Boyfriend / Spouse
Sara Foster has dated –
- Ashley Hamilton (2000) – Sara was briefly engaged to actor/singer & songwriter Ashley Hamilton when she was barely out of her teens. However, their relationship did not last long. One of the reasons behind their split could have been Ashley’s tumultuous youth. Throughout his 20’s and early 30’s, he was battling eating disorders, Bulimia and Anorexia along with alcohol and drug addiction.
- Leonardo DiCaprio (2002–2003) – She briefly dated the Hollywood superstar while he was on a 6-month break from his relationship with supermodel Gisele Bündchen.
- David Spade (2004) – Comedian-actor David Spade was rumored to be dating Sara Foster for a little while in 2004 amid his long string of relationships with a lot of famous women.
- Benicio Del Toro Sánchez (2004–2006) – Sara had a very public relationship with the Puerto Rican-American, Oscar-winning actor for a few years in her early 20s. She had a party girl reputation at that time while Benicio, though an A-list actor, was well-known for his womanizing ways. The two pacified their crazy lifestyles by grounding themselves in each other’s company but the stability was not meant to last. Benicio moved on from Sara, tempted by a brief fling with Lindsay Lohan in 2006.
- Mark Sayers McGrath (2006) – The lead singer of the rock band Sugar Ray, Mark Sayers McGrath, was Sara’s rebound relationship after Benicio. They were spotted together at various social events.
- Thomas Mario Haas aka Tommy Haas (2006–Present) – Sara first spotted her husband-to-be on TV, playing a tennis match in 2004 and found him attractive. In 2006, she ran into the German tennis player at a dinner party while accompanying mutual friends and got herself introduced. As much as she wanted to date him right away, Sara was due to move to Prague temporarily for a film project while Tommy was also constantly on the road for his tennis matches. They became email buddies and established a strong connection. In 2007, Sara started attending Tommy’s matches and learned everything about tennis to become a constant source of support for him. After getting to know each other for 2 years, Tommy proposed to his lady love on Christmas Eve in 2008. Together, the couple has two daughters – Valentina Evelyn Haas (b.

- Playing the role of Jen Clark in the teen drama television series 90210 from 2009 to 2012.
First TV Show
Her first TV show appearance was on the talk show in an episode of Entourage in 2004.
To maintain her lean frame, Sara claims to have tried every popular exercise regime in Los Angeles ranging from the Tracy Anderson method, Pilates Plus to Hot Yoga. She believes in the effectiveness of an intense workout and feels that unless you are dying out of breath during a workout, you are not really transforming your body. According to her, going through the motions at a comfortable pace does not cut it.
Sara still holds the most faith in conventional weight training. Whenever she is short on time, she prioritizes a workout at home or at the nearest gym to do a basic full body circuit of planks, push-ups, squats, lunges, jumping rope, and sprints on the treadmill.
To keep things interesting she catches up with her friends or her sister during the personal training session or opts for a group exercise class such as at Pilates Platinum, Body By Simone studio or LekFit dance fitness class. Stress easily shows on her face, hence, she tries to incorporate a meditation program every now and then.
Sara does not subscribe to dietary restrictions because it makes her cranky. She enjoys indulging in junk foods but avoids consuming soda/sugary soft drinks and candy/popular confectioneries. Also, she drinks alcohol only on very special occasions and avoids it as much as possible.
Her daily dietary consumption looks as follows –
- Breakfast – Late breakfast of eggs, toast, and avocado accompanied with a cup of coffee that she cannot do without.
- Lunch – Kale smoothie with protein powder from a local juice shop followed by a Turkey salad or a sandwich for lunch.
- Dinner – Her options vary between gluten-free spaghetti bolognese, salmon with rice and veggies, chicken and mashed potatoes or a Lebanese takeout meal from a nearby restaurant.
