Indeed, the couple has homes all over the United States, including in Los Angeles and New York.
Bill Pullman and Tamara Hurwitz
Bill Pullman and Tamara Hurwitz are still together after a long and epic 33 years of marriage. Three kids made their relationship a whole lot better. Their sons, Lewis and Jack, and their daughter, Maesa, are the couple’s pride and joy. Their eldest child, Maesa, is now a singer-songwriter. Jack has followed in his parent’s footsteps and has become an actor. The same goes for Lewis — in fact, he is already getting recognized in the industry.
These lovebirds met 40 years ago when they were both acquiring their college degree at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Ironically, Bill and Tamara were cast for Impromptu at Versailles as husband and wife. Seven years later they turned this into reality as they tied the knot on January 3, 1987. They became one of Hollywood’s most admired couples out there. Now they live in their Beachwood Canyon property to accommodate their large family.
Bryan Cranston and Robin Dearden
As famous celebrities, it came naturally for Bryan Cranston and Robin Dearden to keep their relationship private, away from the public’s prying eyes, as they dealt with personal matters. However, how they met is quite known.
These two lovebirds first crossed-paths on the set of the TV series, Airwolf. Bryan was directing and Robin was acting in it. Their infatuation for each other grew as they started dating as filming began. In 1989, they decided it was time for their long-awaited marriage. Since they were both rising stars at that time, they figured it was best not to have kids right away. A few years later Robin gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter named Taylor, who is now following in her parent’s footsteps. She is now making her own way into the entertainment industry, giving credit to Bryan and Robin for their influence and support as she pursues her dreams.
Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
Their relationship is 31 years and counting. As one of Hollywood’s most admired couples, Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham are the epitome of a long-lasting relationship filled with love and respect. They met at a 1986 charity event. It was the reason why these two are madly in love with each other to this very day. It was the same year the first season of The Oprah Winfrey Show started. In 1992 they were happy to announce their engagement. Stedman was already 41 years old and Oprah was 31.
Giving credit to their mature age, it was no surprise that their relationship is as healthy as ever. Surprisingly though, Oprah and Stedman never got around to having the wedding of the century — but the reason is not as juicy as you think. They just really never got around to doing it. However, it is without a doubt that their love is indeed true and that they don’t need to have a wedding to affirm their relationship. They are extremely confident about their love for each other.
Tina Turner and Erwin Bach
Singer-songwriter, Tina Turner and actor, Erwin Bach may have a 16-year-age difference but they are making it work. They were head over heels for each other. The iconic legend was 47, while Erwin was 30 years old when they finally decided to tie the knot on July 4, 2013.
People would do a lot of unimaginable things for the people they love. When Tina faced a health issue Erwin immediately stepped in and offered her one of his kidneys. Initially, Tina refused, but Erwin insisted because, for him, his wife’s future is his future. If this isn’t the sweetest act of love, I don’t know what is. This couple’s combined net worth is $300 million. Their investments include a wonderful house in the South of France, complete with antiques from Rome and Greece. However, Erwin and Tina spend most of their time living in Germany.

They share two beautiful children, Annie and Thomas, both of whom are adults now.
It was 2004 and Jamie was hanging out with her friend when she saw an essay in The Oprah Magazine. This was where she first saw Christopher and said she was going to marry him. Ironically she did, on December 18, 1984. To this day they are still madly in love with each other.

Together, they have a combined net worth of $60 million, and their investments are mostly from their prominence in the entertainment industry.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
One of the most legendary Hollywood couples, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, has been together for 36 years and are still crazy about each other. This famous on-screen duo turned real-life lovers. They met on the set of the Disney movie, The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band back in 1966, but it wasn’t until 1983 on the set of Swing Shift when they started going out. They welcomed their first child together, Wyatt Russell, in 1986, and he is now 33 years old. He gives credit to his parents for inspiring him to follow in their footsteps.
Unlike most couples who have been together for more than three decades, these love birds are not going to be tying the knot soon. In fact, they are perfectly fine without marriage. They already feel devoted to each other, and they feel secure about the love that they have for each other. In 2017, they both received a dual star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — they even shared a smooch during the ceremony.
