From his break-out role in the 1996 film Swingers to his most recent appearance in the 2020 horror-comedy flick Freaky, Vince Vaughn has had a long and impressive acting career. He’s also had his fair share of Hollywood romances, including a high-profile relationship with Jennifer Aniston. But today, he’s happily married to a woman who’s been by his side for more than a decade. Here’s an inside look at Vince Vaughn’s wife, Kyla Weber.
Vince Vaughn Broke Up With Jennifer Aniston In 2005
Vince Vaughn met Friends star Jennifer Aniston in 2005 while working on The Break-Up. At the time, Aniston was recently divorced from Brad Pitt, who had very publicly moved on with actress Angelina Jolie. In 2008, she told Vogue that the Dodgeball actor had come into her life at just the right time. “He literally brought me back to life,” she said. “My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He’s a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that.”
The couple dated for about a year, then called it quits in November of 2006. While neither one offered a concrete reason for the split, people speculated that it was due to their busy schedules. And Vaughn did admit that he had a tough time dealing with Aniston’s level of fame.
“You know, she’s great,” he said of Aniston in an interview with Playboy magazine (as reported by E! News). “For me personally — and I think most well-known actors who are together feel this way — I never enjoyed the paparazzi side of it. You like someone and you’re spending time with them; that’s separate and that was all fine. But I really spent most of that time finding ways not to be drawn into the attention. I think lying low and not talking about it put me in a good position later, because I just wasn’t part of anything.”
While the couple were still together when The Break-Up premiered in June of 2006, they were dunzo just a few months later. Ironically, the movie is about a couple that breaks up but continues to live together because neither wants to give up their shared Chicago condo.
Vince Vaughn Got Engaged To Kyla Weber in 2009
Vaughn proposed to his girlfriend, Kyla Weber, on Valentine’s Day in 2009. “I figured this is not a ship to be missed because I will not forget this date,” Vaughn later said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “So Valentine’s Day was the day that I asked her.”
Less than a year later, the pair were married in a private ceremony in Lake Forest, Illinois—near where Vince Vaughn grew up. The happy couple recently celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary on January 2nd.
Vince Vaughn Thinks Kyla Weber Is ‘The Best Girl In The World’
A successful realtor, Kyla Weber was born in Okotoks, Alberta, Canada, in 1979. Reportedly, she met Vince Vaughn at a wedding after being introduced to him by a mutual friend. By all accounts, it was love at first sight for both Weber and the Wedding Crashers star. “I met the best girl in the world,” he later told Ellen DeGeneres. “It gives you such a great purpose in your life. If I would’ve met her, I would’ve done it a long time ago so I’m very, very happy.”
“Sometimes, in our industry, well, I speak for myself, maybe that’s an excuse, but you don’t mature always at the same time,” he continued. “So if I was very fortunate that when I got ready and was open to that, then that person came into my life. You have to be ready to receive that. No question.”
The couple have two children together—Locklyn Kyla Vaughn, born in December of 2010, and Vernon Lindsay Vaughn, born in August of 2013. Now that he’s a family man, Vaughn likes to keep his private life private and admits he’s never really engaged in social media.
“I don’t know, maybe it’s my age? I just never got into it,” he said in an interview on Today. “I felt like I didn’t have something to say every day or give people advice. I just sort of felt like it just wasn’t something that I was kind of drawn to.”
Clearly, what Vaughn values most in life now is his family! “You know, I have a great life,” he told Today. “My wife is terrific. We’ve been very fortunate, my kids are great. We’ve been having a lot of fun, so I have no complaints. I’m very happy. I feel very blessed.”
