Joseph Gordon-Levitt secretly married his girlfriend, Tasha McCauley

Joseph Gordon Levitt

Sad news, ladies. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, noted feminist, secretly married his robot-building girlfriend, Tasha McCauley. It’s gonna be okay. Joe does have his share of female fans, but he flies under the radar. Part of his low-key nature evolved because he wanted so desperately to avoid the child-stardom trap. He’s chill. He dates women who aren’t famous, and he’s been “off the market” for some time, really.

JGL raved about his (then-nameless) lady last spring. She’s refreshingly normal! Tasha holds an MBA and is the CEO of Fellow Robots. She barely maintains a social media presence. People has a photo of Joe and Tasha together, and here’s the official, barely-there wedding announcement. These two are so publicity shy that they got married over a week ago, and we’re only hearing about it now:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt married girlfriend Tasha McCauley on Dec. 20, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

The pair said “I do” during a ceremony at their home.

“I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” Gordon-Levitt said in 2013, declining to name the lucky lady. “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of that.”

That’s probably because McCauley isn’t the Hollywood type, but rather the co-founder and CEO of Fellow Robots, a robotics company based at NASA Research Park in Silicon Valley, California.

Private couple, private wedding. Pretty cool, right? Not many working actors can pull off a secret wedding like this, no matter how hard they try. Congrats to Joe and Tasha!

Tasha posted this photo on Facebook last summer. She seems like a laid-back girl.

    George and Amal – take note.

    Your special day does not have to be your thirsty-ist day.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Yes, but if they had been discreet about it then how else could they force, (clears throat), I mean convince, the public that their union was real and the love story of the century? Turns and barfs into the CB bucket.

  2. zan says:

    He is sooooo dreamy!!!! Too cute and so nice in every interviews I saw, when he sang with lady gaga was pretty awesome too. I’m a bit jealous.. I’ll try to find one like that. Congrats to them 🙂

    • Erinn says:

      Ughhhh he’s one of my forever crushes. My husband put on the batman he is in last night while I was building a site for a client. He was like “Hey look Erinn-” and before he could alert me that he was on screen (I was not paying attention to the movie) I had heard him start to talk and whipped my head up and sighed, haha. He is one of the few that make me swoon. AND I actually am really happy for them. I’m just glad he didn’t grab onto some starlet. She’s an incredibly talented woman, and has a good job, and has made a name for herself in her field. And I have to give kudos to another kindred spirit in a male dominated technology field.

      • Sadie says:

        Yup – started crushing on him when I was like 7 or 8, and 20 years later I still am. I also had the pleasure of meeting him once when I was interning for a film festival, and he was such a sweet guy.

        She seems like a really smart, interesting woman. I hope they’ll be very happy together!

  3. SK says:

    Congrats!!! He really just is the best and he’s clearly found himself a truly fabulous lady.

  4. Nessa says:

    This just makes me love him more. Congrats to the happy couple!!!

    • TQB says:

      Right? That what he looks for in a partner is someone down to earth and smart just makes him hotter.

    • ichsi says:

      SAME HERE!! I love it when cool, handsome and famous men go for brainy ladies who don’t work in entertainment. Gives me hope. ;D

    I don’t get why they go to the trouble of keeping a relationship and marriage, and Eva mendes and Ryan gosling case pregnancy and baby, so private but then get their publicist to make and announcement to a tabloid? Why bother?

    • Kiddo says:

      I think they wanted their private activities private. Just tossing an announcement out is like every other uppercrust couple, basically.

      • Plus I think people like to brag. And to just let you know that this is legit, and not a rumor. And if some fool wants to pay you for that, then why not?

      • Kitten says:

        I’m pretty sure it’s easier for their PR people to make a simple announcement than deal with the aggravation of fielding countless phone calls from the media asking if the rumors are true.

    • msd says:

      It says “People confirms” rather than “announces”. No publicist or spokesperson is mentioned either. That suggests the press simply found out. They either called to check and got a confirmation (no point lying), or simply used the info on the marriage documents to write a basic article.

      • lucy2 says:

        I’m guessing someone tipped People off to the documents or something. If he’s never really spoken about her publicly, I’d be surprised if he had a publicist issue a statement.
        I like when celebs stay low key with their private life like that. No hoopla, no media circus, no magazine spreads, no paparazzi stalking the ceremony.

  7. OhDear says:

    Congrats to them!

  8. scout says:

    She looks beautiful. Good for them to be private. Congrats!!

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Cute couple. Congrats and best wishes.

  10. Tateru says:

    Adorable couple + robots = WIN

  11. Sunny says:

    Cute! Big Congrats to the couple.

    I used to find JGL somewhat irritating despite the fact that he is legit smart and talented but over the last few years I have really grown to admire him and some of his off beat artistic endeavours.

    His lady seems accomplished, smart, and low key. I like that he doesn’t throw his relationship around to garner press attention nor does he seems the type to hid behind a dumpster not to be pictured together. Just refreshingly normal and private.

