Married, Husband, Wedding
She was married to actor and comedian Rowan Atkinson, aka Mr. Bean.
She first met him in 1986 when she worked as a make-up artist for ‘Black Adde,’ the BBC1 pseudo-historical situational comedy.
They dated for three years and got engaged in late 1989. The couple tied the wedding knot in February 1990 at the famous Russian Tea Room in New York City. Rowan’s best man was Stephen Fry.
In 1993 they were blessed with their first child Benjamin. Two years later, in 1995, they were blessed with a daughter whom they named Lily.
Benjamin Alexander Sebastian Atkinson is a trainee officer, while Lily Sastry is an actress known for her roles in movies like Johnny English Reborn, Mr. Bean’s Holiday, and Tooth.
Sunetra and her husband Rowan were living a happy married life until a new woman came between them.
Their 24 years of marriage started deteriorating when Rowan started dating an actress named Louise Ford in February 2014.
Rowan and Louise met in Simon Gray’s play ‘Quartermaine’s Terms’ which premiered in 2013.
Sunetra could not take this anymore and filed a petition for divorce. Her petition was granted within 65 seconds as her husband was not present for his hearing. She received a $10 million worth of mansion from her ex-husband as a part of the divorce deal.
Their daughter Lily was angry at her father for his actions and called her father “Dick Head” on social media.
She also decided not to use her father’s surname and adopted her mother’s maiden name, Sastry.
Their son Benjamin too didn’t seem happy and was in no way interested in following in his father’s footsteps.
Rowan has a child from his second wife, Louise Ford.
Rowan Atkinson affair
Rowan and Louise's affair started in 2014. But before dating Rowan, Louise was dating comedian James Acaster.
James said that he found out about his then-girlfriend dumping him and dating Rowan by reading it in a newspaper.
James felt that the distance between him and Louise began to grow when she took the role in Quartermaine's Terms at Wyndham's Theatre in 2013 alongside Rowan.
Louise and James were in a relationship for two years when Louise dumped James for Rowan. James also keeps on joking about him being got left for Mr. Bean.
Rowan is 28 years older than Louise, but the age factor did not stop them from falling for each other. They have a daughter named Isla Atkinson, born in December 2017.

Her ex Rowan Atkinson recalls the funny incident of getting told he is the spitting image of Mr. Bean
While appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Atkinson was asked if holidays are misery and if he could go anywhere?
Atkinson said he couldn’t go to many places where he was not recognized.
He finds the trickiest things to be not getting recognized particularly but being half recognized where people stare a lot.
Humorously he added, he has the sort of feeling where he wishes the person to not stare at him, but rather he would hold up a flag saying, "Yes, it’s me."
He recalled a funny incident where he was told that he looked like Mr. Bean. According to him, he was at a Land Rover parts department near Peterborough waiting for the car parts.
He was standing around with a group of guys, and a guy was staring at him. After a while, he came up to him and said,
“Excuse me, has anyone ever told you that you are the absolute spitting image of that Mr.Bean”?
Atkinson replied that he is the actor who plays Mr. Bean. The guy, with a witty smile, said,
“I bet you wish you were.”
The guy was not ready to accept it.
The more Atkinson was trying to claim he was the actual one he thought he merely resembled, the less he believed him and instead said the resemblance to be uncanny.
Then he asked if he ever thought of doing any look-alike work like stag nights and hen nights and even suggested that he could go along as Mr. Bean so that he could make a good fortune.
Atkinson added that he had to bring the conversation to a close because the guy was not ready to believe plus it was clear he was getting annoyed that Atkinson was pursuing the line of “I am Rowan Atkinson" when clearly the guy thought he was total arse who just because he happened to look a bit like Mr. Bean, goes around the country, actually claiming to be Mr. Bean.
