Biography

Irving dated American film director Steven Spielberg from 1976 to 1980. She then had a brief relationship with Willie Nelson, her co-star in the film Honeysuckle Rose. The breakup with Spielberg cost her the role of Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark, which he had offered to her at the time, but they soon got back together and finally married from 1985 to 1989; upon their divorce she received an estimated $100 million settlement after a judge controversially vacated a prenuptial agreement that had been written on a napkin. In 1990 she became romantically and professionally involved with Brazilian film director Bruno Barreto; they were married in 1996 and divorced in 2005. She has two sons, Max Samuel (with Spielberg) (born June 13, 1985), and Gabriel Davis (with Barreto) (born May 4, 1990). She is married to Kenneth Bowser, Jr., a documentary film maker, most notable for making Easy Riders, Raging Bulls: How the Sex, Drugs and Rock 'N' Roll Generation Saved Hollywood, an adaptation of a book by Peter Biskind.
