67-year-old actress Marilou Henner became a household name for her work on “Taxi” from 1978 to 1983, and she has more than eighty acting credits behind her, and her life is filled with stories that could easily be made into a screenplay.

Although she debuted on Broadway in 1974 and had already moved to TV and film, her part in “Taxi” cemented her reputation as an actress, and gave her the chance to work with stars like Danny DeVito, Tony Danza, and Christopher Lloyd.

After the show was over, Henner kept building a prolific and successful career, but the public at large might not be aware of how interesting her personal life is behind the cameras.

LOVE LIFE AND CHILDREN

Henner has married thrice, with her first two marriages ending up in divorce. She was married to actor Frederic Forrest briefly (1980-82) and it wasn’t until eight years later when she married the father of her two children, Robert Lieberman.

Her marriage to the film director lasted eleven years, and the two divorced in 2001 after bringing Joseph Marlon and Nicholas Morgan Lieberman to this world. Their sons are nowadays 24 and 25 years old.

Nicholas has pursued a creative career, directing a music video for singer Ben Platt and writing articles that have been published by prestigious news outlets such as Huffington Post.

Despite having aspirations to follow his father’s steps and being used to the spotlight since he was born, Nicholas remains a very private person, but his social media suggests he is in a relationship with actress Molly Gordon.

HER CURRENT HUSBAND

Henner and her current husband Michael Brown’s love story seems to be out of a romantic comedy film. Married in 2006, the two met in 1970, when the two were students at the University of Chicago.

While there was certainly chemistry between the two since the beginning, they had to wait decades until the timing was right for them to let their love blossom.

First, Brown was dating Henner’s roommate Linda, and when they broke up, Henner never had the courage to pursue a relationship with Brown out of respect for her friend.

Ten years later, their paths crossed once again, but by then Henner was days away from marrying Forrest, and Brown had already married to another woman.

“I kept thinking, ‘How come I’m not marrying a guy like that?” she admitted many years after.

Fast-forward to 20 years later, Brown had divorced his first wife after having three children, and Henner was also available after her second divorce. The timing was finally right, and fate had Brown calling Henner on the phone.

Henner couldn’t be more excited about hearing back from him. “My heart was pounding when I called him back. I twisted like a pretzel to put the tension in my body, so he wouldn’t hear it in my voice,” she said.

A dinner date followed, and without wasting any time, the two kissed. Five years later they married, and the two have remained happily together up until now.

“It’s nice that people live long enough that they’re able to find their way back to the place where they always should have been,” Brown’s brother, who officiated the wedding, said about Henner and Brown’s love story.

HER SECRET SUPERPOWER

As a result of a condition called hyperthymesia, also known as Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory, Henner can remember every day of her life in detail. She is one of the only 12 people in the world diagnosed with it.

From her baptism on, Henner says she remembers every single thing she has lived, "I just remember the water, and I remember the white. Whenever I go back into memory, I'm always in my body looking out," she shared in 2012.

"When somebody gives me a date or a year or something, I see all these little movie montages, basically on a time continuum, and I'm scrolling through them and flashing through them," Henner added.

“'Taxi” is so vivid to my mind. The very first rehearsal was July the 5th of 1978. That was a Wednesday and our first show was shot the 14th, a Friday," she recalls.

She also remembers when she moved to her Hollywood Hills house, where she has lived for three decades.

“We moved in on March 23, 1989. It was a Thursday. We pulled into the driveway, and the kitchen was pretty much the same as it is now,” Henner shared.
