Nineteen years after saying “yes,” Michelle Yeoh has finally said “yes”: The storied Oscar winner has married her longtime fiancé, Jean Todt.
The 60-year-old Everything, Everywhere, Everything at Once star married the 77-year-old former Ferrari and Peugeot race director in Geneva on Thursday, according to former Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa, who oversaw the couple’s wedding programme on shared Instagram. The show summed up the high-profile couple’s love story and revealed some details about their big day.
“We met in Shanghai on June 4, 2004,” the program said. “On July 26, 2004, JT MY proposed and she said YES! Today, after 6992 days on July 27th, 2023 in Geneva, surrounded by loving family and friends, we are so happy to celebrate this special moment together!”
It appears Yeoh’s Oscar statuette also made it to the celebrations, with Massa and others posing in his photos next to the gilded trophy. The visual synopsis also featured the ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ and ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ actor in a number of wedding looks including a sheer blouse and cream skirt with tassels and a champagne bodice dress.
“Happy marriage #JeanTodt & #michelleyeoh love you so much,” Massa captioned the post.
Yeoh and Todt representatives did not immediately respond to the Times request for comment Friday. And Yeoh hasn’t posted anything about the wedding yet.
Todt, a recently retired French motorsport executive, is acting as the United Nations representative. Special representative for road safety and was a former President of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA).
Speaking to The Times in November, Yeoh confirmed she and Todt’s long-delayed wedding plans. The Star Trek: Discovery alum said she and Todt were finally set to get married last year, but getting the paperwork took time (Todt is based in Switzerland and the country has strict requirements). She also said that she didn’t care as much about making it official as Todt did.
“A piece of paper doesn’t change anything for me,” she said. “But it means a lot to Jean, so it means a lot to me too.”
