Goes to show: Looks aren't everything!
There are many hot celebrity couples that fans love because they just look picturesque together. It's shallow, but true! However, not all of them fit society's mold of attractive, which honestly gives us hope for us at home.
Do you have dreams of marrying a celebrity but don't fit into society's stupid box of "hot?” Most of us have been there. Well, the good news is that not all celebrities want a young supermodel to bring to award shows. Many have married people who look like the average joe and aren't famous, but have awesome careers and personalities.
Some of these spouses have successful careers as CEOs or bankers. Others are very intelligent and work in research. Then there are those who work in the Hollywood business but are behind the scenes by directing, shooting and producing. You might actually be a fan of the work they have done with their spouses and not even know it.
Then there are the famous couples who are known for being polar opposites. One might be type-cast as the sex pot on screen, while the other is usually the funny or serious actor. But off-screen, they have a lot more in common than the public would assume.
A big trend among these mismatched couples is that they are pretty long-lasting. Maybe we could learn a thing or two about looks: they are definitely not the most important thing when it comes to relationships.
Also, chances are you didn't even know these couples have been married because they have kept their relationship private. It's probably easier to keep a marriage together without the critique of media picking apart every aspect of their relationship.
