Best known for his roles in Zoolander, Night at the Museum, Dodgeball, Tropic Thunder, and the Meet the Parents franchise, Ben Stiller has been gracing the big screen in iconic comedy films for decades. As the son of two acting comedians, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, it was clear that Ben had it in his DNA to make people laugh.

The actor married his Dodgeball co-star Christine Taylor in 2000, but the two announced their intention to divorce in May of 2017. Since their split, Ben and Christine have united on the red carpet for their kids, and they've kept things amicable. But, has Ben moved on since getting divorced?

Who is Ben Stiller's girlfriend?

In the years since the Emmy Award winner ended his marriage to Christine, he hasn't been linked to anyone romantically. Whether Ben is single, or he's keeping a relationship private is unknown, but he's also been linked again to Christine.

There have been reports that the two actually reconciled, especially since they've attended several events together since their divorce (more on that later). But, neither Christine nor Ben has confirmed that they've rekindled their relationship, and their joint appearances are generally also with their children.

A friend told OK! Magazine in August 2021 that the couple was "spending a lot of time together and having long talks about what they want in life... Ben and Christine realized they still have an intense connection and have been slowly rebuilding their romance.”

Who are Ben Stiller's exes?

Before he walked down the aisle with Christine at the start of the millennium, Ben had a string of high profile romances with several actresses. He started dating Big Love star Jeanne Tripplehorn in 1990, and the two even got engaged before they split in 1996. 

He also wooed Something's Gotta Give actress Amanda Peet for several months in 1998. The two clearly kept things amicable following their breakup, as they both starred in the Off-Broadway production of This Is How It Goes in 2005.

Ben's last public relationship before marrying Christine was with Brothers & Sisters actress (and Harrison Ford's current wife) Calista Flockhart in 1999. The pair wasn't an official item for long, and Ben reportedly broke up with her when he met Christine on a TV show set. 

Christine and Ben got engaged in November of 1999 after meeting during the taping of the pilot Heat Vision and Jack. Though the show wasn't picked up, their romance certainly did. 

The couple got married in May of 2000 in Hawaii, and they welcomed daughter Ella Olivia in 2002 and son Quinlin Dempsey in 2005. 

Ella is following in her parents' footsteps as an actress; she voiced a school child in the 2010 film Megamind and she briefly appeared in her dad's miniseries Escape at Dannemora in 2018. 

Quinlin's voice was also featured in Megamind, and he had a brief speaking voice in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. 

Though Ben's been divorced from Christine since 2017, the couple has made several joint appearances on the red carpet with their kids in the years since. They also attended the 2019 Emmy Awards together, but Ben was not wearing a wedding ring.
