It wasn't until 2000 with ‘You Can Count On Me’ that Mark met public recognition. He then gives the reply to Robert Redford in The Last Castle (2001) or to Nicolas Cage in Windtalkers (2002). He asserts himself in the roles of romantic comedy and drama, which allow him to rub shoulders with many actresses: Gwyneth Paltrow in View from the Top (2003), Sarah Polley in My Life Without Me (2003), Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30 (2004) and Reese Witherspoon in Just like Heaven (2005).

He then turns under the direction of Martin Scorsese alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the film Shutter Island. After roles in Crazy Night and Tout Va Bien - The Kids Are All Right in 2010, he recovers the role of Bruce Banner, alias Hulk, in the franchise Avengers (2012) then Avengers 2 (2015).
In 2013, Ruffalo joined the filming of the films Elusive which is a great success than the film Begin Again and especially Foxcatcher which allows him to be nominated for the Oscars in the category Best Supporting Actor. The following year, he was nominated again for Spotlight.
Married to the American actress Sunrise Coigney since 2000, Mark Ruffalo is the father of three children: Keen, born in 2001; Bella Noche, born in 2005; and Odette, born in 2007.
In 2008, Mark experienced a personal tragedy after the death of his brother Scott on December 8. Found a bullet in the head on December 1, he succumbed to his injuries a week later. The police conclude with summary execution, only, if there are many suspects, no proof of their guilt could be brought to the investigation. A suspect even explained that Scott shot himself in the head while playing Russian roulette.
A staunch ecologist, he co-founded Water Defense in 2011 to raise public awareness of the impact of shale gas extraction on water and public health. He also set up The Solutions Project in 2012 to demonstrate the efficiency of renewable energies.
