Who Is His Girlfriend or Wife?

In 2004, barely 3 years after his divorce from Reiss, he married the American humorist Mishna Wolff. Sadly, the marriage ended in 2007 after only 3 years.
Maron then began dating and getting engaged to Jessica Sanchez, only to announce their separation in an episode of his podcast in October 2013. In another podcast that aired on February 10, 2014, Marc publicly announced that he was in a relationship with Moon Zappa. Unfortunately, the relationship did not last up to 3 months.

The comic actor stands high at a height of 1.8 m, which is about 5 feet 10 inches. He weighs 78 kg and tries to keep his weight as much as possible by exercising three or four times a week.
Shortly before his interview with Jon Hamm in an episode of his WTF podcast, Marc Maron revealed that he had gained ten pounds along the way and was so cool about it that he was ready to change his pants size and continue to enjoy his food and live his life. However, the comedian later turned around and vowed to go on a 4-hour body diet rather than allow this to happen.