Ricky Gervais and Jane Fallon
It’s been 38 years, but Ricky Gervais and Jane Fallon are still happily married. They started going out when they were getting their college degree from the University College of London.

It may come as a surprise to some of their fans but these lovebirds are not yet married and have no plans of tying the knot soon. But, that doesn’t invalidate their feelings for each other. They have been together for almost four decades and counting and they are still head over heels for each other.
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman have been together for almost two decades, but like most couples, they have had their fair share of ups and downs.

But, as soon as Felicity realized how deeply in love she was with her man, she finally agreed to marry him. Their wedding took place on September 6, 1997. They share two daughters, Sophia Grace and Georgia Grace.
This lovely couple met at New York City’s Atlantic Theater Company in the ’80s. Felicity was instantly smitten at the sight of William. She boldly talked him into dating her. She basically asked him out. Even as this beautiful pair took things slowly, they bonded over how much they love acting and film. As their own individual careers took off, so did their relationship. They even received their Hollywood Walk of Fame stars on the same day. The degree of love they have for each other is truly inspiring.
Mark and Marilou Hamill
Mark Hamill rose to international prominence when he commanded Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber in the classic science-fiction franchise, Star Wars. His performance in the films gained him an army of loyal fans that would follow his career until the 21st century. However, outside of his Jedi responsibilities, Hamill is just a regular guy looking for romance amid his rising fame. Love came his way in the form of Marilou York, and the two started seeing each other. Despite a brief hiccup in their relationship, the love they shared proved to be a force to be reckoned with. The couple eventually tied the knot in December of 1978 and have been together ever since.

The comedian had to leave for work in Chicago the following day but subsequently flew back to the Big Apple to find her love. The couple’s relationship is one of the biggest gifts to the entertainment industry.
Their collaboration in several projects as actor and writer has led to successful shows such as The Incredible Shrinking Woman and The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.

The couple has been together for around half a century.
Jeff Bridges and Susan Geston Bridges
Jeff Bridges and his wife Susan Geston have built a marriage that has passed the pressures of Hollywood along with the test of time. Jeff met Susan in 1975 while he was filming Rancho Deluxe in Montana. The twenty-four-year-old Jeff was hit with an electricity-like infatuation upon seeing Susan. It did not take long for the two to hit it off, and soon the twenty-year-old Susan moved in with the actor to California.
After being together for two years, the Starman actor finally asked the question and put the ring on Susan’s finger in June of 1977. They have been inseparable ever since their first meeting. They’ve been a couple for over forty years and are blessed with three daughters. They welcomed their first daughter, Isabelle, in 1981 who was then followed by her sister, Jessica, in 1983.

Prolific filmmaker Ron Howard made his ever-enduring mark in the entertainment industry with film credits such as A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Thanks to his countless contributions to Hollywood, the Oscar-winning director/actor has received not just one, but two stars in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, behind his successful career is a four-decade-long marriage to his high school sweetheart, Cheryl Alley. With the hustle and bustle of show business, it is hard to imagine how the couple was able to keep their relationship stronger than ever. Howard credits communication as a big factor in making it work along with their undeniable compatibility.
The couple tied the knot in June of 1975 and have been blessed with four children. Their eldest daughter Bryce, born in 1981, went on to become an actress. Their twins, Paige and Jocelyn, were born in 1985 while their only son, Reed, was born in 1987.
Billy Crystal and Janice Goldfinger
Billy Crystal has been making the world laugh out loud since his rise to fame in the 70s. His portrayal of Jodie Dallas in the TV show Soap has earned him a hoard of fans across generations. Following the end of the sitcom in 1981, Crystal went on to star in several box office hits such as When Harry Met Sally, Throw Momma from the Train, and Parental Guidance. However, outside of his successful career is an equally successful marriage of fifty-one years to Janice Goldfinger.
Their marriage might be half a century old but the couple first started dating way back in 1966. It was like their love story was written for the books. The comedian credits his lucky stars in having found the right match for him at the early age of 18. As they grew together, Crystal and Goldfinger welcomed their daughters Lindsay and Jennifer to complete their happily-ever-after.
