Wife – Julianna Margulies
Keith’s wife Julianna initially found popularity in the TV medical drama “ER”, playing the character Carol Hathaway. The show was created by novelist Michael Crichton and ran for a total of 15 seasons from 1994 to 2009, following the life of a fictional hospital’s emergency room (ER) – the show would become the longest running primetime medical drama in the history of American television. After her run with the show, she voiced the character Neera in “Dinosaur”, before appearing in the series “The Mists of Avalon” which is based on the 1983 novel of the same name written by Marion Zimmer Bradley. The show is a retelling of the Arthurian legend, but this time with a focus on Morgan le Fay.
In 2009, she was cast in what became her second most notable lead role in the show “The Good Wife”, playing Alicia Florrick, and for which she won two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and a Television Critics Award. The show follows the wife of an attorney who returns to her career in law after her husband becomes involved in a political corruption scandal. She has won eight Screen Actor Guild Awards over the course of her career, so after Julia Louis-Dreyfus being her the second most awarded woman in SAG.
Margulies was in a relationship from 1991 to 2003 with actor Ron Eldard, whom she met while in an acting class. Four years later it was announced that she had married Keith Lieberthal, who is six years her junior, but which appears irrelevant, and the couple now reside in Lennox, Massachusetts. They have a son together and there have been no reported problems with their marriage, althoughe Keith remains mostly out of the spotlight.

One of the reasons Lieberthal has a lot of knowledge when it comes to international affairs is due to his father, who is an expert when it comes to foreign policy, having a focus on China’s politics and economy, and who continues to work despite being 75 years old, serving with the Brookings Institution as a senior fellow emeritus. He is also one of the reasons Keith had a lot of connections within the government during the start of his career.
Despite the fame of his wife, Keith has managed to keep a big portion of his life away from the media spotlight. One of the contributing factors to this is due to the lack of any online or social media presence, even with major sites Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. He has appeared in public with his wife on several occasions, and has also been with her throughout the support of their various advocacies. His wife also doesn’t have any personally managed social media accounts, with most of what is available online being fan-based accounts. There are also a lot of photo shoots and videos of her appearances available on the website YouTube.
