In honor of National Marriage Week, we're profiling the long-lasting unions in Celebland!
Marriages are always hard work. But, try adding dozens of paparazzi cameras trailing your every move, total strangers making judgments about your relationship and printing them in magazines, and a spouse whose jobs requires frequently making out with some of the most attractive actors today, and keeping a marriage alive becomes even harder.
Our list of Hollywood's most famous male serial daters.
Hollywood is practically known for the dating and mating habits of its stars. The celebs hook up and shake up on a pretty regular basis, making headlines across the country for their many flings. Especially those boys. Of course, there are a handful of men who've been linked to crazy numbers of ladies. Those select few have risen above the rest to take a spot on our list of the most notorious celebrity womanizers. Pretty big honor, eh? We count them down.
Will their marriage survive their daughter's sex change?
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening were an unlikely couple from the start—he was a notorious playboy, she was an up-and-coming actress, who happened to be 21 years his junior. So they sent shock waves through Hollywood when Bening tamed Beatty, turning him into a doting husband and father. And the two seemed to defy the Hollywood odds, with their stable marriage and big family, so we were shocked to hear that they may be headed for Splitsville.
In a city where partners are constantly changing, there are a few pairings that have proven to be a real teammates. We've found even more star-crossed lovers that have stayed together while romances among other elite have burned out.
A look at some enduring love songs and the women who inspired them.
When American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox performed Janis Joplin's "Me And Bobby McGee" last week, it got everyone thinking about who the real Bobby McGee was. The tune, written by Janis' former lover Kris Kristofferson, might have actually been inspired by Janis herself. Some songwriters are much more forthcoming about the muses behind their compositions. Here now is a list of love songs and the famous ladies who inspired them.
Admit it ladies: You, too, have sung these lyrics with a particular gentleman in mind. You're so vain. You probably think this song is about you. You're so vain. I'll bet you think this song is about you. Don't you? Don't you? Ahhh... such poetic truth in those lines, the beauty of which always stemming from the fact it was a song for the "everywoman" about the "everyman" in her life. But now the gavotting, apricot-scarf-wearing man has been revealed: No. It is not actor Warren Beatty. Nor is it Mick Jagger or ex-husband James Taylor. In fact, it's not even a former lover of Ms. Simon at all, says Spinner.com.
And his list of lovers is allegedly WAY longer than ours.
The number of men this Celeb Lover has slept with? Five and a half (don't ask). The number of women (or, um, whomever) that Warren Beatty has purportedly bedded? 12,775.
We just went bowlegged while reading that number.
Outside is barbaric, so stay in with a steamy or chilly romantic movie.
It's officially not fit for man nor beast outside, and with a hurricane bearing down on the East Coast, there's no better time to hole up in a dark, air-conditioned room, perhaps with someone you love and/or would not mind seeing naked, and pop in some sexy summer movies.
