Still, the following celebrities couldn’t give a flying duck about what we think. And while we totally respect them for that, we still want to share with you all the details about their unconventional relationships.
Jamie Cullum and Sophie Dahl
Listen, the whole, “guys should be taller” standard is outdated. Height has nothing to do with love. Like age, it’s just a number. No couple proves this point more than the adorable Jamie Cullum and Sophie Dahl. These two are pretty well-known in their individual careers. Cullum is a singer and songwriter while Dahl is a model and author.
Dahl towers over Cullum by almost half a foot. Dahl once commented about their height difference, stating, “I think if we were both slightly more neurotic people, it would be crippling, but the fact of the matter is that we’re both happy. It’s cool.”
Rhea Durham and Mark Wahlberg
American actor Mark Wahlberg can be pretty intimidating because of the roles he takes on. He’s known for starring in gritty films, like "The Fighter" and "The Departed." He also tried careers in rap, producing, and business. However, the action star extraordinaire seems tame when he stands next to his wife, who’s an inch taller than him.
Durham is a model, so yeah, she is pretty tall. The height, of course, was not an issue for the happy couple. Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham enjoyed their long courtship so much, they decided to cap it off eight years later with a wedding!
David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts
While he might be most famous for his performances on shows such as "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch," it's not just the acting game that David Hasselhoff has mastered over the years. The star had married twice before he found his current love, Hayley Roberts, back in 2011. The model is a whopping 27 years younger than the actor.
The couple decided to make things official in 2017, in an intimate wedding ceremony in Italy. The two share a home in the Hollywood Hills and are rumored to live in the same neighborhood as Justin Bieber and some of the Kardashians.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
The British-American power couple has been making waves for their radical exit from the Royal House. Prince Harry did not want to live in the limelight of the Royal House so he sought out the unconventional path and went for the love of his life - Meghan Markle
Despite living a life of fame and having cameras in their face almost all the time, the two just want to live a normal life with their children in America. Prince Harry truly wants to live an average life which is why they had to make some drastic changes to be fully happy.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
In both love and comedy, these guys have vowed to always be there for each other. And unlike her character Sarah Marshall, Kristen Bell stayed committed to the same guy through thick and thin. The pair started dating in 2007. Three years later, they announced their engagement.
The two are known for airing out their dirty laundry, and they don't feel sorry about it at all. They have shared a lot about terrible fights they've had with each other. They also refuse to be referred to as "couple goals" because they claim that their relationship, like all relationships, is far from perfect.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas
In 2012, yoga teacher Hilaria Thomas walked down the aisle and said, “I do,” to actor Alec Baldwin. Alec basically stalked Hilaria in an NYC restaurant, and she pretty much fell in love with him on the spot. Since Thomas is in the business of health and wellness and Baldwin is an A-lister, it may be pretty difficult to tell that they’re separated by a 26-year age gap.
But the couple doesn’t let the age difference get in the way of their happiness. In fact, they’re still together to this day. Of course, the couple have had other problems to deal with ever since Baldwin's life-shattering incident on the set of "Rust."
Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish
If you are into comedy movies, you most probably know Kevin Hart. With such a giant reputation, it is not obvious that Hart is just 5’4” tall. Hart is actually three inches shorter than his stunning wife, Eniko Parrish. But he does not take any offense to the jokes about it... most of the time.
In fact, he even makes light of this height difference himself. At a recent red carpet event, he said “I don’t believe in doing things to manufacture my body to appeal to what I think people might like.” Word. Just be who you are, Kevin!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
Cameron Diaz made a name for herself in movies like The Mask," "Charlie’s Angels," "Shrek," and "There’s Something About Mary," among others. Now that the towering, blonde beauty is fresh in your mind, it is time for you to meet this musician who, according to Cameron, makes her life feel complete.
Nicole Richie played matchmaker for Cameron and Good Charlotte frontman, Benji Madden. Cameron said yes to Madden’s marriage proposal in 2015, despite the obvious height difference. The two were only engaged for 17 days before they got married. These days, Diaz is retired, but still enjoys being Benji's girl.
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor
Sarah Paulson is most well-known for each individual role that she’s played during her many years on "American Horror Story." In the season they dubbed “Cult,” she portrays a lesbian, which as it turns out, accurately represents her personal love life. Paulson has been dating actress Holland Taylor since back in 2015.
Taylor, who acted in "The Practice" and "Two and a Half Men," is 32 years older than Sarah. She could literally be her mother! But, the actresses' relationship continues to grow and they seem to be very happy together. And the two respect each others' busy careers, even at this stage of their lives.
Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh
Pharell Williams and Helen Lasichanh were lost in friend-zone limbo for two years until they realized they were meant to be. Despite this passion-free friendship and the two-inch height difference, Williams and Lasichanh were both smitten with each other. “She just stood out,” and he’s not just talking about Helen’s soaring 5’11” height.