Dolly Parton and Carl Dean
Dolly Parton’s career is as bright as her bedazzled costumes and out-of-this-world performances. She has made a legend of herself and became an icon in the music industry. Her hit singles From Here to the Moon and Back, Jolene, and Forever Love have serenaded the hearts of hopeless romantics all around the globe. However, these love songs came from a deeper and more personal space in the singer’s life. Carl Dean, her husband of fifty-five years, was actually the inspiration behind the hit ballads.
The couple’s marriage has been through all the tests that time could give and they have emerged inseparable ever since their first meeting in the 60s. After finishing his two years of service in the army, Carl married Dolly in May of 1966. Despite Dolly’s undeniable degree of fame, she and her doting husband made their union work. Carl has always had her back and was even featured on the cover of her album My Blue Ridge Mountain Boy.
William Daniels and Bonnie Bartlett
William Daniels and Bonnie Bartlett have been married for 70 years and have been inseparable since. They first met at Northwestern University while pursuing their college degrees. As actors, they worked together as husband-and-wife, playing Mark and Ellen Craig in the television series St. Elsewhere. Their performance in the show earned them their respective Emmys on the same night in 1986. Daniels and Bartlett once again played on-screen couples — George Feeny and Dean Bolander — in Boy Meets World. Both characters became endeared to the show’s fans.
Daniels and Bartlett tied the knot in June of 1951. Together, the couple shares a child who was born in 1961. Later on, they adopted two sons to add to their family. Even at ages 93 and 91 today, the couple remains strong and bound by their love for each other.
Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo
While they’ve only married since 2015, actress Amy Adams and painter Darren Le Gallo have been together for quite some time. They first met at an acting class back in 2001 and subsequently dated a year later while collaborating for a short film. In 2008, they got engaged, and two years later, Adams gave birth to their daughter, Aviana. In 2015, they finally sealed the deal and got married.
While Adams has a high profile as an actress, her family maintains a low-key life. According to Adams’ interviews, she admitted that Le Gallo is the primary caregiver but that she is just as committed as her husband to their child. In addition, the husband and wife tend to have weekly date nights as part of their routine. Today, the family lives in a $3.1 million Beverly Hills mansion, bought through an investment trust. Even with their highly public life, the couple and their daughter have maintained a healthy and loving relationship.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard knew each other through Maggie’s brother Jake, who is the latter’s close friend. However, they did not have romantic feelings for one another until 2002, when they began to date. In 2006, they became engaged and three years later, on May 2, 2009, they tied the knot in a small chapel in Southern Italy. Together, they have two children, Ramona, born in October 2006, and Gloria Ray, born in April 2012.
They currently live in a townhouse in Brooklyn but they listed the house for sale for $4.6 million. They were able to sell it and get a $2.7 million return of investment since they bought the house for $1.91 million in 2006. While the couple has separate but successful acting careers, they worked together recently for the upcoming film The Lost Daughter. It was the directorial debut of Gyllenhaal — the film was directed and produced by her and had Sarsgaard among the cast.
Viola Davis and Julius Tennon
Already inspiring in their own right, the power couple Viola Davis and Julius Tennon became an influential force in Hollywood. Their first meeting seemed to be straight out of a fairy tale. After praying for a husband, Davis’s prayers were answered when she met Tennon three and a half weeks later. In 2003, they tied the knot and in 2011, they adopted an infant, who they named Genesis. Prior to that, Tennon shared two sons from his previous marriages, who are also Davis’ stepchildren.
Since then, the couple has been active in a number of causes, mainly for social justice. In 2018, they founded JuVee Productions as a way of encouraging diversity in Hollywood and to welcome investments in shows produced by people of color. As for their family life, they remain inseparable and happy after nearly 18 years of marriage.
Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman
Fashion designer Rachel Zoe and investment banker Rodger Berman remain strong and inseparable after 23 years of marriage. They first met in D.C. during their college years and became romantically involved. After graduation, Berman moved with Zoe to New York, and eventually, they tied the knot in February 1998. Together, they have two sons — Skyler, born in 2011, and Kaius, born in 2013.
