Hollywood romances are usually tagged as a spur of the moment relationships as most celebrities don’t usually end up together for so long. Some marriages would only last for a year or two, while in some cases it only lasts for months. Although this stigma is present among Hollywood couples, there are those who defied the odds. Read on to see the Hollywood couple who managed to have their love game strong.
JEFF BRIDGES AND SUSAN GESTON
Known from a bloodline of great artists, Jeff Bridges also worked his way up to earn a name in the Hall of Fame. Both his parents are prominent names in the industry, namely, Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges. Jeff managed to meet his wife at the early age of 28. The couple met in one of their shooting locations and fell in love. Although the couple had a rough patch as Jeff was not ready to settle yet, Dorothy gave him an ultimatum, which prompted him to tie the knot.
His marriage to Susan Geston bore fruit to three beautiful and wonderful daughters Isabelle Annie, Jessica Lily, and Haley Roselouise, who all became women of their own. However, Jessica might probably make occasional headlines for her excellent songwriting skills. We guess the Bridges line of Hollywood big names might still live on, after all.
GOLDIE HAWN AND KURT RUSSELL
Thirty-seven years of being together yet Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are very much happy with each other’s company. Considered as one of the most iconic duos in Hollywood, there won’t be a chance for this couple to hire a lawyer because they were never married in the first place. Despite the fact that they aren’t wed, they managed to keep their romance burning. Hawn and Russell do not believe marriage, as they’d point out that it’s just a piece of paper.
However, if you’re interested in the couple’s background, here’s a brief rundown. The couple first met on Valentine’s Day 1983 but did not start dating until 1986. Together, they raised one son, and Kurt also acted as a father to Goldie’s first daughter, Kate.
CATHERINE ZETA-JONES AND MICHAEL DOUGLAS
Their age gap didn’t really cause that much fuzz in terms of making their relationship work. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas remain in-love despite the 25-year age gap. The couple even has a pre-arranged agreement where Douglas would have to pay Zeta-Jones a sum of $5 million a year if ever he’d cheat on her. Seeing where they are now, it seems like that sum can go to other investments as he does not have any plans to look the other way.
Apart from being one of the longest surviving couples in Hollywood, Zeta-Jones and Douglas’ union is also one of the wealthiest.Together, they have an impressive investment portfolio in the industry. Their shared properties are littered not only in the United States but also across the globe. Their Westchester County home alone is worth $11.3 million. That’s just one property!
STEVE CARELL AND NANCY WALLS
Writer-actress Nancy Carell is known for the films The 40-Year-Old-Virgin and Bridesmaids, and her marriage to comedian Steve Carell. The couple is keeping their relationship strong since they’ve tied the knot in 1995. At some point, Steve was Nancy’s teacher, where she was actually intimidated by him. They eventually started dating and things went well for both of them. They’ve been together for 25 years together and have two kids, namely John and Elisabeth Anne Carell.
The couple has clearly enjoyed a long and lasting marriage. However, the road to their 25-year long union was not without its challenges. In true Hollywood fashion, speculations about the real status of their relationship floated here and there over the course of two decades. However, both Steve and Nancy were able to prove them all wrong.
MARK CONSUELOS AND KELLY RIPA
Twenty-four years strong and they are still keeping the fire burning. Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa’s love story initially started when they worked together in All My Children. They played the roles of Hayley and Mateo. Their on-screen romance eventually transitioned to a real-life love story. The couple got hitched in Las Vagas where they lived a happy married life. Ripa still has a solid following as she hosts for Live with Kelly and Brian. Consuelo, on the other hand, is part of a hit series Riverdale.
Aside from growing their shared investments, the couple has also grown their family. Mark and Kelly became first-time parents in 1997 when they welcomed their eldest son Michael Joseph, then their daughter Lola followed in 2001, and Joaquin Antonio in 2003. Since becoming mom and dad to their three children, Kelly and Mark have decided to keep much of their personal lives private.
TIM MCGRAW AND FAITH HILL
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are still going strong. Not only are they tagged as great stage performers, but also amazing country singers. The award-winning couple, however, made it to the headlines that their marriage is going down the drain. The news was then debunked as they still managed to have a statement though their reps that they won’t be hiring an attorney to take care of separation papers.
It is no secret that the iconic couple has one of the longest marriages in the entertainment industry to this day– 24 years to be exact. Both surely won’t need any lawyer to settle difficult matters between them as they recently released never-before-seen photos for their anniversary on their Instagram. Their 24-year relationship, along with a combined net worth of $170 million, also produced many award-winning songs, a collaborative album, and of course, three kids.
VIOLA DAVIS AND JULIUS TENNON
Known as the first black actress to bag the Triple Crown of Acting. Viola Davis managed to make it to the Hollywood spotlight. She managed to win an Academy Award, two Tony Awards, and an Emmy Award. She managed to earn a name in Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the world in 2012 and 2017. She earned the following for her movies, such as The Help and Widows. A strong woman as she is, she fell in love with her co-star, Julius Tennon, and they tied the knot in 2003.
In the widely followed series, Viola Davis played the role of a defense attorney, while Tennon was only a supporting character. However, Justin Tennon has had his share of acting flicks and performances, appearing in Friday Night Lights, Faster, and Won’t Back Down.
BEYONCÉ AND JAY Z
Queen B and Jay-Z got their love game strong. The celebrity couple has been married since 2008, and they managed to patch up their rocky relationship. There was a time when Jay-z reportedly cheated on Beyoncé, yet they chose to stay together and focus on their family life. Despite the drama that went on in their relationship, they stayed together with three of their kids. The couple has three kids, Blue Ivy and their twins Rumi and Sir Carter.
