The iconic filmmaker behind Star Wars and Indiana Jones turned 80 on May 14. While Lucas does not frequently work in the film industry anymore (he last received an executive producer credit on 2023's Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and has not directed a movie since 2005's Revenge of the Sith), he is spending quality time with his wife of nearly 11 years, Mellody Hobson.

Hobson is the president and co-CEO of Chicago-based investment firm Ariel Investments, and she has also worked as Starbucks's chairperson of its board of directors since March 2021 and previously was the chairperson of DreamWorks Animation.

Lucas and Hobson met at a business conference in 2005 and began dating some time after their initial meeting, according to a 2015 Vanity Fair profile on Hobson. After dating for several years, the pair announced their engagement in January 2013 and later married in June 2013 at a star-studded ceremony at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, California.

Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Howard, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey were among the guests at that wedding, PEOPLE reported at the time.

The couple held a second party a week later in Hobson's hometown Chicago, which Robin Williams, Mark Hamill, Al Roker and Gayle King attended and Prince performed at, as The Hollywood Reporter reported at the time.