    I hope they are happy together.

  12. Esmom says:

    Lovely couple.

  13. Kitten says:

    Interestingly absent in this thread are the usuals who insist that JGL is gay.

    Very happy for him and his lovely wife-they seem like a great match.

    • Deleuth says:

      I confess to having been misled by Lainey and the boys at Datalounge. I suppose the story will flip to bi or closet. Although I cant think why JGL would closet so incospicously or what a tech entrepeneur would gain from bearding, I’m sure someone will find a way to force fit the theory. Either way, shes a great catch. Congrats to them.

      • Kitten says:

        That’s the thing-showmance and bearding for an incredibly low-key, anti-fame, PR-hating robotics company CEO?
        Why would the least thirsty of all celeb couples need to have a bearding situation?

        I think you’re right that some will try to force-fit it but come on….

      • Dońt kill me i'm french says:

        I thought he was gay because he never had an official girlfriend
        After He can be bisexual or gay or straight and who cares? It’s his life and He never sold his private life to the tabloids

    • Kiddo says:

      Does he shop at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace or Macy’s Herald Square? Not enough info to make informed judgement.

    • Veronica says:

      I always appreciated the fact that he refused to answer the question, which is really about saying homosexuality shouldn’t be a unique identifier or unattractive quality. However, it could also be misconstrued as a quiet admission, which is what I think most people read it as.

      (As a queer woman, I would point out that marrying a woman doesn’t mean that he isn’t bi or pansexual. We tend to erase that identity by not even considering it in the first place.)

    • Peppa says:

      I think a lot of that had to do with Lainey’s blind. Having looked it up, it appears she said JGL is bi and it is Michael Pitt who is gay. She revealed it during one of her Smut Soirees, so that just cemented it in people’s minds. I like him, and I couldn’t care less whether anyone was gay or straight just as long as they aren’t hiding in a Hollywood built closet. Lainey’s blind also said something like he was “ignorantly going back to the other side of his bisexuality” (paraphrasing) after the alleged nasty break up with Pitt. I like this website but I really really do not like her’s (haven’t given her page clicks in months) and that reminds me why.

  14. Tiffany27 says:

    I use to be so thirsty for him. Idk what happened, but congrats to them.

  15. Lilacflowers says:

    One of my best friends was devastated and heartbroken about this all day yesterday. But this morning, she texted that she has recovered and is moving onto Cillian Murphy. Knives will be drawn.

  16. Veronica says:

    They look like a lovely and charming couple. She sounds pretty awesome. I want to spend a day at her job just watching her build our future overlords.

  17. EG says:

    Congrats to them! He is so dreamy delish. If you haven’t seen Don Jon, I highly recommend–it’s surprisingly good and moving. He wrote directed and starred. It’s also Scarlett Johannson’s hands-down best ever screen performance. She actually emotes! And commits to the character. He really got her best work ever out of her as a director. Love him.

    • Jess says:

      Agree! I watched Don Jon one night because I couldn’t find anything else, I was surprised it turned out to have some depth, good movie. Even though I occasionally watch it I’ve been saying for years that porn is ruining people and their view of what sex is supposed to be, I’ve seen a shift over the last decade especially, and it’s a big reason why I decided to be celibate, lol.

  18. Dawn says:

    How nice to see a celebrity who keeps his private life private. No selling of wedding pictures or pap photos. Congrats to them!

  19. Blythe says:

    I’m so happy for Joey. He’s still my boyfriend-in-my-head, regardless.

  20. lunchcoma says:

    Awwwww, that’s sweet. And, see, stars? You can do things privately if that’s what you actually want. Joe seems like he has his head on straight, especially for a former child star.

  21. I Choose Me says:

    They looked good together in the few pics of them I saw. Good, comfortable, body chemistry. I’m love JGL and happy he’s found a partner he can spend his life with. I wish them longevity.

    As an aside, she has a beautiful smile.

  22. Hannah says:

    “Not many working actors can pull off a secret wedding like this, no matter how hard they try.”

    I do not agree with that at all. They can hide anything they want, this is something the KK family wants you to believe…

  23. Cc says:

    She seems lovely 🙂

  24. INeedANap says:

    He really did put his money where his feminist mouth is by marrying this one, eh? Congrats to them!

  25. Quinn says:

    She seems to be a clever cookie, but I do think it’s a little funny that people are so excited about her being a regular woman when she’s the granddaughter of a shopping mall billionaire.

  26. Frankdiabetes says:

    If she’s “founder and CEO”, then why is she nowhere to be found on the Fellow Robots website?

    Congrats to them all the same.

  27. Felice says:

    Damn, I was hoping she made roombas. Mine has been acting up.

  28. kim says:

    They seem like a perfect fit. Joseph always seemed like a very amazing, creative guy. Hope they can make a beautiful home together.
