Who is Tony Goldwyn married to?

Tony Goldwyn has been married to Jane Musky since 1987. The couple first met during the 1980s, when Goldwyn was 21.

“Jane is just the most incredible human being that I know,” Goldwyn told Hoda Kotb during an interview on The Today Show in 2019. “She's just a very salt of the earth person. And I knew when I was 21 when I met her, I better hang on because I'll never come across this again.”

How did Tony Goldwyn meet his wife, Jane Musky?

Goldwyn told the story of how he met Musky during a 2017 interview on LIVE with Kelly and Mark, and revealed that originally, it was Goldwyn’s best friend who was supposed to be going on the date with her.

“He said, ‘There’s this girl I’m obsessed with, and she likes to run, and I don’t have any running shoes,’” Goldwyn recalled. After he lent his friend a pair of running shoes, he was invited to come along on the date “as a wingman,” but ended up swooping in on Jane himself. “We ended up running up to this beautiful pond, and going skinny dipping,” he recalled. “[My friend] kind of stopped running with us, and then Jane and I kept running. We’re still running.”

What does Tony Goldwyn's wife do for a living?

Musky is a production designer, and has worked on a number of well-known projects over the years. Most notably, she was the production designer for classic rom-com When Harry Met Sally (1989), the Coen brothers’ Raising Arizona (1987), the David Mamet drama Glengarry Glenn Ross (1992) and more recently Hustlers (2019).

Musky was also the production designer on Ghost (1990), in which Goldwyn played the villainous role of Carl Bruner. “That’s how I got the part,” he revealed to Hoda Kotb. “I was a semi-employed actor, and Jane was this big fancy production designer,” he recalled, adding that Musky “kept bugging him” about the part until he convinced his agent to get him an audition.

We realized it was a great example for our girls to see that we both work equally hard, and both of my kids are ambitious.”
