Getting to know Mellody Hobson AKA Mrs. George Lucas


They have been an item for years  and the finally tied the knot in June 2013.  It is one thing be a steady but when one of the most influential and successful directors in Hollywood make you his wife then you catapult into the limelight.  What is noticeable first about this pair is that it is a union of older man and younger woman?   Or is it the union of African American female and American White male.  Maybe it is simply, that any woman that has the creator of the Star Wars universe  over the moon with love will have inquiring minds wanting to know about her.

The two met at a business conference in 2006. new Mrs. Lucas is quite a dynamic business woman.  A Vanity fair article cites impressive career.  Hobson is the president of a well-respected Chicago money-management firm called Ariel Investments. She’s a board member at Estée Lauder, Starbucks (where she chairs the audit-and-compliance committee), and DreamWorks Animation (where she chairs the entire board). For many years she was a contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America;she now works for CBS News and is on the boards of too many philanthropic organizations.

Obviously, Lucas found her beauty to more than skin deep.
