Fans all recognize Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore in the crime drama series "Ozark." Despite her character being unlucky in love, the star is happily married in real life.


"Ozark" star Julia Garner plays the ambitious and practical yet unlucky-in-love Ruth Langmore. After her relationship with Ben Davis, played by Tom Pelphrey, ends, the star finds herself single.

However, unlike her on-screen character's unlucky love streak, Garner is happily married to "Foster the People" lead vocalist Mark Foster in real life.

The two have been married for two years and are still going strong. To celebrate their two-year milestone, the actress posted a photo of her and her husband two weeks ago captioned:

"2 years today 🤍"



Garner and Foster met for the first time at the Sundance Festival just outside Eccles Theater in 2013, and once they got talking, they realized they had so much in common.

For starters, they discovered that Garner's grandmother lived in the same town as Foster's dad. After their initial meeting, they began creating their tradition, spending every other Christmas together.


They, however, did not start dating until 2019. After only ten months of being an official couple, Foster popped the question.

"Both of us had a few weeks of quiet before I had to leave for Atlanta to start shooting season three of Ozark, so we rented an RV and took a road trip up to Montana to get away from the city and just be together," Julia says.


Garner says they woke up one morning and took a walk along the edge of the water. Foster then read a poem he'd written to her, then got on one knee and proposed.


Following the beautiful and surreal proposal, they decided they wanted to have their wedding at New York's City Hall, where Garner's parents had married more than four decades earlier.


Garner donned a white pantsuit for their big day, completing the look with a cute bouquet of white roses, while her husband graced the occasion with a beautiful song, "Lovers in a Stream," written primarily for the special day.

The ceremony was a small, intimate one attended only by their immediate family. However, they invited extended family and friends to a celebratory dinner at Locanda Verde in Tribeca the following day.

After their nuptials, Garner and her new husband began getting ready to start on their busy schedules, but then, once the Coronavirus pandemic hit, they postponed their respective tours.

Staying home during the pandemic helped them spend more time together, acting as an unplanned yet highly welcome honeymoon.