We guess Pharrell overcompensates with that huge hat of his. Pharrell’s statement describes how Helen captivated his heart. Finally, after five years of dating, they decided to take their vows. The couple even wore rather unique outfits to their wedding, opting for plaid. They are now parents to a son and triplets.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
Contrary to what some commercials may have led you to believe, Matthew McConaughey is not actually in a relationship with his car. In fact, he’s already taken by his beautiful wife, model Camila Alves. After the two met in 2006, they immediately hit it off and started dating.
In 2011, McConaughey proposed to Alves on Christmas Day, and she said yes to the actor, who is 14 years her senior. But, does age really matter when the people in question both look ridiculously good? The gap in age doesn’t seem to bother the stars, who are still happily married today.
Elton John and David Furnish
There is no denying that music icon Elton John has been a real trailblazer over the years. The "Rocketman" singer and his filmmaker husband, David Furnish, were some of the very first voices behind civil partnerships in the UK. In 2014, they decided to make it official and legalized their marriage – after being together for nearly two decades.
The same-sex couple is separated by a 15-year age gap, which means they had two different fights to fight when it came to public opinion. But the two are just too adorable together to separate! From where we're standing, all we can see is true love.
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
David Cross might be best known for "blueing himself" on the hilarious sitcom "Arrested Development." But there is a lot more to Tobias Funke than what meets the eye. This adorable couple met on an airplane in 2007, when the actor actually asked to be sat next to the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress.
By 2011, the stars were engaged, despite the 20-year age gap that stood between them. In 2017, the couple welcomed daughter Marlow into the world. Although there has been some media criticism about some remarks Cross has made, Tamblyn stands by him to this day.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
Joe Jonas rose to fame as a member of the boyband The Jonas Brothers. Like all child stars before him, Jonas has had his fair share of whirlwind romances before finally meeting the girl he’s going to marry. And then came along Sophie Turner, who took the world by storm with her performance in "Game of Thrones" as Sansa Stark.
And none of the past girlfriends were able to sweep Jo-Jo off his feet like Sophie Turner did. He stands at 5’7" and Sophie is 5'10". They started dating in 2016. Even with the three-inch height difference, they decided to get engaged and marry!
Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster
Rock legend Rod Stewart is one of the biggest names in the business, selling more than 100 million records over the course of his career. In 2007, he met his third wife, television personality Penny Lancaster, and decided to put a ring on it. Fans were heartbroken, but Penny and Rod had found something truly special – even with the enormous age gap between them.
The age difference between the two is a substantial 27 years, and, as disappointed as some of his female fans may be, the couple is still happily married. And it seems like age isn't the only big gap between the two...
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Here’s another one of those couples where the girl is taller than the guy—Nicole Kidman is 5’11” and Keith Urban is 5’10”. This couple is always so lovey-dovey, even in public. During interviews and on red carpets, they steal the show with how sweet they are.
After her divorce from fellow actor Tom Cruise, Kidman gave love another try. And we’re all happy that she did. She has been married to country singer, Keith Urban, since 2006. One thing is for sure, the couple share the same roots, having both hailed from "down under," and are now enjoying life in the US of A.
Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond
You can’t always tell the height difference between two people when it’s just a matter of a few inches. That impression holds true for this couple. Tina Fey is taller than Jeff Richmond by just 3 inches. But when Fey wears her pumps, Richmond looks just how she likes to describe him—travel size.
They got married in 2001. Ever since they met in 1994, they have also been working together to produce great pieces of cinema and television. They both have breakthroughs in the field of comedy, including "The Second City," "30 Rock," and "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," to name a few.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Some high-class celebrities like to stick within their circles when it comes to marriage and love affairs but Matt Damon is different. He wanted to go for someone outside of his clique and that was the day that Luciana Barroso fell into his life.
While he was in South Beach, friends dragged him outside for a few drinks to loosen up. Little did he know that he'd find his wife tending the bar they were in! Some may judge them for being in a mixed relationship between a normal person and a famous person, but they are having too much fun together to care.
Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz
There’s a common theme among most of these celebrity couples, which is that at least one of them is super good-looking. Hell, with most of them – both of them are good-looking, which is the case for Heidi Klum and her guitarist partner, Tom Kaulitz. Well, both of them are German, so that doesn't seem to be the disparity at play.
The former supermodel didn't mind the 16-year age difference and said that they’re so in love that it doesn’t matter, though she does admit that they got questioned about it quite often. It just goes to show that age is nothing but a number.
Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery
If you've seen "Grey's Anatomy" then you can not forget Ellen Pompeo's character. Meredith has had her fair share of interesting relationships - and her real-life marriage is no different. She's been on the down-low with her relationship with her husband Chris Ivery whom she married in 2007.