After working for eight years in an investment company, Berman devoted his time and skill towards the management of Zoe’s ever-growing fashion business by being President of Rachel Zoe Inc. With Berman at the helm, Zoe’s fashion line expanded to include a daily newspaper called The Zoe Report, a reality TV series called The Rachel Zoe Project, and collaborations with fashion brands such as Lindex, Gap, and Nordstrom. Since then, both Berman and Zoe remain close and committed not only to the brand but to their family, as well.
Sting and Trudie Styler

Outside of their work, the couple dedicated themselves towards various causes by pouring investments, raising awareness, and conducting outreach programs. They are among the patrons of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. They also co-founded the Rainforest Foundation Fund in 1989, which advocates for rainforest protection and indigenous rights. Aside from their philanthropy, they also became known for their numerous properties. Among them, a $50 million house was sold in 2017. Despite their high profile, the couple and their children remain happier than ever.
Joel McHale and Sarah Williams
Known for his high-profile projects such as Tiger King and Community, a lot of people may be surprised that Joel McHale has been married for 24 years to Sarah Williams. They first met in 1995 and it was immediately love at first sight. The next year, they tied the knot with friends and family in attendance. Together, they share two children. They welcomed their first son Edward in 2005. Their second son Isaac Hayden followed in 2008.
While McHale is an actor, Williams is an artist by trade, with a focus on nature. They’ve been living in California since 2000. In 2006, they bought a house in Los Angeles for $1.88 million and listed it for $2.4 million in 2016, with a return of investment of around $600,000. Despite the listing, the couple and their children remain happy and strong, despite ups and downs.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Aside from his notable career as a musician for Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne is also known for his relationship with his wife Sharon.

Since then, the family has made several shows derived from The Osbournes, with the latest one released in 2020. Although Ozzy postponed his tour in 2019, the couple is still living large, with a net worth of $220 million, mostly from royalties, investments, and tour incomes.
Matt and Luciana Damon – 14 Years
Matt Damon is one of the most prominent names in Hollywood. He has been in some of the best films of all time such as the 1997 box office hit Good Will Hunting. Who could also forget him as Jason Bourne in the Bourne film series? Of course, we can’t forget his exceptional roles in Interstellar or Saving Private Ryan as well. The point is, the star is phenomenal. That’s why it comes as no surprise that the star attracts attention wherever he goes. This ultimately led him to his now-wife, Luciana Barroso.
He met Barroso while he was in the middle of filming for the movie Stuck on You. The crew decided to go out for drinks one night, and Damon was present. They ended up at Barroso’s nightclub. Adoring fans almost immediately recognized the star and soon got a little too excited. Damon exited the scene to the back of the club and that’s where he hit it up with Barroso. In 2005 they got married and they are now on their way to their 15th year of marriage. They now have three kids, and with successful parents like that, they will most probably never need any student loans!
Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance – 23 Years
Let’s talk about one of Hollywood’s power couples, Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance. Bassett has been in the industry for more than 3 decades. In those years she has accumulated not only prominent roles but dozens of honors as well. Vance has acquired an equally amazing portfolio. He has been active for 3 decades and has garnered plenty of recognition.
As they’ve said, the third time’s a charm. It wasn’t love at first sight when the two met. They first met at Yale School of Drama where the actress was working to get her degree. Vance mused that he rarely remembers Basset from that time. A decade later they met again and went on a date. This time, Basset said it wasn’t a memorable one. It was actually supposed to end there. However, a second date did happen and that’s when the sparks flew, and the rest is history. They got married in 1997 and currently have twins.
Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham – 9 Years
Who could forget Cade Yeager from the Transformers franchise? The credit for the role goes to Mark Wahlberg. He is one of the most talented personalities in Hollywood. His adventurous soul has made him not only an actor but a rapper and a restaurateur as well!
