Personal lifeEdit

Benício was born in Niteroi. As a teenager he liked to surf with friends on the beaches of Rio and Niterói, but stopped after starting work as an actor.[2] He is quoted as saying that Charlie Chaplin inspired him as a young boy to be an actor. His favorite author is Miguel de Cervantes. He stated that as a youth he liked to smoke marijuana with all of his friends and never saw anything wrong with that, despite having stopped to become an actor. He started smoking cigarettes at age 26 and after more than ten years of smoking, he quit the habit. He says he does not drink excessively and, after many years, he returned to do physical exercises.[3]

In 1998 he began dating actress Alessandra Negrini. They moved in together and had a son, actor Antônio Benício, born in the same year. The marriage ended in 1999 because of constant disagreements. They separated before the child even turned 1 year old.[4]

In 1997 he met Carolina Ferraz in telenovela Por Amor and they became friends, but at the time they met she was married. In 1999 Carolina was already separated and they started dating. They lived together, but the relationship lasted until 2001, when Carolina broke up with him because of excessive jealousy of Murilo.[5] In the same year of 2001, he met Giovanna Antonelli. They started dating in 2002 and a few months later they were living together. In 2004 they separated for a few months, but they reconciled and had a son, Pietro, born in 2005. In the same year, they separated because of irreconcilable differences.[6] [7]

In October, 2012, Benício, during a talk show, said he was in a relationship with actress Débora Falabella. After a long time of speculation, the two decided to take courtship. According to the actor, the couple kept the relationship under wraps during the recording of the telenovela Avenida Brasil, who had already separated from their ex recently.[8]