The two met at an unlikely place: a grocery store in LA! Ellen has been outspoken about how hard it can be to be in a mixed-race relationship and have mixed-race children and has faced backlash for it. Despite this, the couple are very happy together and laugh in face of adversity.
Zendaya and Tom Holland
The pair came to life during the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" film. Zendaya and Tom Holland play classmates in the Marvel film. When they attended the red carpet premiere of the film together, the height difference between them became more apparent. Zendaya actually stands two inches taller than Holland.
The two have been asked about their height difference and Zendaya said she couldn't care less. Apparently, her mom is also taller than her dad. We would go as far as to say that these two are maybe the most famous couple in the world. We just hope they end up standing the test of time.
Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Trogneux
When you are the leader of one of the most important countries on the planet, you're bound to have an eventful love life. President of France Emmanuel Macron surprised everyone when he announced his relationship with Brigitte Trogneux. Why? Well, she’s a little bit older than him – over two decades older, that is.
When he married Brigitte, critics had a lot to say about it, but the two stayed strong and remain happily married. He first met his wife in high school, when he was 15, and she was his teacher, which is one of the biggest reasons why some frowned upon the unorthodox romance.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith first met Jada when she auditioned for a role in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. When it comes to couples who ignore public opinion, you can not help but think about these two. There have been rumored to have an open relationship, but it is hard to tell if that's actually the case.
Not to mention the Oscar incident in which Will slapped Chris Rock for laughing at Jada. Whatever is going on behind the scenes, one thing is clear: they do not give a duck what we think about them and that is what makes their relationship work.
George and Amal Clooney
If there's one thing the public likes to criticize is huge age gaps. Well, the public was in luck when George And Amal Clooney started dating, as they have a 17-year age difference. Amal works with International law and human rights, while George is a mere actor.
When they got together, many eyebrows were raised, but they have proven they can make such a relationship work, staying together and even having children! Not to mention the fact that they have a house on an island bang in the middle of the River Thames. So there is plenty to say about this couple.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
Funnyman Eddie Murphy has a total of 10 children, two of which are with his current wife, model Paige Butcher. The actor had been married twice before, once to the former wife of “Babyface.” He had also been in a relationship with Mel B aka Scary Spice from the Spice Girls.
But Eddie shows no signs of slowing down in the love department anytime soon. Murphy is 18 years older than his wife, but you can’t tell by looking at him, because he looks incredible for his age! The couple welcomed their second child into the world in 2018 and are still happily married today.
Patrick Stewart and Sunny Ozell
Patrick Stewart first met Sunny Ozell in 2008, when she was working as a waitress at Franny’s in New York City. The two started spending time together and in 2013, they tied the knot. The actor, who has been married two times before, is 38 years older than his wife.
The adorable couple’s families don’t seem to have much of an issue with the age difference. In fact, Ozell’s father jokingly refers to Patrick as “son,” even though he’s actually 5 years his senior! You could go as far as to say that Steward went to a place "where no man has gone before."
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Ellen DeGeneres is one of the biggest voices in the LGBTQ community, but when she first came out, the public was not really on board - and that is a bit of an understatement. Still, she met Portia de Rossi and despite the fact they have a 15-year age gap between them, they fell in love.
Today, the public is all for the relationship but it hasn't always been this easy. In fact, Ellen has been through a lot in recent times, having felt the pressure to end her chat-show after facing numerous allegations of fuelling a toxic work environment.
Ari Cooper and Deryck Whibley
We think it's pretty clear why these two are on this list. Ari Cooper stands at 6’0”, half a foot taller than Whibley. Love’s ability to transcend such details as an unconventional height difference wasn’t the only wonder Whibley discovered when he met Ari.
In 2014, he suffered organ failure due to alcohol abuse. He had to stay in the hospital for months, during which time his loving fiancé never left his side. He even said in an interview that she was a huge help in turning his life around. A turbulent year later, the two got married and Whibley is now happily living a sober life.
George Takei and Brad Altman
You might remember George Takei from his role as Sulu in "Star Trek" where he moved from one place to another. But whatabout his personal life? Brad and George met at a gay club called the Frontrunners. George was awestruck by Brad's running skills and later on, the two worked hard to train together.
The two make a great team and George says the secret to their relationship is working together. George works hard at being a writer and actor while his partner is generally a great manager. The two make for a great pair and have been together for over three decades!
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
Han Solo actor Harrison Ford married Ally McBeal’s Calista Flockhart in 2010, which was about 8 years after they had initially started dating. Ford told reporters that he was very much in love with the actress, who is a considerable number of years younger than him.
The two have a 22-year gap in age separating them. But these two love birds don’t seem to mind and have been together for over two decades now. Ford has always been a popular figure with the ladies, ever since his days playing the "Star Wars" smuggler and Indiana Jones back in the '80s.
Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti
Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti are Millenials at heart because they met online through social media. Peele was the first person to slide into her DMs, being a huge fan of Chelsea's when she was on the road to making her own web series.
The two got together 3 years later and try to maintain a low-key type of lifestyle. The producer and Brooklyn 99 star have two children together and they're usually seen on the 'Gram showing off their funny family moments. People raise eyebrows because they come from different races, but they are just too happy together to care.
Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova
Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova come from completely different countries with Enrique hailing from Spain and his partner from Russia. In 2001, she starred alongside his partner in his music video "Escape" and the two started dating after the filming.
The couple has gotten backlash from the public and the media for not being married. But, the two are as happy as clams even though they have not said their vows. Despite having to retire early due to an injury, former tennis player Anna loves life with her man. The couple have three kids - two fraternal twins and another daughter.
Dick Van Dyke and Arlene Silver
So, there are some big age differences on this list, but if you thought you have seen the thick of it – you would be wrong! Arlene Silver is a makeup artist and dancer who first met Dick Van Dyke in the year 2006. Of course, Dick had his own show and starred in classic movies such as "Mary Poppins."
Many criticized the age gap between them – 46 years, believe it or not. To put this in perspective, it means that Dick is nearly five decades older than his wife. However, the two seem very happy together and are still married today.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening
During his legendary days, Warren Beatty was a famous womanizer. He could be seen in the arms of all of the hottest stars from the ’60s-’80s, including Diane Keaton and Madonna. But when he met Oscar winner Annette Bening on the set of his film "Bugsy," all of that changed, and he decided to settle down.
The Hollywood power couple tied the knot in 1992, and had four children together, including their oldest son Stephen, and their youngest daughter Ella. They have now been happily married despite the incredible gap in age — 22 years. Now that is real love.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Mila Kunis actually shared her first kiss ever with co-star Ashton Kutcher when they starred in "That ‘70s Show." But, it wasn’t until many years later that a romantic spark bloomed between the two. The couple made it official with their wedding, in 2015. Now they are happily living the married life, with two kids, Wyatt and Dimitri.
The two admitted that as a family they tend to skip showers. They have received a lot of backlash from the public about this, but it does not seem like that has caused them to bathe more. Even if they smell bad, they still look good!
Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke
Harry Potter is a grown-up now. Although at 5’5” it does not look that obvious. In one of his post-Harry Potter projects, "Kill Your Darlings," he plays the famous Beat poet, Allen Ginsberg. It was on the set of this film that he also happened to meet the love of his life.
Erin Darke is a fellow actor, starring regularly in both film and theatre. She is also known as Cindy, in "Good Girls Revolt." Although Darke is two inches taller than Radcliffe, they seem to be going strong. No spells or love potions are needed for this one, that's for sure!
Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly
There may be a huge age and height difference between these two, but it seems, for the lovebirds, that does not change a thing. Not to mention that they come from such different areas of entertainment. MGK and Megan Fox began dating in June 2020.
One of the biggest things that people notice about Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox as a couple is the fact that they have such a huge height difference between them. In fact, he's 6‘4" while she's 5’4”. He is literally an entire foot taller than her! Most people are actually bothered by the fact she's older than he is, but the two don't care!
Seth Green and Clare Grant
For some couples, the height differences can be quite startling, but that doesn't phase these two. While they may not see eye to eye physically, with Seth Green being 5’4” and wife Clare Grant standing at 5’7”, the pair are perfectly on par when it comes to their interests.
They both love comic books, TV, and something we also adore: fast food. With so many shared loves, the pair didn’t just team up for the Emmy award-winning animated TV show "Robot Chicken," they also teamed up for life. Grant and Green became engaged in 2009 and got married in 2010.
Peter Dinklage and Erica Schmidt
Peter Dinklage was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. The condition has not stood between him and a stellar career, celebrated by a host of loving fans. Dedicated though his fans may be, there is someone whose love for Dinklage we can not parallel — Dinklage’s wonderful wife, American actress Erica Schmidt.
The pair got married in 2005. Whenever Dinklage is asked about his family, he delivers some touchingly beautiful answers. When one interviewer asked about his wife, Dinklage replied, “she’s very inspiring. She’s definitely the artist of the family. I am just the TV actor who pays the bills.”
Aaron and Sam Taylor-Johnson
Sam Taylor-Johnson met Aaron in 2009 when she directed a film that he just so happened to be acting in. The director was 42 years old and the actor was... 19. But the age gap didn’t seem to have any effect on the connection they made, and they started dating not too long after the meetup.
Just because they don’t have an issue with the 23-year age difference, doesn’t mean that everyone felt the same way. The couple was torn apart by several media outlets who criticized the morality of the relationship. During their marriage, the couple had two daughters.