Pop culture refers to this power couple as “Jay and Bey,” and Jay-Z’s hit single Bonnie and Clyde can serve as an accurate depiction of their relationship. The artists have their own share of hit singles, albums, and successful tours. Recently, Jay-Z just upped his net worth to $1 billion, making the Carter household’s savings more massive. However, this $1 billion net worth didn’t solely come from album sales.
ANNA KOURNIKOVA AND ENRIQUE IGLESIAS
The ’90s kids are well aware of who Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias are. The power started dating in 2001. Although they don’t have plans of tying the knot, they have three kids, they had twins in 2017, and their youngest was born last February 2020. Despite the difference in their fields, the couple managed to have a balanced relationship. Iglesias is best known for his Latin Pop music, while Kournikova, on the other hand, dominated the world of tennis.
Who couldn’t possibly remember the hit song Hero from Enrique Iglesias back in the early 2000s? However, Hero wasn’t the song that brought the singing sensation and the tennis star together. It was on the set of the music video for Enrique’s song Escape, wherein the two met and eventually fell for each other. Since then, Anna and Enrique have kept their relationship to a certain degree of privacy.
HARRISON FORD AND CALISTA FLOCKHART
Harrison Ford and his wife Calista Flockhart worked their marriage through. The couple started dating in 2002, where they eventually tied the knot in 2010. Ford went through two failed marriages, which were sorted out by his lawyers. Earning a big name through his movies such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones, his career kept pushing forward. Although his cashflow is intact, he went through failed relationships.
In the Golden Globe Awards on January 20, 2002, cupid’s arrows started shooting for Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart. Since that eventful red carpet event, they went from one date to forever when the Star Wars actor proposed marriage to the Ally McBeal star over their Valentine’s weekend in 2009. They got married in June 2010 at Sta. Fe, Mexico, where the production set of Cowboys & Aliens was to be filmed.
SACHA BARON COHEN AND ISLA FISHER
Sometimes, when we meet someone, we feel as though we are too different that we will never get along. However, as you form a stronger bond with one another, you will soon feel like there is actually a way to make things work. Actor Sacha Baron Cohen and actress Isla Fisher certainly found a way to know each other better and get along despite their differences in cultural background, life preferences, and even genres they work within the film industry.
Known for his role in Borat, Cohen managed to gather a solid fan base. He is well known for his mustache and multi-colored hats. He is a master at making people laugh, too. Aside from his quirky persona, he also managed to marry the beautiful Fisher. The couple tied the knot in 2010 but met in Sydney in 2002. Fisher eventually converted to Judaism as their relationship progressed.
EILEEN DAVIDSON AND VINCENT VAN PATTEN
Sometimes, life gives us a shot at what we think might be forever. However, we end up losing it. Not everyone who comes into our life will stay, but everyone we meet should always be treated as a blessing because they come in and out for a reason. Vincent Van Patten had his first shot at love when he married Betsy Russell. They gave love a shot, but they were not able to pull it off. With the help of attorneys, they were able to finalize their separation.
They met on the set of The Young and The Restless. Along with the show’s success is their love life. They eventually tied the knot in 2003. The couple shared a son, Jesse Thomas Van Patten. Their family life is something a lot of people envy. A beautiful couple and a charming child living the rich and famous life is not something a lot of people can achieve.
ELLEN DEGENERES AND PORTIA DE ROSSI
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi are two iconic names in the LGBT community. The couple made it big when they announced their marriage in 2008. But the couple has been in a relationship long before getting hitched. As of this date, they have known each other for two decades. DeGeneres, who is a talk show host, managed to gather a huge following. They faced several divorce rumors and issues about their relationship.
Her talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show is her biggest investment since 2003. Before her big TV show, she was also a star on Ellen, which ran from 1994 to 1998, and The Ellen Show, which was on TV from 2001 to 2002. Being highly prolific in her career, you wouldn’t think she’d have time for love. On the other hand, De Rossi was born in 1973 on the same birth month as DeGeneres.
KEVIN BACON AND KYRA SEDGWICK
Talk about true love, Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick has been married for over 31 years. The couple is still going strong, and it seems that they are stronger than ever. The Hollywood couple first met and got to know each other during the production of one of their films. The 1988 TV Movie Lemon Sky allowed them to cross paths. They eventually tied the knot in the same year, and as their relationship flourishes, so did their career.
Born on July 8, 1958, Bacon has been spotted in many Hollywood films like A Few Good Men, Footloose, Sleepers, Balto, JFK, Apollo 13, and many more. Other than his obviously impressive resume, The Guardian even said that he was one of the best actors ever to have never received a nomination from the Academy. In 2003, he got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is an understated achievement.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND JESSICA BIEL
Having been through tough times in terms of previous relationships, Justin Timberlake managed to find his way back into love. He was linked to big names in Hollywood, such as Britney Spears and Cameron Diaz. However, after having been through a rocky past, he finally settled with the actress, Jessica Biel.

He actually started early in Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club when he was just a kid. Eventually, he rose to fame when he joined the iconic boy band NSYNC. Soon, he went on a solo career and, in the process, received not just one but two Grammy Awards for his album Justified in 2002.
ELIZABETH BANKS AND MAX HANDELMAN
Some love stories start with a big romantic gesture and a lot of audiences, but did you know that intimate and quiet relationships also occur in Hollywood? Not all couples love the limelight and being constantly followed around by the paparazzi. These two certainly like the idea of letting their love grow in private. Waiting for years before officially tying the knot, Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman is one of the celebrity couples who worked hard for their marriage.
