10 Actresses That Didn’t Give Up After a Failed Relationship and Hit the Jackpot

People who live happily in a marriage earn more and develop their careers faster. When we see the fascinating work of actors, we always wonder who helps them deal with their problems, who comforts them when a movie fails, and who believes in their success on the Red Carpet before an Oscar ceremony.

We at Bright Side became really interested in who the husbands of these super-popular actresses are and how they manage to live a happy life even when their wives are constantly busy.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski

In the past, Emily Blunt used to date musician Michael Steven Bublé, but in 2008, they broke up. Emily met John accidentally: that evening, she was in a restaurant with her friends talking about the advantages of a single life.

One year later, John proposed to Emily and described this story like this, “She did cry after I cried and we cried and then everyone around us was crying. Then, I think people weren’t really sure what was going on, but they were crying because we were crying. But it was great. At the end of the day, she said yes which is great.” Blunt and Krasinski got married in 2010. One of the most significant works for them was the movie A Quiet Place: they made it together and the movie got a lot of awards.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick

In 2019, they celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary. Sarah says that she is madly proud of her husband’s projects. The actress claims that she always gets very angry when someone tries to find some problem in their relationship or when the media say that they had an argument or something like that.

Before Parker got married to Broderick, she dated actor Robert Downey Jr. and lawyer JFK, Jr. Sarah remembers the time when her relationship with Broderick first started, “He’s probably the funniest fellow I’ve met in my whole life. He’s so bright, so handsome. I think he’s the most handsome man I’ve seen in my life. And he inspires me. I’m mad for him, totally.”

Vera Farmiga and Renn Hawkey

This is the second marriage for Vera Farmiga, before she was married to actor Sebastian Roché for 8 years. After the divorce, Vera met Renn Hawkey — American musician, songwriter, actor, and producer. They dated for 4 years before they got married in 2008, so they have been together for 15 years now and they are raising 2 children.

Rosamund Pike and Robie Uniacke

Rosamund and Robie got married in 2009 and they now have 2 children. Robie Uniacke is a mathematician and he is 18 years older than his wife. This is not the first relationship for either of them and they both had an unpleasant experience before. Pike says that Robie’s sharp mind helped her shape her approach to the characters she was going to portray. The difficult and dramatic roles that the actress has taken on prove that this influence is precious and valuable.

Felicity Jones and Charles Guard

The actress has had a failed relationship in the past: after 10 years together, she broke up with her boyfriend in 2013. 2 years later, she met director Charles Guard and got married to him in 2018.

Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley

Margot and Tom met each other on a movie set in 2014. He was the director’s assistant and she played one of the main roles in Suite Française. The couple kept their relationship a secret and they didn’t want to admit that things were serious. In 2016, they got married.

By the way, Tom Ackerley was the producer of I, Tonya. Margot Robbie played the main part in this film and was nominated for Best Actress. So her husband is her greatest support.

Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo

Amy and Darren studied acting together and their relationship started 17 years ago — in 2002. But they didn’t get married until 2015, 13 years from the start of their relationship. They have a daughter together.

During all this time, actor and artist Le Gallo has supported his lady during every event. In 2017, Amy Adams received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In one of her interviews, the actress said that she was very grateful to her husband: he helps her preserve a sense of family even though she lives at a crazy pace because of her career.

Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski

Both of these actors have had failed relationships in the past. Seyfried’s was 5 years long and Sadoski’s lasted for 8 years. Seyfried and Sadoski met in 2015 and they announced their engagement in 2015. They got married in 2017, a short time before their daughter was born.

Jessica Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo

Gian Luca is an Italian designer who is 6 years younger than Jessica. They got married 5 years after the start of their relationship. Chastain said that the marriage feels different than she had expected. Everyone around her kept saying that the first year of family life would be very tough but the actress says it was absolutely unbelievable.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

Nicole and Keith met at a gala party in 2005. The actress remembers that she was perplexed: she realized that she was in love, but Keith didn’t show any interest in her. According to Urban, her phone number was in his pocket: but he was scared he would have nothing to talk about with her and that she wouldn’t find him interesting. 4 months later, Urban finally decided to call her and one year later they got married. Now they have 2 children.

The musician admits that Nicole saved his life and helped him shake his drug addiction forever (before, he had been to rehab several times). In 2019, the couple celebrated another wedding anniversary and on that day, Keith wrote on his Instagram page, “‪13 years of magic, music, romance, wild adventures, and the ongoing discovery of pure love. Happy Anniversary Babygirl.