Tracy Pollan and Michael J. Fox
Tracy Pollan rose to fame primarily because of her portrayal of Ellen Reed, in "Family Ties." This talented girl is two inches taller than her (equally talented) husband, actor Michael J. Fox. She met Fox on the set of "Family Ties," where she played his girlfriend, but at the time, their romance remained strictly on-screen.
It seems, though, that fate had more in store for the couple. They met again years after the sitcom that shot them both to stardom. Then, the sparks were undeniable. The two-inch height difference melted from their minds, as a beautiful relationship began to flourish.
Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles
Olivia Wilde met funnyman, Jason Sudeikis, in 2011, over a decade and two children later, Olivia left him for former One Direction heartthrob, Harry Styles. Of course, Styles starred in the film that Wilde directed - "Don't Worry Darling." The relationship attracted negative media attention, with her leaving the father of her children for a man who is 10 years younger than her.
Still, the two ignore any and all media, especially when the public implied that their relationship was on the fritz. In November 2022, the couple ultimately seemed like they wanted to move on. Despite keeping things amicable, they decided to go their separate ways.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Beautiful actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is a full 25 years younger than her husband, actor and director Michael Douglas, but that has not kept them from being happily married for over two decades and, quite frankly, being one of the most iconic Hollywood couples of the 21st Century.
They have faced some turbulence along the way, but for the most part, things between the actors seem to be working well. During one interview, Catherine revealed one of her secrets to a long and happy marriage: separate bathrooms. Hey, if you think about it – that makes a lot of sense. Note taken, Catherine!
Omari and Jae Hardwick
Omari Hardwick, in case you didn't know, is the actor from the hit show "Power." He is also well known for starring in many movies and even collaborating with Spike Lee at one point. He has certainly had a successful career so far in the world of entertainment. And the same can be said for his love life.
Omari and Jae Hardwick eventually had children together. Jae also had a background in communications and entertainment and even worked in NBC's Primetime Entertainment Publicity Department. Even though their fans and people in the entertainment world were ambivalent about their relationship, they stuck by each other's side.
Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble
Kris Jenner met her boyfriend while attending a fashion designer's birthday party in 2014. However, the two are not exactly overly emotional about each other, especially not in public, and it would seem that Jenner does not have any (immediate) intentions of putting a ring on Gamble’s finger.
But even without PDA and wedding rings, they have maintained a solid romance, which is pretty incredible when you take into consideration that she is 25 years older than him. Not to mention the fact that Gamble does show up on her reality show from time to time - so there's that.
Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy
Emmanuel Macron isn't the only French leader whom people have scrutinized for his relationship. Italian-French singer Carla Bruni has decidedly mesmerized former French President, Nicola Sarkozy. They met at a dinner party in 2007. Sarkozy was Bruni’s first husband, while she was his third wife.
It is rumored that the president is actually quite sensitive about their height difference, yet he has not let that stop him from marrying her. Still, whenever they visit other states, Bruni wears flats. It's all not much of a secret that Sarkozy wears heeled shoes to try to square up with his wife’s height.
Mel Gibson and Rosalind Ross
Gibson has many children, 7 of which are with his first wife, Robyn Denise Moore. But after that 26-year-long marriage came to an end, Mel Gibson found love again in the form of 28-year-old writer, Rosalind Ross.
Gibson and Ross first met back in 2014, when the writer was signed to work for the actor’s production company. They hit it off immediately and Rosalind fell head over heels for the Hollywood legend. Gibson is an entire 35 years senior to his current partner, but they couldn’t be happier – even if she is 10 years younger than his oldest kid.
Bruce Willis and Emma Heming
You may remember that Bruce Willis's most infamous romantic relationship was his 12-year marriage to actress Demi Moore. The two stars had three daughters together before ending things in 2000. Nine years later, Willis said “I do,” to his new wife, model Emma Heming.
Willis is 22 years older than his current wife, but that shouldn’t come as a shocker since his former wife was 15 years younger than him, too. Over the last few years, Willis has unfortunately had to call time on his acting career in light of his recent health issues. But Emma has been there by his side, every step of the way.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is an English model that is best known for gracing the runways of Victoria’s Secret fashion shows, along with the covers of multiple international fashion magazines, including Vogue and GQ. Hunky husband Jason Statham, also from England, is well-known for playing the scruffy, angry antihero type in a variety of films, like "Crank" and 'The Transporter" movies.
So that in itself makes this couple quite odd already. But then consider the age gap. The actor and Huntington-Whitely have a 20-year age gap. She's also taller than him but they know how to work with what they have got.
Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson
Jodie Turner-Smith says that Joshua Jackson loves that she is obsessed with him. She watches videos of the “Dawson’s Creek” actor whenever they are apart. Yet their blissful true love story has not escaped prejudice. Turner-Smith said she was actually shocked at the reactions of some people.
