» Alexis Knief Bio
Posted On: Dec 24, 2013
Alexis Knief has been married to the DeadWood starrer Timothy Olyphant for almost 22 years. Her husband being a well known celebrity has made her a celebrity as well and this couple is much talked about in the media world.
Timothy Olyphant has worked in films such as Scream 2, Gone in 60 Seconds, Go, The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy, Dreamcatcher, Live Free or Die Hard/Die Hard 4.0, The Girl Next Door, A Perfect Getaway, The Crazies, Hitman, I Am Number Four, and Rango. But he is very well known for his television roles as as Sheriff Seth Bullock in Deadwood, Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in Justified, and Wes Krulik in Damages.
Timothy Olyphant attended the University of Southern California, where he met Alexis Knief. They started dating in 1990 and by 1991 they were married. Their marriage so far seems to be working out good. They have three children Grace, Henry and Vivian.
There is something strange about the marriage though. Timothy wears his ring on his right hand instead of left. The most probable explanation would be that he might be a left handed and would want to wear his ring on his right hand. But that possibility rules out as he certainly is right handed. The perfect reason might be that he is very low key about his marriage with Alexis Knief. It seems like he might be publicly downplaying his marriage of 22 years while still being the good guy and actually wearing the ring. Another amazing fact is that Alexis doesn’t seem to mind him wearing his wedding ring on the
on the right hand.
It seems that Alexis has a very healthy sense of humor about her relationship. This can be illustrated by Olyphant’s appearance on an episode of the Conan O’Brien show where he revealed that he had special Emmy speech planned if he would have won the 2011 Emmy Award for best Actor. He stated, “Kyle Chandler won the Emmy,it was lovely, I was very happy for him. I feel like he deprived some people of a good speech. My opening line-this was my wife’s idea actually-I was going to look at the trophy and then look at my wife of 20 years and say, ‘Well, honey, this is it. I’m finally leaving you.”
In most other celebrity relationships the more famous one, after reaching the summit of success, tends to leave their spouse for some hotter, younger person. But Alexis seems to still have a special effect on Timothy as despite the rumors of him hooking up with Natailie Zea, his co-star, their relation is still as strong as before.
Alexis Kneif falls among the kind of celebrity couple who are very laid back and discreet about their relationship. Though her spouse is a well known celebrity, she on the other hand is a mysterious woman. The details about her upbringing and her current affairs are not public spectacle. Alexis is rarely seen with her husband in the red carpet, the last time being on 2006. This couple likes to keep it to themselves and it would be apt to say that this decision of theirs is what makes their relation different and stronger than the others.
