Who is Alexis Knief?

Born under the earth sign of Capricorn on 1 January 1970, at an unspecified location in California, USA, Alexis Knief is a 49-year-old American actress, but is perhaps best known for being the better half of actor/producer Timothy Olyphant. Upon meeting the love of her life, she developed an interest in acting, but never actually landed any major roles that would make her a star. Timothy, on the other hand, is known for being featured in several popular movies and TV shows, such as “Deadwood”, “Gone in 60 Seconds”, “Rango”, “Catch and Release” and others. Alexis’ love for Timothy dates back to their high school days, when they first became friends. Eventually their love grew, culminating in marriage in 1991, with their beautiful children joining them later on. Despite being the wife of a famous actor, Alexis prefers to stay out of the public eye, which is why not much is known about her.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in California

Alexis was born into an American family in The Golden State. There is not much information about her parents and early life across any credible sources, a clear sign of professionalism by Knief, as she refuses to let anything from her private life be revealed. Ever since it became known that she and Timothy were a couple, she has been bombarded with inquiries about the early years of her life, but has politely refused to give an answer to any and all questions involving said matter. There is also no available information about her high school education, but we do know that she matriculated from an unspecified institution near her birthplace in 1988. The same year, she enrolled at the University of Southern California, where she majored in an undisclosed subject. It is unclear whether she completed her studies or if she dropped out.

How Did She and Timothy End Up Meeting?

There are conflicting reports on this subject, but the most credible story is that the two met in high school. Initially, they were just friends for several years, however, at a certain point they realized it was futile to deny the mutual attraction which had already become more than evident. They officially started dating in 1990 and it didn’t take them long to realize they were meant for each other, and just a few months later they entered matrimony in a private ceremony, held on a beach at sunset, with only their families and closest friends being in attendance. It seems fitting that they chose this approach to marriage, given the fact that they are both private people. Even though they wanted to have children immediately, they decided to wait because Timothy had a hectic work schedule during the 1990s, rendering him unable to spend time with his children. In 1999 they had their first child, a girl they named Grace Catherine. Two years later, Alexis gave birth to their son Henry, and in 2003 they had another daughter they named Vivian.

Rumors of Divorce

Even though there wasn’t a shred of evidence suggesting that their marriage was falling apart, the media began spreading rumors about their imminent divorce. As the gossip became unbridled, Timothy voiced his concerns and told them to stop it. So, what was the reason for this malicious wave of false news? Did they cheat on one another or was there something else? Funnily, nothing actually happened. The whole thing started when reporters and paparazzi noticed that Timothy was wearing his wedding ring on his right hand, in contrast with the custom that says it is to be worn on the left. Because of that small detail, some thought that they were having problems. ‘Even though I found it annoying at first, Alexis and I shared a laugh about the whole situation’, said Timothy. ‘I just find it more comfortable on my right hand, that’s all there is to it.’

Even More Rumors About Divorce!

After the whole ruckus with Timothy’s wedding ring being on the wrong hand, one would think that these two have had enough of the word “divorce”. However, he and Alexis are known jokesters, so they weren’t going to let it go. When Timothy was nominated for an Emmy Award for his role of Raylan Givens in “Justified”, Alexis helped him prepare a speech. Unfortunately for him, Kyle Chandler ended up winning the award, in spite of the fact that Timothy was the favorite. Thus, the world was robbed of a chance to hear Olyphant joking about, you’ve guessed it – divorce! If he had won, he would have started the speech with the following line: ‘I’m going to look at [the trophy] and then look out at my wife of twenty years and say – Well, honey, this is it. I’m finally leaving you.’ This was clearly an attempt to fool around with the media, and who can blame them? If reporters can spread false rumors about their private lives, they have the right to mess with them as well.

What About Timothy’s Sex Scene?

In one of his movies, Timothy had to do a sex scene. Of course, the media saw this as another opportunity to “poke the sleeping bear” and start asking questions about his and Alexis’ marriage. When asked about the matter at a formal event, Timothy stated: ‘Alexis is a very smart woman and she really understands that my on-screen works are just professional things and such moments are not a big deal to make a big issue.’ These two have been an excellent example of how powerful love is when two people work hard at bettering themselves and their relationship on a daily basis. On another occasion, Timothy had the following to say about his beau: ‘It’s really hard to find such a perfect bonding like they have in Hollywood world.’

Body Measurements: How Tall is Alexis Knief?

Alexis Knief is 5ft 8in (173cm) tall, and while there is no information about her other measurements, by looking at all the photos of her and Timothy from various formal events, it’s obvious that she works out, given the fact that she has a slim build. With blonde hair and dark brown eyes, Alexis makes regular appearances on “The most beautiful celebrity spouses”, and rightfully so.

Net Worth: How Rich is Alexis Knief?

Have you ever wondered how affluent Alexis really is? According to several authoritative sources, she has a net worth of approximately $1 million, as of mid-2019. There is no information on how she managed to accumulate this wealth, but it’s most likely that she invested funds in various projects. Being a private person, Alexis never talks about her wealth, nor the origin of it. Her husband, on the other hand, has a whopping $20 million to his name.

Social Media Presence

Thanks to the ever expanding grasp that social media has on worldwide audiences, it is in the best interests of most celebrities to keep their fans informed about their activities and thus maintain and potentially increase their ratings and profit. However, it doesn’t appear as though Alexis is at all preoccupied with maintaining her involvement in this trend, seeing as her presence on social networks is all but ubiquitous at the moment – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts in her name don’t exist. She can be seen on her husband’s various profiles, and when there is a formal event. Various magazines and tabloids have complimented her fashion style, with images of her subsequently flooding social media.