It came from within her own community. “In America, interracial dating or marriage is not something that is as accepted,” she said. “I don’t want to give it too much energy. The horrific things that people were saying” taught her to keep things to herself. And they seem to be stronger because of it. As of late 2023, the couple announced their divorce.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
Let us go back to a simpler time — a time full of Juicy Couture velour tracksuits and girls on “The Hills” crying black mascara tears over guys wearing trucker hats unironically. In 2006, “Hills” cast member Heidi Montag began dating (the show's villain) Spencer Pratt — incurring the wrath of every television viewer.
But why did we loathe this couple so much? It seems that Heidi broke the ultimate girl code rule in pursuit of Spencer — she chose him over her BFF Lauren Conrad. Despite many televised arguments and countless tabloid articles surfacing, the early 2000s least-liked couple is still together.
Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink
Thanks to the popularity of “Grey’s Anatomy,” the world wanted to know who was the lucky Mrs. McDreamy. It turns out that while Patrick Dempsey is a huge star in film and television, his wife is better known off the screen - making them quite the odd couple.
Patrick Dempsey met Jillian Fink, a makeup artist and hairstylist to the stars when he stopped by her salon. After marrying in 1999, the couple went through a rough spot in 2015 when they announced their separation. Much to the surprise of everyone, they called off their divorce and are still happily married today.
Mo’Nique and Sidney Hicks
In 2006 actress and comedian Mo’Nique sent the gossip mill into overdrive when she revealed that she and her husband, Sidney Hicks, were in an open relationship. Mo’Nique revealed to "Essence" magazine that the idea was hers, contrary to what many people assumed.
Her controversial relationship has often made her the subject of many jokes. But all that criticism simply does not matter to the couple. Sidney stated that the change in their status would not “change the dynamic of our relationship.” The two even launched their own podcast about the subject called “Open Relationship.” So they are very proud of their situation.
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra
When Nick Jonas slid into Priyanka Chopra’s DMs, he had no idea their relationship would cause so much commotion. The pop star fell for the “Quantico” star and former "Miss World," despite Priyanka being about a decade older. Their age gap quickly made them a target for countless internet trolls and comedians.
Though the criticism did not stop the couple from tying the knot and starting a family, Priyanka does not understand why when it is an older man and younger woman no one cares and that “actually people like it.” She is unfortunately right it seems - because we most certainly do care!
David Foster and Katharine McPhee
From "American Idol" to the small screen, few predicted the success of “Smash” actress Katharine McPhee. Even fewer would have predicted that she would be married to musician David Foster — a man more than 30 years older than her! It seems that he just ditched Yolanda Hadid for someone much younger!
But it turns out that their relationship goes back, like, way back. David mentored Katharine on “American Idol,'' and even performed at her first wedding! Between their age gap and David’s multiple ex-wives, few thought they would last. This surprising couple, however, has proved everyone wrong by not only still being married but even welcoming a child together!
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
It’s not just male celebrities who fall in love with less famous spouses. In 2005, Jessica Alba met her future-husband Cash Warren when he was working as a director’s assistant on her superhero movie, “Fantastic Four," and the rest as they say, was history.
While that movie bombed, their relationship didn’t. The two began dating and later tied the knot. Many people were surprised that Jessica would date a non-celebrity person considering how famous she is. Not only that, but she often topped the lists of Hollywood’s most desirable women. The two have proved everyone wrong with their long-running marriage and beautiful family.
Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley
You would think that with so many groupies and video vixens around him, rocker Jon Bon Jovi would be linked to an equally famous woman, but you’d be wrong. It turns out that he only has eyes for his wife of more than 30 years, Dorothea Hurley.
Dorothea and Jon met when the two were just teens in New Jersey. Though Jon’s career has taken him far away from the Garden State, the two are inseparable. Safe to say, Dorothea definitely doesn’t “give love a bad name!” But as far as Jon is concerned, it's his life, and it's now or never. So why not put all of his love into this relationship?
Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar
“Seinfeld” may have been a “show about nothing,” but Jerry Seinfeld’s romance with Jessica Sklar definitely is something. The two met at a Manhattan gym in 1998. And the two have been inseparable ever since. We imagine Jessica fell in love with Jerry's humor.
Though sparks flew, there was one problem — Jessica was actually married! She soon divorced her husband and married the comedian a year later. Though her ex-husband told media outlets that the couple had “no respect for decent values” (ouch!) that didn’t put an end to their controversial love story. The pair have been married for more than two decades.
Julia Roberts and Danny Moder
We think we know the secret behind Julia Roberts’ signature megawatt smile — it is her happy relationship with cinematographer Danny Moder. As one of the biggest stars in the world, many wondered who Julia would settle down with. After dating some of the most famous actors, Julia decided to date a lesser-known person in entertainment.