In 2001 he started dating American model Rhea Durham. Wahlberg first asked Durham for a church date. He explained that religion was of importance to him and so he wanted to incorporate it into their relationship early on. That made a lasting impression on the model. The two got married in 2009 and they currently have four children — Ella Rae, Grace Margaret, Michael, and Brendan Joseph. They both came from big families and they’ve always wanted the same for their children. Both are still active in their respective fields today but are making sure that they always spend time with the family.
Michael Caine And Shakira Baksh – 47 Years
Michael Caine is one of the oldest and most treasured names in Hollywood. He has been in the industry for more than six decades. In this time, he has been a part of more than a hundred films and has accumulated dozens of honors to his credit. Now, what could possibly be more amazing and magical than all this?
Caine’s story on how he met his now-wife, Shakira Baksh, is something out of the movies. The actor first saw her in a commercial and immediately fell in love. You don’t typically see someone in a commercial and devise a plan to go to Brazil to see them. So no, it was not just a simple crush. It took some time and a lot of effort but he finally got to meet her. Reportedly, she rejected his request a total of eight times! The rest is history after they’ve met. In 1973 they got married and they currently have one child.
Kirk Douglas and Anne Buydens
Award-winning actor, Kirk Douglas, who’s spawned a generation of actors, has been with his wife ’till the very end — more than six decades, to be exact. Douglas’s first starring role was in the epic film Spartacus, and it’s been uphill ever since. It’s been reported that the dashing Douglas tried to woo Buydens only to be rejected despite his steely blue eyes. He was, to a huge degree, flummoxed by the rejection.
She was a publicist working in Paris when Douglas’s friend introduced them, and Douglas assumed — maybe rightfully so — that nobody could resist his charms. Well, it turns out she was able to. Douglas later shared that he was able to win Buydens over by listening instead of talking — who would’ve thunk. The two eventually got married in 1954 and soon had two boys, Peter and Eric. Today, they remain the template for how love ought to turn out in Hollywood.
Samuel L. Jackson And Latanya Richardson – 40 Years
Samuel L. Jackson is one of the most popular actors in the industry. He has been in over a hundred films, many of which have been a hit. Furthermore, he is almost always cast in the biggest movie franchises, such as in Star Wars and the MCU. Jackson has been with his wife, Latanya Richardson, for almost four decades but his love for her is still evident. Recently though, they made a virtual appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
Here, the actor jokingly said that he doesn’t remember proposing to his wife. He said that all he remembers is that she had wedding invitations ready. Richardson went to “fill him in” with what he can’t seem to remember. She concluded the story by saying “…and he did [propose],” to which the actor acted surprised, saying “I did?” He can insist that he doesn’t remember proposing but with the way he looks at her? No lawyer is needed to prove that he is still very much in love with her.
Michael J. Fox And Tracy Pollan – 32 Years
Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan first met on the set of Family Ties. Fox takes credit for the role of Alex P. Keaton while Pollan played the role of Ellen Reed. For some time, their characters were romantically involved. Despite that, the two didn’t immediately start dating as they were involved with different people at the time. However, the two met again a few years later and this time they were both single.
In an interview, the actor subtly admitted that he was thrilled to hear that Pollan was no longer in a relationship at the time. He didn’t waste time and immediately seized his chance. They dated for seven months before he popped the question. They got married in 1988 and currently, they have four children. Despite being married for more than three decades, the two are still very much in love. Fox has even said that the recent book he published is a love letter to his wife.
Bono And Alison Hewson – 38 Years
Bono and Alison Hewson are one of the longest-standing couples in Hollywood. Notably, they are also one of the sweetest and funniest duos. They got married in the year 1982. Once in a red carpet interview, Bono was asked what has kept them close. He joked that it was the red carpet saying that whenever things are going haywire, they always hit the red carpet for the solution. On a more serious note though, Alison has said that their marriage has worked because they like each other.
They both respect each other’s passion and they allow each other to pursue their own goals. It was about respect and support. It played hand in hand. This showed when Alison decided to pursue a different career path than what she first wanted. She went on and earned a degree in politics and sociology. She chose something that didn’t downplay her desire to make a difference to people, but still allowed her to support Bono.
