Was it love at first sight?
Sheryl and Rob had met on a half-blind date. This was in the year 1983. They did few more dates but were not yet prepared to get into a relationship during those days. They then drifted apart for 7 years. They met again during the filming of Rob’s movie Bad Influence where Sheryl was his makeup artist.
It was at this meeting that Cupid struck and the two started a relationship. They got engaged and later married on 22 July 1991; eight years after they first met. But Rob had the problem of alcoholism and also a sex tape scandal case with him. Talking about those days, Rob told Haute Living:
“I had met my now wife, Sheryl, and was attempting my first try at monogamy — which was not really in my nature at the time — and I wasn’t able to do it. It made me examine how I was living my life. That led me to getting sober, which led me to changing my life — giving me everything I now have.”
Sheryl’s support has made him sober now.

Rob spoke about how Sheryl feels when he is working some other pretty women. He said:
“She’s very secure with herself, and that makes it easy for me to go about and do what I do, and sometimes my work calls me to hop into a bed and kiss a pretty girl.”
