Rise to Fame

Margherita Ronchi’s Venetian looks worked in her favour in her fashion career. Her stature and personality geared her towards becoming a model. She had several modelling assignments to her name from local brands and companies early in her career, and she quickly became a popular model in Italy. She even managed to walk the runway and make a name for herself. Despite having a successful modeling career in Italy, Margherita Ronchi decided to move to the US and try her luck in Hollywood. To support herself, she worked odd jobs, including that of a waitress at a restaurant. It was during her stint as a waitress that she met her future husband Matthew Fox, an Economics student and sportsperson. Despite initial reluctance from Ronchi’s end, she was won over by Fox in due time and they started dating in 1987. Ronchi’s career was put on a hold as she wanted to stand by her partner and support him throughout his career.

Matthew Fox’s transformation from a student to an amateur model and finally to a professional actor could not have happened without Margherita’s Ronchi’s encouragement as she knew how the modeling industry worked. She gave up her life in Italy to be with Fox and help his career. Finally, their relationship was formalized through marriage in August 1992. Since their marriage, Ronchi has been seen accompanying her husband to sets and travelling often in order to spend more time with him. According to Fox, Ronchi’s unwavering and unending support is the biggest reason behind his success. She currently maintains a very low profile and is rarely seen interacting with the media. She is not active on any social media network either.
