 2018, Stanley was diagnosed with cancer at the base of his tongue.

“It was too big to operate, so they had to do high-dose radiation and chemo,” he told Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight magazine in an interview.

“I’d vowed I’d never do anything like that, because my first wife died of cancer, and to watch her go through those treatments for years was horrible… I had a feeding tube for six months. I could barely make it to the twins’ high school graduation,” he added.

“(Cancer) makes you more afraid and less afraid at the same time,” he concluded. “I feel much older than I did before I was sick. But you still want to get ahead and get things done.”

We wish nothing but happiness, health, and love for this beautiful couple in the upcoming year!

Emily, on the other hand, looked demure but chic in a form-fitting Narciso Rodriguez taupe knit dress that perfectly hugged her growing baby bump.

She was positively glowing in the midi frock, which was teamed with a gray coat and a pair of nude Jimmy Choo heels.

She kept her accessories simple with Jennifer Fisher jewelry and rounded out her look with glossy waves and neutral makeup.