Tying the knot in 2003, the couple has been married for over 16 years. The couple started their romance in college, and they’ve been together since. Though they have a low-key relationship compared to their peers, they haven’t been through divorce lawsuits as they stepped away from the public eye. Surely, they know that when not a lot of people get involved in something as personal as marriage, it tends to last longer and become so much stronger.
TOM HANKS AND RITA WILSON
Decades of being together is no match for any trial that life may throw at you. When you have someone who is beside you at all times and who will never give up on you, you tend to become a stronger person. This is what happened to this pair that has caught our attention for the right reasons. Going strong through the years, celebrity couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are looked up as an iconic duo. The couple recently went through tough times as they were both struck by the pandemic Covid-19.
Known for his role in Forrest Gump, Cast Away, and The Green Mile, Hanks definitely stocked up on savings.

If our Hollywood idols can surpass anything, then so can we.
SAMUEL L. JACKSON AND LATANYA RICHARDSON
Being together for almost 40 years, LaTanya Richardson and Samuel L Jackson are still going strong. They might have been with each other for a long period of time already; they’d still gush about each other on social media. Both have starred in hitmaker films, which makes their net worth gradually increase over the years. They’ve been invested and supportive in each other’s careers, making them flourish in their own fields.
Jackson is known for his memorable appearances in several blockbuster films. It is for this reason that he is arguably one of the most popular actors of his time. On top of this, he also has amassed a huge net worth from his time in the film industry. His films alone have already grossed up to $27 billion in the entire world. Some of the movie titles he was in are Juice, Goodfellas, Coming to America, True Romance, Jurassic Park, Fresh, and of course, the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
KATY PERRY AND ORLANDO BLOOM
The big celebrities Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom were first spotted together in 2016.

Her first album was called Katy Hudson, but it did not receive the feedback that she wanted. However, when she moved to Los Angeles, her luck changed, and she became a successful musician. She also became a judge in American Idol in 2018. She has come a long way since her teenage years.
JUDY CHICAGO AND DONALD WOODMAN
Falling in and out of love is not always a smooth ride. Oftentimes, you get hurt and so discouraged that we swear to never love again. After two misfortunes in her past marriages, the world-renowned feminist artist Judy Chicago, however, took a chance on love once again and married her third husband, famous photographer Donald Woodman. Both sharing a passion for visual and multimedia arts, the artist and the photographer grew their love together in collaborating in ingenious and passionate pieces as they journey through life together.
They got married in 1985, and are currently based in New Mexico, United States. With all the powerful masterpieces that Chicago has in her portfolio, and with Woodman’s beautiful pictures as well, the two may have a fortune and a lot of investments to their name.When you both share the same passions, love is surely going to grow with it. You can express yourselves in the same way, and you can appreciate each other’s efforts and progress as well.
TED DANSON AND MARY STEENBURGEN
Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen tied the knot back on October 7, 1995. The pair have managed to stay strong since then. To keep themselves busy, these two have remained active in show business. Danson gained most of his investments thanks to his stellar performance in The Good Place. The loved up pair is arguably one of the most adorable couple goals in Tinseltown. Their romance started when they worked on the 1994 adventure film Pontiac Moon together.
Even spending more than two decades together, the two remain devoted to each other. It’s still the little things that make Danson swoon over his wife. He shares how much he adores her laugh and smiles. Steenburgen, on the other hand, cherishes her husband’s great sense of humor. Now, the two are celebrating 25 years of their marriage but they still look like they’re head over heels in love with each other. They’ve had their fair share of failed marriages, which may be one of the reasons why they knew how to work things out.
LISA KUDROW AND MICHEL STERN
Lisa Kudrow, who is known as Phoebe Buffay in the iconic television sitcom Friends and Michel Stern, has been together since 1995. The couple has experienced marriage struggles, yet they managed to work things out without needing a lawyer. Like most couples, instead of letting the lapses go out of hand, they’d rather sit and talk it out. The two are affiliated in different fields in terms of their career path. While Kudrow is more focused on acting, Stern leans towards advertising.
Lisa Kudrow rose to superstardom when she was given the iconic role on the hit TV sitcom Friends. She has been by Stern’s side despite the ups and downs of life. The two met in a charming yet unconventional manner—sort of like what her character Phoebe would end up doing. Stern was still dating Kudrow’s roommate when the pair first laid eyes on each other. Kudrow was instantly smitten with Stern’s charm and had to hide her apparent crush on him for a little while.
JULIA ROBERTS AND DANIEL MODER
Julia Roberts is given credit for being one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood since she is also hailed as America’s Sweetheart. She appeared in classic movies such as the international hit Eat, Pray, Love, Pretty Woman, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Monalisa Smile. With her charisma and iconic smile, it’s easy to fall in love with a star like Julia. It also seems like Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder’s bond is a match made in cinematic heaven.
Back in 1995, Daniel worked as a production assistant. He gradually rose through the ranks of cinematographer. Daniel also has some pretty high-profile gigs and investments under his belt with movies like Spider-Man 3 and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Despite being America’s Sweetheart, we all know Roberts had her fair share of crumbling relationships in the past. With her lawyers’ help, she worked her way out of her marriage to singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. On a lighter note, she met her Moder, which gave her another shot at love. And this time, it lasted.
