Bana Fathers Heartfelt Flick

Bana Fathers Heartfelt Flick

Eric Bana is joined by wife Rebecca Glesson at the Melbourne premiere of small-time Aussie flick Romulus, My Father at the Rivoli, Camberwell on Monday in Australia.

Said Bana at the film’s Castlemaine premiere of being able to relate to the story as he was also the son of immigrants: “Obviously wherever possible when you read a script you are hoping to form a bond with it, and something about that story makes you feel a bond with it as an actor. When I read this it was like a baseball bat over the head. It had a very strong presence with myself, not only as a Victorian but also as a son as a migrant. Not only are we representing the people who were real, we are representing someone’s story who is very much with us and was very much engaged with the production.”

Romulus, My Father opens in theaters in Australia on Thursday, May 31.

    God for a hot hunk, his wife sure is a plain jane. I think it’s refreshing to see a really hot guy with a regular girl. Gives the rest of us hope that we too can find hunks like that w/out having typical hollywood looks and bodies to go with it.

    Does anyone know where Eric Banas parents are immigrants from??

    I think Eric & his wife look cute together. Like a normal, happy couple. Refreshing :)

  • Linda Rasmussen

    Eric Bana was born Eric Babadinovich in Melbourne, Australian to dad from Croatia and mom from Germany.

    They are a cute couple! it’s so nice and refreshing to see a hot hollywood actor with a nice normal girl

  • Best of Celeb

    The only thing plain about her is that she isn’t famous.

  • 2985

    Agreed Best of Celeb! She’s still pretty I think. :) I remember reading articles about the time when he was pursuing her back in the days. At the time, she was working for the 7 Network (one of the free-to-air channels here in Oz) and he was one of the comedy guys. Well, obviously this is a highly condensed version but yeah, she’s always like his sense of humor, won her over. Awww… :)

  • Roberta

    I think she is 40/41, she is a bit older than him.

  • Lala

    Very nice couple indeed. Not all couples have to be brangelina! speaking of brangelina they are always getting like 300 or 400 comments on their pics, seems a little ridiculous. O well, i’m not a fan or a non fan, i just don’t care about them. Eric however is my brad pitt.

  • Fabiola

    Rebecca Gleeson does not have 36 years of age , She(It) is of the year 1966 It is an official news

  • Tania

    Officially Rebecca was born in 1966 ( not 1971), and Eric in 1968 , Rebecca is actually a couple years older than Eric so she must be at least 40 now.

  • eRIKA

    As always, Eric looks so Smokin-HOT! But would someone please give his wife a Happy-Meal? She is way to damn skinny, her chest is sunken.
