Harvey Weinstein's first wife Eve Chilton was an assistant

Much is known about Harvey Weinstein's decades-long career as a executive as well as his relationship with designer Georgina Chapman, but the same can not be said about his first marriage.

Eve Chilton was working as an assistant for Weinstein at Miramax back in 1986 when she caught her boss' attention, and within a year the two were exchanging vows.

At that time there were no films with Oscar buzz or parties filled with A-list stars surrounding the couple, and Weinstein was far from the wealthy executive he would become one day.

Eve on the other hand was the well-off daughter of a prominent New England family who enjoyed summers on Martha's Vineyard, meaning that it was Weinstein who appeared to be marrying above his rank.

And for the next two decades, as the money started pouring in and the A-list stars piled on, Eve stood quietly by her husband's side while giving birth to their three daughters: Lilly (22), Emma (19) and Ruth (14), who was born just two years before the couple split.

The couple's union came crashing down in 2004 however, and they soon went on their separate ways after agreeing to the terms of their divorce,.

In Weinstein's case that was into the arms of the two-decades younger British-born designer Chapman, with whom he now has a daughter India, 7, and 4-year-old son Dashell.

In the case of Eve it was to towards a more peaceful existence in the suburbs, where she remarried Sal Martirano.

The couple quickly combined their families as well, with Eve's new husband having two sons from his previous relationship that were roughly the same age as her daughters.

Photos of the pair on Facebook show the mother-of-three beaming alongside her new beau.

That was not always the case during her time with Weinstein, with Eve usually seen trailing him on a red carpet or sitting silently beside her husband as he shook hands and schmoozed with whenever he got the chance at events and openings.

And Eve was no fan of small talk or public spectacle according to those who interviewed her husband.

Among the many major profiles of Weinstein that ran over the years in publications such as Vanity Fair, New York, the New Yorker and The New York Times there was little to no mention of Eve and never a single comment from the wife of America's most infamously temperamental film executive.

That was because Eve, unlike her husband, did not care to be a public person or offer up any private information about her family.

This approach was likely the result of her upbringing and her family's ties to some of this nation's most esteemed forefathers.
