So, how did their love story begin?

It all happened in 1994 when Naomi and Bob met during one of the latter's comedy shows in West Hollywood.

Although nothing romantic happened between the duo, Naomi admitted to developing a crush on him but chickened out when her friends tried to introduce them.

The pair again met on one of the movie sets, and she said Bob seemed "disinterested" in her.

Thankfully, the duo again met outside a comedy club in Santa Monica, and this time, they actually met and officially introduced each other.

Later in an interview, Naomi said:

"I didn't know why he finally noticed me. It's not like I suddenly became his type. I still don't think I'm his type, but we get along great."

Naomi and Bob then started dating and hence began the journey of their beautiful life together, first as girlfriend/boyfriend, then husband/wife, and parents, and they still have a long way to go.

Her Duty As His Manager Initially Caused Strain In Their Marriage

There will be arguments, disagreements, fights, and tears in every relationship. But at the end of the day, what matters is how much you are willing to work on your relationship and stick around.

Naomi and Bob Odenkirk also faced a bit of strain in their marraige when the duo started working together.

Work disagreements started taking a toll on their relationship. Bob told The Wall Street Journal in 2020, "We figured it out years ago, but it was very hard for a long time."

He said:

Your manager's job is to have opinions on the work you want to do and help you make choices and maybe be, in the case of Naomi, a really smart, informed person with a point of view. But as an artist, you get a lot of input. You write a script, people read it, they say, 'This is good. That's not good.'

The Better Call Saul actor continued:

"You want your wife or your partner, to care about how it's making you feel and not the thing itself. If I said to Naomi, 'Oh, I wrote this pilot. I turned it in. The network said that they didn't like it,' I don't want her to say, 'Well, they're right.' I want her to say, 'They're a**holes!' If she read it and she didn't like it, she'd be the first one to say, 'this isn't very good.'"

The couple did not let their work pressure affect their relationship and later worked out a way to discriminate between their personal and work life.

Bob Odenkirk: Personal Quotes

  1. I think independent movies are actually very challenging right now, because it was this huge scene and it was great for a few years. Then, it was totally co-opted by the studios. Now, it's become very corporate, the independent scene.
  2. I'm surprised at the opportunity I got. I really am. I'll read a Better Call Saul script and think, Are they really trusting me with this? Are they seriously gonna let me have this moment that they've written for me with the wonderful filmmakers and sensitivity of this project? Breaking Bad came out of nowhere. I thought I'd show up and they'd say, Go home. You're not the Bob Odenkirk we're thinking of. It's the other one, from the Royal Shakespeare Company.
  3. I did have a gut feeling, years ago, that in a dramatic context I could be really impactful. As much as comedy is my first love, it's natural for me to get earnest and honest. I have comedy friends who congenitally can't do that, but I can. In fact, if there's a part of comedy I love, it's that it's a transmission device for honesty - sometimes brutal honesty.
