Who is Tharita Cesaroni?
Tharita Cesaroni was born in Milan, Italy, in 1973, but has kept the exact date of her birth hidden, although her zodiac sign is believed to be Scorpio – she holds Italian nationality. She is a cinematography agent and a movie producer, but who might be more widely known as the wife of American actor Dermot Mulroney.
Early life and education
Tharita was raised an only child in Milan by her father Franco Catulle, and her mother Emy Cesaroni who was a famous Italian actress and singer.
Motivated by her mother, Tharita became interested in singing at a very early age, but soon learned she wasn’t talented enough and thus turned to acting.
She attended a local high school at which she practiced her acting skills with the school’s drama club, while she was also interested in creative writing and doing gymnastics. She matriculated in 1991, but hasn’t talked about pursuing a college degree – it’s widely believed that she skipped college to focus on her career in the film industry.
Tharita is said to be very popular in Italy, but not a lot is known about her career except that she received special thanks for the 2013 horror comedy movie “The Rambler”, written and directed by Calvin Reeder, and which starred her husband Dermot, Lindsay Pulsipher and Natasha Lyonne – it follows a man who is let out of prison and who then starts living on the road.
It was nominated for a New Visions Award as well as for an Audience Award (both for Calvin Reeder).
Love life and marriage with Dermot Mulroney
Tharita is very secretive when it comes to her love life, and she and Dermot even tried to keep their relationship a secret until they were caught by paparazzi in 2007, which is the same year when Dermot divorced his first wife Catherine Keener. He and Catherine married in 1990, she gave birth to their son Clyde Keener Mulroney on 21 June 1991, but they split in May 2005.
Tharita and Dermot married in a private ceremony attended by their closest friends and family in 2008, and in the same year, Tharita gave birth to their daughter Mabel while their second daughter Sally June followed in 2009 – the family of four is living in Los Angeles, California.
Tharita hasn’t talked about any other men she might have dated, so as of November 2020, she is married to Dermot Mulroney and has two daughters with him.
Hobbies and other interests
Tharita is a fan of wine, Italian wine to be precise, and unsurprisingly also enjoys eating pizza. She likes to travel, and has been to many US states as well as many European countries tasting various cuisines, but Italian cuisine and wine are still her favorite.
She is a lover of animals but doesn’t have a pet because she is not okay with her daughters living in the same house as a dog or a cat. During her teenage years, she occasionally volunteered at a local animal shelter.
Tharita is not very sociable, and mostly prefers to spend time with her husband and her daughters – she rarely keeps her husband company at his red carpet events, and he usually has to try really hard to persuade her to go with him.
In her spare time, Tharita is keen on watching Italian movies starring her favorite actors and actresses Marcello Mastroianni, Raoul Bova and Sophia Loren, such as “La Dolce Vita”, “Marriage Italian Style” and “City of Women”.
Age, height and net worth
Tharita is either 47 or 46 years old. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 4ins (1.64m) and she weighs around 110lbs (50kgs). As of November 2020, her net worth has been estimated at over $400,000, while Dermot’s net worth is reputedly more than $11 million.

He met his future first wife Catherine on the set of the survival movie “Survival Quest” in 1989 – she got caught in a river current, and Dermot was the only one to jump in to save her. They started dating, then married, and appeared in many movies together, including “Heroine of Hell”, “Living in Oblivion” and “Box of Moonlight”.
Dermot also starred alongside Winona Ryder in the drama film “How to Make an American Quilt” in 1995, and for their kiss, the two were nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss.
