15 Famous Women Who Proudly Ditched Traditional Stereotypes and Chose Their Own Life Path
Famous people are always under the scrutiny of their fans, who have opinions about celebrities’ private lives. Some struggle to cope with public pressure, so they keep their personal lives confidential. But others don’t care about what other people think, and they enjoy their lives, not paying attention to what everyone else has to say about their choices. And this is precisely what the women from our article are like.
Kate Beckinsale prefers dating much younger men.
In 2017, Kate started dating Matt Rife, a comedian who was 22 years younger than her. A year later, she got together with TV host Jack Whitehall, who was 15 years younger. Then she was seen with actor Pete Davidson, with whom they had a 20-year age difference. In 2020, Beckinsale had a new boyfriend, musician Goody Grace, who was 24 years younger.
Cher also likes much younger men.
In November 2022, the singer was spotted with music producer Alexander Edwards, who was 36 years old. Some people on the Internet criticized their relationship because of the significant age difference: Cher was 76. But Cher pays no attention to such judgments. She even responded to one of the comments: “Love doesn’t know math.”
Sharon Stone enjoys solitude.
In the interview, the actress said that she is single. “I like being alone more and spending time with my kids and friends,” she clarified. Her recent brief romance ended when her younger boyfriend hinted that the actress could use some Botox injections, and when she refused, he wasn’t interested in seeing her anymore. Nevertheless, the actress’ decision remained unchanged.
Paris Hilton broke off her engagement three times but finally got married.
Women are often told that they should not put off getting married or they will stay single. But Paris Hilton disagrees with this opinion. She had broken up with her boyfriends three times when everything was almost ready for the wedding.
In 2021, when she was 40, Hilton said “yes” for the fourth time. Many people thought it wasn’t serious. But nine months later, she and her fiancé, businessman Carter Reum, had a high-profile wedding, showing that it’s never too late to find true love. In 2023, the couple had a baby boy from a surrogate mother.
Sienna Miller is in no hurry to tie the knot, even though she has been engaged three times.
In 2020, actress Sienna Miller broke off her engagement to editor Lucas Zwirner. She has also been engaged to Jude Law and Tom Sturridge but never married. But Miller is not disappointed with this turn of events. In an interview, she said: “I never dreamed of getting married. My engagements didn’t end in a wedding, but I think it’s better than three divorces.” Now the 41-year-old star is dating 25-year-old actor and model Oli Green.
Pink proposed to her boyfriend herself.
Pink’s husband, Carey Hart, is a famous motocross racer. Once at a race, the singer watched her boyfriend compete and showed him a poster asking, “Will you marry me?” It happened in 2005, and the couple has been together ever since. They are raising two children.
Elizabeth Taylor also didn’t wait for her lover to propose.
Taylor was married eight times and proposed herself to her second husband, actor Michael Wilding. He was 20 years older than the actress. They were married for five years. During that time, they had two sons.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for 40 years but are still not married.
Hawn believes marriage is a sure way to break up, and if she had married Russell, there’s no way they would have stayed together that long. Although we think it’s not the only reason for their long-lasting relationship, the actress’ opinion is worth listening to.
Keira Knightley decided that having children was an excellent reason to reconsider her career approach.
In 2020, the actress announced she would no longer be naked on the set. It was connected to the fact that Knightley had children, and although she is happy with her body, she is no longer willing to go to any lengths to appear in front of the camera.
Nicole Kidman has the same priorities: family is more important to her than work.
In 2007, the actress was supposed to play in the movie “The Reader”, but after discovering her pregnancy, she turned down the role. She had been trying to conceive for several years, and when she finally succeeded, she chose not to put herself at risk.
Kate Winslet played the role, and she ended up receiving an Oscar for it. But we doubt Kidman regrets she missed the opportunity because she became a mom of Sunday Rose, and she had won the Oscar award before that, in 2003.
Catherine Deneuve got a tattoo at the age of 70.
Some may say that tattoos are only for young people. But Deneuve thinks differently. At the age of 70, she adorned herself with a tattoo on her leg. And she also has a tattoo on her back.
Jane Seymour still wears daring outfits at an older age.
In 2023, the British actress celebrated her 72nd birthday, but she believes this is not a reason to deprive herself of the pleasure of going out in a bold outfit. Seymour has retained a slender figure and proves that a woman of any age can catch the admiring glances of others.
77-year-old Dolly Parton shares this opinion.
In 2022, the singer appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in a daring and dazzling mini-dress with deep cleavage. She’s an excellent example to look up to when we’re her age, right?
Adriana Lima appeared on the catwalk just four months after giving birth, proudly showing what a nursing woman looks like.
The supermodel became the mother of her third child in 2022, making her lover, producer Andre Lemmers, happy. But Adriana did not even consider taking maternity leave and returned to work. The model appeared on the runway at the Qatar Fashion United by CR Runway show during the World Cup and delighted the audience by proudly showing what a nursing mother’s body looks like.
Jennifer Aniston admitted that she can’t have kids and has no regrets about it.
Endless accusations of selfishness for not having a baby and tabloid speculation about her pregnancy wore the actress down. In a candid interview, she admitted wanting children and tried to get pregnant many times. Her attempts were unsuccessful, but she has no regrets. “The ship has sailed. I even feel a little relief now because there is no more “Can I?”
Examples of celebrities who fight against prejudices and show us how to live by our own rules are inspiring. We’re sure that if we learn not to care about other people’s thoughts, we’ll understand our desires better and learn to enjoy our lives.
