You know, all you ever hear about is who is breaking up with whom and who is recovering from being dumped. What about all those couples who have been married for forever and a day? When both people in the relationship are famous, it can be increasingly difficult to fit two egos and careers inside one house but these examples of long-lasting love are great examples of making it work. Let’s take a moment to salute couples whose love has gone the distance:
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson met on the set of their movie, Volunteers, back in 1985, married in 1988 and have never looked back. A Hollywood couple to end all Hollywood couples, the two work together and support each other: she has supported his career decisions and even coached him on his accent for The Terminal, he played office gopher while she produced the blockbuster My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The couple have two children.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith met when she tried out for an episode of Will’s television show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, back in 1990 and married in 1997. The very close couple not only raises three children together (two of their own, son Trey is Will’s from a prior relationship) but they work together (the two starred in Ali together back in 2001. They both have agreed that divorce is not an option and work very hard on their careers and their marriage.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary this year and have one of the longest marriages in recent Hollywood history. The two are notoriously private about their relationship but have three children from their long union and are still going strong.
Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas have been married for 9 years. It might be the reported prenuptial agreement they have between them that reportedly states that Michael owes her millions for any indiscretion during their marriage if they divorce, but whatever the case, this marriage tamed notorious womanizer Douglas. Douglas reportedly said, “I want to father your children” when he met Zeta Jones and they’ve done just that, as the marriage has spawned two children and shows no signs of slowing down.