Colin Firth And Livia Giuggioli
Right off the bat, we have to say that this couple had already split. Despite the sad turn of events, however, they still deserve a wee bit of credit for having lasted so long. Indeed, they were married for 22 years before they split — which is bona fide miracle for Hollywood’s standards. The two met in 1997, on the set of as TV show. They later started dating — basically, the whole shebang — and eventually moved to Italy to start a family.
Their countryside lifestyle turned topsy turvy when Giuggioli did things with an Italian journalist that… well, we’ll just leave to your imagination for now. So now the couple is separated, and, yeah, we’re scratching our heads about the whole thing too. In any case, at least they were able to last 22 years, which is more than what one can expect from a celebrity relationship these days.
Kevin Kline And Phoebe Cates – 31 Years
The actor has been in the industry for more than four decades. In this time he has accumulated lots of roles and recognitions to his credit. Other than being one of the most prominent names in the world of Hollywood, Kevin Klein is also a big romantic. It was said that Klein hired Phobe Cates’ former assistant to get him a date with the young actress! She was literally a ray of sunshine for the actor.
At first, he thought that she was just too happy and enthusiastic about life. He didn’t know how they would actually converse. Turns out he had nothing to be worried about though. Photos of the two surfacing today’s are enough to show how much fun they are having with each other. They were and still are perfect for each other. In 1989 they got married and they currently have two children.
Adriano Celentano and Claudia Mori
Adriano Celentano and Claudia Mori is another love story that happened on the set of a film. Celentano is a very talented musician and actor who sold over millions of records. He’s also a prominent figure in the Italian music scene and was also playful with the ladies. Mori, however, took acting seriously and has always done her best for each role she was in. They met in 1963, at the set of Uno Strano Tipo, which led to their dating. After years of courtship, they finally got engaged.
They have been through thick and thin and have been victims of backlash and pressure from the media. Instead of succumbing to the controversies, they won all of them together thanks to reliable attorneys, and have been at each other’s side since. They are now retired and are spending their twilight years together in a secluded place in Milan where they can have fun with their grandchildren.
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor’s chemistry go beyond television. Their 17-year marriage started from TV shows and ongoing projects together, which ultimately led them to date. Their love on screen was no joke since it represented how truly in love they were. They dated in 1999 and finalized marriage a year after. The couple has broken up and separated in 2017, but their actions seem to contradict their words.
The two practically seem to be still bound together as they’ve been seen lurking around restaurants together — they seem to be still comfortable with each other’s presence. They also accompany each other during red carpets events and other occasions. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves because we haven’t heard anything from their lawyers after the announcement. It’s certainly nice to see them so close and civil with just the right amount of affection and care.
James Belushi and Jennifer Sloan
James Belushi is a known comedian and personality who hosts TV shows. His union with his wife, Jennifer Sloan, proves that love doesn’t always hit the first time around, and that it is a slow and bumpy process that takes time, patience, and determination. They wed in 1998 and have two lovely children together. Things sadly went downhill in 2018 when Sloan’s attorney helped her file for separation in court, but Belushi was stubborn and countered with a petition for dismissal — luckily the court favored his side.
After the debacle, their relationship went private. They’ve surely reconciled, and the motives for Belushi’s actions are yet to be broadcasted. It’s certainly a personal matter, but it’s certainly believable that it was his love and devotion to his partner that pushed him to reject the divorce. This will certainly give others hope that relationships can be fought for and that people should not just give up easily.
John Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt
John Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt are truly a one-of-kind couple who’ll surely make you feel jealous. The two lovebirds have been together for 18 years and are still going strong to this day. They seem like the perfect match for each other — like peanut butter and jam, yin and yang, or the aroma of coffee and the rain outside. They started dating in 1997 and later ended up together in the rom-com Kissing Jessica Stein. They never really announced marriage but have a lovely child together, raising it with all their love and care.
They established a production company in 2009 through their shared investments. There was a ton of anticipation to see a ring on Mori’s finger but the news in 2015 said otherwise when the two split. Hamm stated that it was very difficult since they have been together for almost two decades. They got closure, though, expressing gratitude to each other as they split.