MATT DAMON AND LUCIANA BARROSO
The 90’s kids were heartbroken after it was announced that Matt Damon tied the knot. He and his partner Luciana Barroso got married in 2005. After more than 15 years, the duo is still going strong. Barroso, who worked as a waitress in Miami, managed to adapt to the limelight. Damon and his wife have three kids, Isabella, Gia Zavala, and Stella. The couple remains low-key in terms of their lifestyle, which probably means that money management is something that they both consider.
The actor and the Argentinian beauty aren’t the typical Tinseltown couple you might come across. Despite their fame and fortune, they’ve maintained a pretty normal life. Barroso is rarely the type who would appear in interviews. Damon’s wife isn’t too keen on some social media action too since she doesn’t have any accounts online. The couple has never experienced being the center of attention by the press either.
JAMIE LEE CURTIS AND CHRISTOPHER GUEST
One of the most iconic characters from Freaky Friday, Jamie Lee Curtis, is one of those cool moms you’d get to see on screen. Despite the noise when it comes to Hollywood love affairs, however, she definitely knows how to silence them. She and her long-time husband, Christopher Guest, managed to prove that Hollywood fairy-tale relationships do exist. It was mentioned that it only took Guest’s one Rolling Stone photo for Curtis to fall in love with him.
With stable income from both parents, their two kids will probably never have problems with student loans.To give you a clearer picture, Jamie Lee Curtis instantly fell head over heels for This is Spinal Tap’s star. The actress was lounging in her living room one fine day in the ’80s, along with her friend, Debra Hill, who later ended up becoming the producer and co-writer for Halloween, a role that cemented Curtis into scream queen royalty.
VICTORIA AND DAVID BECKHAM
Definitely one of Hollywood’s biggest couple, Victoria and David Beckham are still going strong even after two decades. With equally balanced careers, the duo is always in the spotlight. May it be in the world of sports, fashion, or music. Known as Posh Spice from the iconic ’90s girl group, the Spice Girls, Victoria managed to balance her work-life with poise and elegance. When she decided to shift her focus, Victoria threw in investments in the fashion industry. Her husband, a former football player, on the other hand, is still doing well in sports.
A Spice Girl falling in love with a superstar athlete might seem like a plot to a really bizarre ad swanky movie, but it is the reality David and Victoria Beckham are living in. They are considered one of the most iconic pairs in the world of sports, fashion, and pop culture. The lovely couple started coupling up back in 1997. Since then, they have received nothing but support from fans, friends, and family.
JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS AND BRAD HALL
More than three decades of being together, Saturday Night Live stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Hall are still going strong. They both met and got to know each other in college, and they eventually got married in 1987. Both are quite busy in their career in the entertainment industry. Though most of their time is spent on shoots and tapings, they’d still manage to keep the fire burning. They kept their priorities straight, as they kept their family on top of the list.
The Emmy award-winning actress and her husband share two sons together named Henry and Charlie. Being the doting husband that he is, Brad was there to support Julia when she was battling breast cancer back in 2017. Fortunately, the actress was able to beat the sickness and continued her career as an entertainer. Julia broke records when she won the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series six times in a row for exactly the same role.

Though living a rockstar life, he managed to stay loyal to his long-time wife, Patti Hansen. Celebrating more than 37 years of their union, the couple always manages to dodge divorce rumors, as they stayed stone.
It’s no wonder why Patti became so smitten with Keith! He is a multi-talented entertainer, after all. Dabbling into the world of acting, Richards also made an appearance in a couple of Pirates of the Caribbean installments. He was known to many as Captain Teague, the father of the lead character Captain Jack Sparrow. Richards and Hansen share two daughters together named Theodora Dupree and Alexandra Nicole. Richards even became a publisher for a children’s book with his daughter, Theodora.
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS AND DAVID BURTKA
Talking about defying the odds, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are still going strong. Although they’ve only been married for more than five years, the duo has been together for 14 years prior to tying the knot. Neil Patrick Harris, who is best known for his role as Barnabas “Barney” Stinson on the iconic TV series, How I Met Your Mother, served as an inspiration amongst the LGBT community.

As an actor, however, Darren was able to star and earn acting roles from the 2010 comedy film Date Night, Lullaby, and Trouble with the Curve. Unlike his wife, though, Darren found more comfort in creating visual and musical outputs. His Instagram bio is even captioned “I make stuff” to emphasize his artistic pursuit.

The couple first met while shooting for I Know What You Did Last Summer, which became a hit in the ’90s. The couple has two kids Charlotte Grace and Rocky James Prinze. With the projects that they’ve worked with, they definitely must have had solid investments.
Taking their obvious chemistry out of the picture, Sarah and Freddie admitted that falling in love with each other took more time than people thought. This explains why the pair spent three years being friends before even entertaining the thought of dating each other. According to Freddie, staying friends with his wife before taking it to the next level helped him get to know Sarah a bit more.

Talking about love to last, Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner are still going strong. Both icons are prominent names in Hollywood as they managed to make a name in each of their fields. Tomlin is known for being a good comedian, actress, singer, writer, and producer all in one. While Wagner on the other hand, is a producer, director, and writer as well. The couple stayed together for 42 years before they tied the knot in 2013.
Although their colleagues in the industry knew about their sexual orientations and relationship, Lily said that telling the public about it was a completely different story. It was not until much later in their romance that Lily and Jane publicly showed the status of their relationship. As we all know, in recent years, people have grown more accepting of LGBTQ+ pairings. The two might have encountered countless struggles throughout their 49-year run, but this also led them down the advocacy route. Along with expanding their businesses, Lily and Jane have also been growing their involvement with groups dedicated to women’s and LGBTQ+ rights.

