Bill Hader may be a comedian, but he certainly seems to take his personal life quite seriously. The “Barry” actor was married to filmmaker Maggie Carey for 11 years before they ultimately split in 2017. While Hader has since gotten back in the dating game, he previously opened up to Variety about how his career has affected his family life.
“When I was on ‘SNL,’ I was a bit of a basket case,” he explained of his time on the late-night comedy sketch show. “It could not have been easy on my wife at the time. I was so consumed with work and anxiety.” Of welcoming their two eldest daughters, Hannah and Harper, Hader added, “Once our second child was born, I had to leave ‘SNL.’ It was hard with one kid, let alone two. Because I was just never around.”
Hader’s love life once again made headlines in late 2019 when he was linked to his “The To Do List” costar Rachel Bilson. In the years following, he’d continue to garner attention when he was linked to other A-listers, though he wasn’t always vocal about those he dated. In March 2023, Hader explained to The Hollywood Reporter that he doesn’t publicly discuss his relationships out of respect for his children. “They just want me to be their dad,” he explained. “They just want me to sit and watch ‘Encanto’ over and over and over again. So that’s what I do.”
