Tommy Lee Jones has two failed marriages under his belt – but one special woman finally captured his heart

Spread the love

Tommy Lee may be an accomplished actor, but some would argue he wouldn’t be where he is today without the love of his life, Dawn Laurel-Jones, to whom he’s been married since 2001.

The well-known Texan, renowned for his roles in films like ‘The Fugitive,’ ‘JFK,’ and ‘Lincoln,’ first met his future wife in 1995 while they were both working on the same film project.

Three years later, in March 1998, Jones and Laurel-Jones made their first public appearance as a couple on the red carpet.

The couple has been dedicated supporters of The Climate Reality Project, an organization founded by Jones’ close friend Al Gore. In 2012, they embarked on an expedition to Antarctica with the group and participated in an auction in London where Laurel-Jones sold some of her photographs from the expedition. “She took some beautiful pictures there. Of course, the ice is melting, and these pictures dramatized that somewhat. They’re very beautiful pictures. She sold 17, and that brought in a little over $401,000 to support this organization that we actually are a part of,” the actor told The Independent.
So who is Dawn Laurel-Jones?

In 1995, the now-husband-and-wife first crossed paths on the set of ‘The Good Old Boys.’ Aside from starring in the movie, it was Jones’ TV directorial debut. Laurel-Jones worked as an assistant camera operator.

At the time, Jones was still married to his second wife, Kimberlea Cloughley, whom he ended up divorcing in 1996.

Eventually, the couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in March, 2001, in Alamo Heights, Texas. Laurel-Jones’ sister, Deborah, who is an architect, even designed the groom’s quarters on the couple’s property, according to The New Yorker.

Jones already had two children from his previous marriage to Cloughley, Austin and Victoria, which meant that Laurel-Jones became their stepmother. The couple has an unusual past time

Interestingly enough, and not unlike the royal family, Jones and his wife are keen polo players. In fact, in 2006 funded two teams that included himself and his wife, six professional polo players, and over 50 horses!

For six months the teams spent time as Jones’ farm and stables in Florida, with Jones telling The Texas Monthly: “We are at the top of our game. We can beat anybody, anytime, anywhere.”

As for Laurel-Jones, playing polo was new to her when she began her relationship with Jones. And despite never having played before meeting him, Jones said his wife was “one of the best women polo players in the country” even though “she didn’t even know how to ride a horse 10 years ago.”
