Janeane Garofalo - Janeane Garofalo Married Big Bang Producer, But Forgot All About It

Sometimes a marriage can feel so bad as to feel like you’re not even in one anymore. And sometimes they feel like that because you’d completely forgotten you’d got married in the first place. Sound impossible? Actress Janeane Garofalo and writer and The Big Bang Theory producer Rob Cohen managed to do just that, after it was revealed that Cohen’s plans for a new matrimony couldn’t go through until his current one had ended.

What current one though? According to the New York Post the pair did in fact get hitched 20 years ago in – where else – that most romantic of environments, Las Vegas. After a skin full, and then presumably another skin full as well, Garofalo and Cohen – who were dating at the time – decided to go down the aisle at Vegas. “Rob and I got married, for real, which we had to have a notary dissolve not 30 minutes before we got here tonight,” Garofalo said as she turned up for a reunion for The Ben Stiller Show. “We were married for 20 years until this evening.”

She added, “We got married drunk in Vegas . . . We dated for a year, and we got married at a drive-through chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew? We were married, and apparently now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something.” Though their marriage has been referenced in the past, it’s long been considered a joke between the two still-close friends, and not a real … y’know… thing. Think again.

With the pair now divorced, they were asked at the reunion whether either of them profited from the marriage by Jude Atapow. “I’m gonna get all of that Reality Bites money!” Cohen joked, in reference to Garofalo’s famous role in the 1994 film, which grossed $21 million. Garofalo does not drink anymore.
