Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his partner Tasha McCauley quietly married on December 20 at their home in Los Angeles, The Daily Mail reports. “I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public,” the actor said in a 2013 interview with Howard Stern. “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of it and you can imagine not wanting to have that kind of scrutiny.”

We’re guessing that’s because she’s busy being a genius, multi-lingual roboticist. McCauley speaks English, Spanish, and Arabic, has an MBA, and is the co-founder and former CEO of Fellow Robots, a company based in Silicon Valley. (“Robotics CEO marries trophy boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt,” tweeted The Cut, offering a deliciously feminist take on the happy, banal piece of celebrity news.)

Here’s McCauley describing how she approaches the unknown, in an interview with Toy & Game Conference: “Optimistically and skeptically! I guess I should clarify that by skeptically, I don’t mean cynically. Both are Greek in origin. Cynical, in early English, denoted faultfinding, while skeptical means “to consider or examine.” I’m skeptical because I love pushing limits in order to understand how things really work. And I’m optimistic because, so far in my life, the unknown has revealed many wonderful possibilities.”
