Mark Ruffalo Eggplant Parmigiana

Mark Ruffalo Eggplant Dish

NOT hulk so much as hunk, this Marvel-ous actor has been in the business for a good while now, with his roots in acting stretching as far back as 1989, when he appeared in the anthology series CBS Summer Playhouse. And while he had a few high-profile movies under his belt such as 13 Going On 30 in 2004 and Zodiac in 2007, it can be argued that Mark stepped fully into the limelight when he took up the mantle of Dr Bruce Banner, the Jekyll to Hulk’s Hyde in the 2012 superhero film The Avengers. As an ordinary mortal, though, Mark’s had his fair share of challenges to overcome.

He struggled from undiagnosed dyslexia and ADD as a child, and in 2002 was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Luckily it was benign and was successfully removed with surgery. It may have led to a partial face paralysis, but that obviously hasn’t affected his acting chops! Mark is married to actress Sunrise Coigney, with whom he has three children: Keen, Bella and Odette. As to what gets him seeing red (or perhaps we should say green) in real life, Mark says greed makes him angry. Which would probably be a problem for us if he saw us around a dish of his delicious eggplant parmigiana!
