What 17 Celebrity Couples Who’ve Stood the Test of Time Look Like Now
Seeing famous people in love is uplifting. And given that long-term celebrity couples are such a rare gem, we truly admire the lovebirds who continue to firmly stand by one another.
We at Bright Side are delighted every time the power of love wins over the obstacles that fame and fortune might create. And that’s why we have gathered a list of inspiring personalities who are still together after all this time.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Married for 24 years, this lovely duo has a son and twin daughters. In 1996, this is what Sarah Jessica had to say about her soon-to-be husband: ’’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.’’ And by the looks of this happy couple, nothing has changed since.
Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo
The multi-award-winning actress met her beau in acting class some 20 years ago, and the pair started dating a year later. The couple has one daughter and they live a ’’pretty low-key’’ life, according to Amy. She also acknowledges her artist husband’s full support throughout the years, saying, ’’He has sacrificed a lot. But he travels with me and helps to keep the family together. My husband is an extremely competent caregiver." Can this couple get any cuter?
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Brosnan
The former James Bond and the American TV journalist met 27 years ago in Mexico. Together, the couple has 2 sons, and this is Pierce’s second marriage after losing his first wife to cancer. The happy couple keeps the flame alive by spending quality time together as much as possible, and the hunky star never misses a chance to express his love to his long-time partner.
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford
Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack
The American actor fell for the British actress/dancer who’s 14 years his junior when he first saw her in the Broadway show, Cats, in London. In 1999, Selleck revealed, ’’Jillie and I have a pretty good partnership, we don’t do anything or make any decisions without consulting each other.’’ It seems that this approach has indeed paid off given that they are still together after 34 years of marriage.
Annette Bening and Warren Beatty
For decades, Warren was known to be one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. This, of course, all changed when he and Annette tied the knot 29 years ago. The couple has 4 children, and when asked about the secret to their long-lasting marriage, Warren replied, ’’She always surprises me.’’ Well, we must agree that keeping things exciting surely helps the love last.
Steve Carell and Nancy Walls
We love how fate has a way of bringing 2 people together! Carrell met his future wife at a comedy club where she was a student in his improvisation class. The pair has been married for 26 years now, and they have a son and a daughter together. Both known for their sharp sense of humor, we can only imagine how fun this couple’s daily life must be.
Christopher Walken and Georgianne Walken
It’s certainly not every day that we hear of a Hollywood couple celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Married for 52 years and still going strong, Christopher and Georgianne met during a theater tour in 1963. This inspiring couple doesn’t have any children, but they’ve been proud cat parents for many years.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
This picture-perfect couple had crossed paths when they were cast as love interests in a popular TV series. 26 years and 3 children later, the couple is still happily together, and we love watching their relationship thrive.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
Romance reaches new heights when 2 major country music stars fall for each other. With 25 years of wedded bliss and 3 daughters under their belts, this couple makes us believe that fairy tales don’t only happen in movies.
Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow
These 2 lovebirds prove that humor is the key to a strong and happy relationship. Leslie and Judd have been together for 24 years and are the proud parents of 2 daughters. Nothing seems to be slowing down this adorable couple, and their frequent work collaborations show that they have real chemistry, even on a professional level.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Born on the same day but 25 years apart, this Hollywood power couple proves that love knows no age. When recently asked about her relationship, Catherine said, ’’First of all, we have a lot of fun together." They must know a thing or 2 about what makes a marriage work given that after 23 years and 2 kids together, their bond seems to be growing stronger by the day.
Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova
With their good looks and obvious chemistry, this dreamy pair has proven that they know the key to a long-lasting relationship. Together for 20 years now, the Spanish singer and his tennis player wife started dating in their twenties after she had appeared in his music video. Today, they are the proud parents of 3 adorable kids.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard
Peter, who was a close friend of Maggie’s brother, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, started dating the actress 19 years ago. The couple tied the knot in 2009 in Italy and they have 2 daughters.
Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher
This is one of those couples who seem to have an unbreakable bond. The 2 met 19 years ago at a party in Sydney, and the English actor admitted to being instantaneously smitten by the Australian redhead. The couple has 2 daughters and a son, and they currently reside in Australia.
Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
The Hollywood A-lister met her cameraman beau on the set of a movie in 2000. They got married 2 years later in New Mexico and became parents to a twin son and daughter as well as a younger son. The duo is private and usually shies away from the public eye, but whenever we get a glimpse of them together, we can’t get over how lovely the couple is.
Seth Rogen and Lauren Miller
Lauren and Seth started dating 17 years ago, and they wed in 2011. The pair doesn’t have any children, and the actor revealed that they don’t plan on having any in the future. Whether it’s just the 2 of them or they somehow become a family of 10, something tells us that this couple’s everyday life will always be far from boring.
