Tharita Cesaroni is an Italian film producer and cinematographer, famous for being the wife of American actor and musician, Dermot Mulroney. She is a well-known cinematographer in Italy but attained worldwide fame after marrying her famous actor husband. The good-looking actor is best known for his roles in movies like ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’, ‘August: Osage County’ and his television roles in series such as ‘Friends’, ‘The Batman’, etc. As Dermot Mulroney’s wife, Tharita Cesaroni has attended several movie premiere, award ceremonies and media events with him. But that is the only time she is ever seen in the spotlight. She is a very private person and stays away from the limelight. One of her parents was already a part of show business in Italy and Tharita had been fascinated with cinema from a young age. She successfully pursued a career in cinematography and worked as a film producer for many years in her own country before meeting her husband and moving to the U.S. Although she is a Hollywood star’s wife, she lives a quiet life with her husband and children, and is not active on any form of social media.
As the daughter of an established actress and singer, Tharita was enchanted with the movie-making business from a very young age. As she grew up, she took a keen interest in the cinema field and slowly built up her career as a cinematographer in Italy. Her work gained recognition and she became an established cinematography agent and event cinematographer. Simultaneously, she also worked as a film producer. After working for many years in the field, she became a well-known name in the Italian media.
Though she was a star in her own right in her home country, she was hitherto unknown in the outside world. It wasn’t until she met and married Dermot Mulroney that she gained worldwide recognition. They managed to keep their relationship a secret from the press but made it official after they got married. Being the wife of a Hollywood star catapulted her into a life of fame and popularity. Her husband is a famous actor who broke on to the movie scene with his debut movie ‘Sin of Innocence’ and steadily gained popularity doing character roles in movies like ‘Young Guns’, ‘Where the Day Takes You’, ‘Long Gone’, lead roles in romantic comedies like ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’, ‘The Wedding Date’, and co-starred in ensemble cast films like ‘The Family Stone’, ‘August: Osage County’, etc. He has had memorable roles in television series like ‘Friends’, ‘New Girl’, ‘Crisis’, etc. His most famous recent appearance was in the Amazon miniseries ‘Homecoming’. The award-winning actor is also a talented cellist and musician.
After moving to the U.S., she seems to have settled well into the life of a Hollywood wife. But she has chosen not to adopt her husband’s last name and reportedly maintains her Italian identity too. Fame does not seem to have affected her much and she seems to prefer staying away from the limelight as much as possible. But as the wife of a celebrity, she occasionally makes exceptions to that rule and is seen accompanying her husband to movie premiere and award events. She is often seen at events like ‘2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party’, ‘amfAR Los Angeles 2017’, and more.
It is unclear if she continues to work as a film producer and cinematographer, but she has reportedly accumulated wealth of her own and also shares in her husband’s fortune. She maintains a low-key profile and is not active on any social media platform.
