What famous celebrities are functional addicts
19 celebrity couples who have loved each other for several decades
Hollywood marriages are rarely long-lasting. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were last caught after twelve years of relationship. Big, real, true love - does it still exist in the celebrity world? Yes there is! We found 19 couples who have been together for at least 20 years. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson or Meryl Streep and Don Gummer - we'll tell you which stars have been happy with the same partner for several decades.
19. Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith - 21 years old
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinket Smith have been going through thick and thin together for 21 years now. Recently there have been rumors about a marriage crisis, but it has now been overcome. "I've done a lot of marriage counseling," the actor told the Sun. There were "dark moments", but thanks to the couple therapy everything is now back to normal, he and his wife have developed further together. The example shows: If you don't give up immediately in a crisis, a relationship can definitely get even stronger.
18. Keely Shaye Smith & Pierce Brosnan - 22 years old
Former "James Bond" actor Pierce Brosnan is a truly loyal soul when it comes to love. He was married to his first wife, Cassandra Harris, for eleven years - but then tragically the couple died. Harris died of ovarian cancer, and her widower set up a foundation for cancer research. But Brosnan was granted a second great love, he has been in a relationship with journalist Keely Shaye Smith since 1994, and has been married since 2001. The couple have two children together and - despite prophecies of doom that Keely's feminine curves are "not appropriate" for the wife of a Hollywood star - have been one heart and one soul for over 20 years.
17. Elton John & David Furnish - 23 years old
Homosexual couples are often accused of being light-hearted and promiscuous. However, Elton John and David Furnish prove that this stereotype is completely wrong. The British singer waited a long time before his outing and was even married to a woman in the meantime, but he has been in a happy relationship with the Canadian David Furnish for 23 years. The two men have been living in a registered partnership since 2005, together they raise two boys who were carried by a surrogate mother. One of them is the biological father, which one of them, but they do not know themselves.
16. John Travolta & Kelly Preston - 25 years
Incredible but true: the two Hollywood stars John Travolta and Kelly Preston have been a couple for 25 years. Even after the tragic death of her son Jett and bad rumors that the "Grease" star was actually gay and had, among other things, an affair with a pilot, he and Kelly stick together like bad luck. Despite recurring rumors of separation, the couple had a son named Benjamin in 2010.
15. Annette Bening & Warren Beatty - 25 years
Warren Beatty is the best example that even notorious women heroes can be tamed. To list all the women he had an affair with is beyond the scope of this story. A small excerpt is allowed: Bianca Jagger, Diana Ross, Elle Macpherson, Jane Fonda, Madonna, Raquel Welch, Joan Collins, Claudia Cardinale, Faye Dunaway, Diane Keaton or Goldie Hawn all fell for the charm of the Hollywood playboy. In 1991, however, Beatty met his fellow actor Annette Bening, who was 21 years his junior, and was so carried away by her that he gave up being a womanizer. Four children and 25 years later, the two are still visibly in love.
14. Jon Bon Jovi & Dorothea Hurly - 28 years old
Real rockers change their wives more often than their underpants. So much for the rumor. Jon Bon Jovi is apparently a real exception here, because he has been in a relationship with his high school lover Dorothea for 28 years. Four children together crown the couple's happiness. The fact that the cuddly rocker shouldn't have cuddled only with his wife in the last three decades does not detract from love. With cuddly songs dedicated to her like "Bed of Roses", Dorothea seems to have found forgiveness easy. But extramarital affairs are now a thing of the past.
13. Steven Spielberg & Kate Capshaw - 28 years old
Hollywood star director Steven Spielberg doesn't think much of changing partners. The monogamous gray-haired man has been in a relationship with actress Kate Capshaw for a proud 28 years, 23 of whom are married. The couple have three birth and two adopted children and live absolutely scandal-free in Hollywood.
12. Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon - 29 years old
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, who met while on the set, began dating in February 1987, and they married in September 1988. With two children and almost three decades later, the two actors still have a happy and scandal-free marriage. While Bacon was probably the bigger star at first, since Sedgwick was mainly subscribed to supporting roles, his wife overtook him a little with her leading role in the series "The Closer" at the latest. A real guy like Kevin can get over it without any problems, and he was recently seen in a leading role in a series ("The Following").
