Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic's Relationship | Pictures

Christian Bale Can Count His Wife Among His Wins

Christian brought Sibi as his date for the LA premiere of Public Enemies in June 2009.

Boasting a successful film career that spans almost three decades, Christian Bale has won a string of awards, and within those years, he also won the heart of his wife, Sibi Blazic. The actor first met Sibi, a former model, when she worked as Winona Ryder's personal assistant, and the pair tied the knot in January 2000 before welcoming a daughter in 2005. After winning best supporting actor for his role in The Fighter, Christian gushed over his other half at the 2011 Critics' Choice Awards, saying, "She's had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage, and some women might say, 'Hey, that's great! Variety is the spice of life.' I know that it would be impossible to do it without her, and she's such a good, strong woman. I owe everything to her."

The actor nabbed his first Oscar in 2011 for The Fighter, and this year, he joins a group of talented 2014 nominees in the best actor category for his starring role in American Hustle. Sibi will likely be at his side for Sunday's Academy Awards, so ahead of the big night, take a look back at the couple's relationship through the years.