They first started their romance in 1993 and then got married in 2014 after same-sex marriage was legalized.

Bruce’s three daughters, Scout, Rumer, and Tallulah were also in attendance. The loved-up couple welcomed their daughter, Mabel, in 2012. Two years after that, they welcomed their second daughter, Evelyn.
The proud mom of two documents her adorable family on social media for the whole world to see. The pair made some serious emotional investments for each other and renewed their vows in 2019. Emma praised her husband for being so funny and smart. What’s even more impressive is that his ex-wife, Demi Moore, is also close with Heming. They even refer to each other as sisters!
Bette Davis and Gary Merrill
Bette Davis is given credit for being the first individual to bag ten Academy Award nods. For her captivating performance, she won Best Actress twice. She is also the first actress to be awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute. Her influence in Hollywood is so powerful, she became the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ first female president. Bette Davis has cemented her status as a true old Hollywood icon.
Actor and director Gary Merrill met Bette when he directed her in the film Jezebel. He was also Bette’s co-star in All About Eve. Bette recounted that Gary was truly the man of her dreams and that he was the man she has always dreamed about. Passion and romance began to ensue and the two finally tied the knot. The two split in 1960 and while there were many speculations, the reason has never been explicitly revealed.
Kim Novak and Robert Malloy
Kim Novak started her career in film after joining Columbia Pictures. She starred in a number of films which include Picnic, Pal Joey, and The Man with the Golden Arm. She is mostly given credit for her iconic appearance in Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Vertigo. Her performances were well-received at the box office. In the 80s, Novak also starred in prime time TV series Falcon Rest. The actors then decided to say goodbye to acting. She left a legacy in the world of film and her work has been recognized by the Golden Globe Awards.
Novak also has her own star displayed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The actress married an equine veterinarian by the name of Robert Malloy. The pair met when Malloy was treating her pets. This beautiful couple enjoyed 45 beautiful years together, until Malloy’s passing in 2020.
Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton
Actress Cate Blanchett met her playwright husband Andrew Upton on the set of a TV show together. The pair’s love story didn’t exactly start out smoothly. Blanchett revealed that she and Upton didn’t fancy each other initially. The actress shared that when they were introduced to each other, she found him to be arrogant while Upton thought she was on the aloof side. The two really didn’t share a connection full of electricity right away since they were both seeing other people.
Eventually, during one fateful night while in a game of poker, the two shared a passionate kiss that really set the tone of their relationship. Three weeks later, the lovebirds were set to be married. On top of being a married couple while co-parenting together, the duo also works together as owners of a production company.
Katharine Hepburn and Ludlow Ogden Smith
Katharine Hepburn established her status as a Hollywood leading lady for more than six decades. She appeared in a variety of films that ranged from comedy to literary drama. She won four Academy Awards for Lead Acting Performances and was nominated multiple times. Hepburn is also given credit for her contributions to American film, being an icon in Classic Hollywood Cinema. She was first noticed after her impactful performances on Broadway.
As an actress on the rise, she was able to garner an Oscar for Best Actress for her third movie, Morning Glory. The actress married a socialite and businessman named Ludlow Ogden Smith. She met him while she was studying at Bryn Mawr. Despite her superstardom, Hepburn was also known for her privacy and for keeping away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood. Despite projecting the image of a happy couple, the two separated in 1934.
Audrey Hepburn and Andrea Dotti
Audrey Hepburn was a British actress. She is among the greatest female screen legends and is recognized by many as an icon of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Not only that, she was Givenchy’s first muse and her enduring style still influences many of today’s generation. Even during the peak of her career, Hepburn had been notorious for maintaining her privacy, especially when it came to her personal relationships. Despite her efforts, however, a few details of her romantic life have been covered by the media.
This includes her relationship with Andrea Dotti. The actress met the Italian psychiatrist while on a Mediterranean cruise with her friends. They were married in 1969 and have one son together. Sadly, despite the initial beauty of their union, there were challenges that they could not overcome. After thirteen years of being together, they separated through their lawyers in 1982.
Brigitte Bardot and Bernard d’Ormale
French screen siren Brigitte Bardot and her husband Bernard d’Ormale have been together for close to thirty years yet very little is known about the latter. d’Ormale, like his wife, values his privacy a lot and prefers to let Bardot take all of the spotlight. Not that the couple has to worry about that anymore considering the actress has since retired from the world of entertainment. At present, they are reportedly living in a gorgeous Saint-Tropez villa, far from prying eyes.
It was love at first sight for these two, according to Bardot. Unsurprisingly, they wed just months after meeting and began making investments toward a life together. The actress always praises her husband and speaks fondly of his sense of humor as well as the fact that he supports her advocacies. It certainly sounds like they’re each other’s soulmates, right?
Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco
The life of a princess is a dream for many young girls, but it isn’t always the fairytale one thinks it would be. Grace Kelly, an icon of Hollywood’s Golden Age, was able to experience this life first-hand after she went to Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. Following their marriage, she retired from her life in the spotlight and served as part of the royal family. Kelly remains beloved for all the charitable and cultural work she had done over the years, prior to her passing in 1982. Together with Rainier III, she has three children: Caroline, Albert, and Stephanie.
Did you know that it was Olivia de Havilland’s husband who got credit for arranging a meeting between the two? Like something out of a novel, they first met on Le Train Bleu taking some of cinema’s biggest names to the Cannes Festival!
