Weaver is seven years her husband's senior and in an interview with People magazine, she said they met in 1983 at Williamson Theatre Festival. According to the magazine, she first saw her husband to be while he was sitting smoking and reading books on the Moscow Art theatre, however when she asked him to dance at a party later he said 'no'.
