Before we get ourselves involved with the real subject, you guys should know her life before McKean became her part. After being in the marriage bond with Bill Geisslinger for almost ten years, she felt they were not meant for each other. So the couple split in 1993. They had two beautiful girls together, Anna and Nell.
Annette comes from a mixed line of ancestors including Irish and Scottish. Now that makes more sense why O’Toole looks unbelievably charming and still is for the woman of age 65 and seems like she has passed her beauty secret onto her daughters.

Later O’Toole married Michael in 1999. Even though they had met each other before but it was not until the shooting for the movie, Final Justice in 1997, the couple had noticed each other. Gradually they carried their romance through emails for a long time before tying the knot.
Michael is both an actor and a comedian, which seems to have done the magic. Michael with his humorous skills and Annette, with her elegance, are complimenting each other perfectly well. But, it was her generosity, confidence, and charm that pulled Michael toward her, according to sources.

A glimpse of the chemistry between Michael and Annette can be observed from their on-stage performance of the song, called ‘A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow’ at the 2004 Academy Awards ceremony. As a matter of fact, the duo had written that song for the Christopher Guest musical mockumentary 'A Mighty Wind' (2003) which was nominated for Oscar too.