She met Danny Moder on the set of her movie "The Mexican,'' and the pair tied the knot in 2002, much to the surprise of the entertainment world. The couple must be doing something right because they have been married for more than 20 years! Wow!
Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa
Talk about a vacation to remember! When Danielle Deleasa met Kevin Jonas on a trip to the Bahamas, the New Jersey natives instantly clicked. The former hairdresser had no idea that Kevin’s band, The Jonas Brothers, would become the pop phenomenon they are today. But it's a good job she had faith in the young man.
As their fame grew, Danielle began to experience the pitfalls of dating a teen heartthrob. She was subjected to online vitriol directed at her by both trolls and Jonas Brothers superfans. Thankfully, she has shrugged off the criticism and is still happily married to the oldest Jo-bro.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
The fact that ska-rocker Gwen Stefani would get together with country crooner Blake Shelton was shocking enough, but rumors that they began hooking up while he was still married were even harder to believe. After all, she had already had a pretty dramatic personal life.
When Blake and his then-wife Miranda Lambert ended their marriage in 2015, the celebrity gossip world immediately suspected that Blake’s co-host on “The Voice,” Gwen, had something to do with it. The couple also went public after Blake’s divorce — strange timing if you ask us. Though Blake and Gwen eventually married, the couple still faced controversy given their timing.
Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal
When "The Good Wife" actress Julianna Margulies stepped out with now-husband Keith Lieberthal, the paparazzi wondered who the dashing man on her arm was. Though he has movie star good looks, Keith is actually a lawyer. But no one would suspect otherwise - they look like a true Hollywood couple.
Julianna met the lawyer at a dinner party and the two married in 2007. With a considerable age gap between them and Keith’s appearance, many critics have commented on their relationship. She is quick to tell critics that he is more than just a pretty face saying “he is unbelievably bright and smart and went to Harvard Law.”
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger
When Chris Pratt and comedic actress Anna Faris announced their separation, it is safe to say that the internet lost it. Fans had placed so much hope in the adorably hilarious couple and were shocked to see that it didn’t work. And they were also shocked how fast he moved on.
Fans even speculated that Chris left Anna after getting more famous (and buff!). While we’ll never know exactly what happened in their relationship, many fans have had trouble accepting his new marriage to Katherine Schwarzenegger (yes, Arnold’s little girl). Despite the frequent criticism directed at the new couple, they seem to be happily married.
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell may make the right calls as a judge on reality television shows, but behind the scenes, he doesn’t always use his best judgment. In 2013, the "X Factor" judge was dating celebrity Carmen Electra - and surely enough, it didn't work.
Though that union was unexpected enough, things got stranger when Carmen found Simon and now-fiancée Lauren Silverman in a rather compromising position. There was also the issue that Lauren was married to Simon’s good friend, Andrew Silverman. Though the couple got off to a controversial start, Simon has continued his relationship with Lauren and even has a child with her.
Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr
Country music is full of lovelorn partners and heartbreak, but that was nothing compared to what happened between country music star Jason Aldean and former cheerleader Brittany Kerr. Jason was still married to his ex-wife, Jessica Ussery when pictures of him locking lips with Brittany at a nightclub hit the tabloids.
Though Jason apologized and tried to make it work with Jessica, the couple separated a year later. Fans were shocked when Jason continued seeing Brittany, even marrying her in 2015. While the couple has gradually been accepted, many still haven’t forgotten their controversial start. They're still going strong though.
Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed
When it comes to navigating friendships and relationships, most people abide by the code “don’t date your friend’s ex.” "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed obviously didn’t get that memo when she began dating actor Ian Somerhalder, the ex of her best friend, actress Nina Dobrev. The two married just months after Nikki’s divorce from her first husband was finalized.
Some believe that Nina left “The Vampire Diaries” (the show that she and Ian starred in together) because of Ian and Nikki’s relationship. Though the couple insists that the three are friends, many fans still find their whole relationship questionable. Talk about a vampy love triangle!
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
There was no shortage of tears from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez fans when the pop star announced his marriage to model Hailey Bieber. Given their tumultuous dating history, and Justin’s habit of running back to ex Selena whenever times got tough, many Jelena fans thought they would see their favorite couple rise once again.
Unfortunately for them, Justin and Hailey tied the knot in 2018, which was bound to send shockwaves across the celebrity entertainment world and beyond. Despite this, the couple seems happier than ever, aside from the occasional trolling that Hailey still receives from diehard "Jelena" fans.
Tilda Swinton and Sandro Kopp
Tilda Swinton is known for her unique look and unforgettable on-screen characters, but it turns out that her private life is just as fascinating. Tilda’s partner is Sandro Kopp, a German artist almost 20 years her junior. The actress is also surprisingly close with her first husband, John Byrne.