Monica Belluci and Vincent Cassel
French actor Vincent Cassel and Italian actress Monica Belluci first met on the set of the film The Apartment back in 1996. The two got along well and eventually fell in love. They married in 1999 and have two daughters together, Leonie and Deva. American audiences might recognize Cassel for his roles in the films Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen. He also starred alongside Natalie Portman in the film, Black Swan. Belluci, on the other hand, is known as one of the most beautiful women in the world. She appeared in the films Tears of the Sun, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Passion of Christ.
The two stayed together for over fourteen years before announcing that they were separating in 2013. The reasons for which have never been disclosed by lawyers from either side, though reports do say they mutually agreed on it.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have one of the most enduring marriages in Hollywood, with over 12 years of being together. However, getting to this point wasn’t always easy. They first met back in 2007 and in 2008, confirmed that they are indeed a couple. The years that followed were blissful for the two and they often praised each other during separate interviews. It certainly came as no surprise that just three years after meeting, they announced their engagement.
Despite the obvious differences between them, the two managed to make it work. Shepard does admit that there was a struggle in the beginning, but all’s well that ends well. They worked through the difficulties and proved just how strong their bond is. Today, they have two kids together and are able to enjoy a mortgage-free life thanks to their hard work.
Jeri Ryan and Christophe Émé
Actress Jeri Ryan married French chef Christophe Émé in 2020 at a private ceremony in the French countryside. The actress swooned over the entire event and over her relationship with Émé, who she met back in 2003. They were introduced by a common friend during a charity event and grew fond of each other as time went on. Three years after they started dating, the chef proposed to Ryan with a mural he painted himself. They have certainly come a long way, considering Ryan initially thought that they wouldn’t go beyond a few dates!
Ryan has one son from a previous relationship, Alex, who is now 12 years old. The teen was present during the wedding, along with 120 of the couple’s family and friends. Aside from looking forward to a life spent together, they also have investments in Ortolan, a restaurant in Los Angeles, which they co-own.
Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn
Sustaining a decade-long marriage is challenging enough, but to have been married for thirteen years only to have it end anyway must be seriously heartbreaking for both parties involved. This was what Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn went through following their split in 2014. For them, the deal-breaker was the distance and the amount of time they spent apart as opposed to being together. During their marriage, Harmon and Sehorn had three children together, Finley, Avery, and Emery. The two remain friends, fortunately, and have been working towards co-parenting their kids.
At present, Harmon lives in North Carolina. She chose to raise her children far from Hollywood so they don’t get exposed to the fast-paced, and often invasive, Los Angeles lifestyle so early in life. In an interview, Harmon gives credit to the move as one of the greatest things she could have done for her family.
Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar
Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar first met through a mutual acquaintance. The timing had been right since both were close to ending their previous relationships. Since they were about the same age, the two were said to have immediately struck a friendship with each other and have stayed in touch since that day. From their friendship, a relationship bloomed as they realized how compatible they were with each other.
However, even good things come to an end. Both are private people and preferred to not speak about their relationship to the media, but Hurley had to announce their split on Twitter and not through their lawyers. This was after photos of her and her new beau surfaced. By then, the two had been separated for months but simply chose to keep it within their circle of friends. Even today, the two remain good friends.
Dolly Parton and Carl Thomas Dean
Dolly Parton has received plenty of accolades over the years, perhaps enough to fill an entire room of her mansion—twice. However, Country music’s beloved crooner also deserves praise for her long-lasting marriage with her husband Carl Thomas Dean. The two have been together for over 50 years and are still as strong as ever! In an interview, she once talked about their “secret” for sustaining their relationship and Parton certainly did not sugarcoat anything. She openly talked about their struggles and how they had to work through everything as a team.
It should also be noted that while he is married to one of music’s biggest stars, Dean has kept a low-profile throughout the years. He lets Parton take the spotlight and often cheers her on from the sidelines. They chose not to have children, but their investment planning always involves helping kids who are in need.
Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart
Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart’s story is one for the books. The degree of love they had for each other endures, even today. Bacall wrote of the short time they spent together in her memoir, saying that “No one has written a romance better than we lived it.” This was despite the fact that she wasn’t the biggest fan of the actor when they first met. She recalled thinking “Yuck!” when filmmaker Howard Hawks talked to her about starring in a film with Bogart.
With the 25-year age gap between them, perhaps her initial reaction was only natural. Bogart proved to be quite the gentleman later on and managed to change the actress’s mind about him. They eventually wed in 1945 with Bacall setting aside her career to raise a family with him. The two stayed together for 11 years until Bogart’s passing.
Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin
The two actors met while filming The Marrying Man in 1990. They were wed three years after this initial meeting. For fans of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, their union was certainly delightful. They were two of the biggest stars in Hollywood at the time, after all. The couple later had their only child, Ireland Baldwin, in 1995. From an outsider’s point of view, the addition of their daughter only made their marriage even more ideal and romantic. Considering how private they were, Baldwin and Basinger kept any issues that they were having to themselves.
This is one of the reasons why their separation in 2000 surprised fans, friends, and even their family. Fortunately for the actors, after settling matters with their attorneys, they were able to move on and find their own happy endings. At present, reports suggest that they are on good terms with each other.
Lynda Carter and Robert Altman
Lynda Carter calls their 37-year marriage an “extraordinary gift” and we can’t help but agree. After all, it is no easy feat maintaining a relationship for that length of time, especially one that is in the spotlight. In a loving tribute to her late husband who passed in 2021, Carter calls Altman the love of her life. She only hopes that everyone is able to experience the same degree of love that they shared in this lifetime. Carter recalled all the moments they spent at the airport, back when they lived thousands of miles apart and made every effort to be with each other.
