The Night at the Museum star revealed the news during an interview with Esquire. "We were separated and got back together and we're happy about that" Stiller explained.
The actor cited the ongoing COVID pandemic as the key reason for the couple's reuniting. "It's been really wonderful for all of us. Unexpected, and one of the things that came out of the pandemic," he told the outlet.
Stiller and Taylor met in 1999 while filming a scrapped TV pilot for FOX called Heat Vision and Jack. The two got married less than a year later, and have acted in several projects together such as Zoolander, Dodgeball, Tropic Thunder, Arrested Development, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
They share two kids — daughter Ella Olivia, 19, and son Quinlin Dempsey "Quinn" Stiller, 16.
Stiller and Taylor surprisingly broke up in 2017 after being married for over 17 years.
The Meet The Fockers actor attempted to use a horse metaphor to explain his marriage to Taylor. "A few years ago, I realized I don’t like horseback riding. If there’s an opportunity to go horseback riding, I’m probably not going to do it. Now, I like horses! I think they’re beautiful. I like petting them," the actor said, pausing, "So, yeah, I think we have a respect for the ways that we’re similar and the ways we're different."
Stiller pointed out that he's come to accept their differences, now viewing them as a good thing. '"This is something that works for me; this is something that doesn’t work for me," he stated. "If you have that trust level with your partner, you know that me saying, 'I don’t like doing that thing' is not me saying, 'I don't like you."'
