Bobby was married to writer and former actress Jenny Lumet, daughter of Sidney Lumet and granddaughter of Lena Horne. He met Jenny when he was acting on stage: "I was doing a theater show and when I bowed for the curtain call, I spotted [her] in the audience. I was playing a character who had AIDS, and when the play was over, I ran out to find her but I forgot to take the lesions off my face," he remembers. He introduced himself to her and recommended that she "stick around. There's a party afterwards and ... I want to talk to you.' We got married six months later."