The couple first met in 1982 and were wed just two years after. Together, they spearheaded numerous charitable events even while dealing with their own personal struggles. A true power couple, if you ask us.
Elisabeth Shue and Davis Guggenheim
Actress Elisabeth Shue has been wowing audiences since the 1980s. After starring as Ali in The Karate Kid, which was released in 1984, Shue became a household name. This role was followed by plenty more memorable ones, including her role as Claudia Wells in the Back to the Future sequels. She wed documentary filmmaker and producer Davis Guggenheim in 1994, while she was still at the peak of her career. At the time, Guggenheim was also receiving credit for his work on The Shield and Deadwood. However, most would remember him for his work on An Inconvenient Truth, which won him an Academy Award.
The two have been together for close to 27 years and have three children together; Stella Street, Miles William, and Agnes Charles. They have also remained in the business throughout the years, with Guggenheim producing more top-grossing documentaries and Shue working in both TV and film.
Pamela Anderson and Dan Hayhurst
As they say, there’s no such thing as a time limit when it comes to finding love. Pamela Anderson and her beau Dan Hayhurst certainly prove this to be true. The two were wed in 2020 in a backyard ceremony attended by their closest peers. According to those who witnessed the event, the 53-year-old actress was simply beaming with love. Hayhurst, as some might already know, works as a builder and is also Anderson’s bodyguard. Talk about a romance straight out of a movie, right?
The couple confirmed their relationship in September 2020, a little over seven months following the actress’s split from her previous partner. They have spent most of their time together since, with Hayhurst working on Anderson’s Vancouver Island property, from flooring to roof. The actress has two kids from a previous marriage and both seem to be very supportive of her new relationship.
Catherine Bell and Adam Beason
Our next couple met on a film set, where Catherine Bell was one of the stars and Adam Beason worked as a production assistant. Sparks flew between the two quite instantly and they married after two years of dating. They have two children together, Ronan and Gemma. The family lived in Calabasas, California, and their hard work over the years ensured that they wouldn’t require loans in order to purchase the 5,700-square-foot, Tuscan-style property they resided in.
The pair were together for 17 years before they announced their separation in 2011. A representative for the couple confirmed that they will remain friends and were working towards co-parenting their children as a unit. Their split was finalized in 2015, but no reason was disclosed as to what led to it. They have since moved on and are now happy in their new relationships.
Ali MacGraw and Steve McQueen
Actress Ali MacGraw is best known for her role as Jenny in the film Love Story, which was released back in the 1970s. For many Hollywood fans, her relationship with Steve McQueen, though short, is the stuff of legend. The two were co-stars in the film The Getaway, which was released back in 1971, and were married just two years after. In an interview, she referred to their relationship as “chemical” and that she had found him very attractive, even from the beginning. The two stayed together for five years, before parting ways in 1977.
Whenever she recalls their time together, MacGraw does so with an undeniable fondness for him still. She talked about their time in Malibu and how idyllic their simple life had been. The actress has chosen to remain single since, putting her investments toward charitable causes instead.
Will Ferrell and Viveca Paulin
Will Ferrell and Viveca Paulin have been together for over twenty years and these two are still as solid in their union as ever. They first met at an acting class back in 1995 and dated not too long after. However, things got a little cold between them and the pair decided to just stay as friends. She helped him pay rent and even got him a typing gig to help with his finances. Fortunately for Will, his luck changed after he got a job on Saturday Night Live.
Paulin was almost the “one that got away”, but the two eventually rekindled their relationship. After two years of dating, Ferrell proposed and in 2000 the two were wed. Now they have three children beautiful children together, who will never have to worry about student loans in the future thanks to their parents’ hard work.
Jay Leno and Mavis Leno
Former Late Night host Jay Leno is an expert on a number of things, from comedy to classic cars, but couples might want to look to him for relationship advice as well. After all, Jay and Mavis Leno have been married for over four decades and prove that relationships can last in the industry as long as it is properly cared for. What’s even more impressive is the fact that they met by chance.
Mavis was not looking for a relationship at the time and was only at The Comedy Store on business matters. However, there was an instant connection between the two. Needless to say, they have been inseparable since. 40 years later, they are still as in love as before. The secret? They give credit to their similarities, honesty, and being secure in the roles they have in their relationship.
Bill Murray and Jennifer Butler
Bill Murray has enjoyed quite the colorful career in Hollywood. He started out in the 1970s, when sketch comedy was the biggest trend, to starring in some of the industry’s most iconic movies. Surely you’ve seen his work in Lost in Translation, Groundhog Day, and Caddyshack. Outside of his work as an actor, his personal life is just as interesting—he’s even become a popular meme for it. He is known to have read poetry to construction workers and even crashed karaoke parties! Have you ever wondered about his romantic life, however?
He wed Jennifer Butler in 1997. The two met while filming Scrooged, where Butler worked as a costume designer. They have four sons together and were together for 11 years before calling on their attorneys and filing for separation. Since then, Murray has been cautious about dating again and prefers to stay single.
Ron Howard and Cheryl Howard
Ron and Cheryl Howard were married back in 1975 and despite being in the spotlight, they have managed to maintain the strength of their bond. They are parents to four incredibly talented children, some of whom have also followed their footsteps and made a name for themselves in the industry. Of course, marriage requires work and they have never really sugarcoated that reality. In an interview, the director shared that there is no “formula” or “special secret” aside from communicating with each other well.
