Riley Keough’s First Encounter with Husband Ben Smith-Peterson: An Inside Look
In an interview with USA Today in 2016, Riley Keough talked about meeting her husband Ben Smith-Peterson for the first time on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road. She said that they met briefly in the desert, where the movie was shot for six months. “But we only began dating after we did a reshoot in Australia. Because there are fewer people on board and I got to meet him.”
Riley Keough also said that she knew Smith-Peterson was the one after only a few weeks. “Two weeks into dating him, we were at a gas station, and I told him, “I could see myself having kids with this person.” It was almost like I knew I was going to meet my future husband. It was awesome.”
The actress said that meeting her husband was “very” normal. She said that even though they are in love and crazy about each other, she thinks their relationship is a lot more than that. “I always felt at ease when I was with him. When you first start dating someone, do you ever feel weird, like you don’t want to eat in front of them or wake up and put on make-up? I just always felt very comfortable around him and wanted to be close to him from the start.”
