Relationship – Love Life, Marriage or Boyfriend

Becoming a celebrity was a dream for Toni in her twenties, and she was earnest about achieving her dream and felt stressed and upset. She has bulimia disease; in this disease, a patient eats a lot of food and then becomes sick. At the same time, she was suffering from panic attacks and felt scared for eight months. During panic attacks, she feels intense pain in her chest, can’t see correctly, and sweats.

She traveled to many places. Surprisingly, she shaved her head five times and one time to get a role in the film. She bought a flat in Brixton, London, to think about and understand her life correctly. She had a plan to live here permanently but, one day, she saw a badly hurt man with a pole near her residence, so she left that place immediately.

While working in the “Velvet Goldmine” movie, she met with Jonathan Rhys Meyers. After spending almost one year together, their relationship broke up. Later, she met with Dave Galafassi (a musician) at a 2002 party. After one year of relationship, they married in January 2003. They have two kids: a daughter (Sage Florence), born in January 2008, and a son (Arlo Robert), born in April 2011. She likes to go to comping and meditate to spend her leisure time. They lived in Sydney, Australia, but later moved to Los Angeles, USA. Then, in 2019, they went back to Sydney. Sadly, in December 2022, they ended their marriage life.
