Alex Cowper-Smith belongs to the world of business. That becomes clear when you look at him. The financier works for the prestigious company Goldman Sachs, one of the largest financial services providers in the world. Dressed in a corporate suit of armor – a black suit – he still looks as drooling as any celebrity comparison you can pick out.
Alex isn’t really a celebrity, and the truth is he might never have been publicly recognized if it hadn’t been for his relationship with a certain British actress with a growing portfolio, Alice Eve. Let’s start at the beginning.
Biography and Age of the celebrity
The information available about Alex Cowper-Smith does not go into too much detail. However, it is known that he was born in the United Kingdom and that he spent his entire childhood and youth there. More specifically, he grew up in England, where he also spent his entire academic career. For his early education, Cowper-Smith spent most of his days away from home, attending boarding school. However, he was often allowed to go home on weekends to spend time with his family.
Alex went through the education system that included the upper school. So after completing primary and secondary school he went to Westminster School to complete the rest of his secondary education. Alex’s occasional visits to his home continued, as Westminster was a co-educational boarding school in London. For Alex’s family, attending Westminster School was a clear route to being accepted into one of the country’s prestigious colleges. The plan paid off for Alex, as after his time at Westminster he was accepted into the famous University of Nottingham in 2000. The College was a proud and cultured institution that was a beacon of homecoming for some of the UK’s most iconic employers. She often saw her graduates leave for these highly paid companies – Alex was not left out in this regard.
After graduating from the University of Nottingham in 2003 with a degree in economics and finance, he immediately set out to find work. The search didn’t take long – he was employed by Goldman Sachs. It looked as if the new graduate had a bright future in the financial industry – and he did. He started as a partner in the conglomerate. Eventually, he climbed up the corporate ladder, and by 2015 he had worked his way up to the position of a financier within the company. By that time he was working as a banker, managing some of the company’s huge accounts.
Alex Cowper-Smith’s family life: Relationship with UK actress, Alice Eve
When Alex Cowper and the beautiful actress Alice Eve started dating, many people wondered how she had become a relatively unknown figure from her celebrity colleagues like Rafe Spall and Rufus Sewell.
But the answer lies in her past – they already knew each other at Westminster School. Alex and Alice did not have the same classes, but they met often between classes. Soon these clashes became intentional as Alex was waiting for their next brief encounter. Eventually, a relationship developed between the two. Unfortunately, the romance lasted as long as their time in Westminster. The two separated not long after graduating from school.
Alice comes from an acting background, thanks to her parents, Trevor Eve & Sharon Maughan, who have both acted in a number of British television series. It is not surprising that she studied acting and then developed into the popular actress she is today. Years later, in 2014, the couple found each other again. By this time both had more stability in their lives and decided to try for a second time. They quickly fell back into the romance they had during their time at Westminster. It went so well, in fact, that Alex asked the question later that year. The couple ended 2014 with a high – they tied the knot on 31 December 2014 – it was a small ceremony in London at the Brompton Oratory.
The entertainment world had become aware – a new celebrity romance had been born. The couple continued to love life and each other. Their fairy tale was not to end, however, as they slowly grew apart.
In early 2017, the couple finally ended the marriage and went separate ways. Since the couple had no children, there were no postmarital obligations for either of them. To the best of their knowledge and belief, however, Alex has not dated anyone since his separation from the actress.
Other facts about Alex Cowper-Smith
1. Alex is a private person
The financier of Goldman Sachs is still a largely unknown figure about whom little or nothing is known. His brief moment in the sun came during his relationship and subsequent marriage to Alice Eve. This shows that Alex is either boring as a person or that he has consciously chosen to keep his private life private.
2. Alex allegedly quit his job to start making things work with Alice
Alex has apparently given his marriage priority over his work. When he realized that things were not getting better at home, he took the shocking step of giving up a lucrative career at Goldman Sachs. Unfortunately, it was too late, as he was no longer able to prevent the breakdown of his marriage.
3. Alice Eve’s schedule was the main reason for the divorce.
Alice was an ambitious actress with a growing influence and portfolio. It was obvious that she would have less time as her career gained momentum. Unfortunately, this meant that Alex began to see his wife less every day. This eventually culminated in them separating from the marriage after failing in their attempt to start a family.
4. Alex still lives in the United Kingdom
After the end of the marriage, many may have expected that Alex wanted to get away from it all, perhaps move to another country, especially since his time at Goldman Sachs was over. It seems, however, that his attachment to the country of his birth is deep. Alex still lives and works in Great Britain.
Alex Cowper-Smith’s Height and Body Measurements
The ex-banker is definitely good to look average; he is neither pretty nor lanky. There is no information from any source that shows his height or any of his body measurements. However, online pictures of Alex standing next to his ex-wife Alice Eve show that he is standing about half a head above her. And since various sources put Alice’s height at 5 feet (1.66 m), it is safe to say that Alex is about 10-15 cm taller than her. This means that he is between 1.75 m and 1.81 m tall, which is about 1.75 m 7 inches.
