He might have been the vicious Wolverine for the last few decades. But when he wasn’t on the movie set, Hugh Jackman was being tamed by his wife of near-on 30 years, Deborra-Lee Furness. The Australian prison drama “Correlli” starred Deborra-Lee Furness and was one of Hugh Jackman’s first acting jobs.
Although she is 13 years his senior, the two quickly became inseparable and tied the knot in April 1996. Jackman even designed Furness’ engagement ring himself. The couple had their wedding rings inscribed in Sanskrit, reading “Om paramar mainamar,” which literally means “we devote our union to a larger source.” They have since adopted two children, but ultimately separated in 2023.
Robert De Niro – Diahnne Abbott
When people think about Robert De Niro’s spouse, they usually think about Grace Hightower, whom he has been married to for the past few decades. However, his first marriage was to fellow actor Diahnne Abbott. The two met on a taxi ride to the auditions for the movie "Taxi Driver." De Niro promised to help her get the part, and they began dating and eventually married in 1976.
The couple had two children together, Drena and Raphael. They were married for twelve years and then divorced. Diahnne has pretty much been out of the spotlight ever since and has never remarried. De Niro is recognized as one of the greatest American actors of all time and is still making movies in his seventies.
Clint Eastwood – Maggie Johnson
Hollywood icon, Clint Eastwood, met swimsuit model Maggie Johnson in 1953 after the two were set up on a blind date. They fell for each other hard and fast and were wed only six months later. They were married for over two decades and had two kids, Alison and Kyle.
Unfortunately, rumors of infidelity plagued their marriage, and they legally separated in 1978. Their divorce was completed in 1984, and Johnson received a $25 million settlement. Eastwood went on to have many relationships and married television personality Dina Ruiz in 1996. They had one child together and divorced in 2014.
Orlando Bloom – Miranda Kerr
Imagine hitting the jackpot and winning the heart of the one and only Legolas. Model Miranda Kerr and "The Lord of the Rings" actor Orlando Bloom began dating in 2007. They married in a quiet ceremony in 2010 while Kerr was pregnant with their son. Flynn Christopher was born in January 2011.
Sadly though, all good things must come to an end and that's what happened to this seemingly perfect couple. After several months apart, Bloom and Kerr officially divorced in October 2013. Bloom has not remarried, while Kerr married Snapchat’s founder and CEO, Evan Spiegel, in 2017. They have two children.
Sean Connery – Micheline Roquebrune
There is no denying that James Bond has had an incredibly high number of love interests over the years. And the same can be said for the actors who played him - most notably, the late Sean Connery. French Moroccan golfer and artist Micheline Roquebrune first met legendary Bond actor Sean Connery at a golf resort.
Sparks immediately started flying, and in 1975, the two got married in a secret ceremony in Casablanca. Both Sean and Micheline had children from their previous marriages and decided not to have any together. Their happy marriage held on beautifully for over four decades until Sean's peaceful passing in October 2020.