Ina and Jeffrey Garten
Ina and Jeffrey are certainly a couple to look up to — and they show that patience can really go a long way. Both Ina and Garten have seen success in their love lives and careers, and it wouldn’t have been possible without each other. The couple met when Ina was 15 and Jeffrey was 17. Jeffrey was set on making Ina his girlfriend but she was also stubborn. She constantly rejected him, and it was not until they finished college when she finally accepted him. Ina is now a TV chef personality and is a host of her own cooking show. Garten, on the other hand, has multiple degrees to his name and is a known figure in finance management.
They had to be apart due to their careers but instead of it becoming the root of their downfall, it made their marriage stronger. They are both devoted to their marriage, which is certainly a feat that should be acknowledged by other couples. They are certainly a power couple due to how they made their marriage and careers work.
Tom Ford and Richard Buckley
Theirs was a relationship that withstood critics and broke boundaries in an industry full of discrimination, homophobia, and sexism. Tom Ford and Richard Buckley are one of the few couples who survived. They are the embodiment of the saying ‘Love truly wins and knows no gender,’ and are among the few who challenged society and lived life accordingly. Ford met Buckley when he was just starting in the fashion industry — it was a budding romance between designer and journalist. They stood firm with each other and tackled hardships together as an openly gay couple.
They started dating in 1986 and continue to be together to this day. They are absolutely loyal to each other and are able to disregard the foul mouth of the media. In 2014, they got officially married and the two continue to live happily. They were glad to be one of the first celebrities to get married after gay marriage was legalized, and they are happy to see society become more accepting of these types of relationships. They welcomed their first son in 2012 and their son will certainly live a good life thanks to their many great investments.
RuPaul and Georges LeBar
RuPaul Charles is known to be one of the most famous drag queens in the world. His hit reality TV show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, started in 2008 and has constantly received worldwide support from fans. However, a lot of people are not familiar with the host’s husband, Georges LeBar. In contrast to RuPaul’s very flashy lifestyle, Georges prefers to be out of the camera’s sight in his 60,000-acre ranch in Wyoming.
He keeps himself busy with all the things he needs to do in his land, and at the same time, has found a passion for the arts. He even painted his husband, RuPaul, gorgeously. The two met at a Chelsea nightclub. RuPaul fell in love with Georges when he saw him dance like a maniac across the room. It may be funny, but that’s how their relationship started. Credits to the dancing.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Emily and John are now in their 10th year of marriage. They both are well-known actors but have only starred in one film together—A Quiet Place. They first met in November of 2008 through a mutual friend. According to the actress, it was love at first sight. From there, they went on a supposed-to-be-weird date but it actually went pretty well. Credit that for the start of their relationship. Roughly a year later, in 2009, John casually proposed to Emily, and a “Yes!” made everyone cry.
In 2010, they tied the knot on Lake Como. They then had their two adorable daughters, Violet and Hazel Grace. In the industry, the two are known to be a funny but adorable couple. Emily’s speech during her 2015 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards got briefly interrupted by her very excited husband who got up from backstage. Because of his constant support, Emily was able to say that John changed her life.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Ryan and Eva started dating while they were doing the movie The Place Beyond The Pines together. After that, they were spotted in Disneyland being publicly affectionate with each other. Since then, they’ve become very private about their relationship. In interviews, Eva would always make sure to be tight-lipped when asked about their relationship. However, she addressed the pregnancy rumors in February of 2014. Months later, in September, Eva gave birth to their first daughter, Esmeralda Amada.
Later in 2016, they had another daughter, Amada Lee. To some degree, it might sound weird to have both your daughters named Amada but Eva assured her husband that it was a popular name in Latin fashion. During the 2017 Golden Globes, Ryan won Best Actor for his performance in the musical La La Land. Eva wasn’t there to be with him but he dedicated the award to his wonderful wife.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
These two are considered a power couple in Hollywood. Blake and Ryan first met on the set of the film Green Lantern in 2010. At that time, Blake was still in a relationship with actor Penn Badgley. Ryan was also still married to actress Scarlett Johansson. In September of that year, Blake and Penn broke up. In December of the same year, Ryan and Scarlett also divorced after two years of marriage. It took them long enough to meet each other again and date since Blake reportedly got into a relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
However, in October of 2011, they were, to some degree, confirmed to be dating. Sources said that they were “very much a couple” and are “really happy together.” Roughly a year later, they had a surprise wedding in Boone Hall Plantation with their loved ones. It was a private and intimate moment but they gladly gave off bits of information to the media. Ever since then, the two are happily married and currently have three kids together.
Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett
Ryan O’ Neal and Farrah Fawcett have been together for two decades now yet the lovebirds are still going strong, what’s their secret? Popularly known as a boxer-turned-actor, American actor Charles Patrick Ryan O’ Neal has continually been falling in love with four-time Emmy Award nominee Farrah Leni Fawcett. The two lovers undeniably have one special romance between them since they seemingly have the same electricity running through their veins. It was like a romance out of a fairytale where you have a dazzling princess being escorted into a lifetime worth of love and happiness by a sweet prince who is also an equally talented actor.
Ever since they met, both Ryan and Farrah immediately knew that they were soulmates. This blossoming relationship eventually bore a child as a testament to their love. However, despite not being married, Ryan stuck through to his vows of “’til death do us part,” sticking by Farrah’s side until the end.
Carrie Fisher and Paul Simon
A love that can withstand any test in life is surely what everyone hopes to have. Carrie Fisher and Paul Simon’s type of love is a testament to that saying. Multiple site sources state that Fisher and Simon have been together for 6 years, but this isn’t counting the years they spent outside marriage. The amazing love story of these lovebirds is unique because, despite their numerous ups and downs, they seemingly found their way back into love.
For 12 long years, the pair have been on a rollercoaster ride when it came to their official status, but it’s these problems that can take credit for making their relationship what it is. The dynamic duo actually met when Fisher was still starting her career as an actress back in 1977. After reuniting the following year, the two immediately hit it off and started living together, and from then, they lived their very own version of a happily ever after.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
Although they never married because of the love they had for their careers, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman’s relationship is the perfect example of true love. First locking eyes in 1971 on the set of the film Shrinking Bride, DeVito and Perlman unknowingly sparked a fiery romance with each other. As if they’ve had already met before, the two were instant soulmates from the get-go, and soon enough, they started living with each other a few years later.
From their on-screen dynamic in Taxi to their romantic and friendly relationship off-camera, anyone who’s followed them can easily tell that these two are perfect for each other. What’s even more heartwarming was DeVito’s remark when asked what he can say about Perlman. He replied that he can never find another woman like her. It was the most adorable thing to say — and he deserves credit for having said it.
Sean Penn and Madonna
When you combine equally talented American singer Madonna and American actor Sean Penn, you’re sure to get one amazing and dynamic duo. Born as Sean Justin Penn, the two-time Academy Award winner is best known for his amazing investments in the film industry. Of course, someone of his caliber can only be matched by an individual who shares the same passion for her career. Madonna Louise Ciccone is the perfect match for someone like Penn since she’s so famous in her craft that she’s been dubbed the “Queen of Pop”.
Combining these two insanely famous celebrities will give you one of the hottest, richest, and well-accomplished lovers of all time. Penn’s admiration for his wife, Madonna, is one of the sweetest things in Hollywood since Penn stated that Madonna’s something incomparable. Penn and Madonna are truly something else when it comes to love.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver
On a quiet day in 1977, Arnold Schwarzenegger laid his eyes for the first time on Maria Shriver, his future wife, and true love. The former Governor of California and bodybuilding icon, Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, is famous for his amazing legacy filled with greatness, from bodybuilding to acting. Arnold’s notable achievements in life, aside from setting a standard in bodybuilding, is the Terminator franchise.
However, no matter how big his successes are, nothing comes close to his biggest achievement in life, marrying the love of his life, Maria Shriver. Maria’s known for her contributions and investments in the field of journalism. Like how their story goes, after meeting each other at a party, the two undeniably had a connection with each other from the start. After a long courting period of 10 years, the two eventually tied the knot in 1986 and since then parented four children proving their great love for one another.
