After dating for one year, Jodie and Alexandra tied the knot in April 2014. They have kept their more than a decade-long relationship extremely private, only making rare red carpet appearances. 

“Every day I’m a proud wife but today you get a special shout out in the remote land of IG,” Alexandra gushed about Jodie’s Golden Globe nomination via Instagram in 2021. “I’ll have to show you my phone for you to see this but still … I’m shouting from the rooftops.”

She later gushed that loving Jodie “is easy as cake” in a sweet birthday tribute in November 2023.

Who Is Alexandra Hedison?

Alexandra was born to actor David Hedison – best known for his role as James Bond’s ally, Felix Leiter, in Live and Let Die and License to Kill – and his wife, Bridget Hedison, in July 1969. In 2004, she told The New York Times that photography makes her “so happy.”

In addition to shooting behind a lens, however, Alexandra has also done work as an actress. She starred alongside Debra Messing in the sci-fi series Prey, as well as being credited in shows such as The L Word and Melrose Place.

“I was supporting myself, but I was miserable,” she told The New York Times in 2004 of her acting career. “Actors need to be front and center all the time. That’s not me.”

She later gushed that loving Jodie “is easy as cake” in a sweet birthday tribute in November 2023.

While Alexandra does not have children of her own, prior to her marriage to Jodie, the filmmaker was in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres from 2000 to 2004.
