10+ Celebrity Couples Whose Love Is Ony Getting Stronger With Years
Finding true love is not easy, especially in the world of showbiz. Relationships in this industry are often fleeting, making it challenging to keep up with the ever-changing dating scene. However, a few couples defy the odds and stand the test of time. They build a life together, raising children, exploring the world, and gracefully aging side by side. Their enduring love story serves as a remarkable inspiration to all of us.
1. Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
They first encountered each other at a lively beach party in Mexico back in 1994. Since that fateful meeting, they have remained inseparable for over 20 years. Although it took them seven years to take the plunge and exchange vows in 2001, their commitment stood strong.
Throughout their journey, they gracefully shielded their relationship from the public’s prying eyes, choosing to keep their union private. However, every now and then, they generously share endearing snapshots on social media, bringing joy to their followers.
Matt and Lucy have been in a loving relationship for 22 years, and they are now blessed with three daughters named Gia, Isabella, and Stella. When questioned about the key to a thriving marriage, Lucy revealed in an interview that they both believe in never taking each other for granted.
2. Jeff Bridges and Susan Geston
They met for the first time in 1975 when Jeff was filming Rancho Deluxe. Susan worked as a waitress back then, and she was 21. It was love at first sight, and they decided to become a couple in 1977. They have been supporting each other ever since through all the rough times. They are also blessed with three beautiful children.
Even after so many years, they are still in love with each other. They grew together in their careers, becoming the best versions of themselves. They share their recipe for their long-lasting, passionate love: “Mutual respect”.
3. Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
For over 30 years, Oprah and Stedman Graham have been one of Hollywood’s favorite couples, even though they aren’t married — the couple has been together since 1986 (they were engaged in 1992, though), which proves that true love doesn`t need to be validated with a piece of paper. The photo above pictures them in 1995, after almost a decade of being together.
4. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
The 62-year-old actors, Tom and Rita, make up one of the filmmaking industry’s most beloved couples. Their love story began on the set of the ABC TV series Bosom Buddies in 1981. The photo above was taken in the 80s when they were just colleagues.
In 1988 the happy couple tied the knot, and more than 30 years later, they’re still in love and support each other, both in front of the camera and off-screen. The picture above was taken in 1999, 11 years after marriage.
5. Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Despite their age difference of 7 years, the Australian star Chris Hemsworth (35) and Spanish actress Elsa Pataky (42) have formed one of Hollywood’s most enduring and adorable romances — the couple met in early 2010, and just 3 months later, they got married. The picture above was taken in 2011, less than 6 months after their wedding.
In an interview in 2015, Chris noted that Elsa`s passionate attitude toward life makes him try to keep up with her, which he likes. Now they have a nearly decade-long love story and 3 children.
6. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith met Jada Pinkett in 1994 when she auditioned for the role of his girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air series. Jada didn’t get the part, but she became his girlfriend in real life in 1995 and his wife in real life in 1997. The photo above shows them in 1999, 2 years after they got married.
They have been together for a total of 23 years and have managed to keep their personal life private, despite the huge amount of gossip surrounding them. They also have 2 children, Jaden (20) and Willow (18), who often appear on the red carpet with them, making them one of the most famous Hollywood families.
7. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
This couple met on the set of Legend’s 2007 music video “Stereo,” where Teigen had a part as the star, and they have been together for more than a decade since then. The picture above was taken at the Grammys in 2008, their first public appearance as a couple. As Chrissy said in an interview, they broke up for one day, though, and it was a big mistake, so they never separated again. Legend and Teigen got married in 2013 and now have 2 children — daughter Luna and son Miles.
This couple has so many followers because they are never shy about sharing their most supportive and loving moments online, so #RelationshipGoals for sure!
8. Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
The 70-year-old 3-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep married the love of her life, sculptor Don Gummer, 72, over 40 years ago.

9. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, have been together for nearly 23 years — and they’re still one of the most inspirational couples in Hollywood. They met on the set of Correlli, a TV series, in 1995 and tied the knot less than a year later in 1996. They have been together ever since. The photo above pictures them in 2001, 5 years after they got married. Along the way, they’ve adopted 2 children — Oscar Maximilian and Ava Eliot — and watched Jackman’s career take flight.
At the beginning of their relationship, the couple reached agreements to keep it strong — not to spend more than 2 weeks apart and to not work simultaneously if they didn’t have to financially and always to be there to support each other, shared Hugh in an interview. So they have maintained that for 23 years so far!
10. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt

Victoria and David have been together for more than 21 years now and have 4 children. The picture above was taken in 1999, less than 6 months before their wedding.
At the start of 2017, the couple also renewed their wedding vows. Speaking on the Today Show, Victoria said of her partner: “He’s my soulmate. He’s the most incredible husband.

12. Matt and Luciana Damon
Matt Damon met his wife Luciana Barroso in a bar in Miami where he was filming the comedy Stuck On You in 2003.

The couple has 2 children together. The actor has also previously spoken about the pain of losing his first wife (1991) and their daughter Charlotte (2013) to cancer, both were in their early 40s when they died. “I suppose Keely is my North Star, always looking out for me,” the actor revealed in 2013.
13. Beyoncé and Jay Z