They tackle difficult conversations constructively and without losing sight of what truly matters. Ron Howard also often gives credit to his wife for being his rock—from when he was just starting out his career to making it big as a filmmaker. With that kind of history between them, it’s no wonder they have only gotten stronger over the years.
Mel Gibson and Robyn Moore Gibson
Robyn Moore and Mel Gibson began dating in the 1970s, during the period when Gibson was working with the South Australian Theatre Company. Moore worked as a dental nurse at the time but despite the difference in their careers, love blossomed between the two. They dated for quite a while before they were wed in 1980, at a Catholic Church in Sydney, Australia. Impressively, the two were wed for three decades and their union was blessed with six sons and a daughter. Three of whom have also become established actors in their own right.
While it might seem that the two were headed for a lifetime together, news broke in 2009 about their separation. Lawyers from either side didn’t disclose much when it comes to the reasons, but they did make Hollywood history after Gibson agreed to a $400 million settlement, the highest in the industry’s history.
Jim Carrey and Melissa Womer
When Jim Carrey and Melissa Womer first met, they were still unknowns in the industry. Carrey was struggling to make a name for himself, while Womer moved to Los Angeles at age 17 to try and make her own Hollywood dreams happen. They met at the Comedy Store, which is the same stand-up comedy club that gave Carrey his start in the industry. Womer was working as a cocktail waitress for the establishment and was immediately drawn to the degree of energy the actor possessed.
They were wed in 1987 in Santa Monica, California. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Womer recalled the day as being “absolutely perfect”. However, their union wasn’t made to last. The couple eventually split in 1994, with Carrey admitting that it had been his fault. Their union did produce one daughter, Jane Carrey, who remains close to her father even at present.
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock first met in 2006, during the American Country Music Awards. Clarkson was rehearsing when Blackstock passed by. The singer recalled how he made everyone around him laugh and that was what caught her attention. Though she felt an immediate attraction, she didn’t act on her feelings as Blackstock was married at the time. The two would meet again at the 2012 Super Bowl and they reconnected. Eventually, the two went on their first date.
The couple got engaged in the same year and married in 2013. All was blissful for the first few years and the two even welcomed two children together, River Rose and Remy. After seven years of being together, the two officially split. It was not an easy process for either party, but it is clear that their investment planning is focused on their young children.
Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick
Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick’s 2015 nuptials came as a surprise to all of their family and friends who were present. However, it had been a long time coming for the pair. The two started out as friends and have known each other for a while before they decided to take their relationship to the next level. Roderick is younger than Joel, but that doesn’t seem to affect their love and admiration for each other. Roderick is a former executive at Morgan Stanley, though she has since left corporate life and currently works as an equestrian.
The couple currently has two daughters together, Remy Anne and Della Rose. As parents, they try their best to keep their children away from the prying eyes of the public and work hard to maintain a degree of privacy when it comes to their personal life.
Lee Meriwether and Marshall Borden
Actor Marshall Borden is best known for his performances in A Christmas Carol, Says It in Russian, and Quantum Leap. He and his wife, actress, and 1955 Miss America winner Lee Meriwether have been married for 34 years. Lee first met Marshall in San Antonio. At the time, both of them were starring in a production of Angel Street. While there weren’t sparks early on, they would continue to find themselves working together on many other projects. In time, feelings blossomed between them and they married in 1986.
The two have been inseparable since then, bonded by their love for each other and for their craft. Over the years, there have been many shared acting credit between them, after all. While they did not have children of their own, Borden treated Meriwether’s kids from a previous relationship like his own.
Karen Grassle and Leon Russom
Karen Grassle is best remembered for her portrayal of Caroline Ingalls in the drama series Little House on the Prairie. Her role on the show is often given credit for catapulting her career to even greater heights. The actress also often talks fondly of her time on set. Leon Russom, on the other hand, is known to audiences for his role as Admiral Toddman in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Though the two kept their relationship mostly private, it was no secret that they were once married to each other.
The actors were married back in 1976 before Grassle landed her role on Little House. They were together for four years but eventually ended up separating. In fact, Grassle had just split with Russom when she began filming. Fortunately for both, they ended up moving on to better relationships and remain active in the industry.
Pam Grier and Richard Pryor
Our next couple had been acquainted for a while before they became an item. When they reconnected during filming for Greased Lightning, Pryor took initiative and asked Grier out. From then on, the two began dating. It wasn’t always easy for them, but Grier does deserve praise for all the support and help she had given Pryor during their relationship. In fact, she helped him learn how to read. Eventually, the two moved into a home together and settled down. Despite the actress’s best efforts, however, she could not save their relationship.
In the end, she had to get lawyers involved and they officially split in 1977. At present, Grier is still an active actress. Over the years, she has made guest appearances in shows like Smallville, This Is Us, and recently starred in the popular series Bless This Mess, which aired from 2019 to 2020.
George Hamilton and Alana Stewart
When it comes to Hollywood’s most interesting personalities, George Hamilton will always be on the list. He has had quite the career, starring alongside actresses such as Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, and Brigitte Bardot. He might be in his eighties, but with his big personality and attitude towards life, you wouldn’t be able to tell. This is one of the things that drew Alana Stewart to him. Even to this day and despite their separation, both actors still have such a fondness for each other. They have even gone to say that their relationship is much better after the split.
The two married in 1972 and after a mere two years into their union, they separated. They have one son, Ashley Hamilton. At present, he is an active actor and singer-songwriter. He has received credit for his roles in Iron Man 3 and Off Key.