11. Michael J. Fox & Tracy Pollan - 30 years
Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan have been going through thick and thin together for 30 years now. At the beginning of their relationship, the actor was a celebrated star thanks to the "Back to the Future" trilogy and romantic Hollywood films such as "Doc Hollywood" and "A Concierge to Fall in Love". But his wife has proven that she is serious about the vows "in good times and bad" and is loyal to Fox, who has been suffering from Parkinson's for years, here too. Four children together are evidence of a loving and passionate relationship.
10. Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson - 31 years old
Tom Hanks' first marriage lasted only a few years, but the two-time Oscar winner hit the bull's eye on the second attempt. He and Rita Wilson have been a couple since September 1985 and have been married since 1988. While Hanks is shooting one top film after another, Wilson has always been content with supporting roles. No problem for her, because she has played a leading role in real life for over 30 years.
9. Helen Mirren & Taylor Hackford - age 31
Helen Mirren only found her great love when she was over 40, but since then she has not let go of her sweetheart. The British Oscar winner and US director Taylor Hackford have been a couple since 1986, and they finally got married in 1997. The couple are still visibly in love with each other and often exchange sweet kisses on the red carpet.
8. Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell - 33 years old
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell also still act like lovebirds in love - after 33 years of relationship! Although - or perhaps because - both have been married before, they don't think much of marriage. Goldie and Kurt are the best example that a long-term relationship works even without a marriage license. The couple could have been together for over 40 years, by the way, but the then 21-year-old Goldie declined to date the 16-year-old Kurt, who was fire and flame for her after the first meeting, due to the age difference. Years later, there was still radio on both sides.
7. Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne - 35 years old
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have been a couple since July 1981, and they married a year later. Between 2002 and 2004, MTV viewers were able to watch how the parents of Aimee, who avoided the limelight, and Jack and Kelly, who have no problems with it, master their everyday marriage. That it is not always easy is proven by the fact that Sharon and Ozzy have split up twice at short notice in recent years. The reason for this was a drug relapse and an extramarital affair of the sex addict old rocker. Recently, however, the reconciliation followed, because more than 30 years together are not thrown away so easily.
6. Dustin Hoffman & Lisa Gottsegen - 36 years old
Dustin Hoffman has been married to the 17 years younger lawyer Lisa Gottsegen for 36 years now. The couple have four children together. Although the actor says he doesn't really believe in monogamy, he has learned to be faithful for the sake of his wife. "The partnership with my wife is far too important to me to endanger her. That's why I think loyalty makes sense, no matter how I feel about monogamy," Hoffman once said in an interview.
5. Meryl Streep & Don Gummer - 39 years
The marriage of three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep with the sculptor Don Gummer is considered one of the most stable in Hollywood. One looks in vain for crises in the celebrity couple, who have been in a relationship for 39 years and have four children together. When Streep received her third Oscar in 2012 for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady", she made her husband a wonderful declaration of love and thanked her for "making her happy in so many ways".
4. Bono & Ali Hewson - 40 years
U2 frontman Bono is an absolutely loyal soul. At the age of 15 he fell in love with his school colleague Ali Hewson, with whom he has been married since 1982. The businesswoman and activist inspired the singer to write numerous songs such as "The Sweetest Thing". Groupies or colleagues could never tempt the native Irishman - he knows where he belongs, namely with his wife and their four children.
3. Jeff Bridges & Susan - 41 years
Jeff Bridges and his wife Susan have been going through life together for a proud 41 years. Affairs with colleagues were never an issue for the actor. "That only causes trouble. My family was and is too valuable to me for it. I know that you can lose everything through sex," said Bridges in an interview in 2010. Lucky for his wife Susan, who gave him three daughters.
2. Thomas & Thea Gottschalk - 43 years
Admittedly, Thomas Gottschalk is not a real Hollywood star, but at least the German entertainer has lived in California for decades. His wife Thea, to whom the former "Wetten, dass ..?" Moderator has been married since 1976, has been at his side for over four decades. The couple met four years earlier at a ball in Munich. In Markus Lanz's talk show two years ago, Gottschalk referred to his Thea as a "grenade".
1. Kirk Douglas & Anne Buydens - 63 years old
The longest Hollywood relationship award goes to Kirk Douglas and his wife Anne Buydens. The couple met in 1953 and married a year later. Over 60 years later, Kirk and Anne are still of one heart and one soul. For the previous couple, the two are the best proof that lifelong relationships are also possible in Hollywood.