The three have become so close that many people wonder if they are in some sort of “throuple” relationship. Despite the salacious rumors, Tilda calls her relationship with the two men “quite boring really” and that “life doesn’t have to be complicated.” We agree, Tilda! Though we wouldn't put it past her.
Sam Hunt and Hannah Lee Fowler
Fans of country music know that Sam Hunt knows how to write an amazing love song, but in real life, his relationships have been less than a fairytale. In early 2022, the “Body Like a Back Road” singer shocked fans when his wife, Hannah Lee Fowler filed for divorce.
Hannah Lee Fowler claimed that Sam’s behavior (which was less than faithful, apparently) was the main reason for wanting to separate. Shortly after filing for a divorce, the two surprised everyone by deciding to reconcile. The country couple has since welcomed a daughter, proving there is more to their love story.
Victoria Beckham and David Beckham
We know what you’re probably thinking, Posh and Becks have been #CouplesGoals since the two got together in the late ‘90s. While the former Spice Girl and the soccer sensation have been together for more than two decades, their relationship hasn’t always been smooth.
Since they began dating, there have been rumors of David’s infidelity. The British tabloids pounced on the couple after Rebecca Loos, David’s former PA, revealed that the two had an affair. Thankfully, those claims are now behind the couple and they seem stronger than ever! These days, David and Posh are enjoying going on double dates in Miami with Lionel Messi and his wife.
Dominic West and Catherine Fitzgerald
His character Jimmy McNulty may have gotten into risky business in the police drama “The Wire,” but it seems that actor Dominic West likes to get into risky situations off-screen as well. Not to mention the fact that he was also the lead in the show "The Affair."
In 2020, the actor was photographed getting cozy with actress Lily James in Italy. The problem? Dominic is married, and his Roman rendezvous did not seem that platonic. Celebrity gossip outlets broadcasted the scandalous pictures, resulting in Dominic and his wife giving a statement simply stating “Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together.” Fans hope it’s true!
JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers
While many people tune into reality television shows like “The Bachelorette” for the love story, most of us are just there for the drama. Many will remember JoJo Fletcher as the star of season 12. And her relationship with suitor-turned-husband Jordan Rodgers has been filled with drama since the show aired.
From rumors of Jordan joining the show for fame (it is a reality show after all) to allegations of misbehavior, it seemed that everyone had something to say. Today, the couple tunes out the criticism thrown their way and are enjoying their marriage as a normal couple, “not characters on a show.”
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
While Hollywood is full of unhealthy relationships, there are some couples who remind us that true love is real, even if it comes in a less-than-traditional form. Iconic actress Goldie Hawn has been with her partner, actor Kurt Russell for several decades. And yet, the couple have never tied the knot.
Despite never getting married (and being criticized for it), the couple continues to have one of the most beautiful and enviable relationships in show business. Goldie has often defended their decision not to wed by saying that the couple “like the choice” of staying together versus being “bound.” They’re clearly doing something right!
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian
The Lifetime television network might not be known for their steamy movies, but LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian who starred opposite one another in Lifetime's "Northern Lights" sure brought the heat when they were caught canoodling off-screen.
The gossip world was sent into a frenzy when pictures emerged of the two getting cozy together, even though they were both married to other people. Yes that's right, they both cheated, and jumped ship as a result. Though LeAnn and Eddie both separated from their previous partners and are married today, there are still many who do not approve of their relationship or its scandalous start.
Rita Ora and Taika Waititi
In 2021, singer Rita Ora had the entire internet abuzz when pictures emerged of her and her boyfriend, director Taika Waititi, getting very personal with actress Tessa Thompson. The fact that they already looked like a bit of an odd couple was enough for the internet to go while. And then that happened.
The celebrity gossip mill ran overtime trying to understand why the three were photographed in an intimate way, with allegations that the three were involved in some sort of “throuple.” Though the pair hasn’t commented on Tessa's role in their unique relationship, Rita and Taika have since got very serious - so much so that they tied the knot!
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Let's be honest, the past few years have given us situations that we never could have imagined happening. In 2022, we checked another thing off our “things we never thought would happen” checklist when the rise of Bennifer 2.0 emerged from the woodwork.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck famously dated in the early 2000s before calling it quits after allegations that Ben was unfaithful. Surprisingly, after almost two decades apart, the two rekindled their relationship and are now engaged for the second time, proving anything is truly possible! It's difficult for us to keep up with these two! Let's just hope they don't make "Gigli 2" anytime soon.
Cardi B and Offset
Cardi B typically makes waves due to her bold lyrics and social media posts, but one part of her life typically makes the tabloids — her relationship with rapper Offset. The hip-hop power couple tied the knot in 2017 and welcomed a daughter not too long after.
But their road to marriage was filled (and continues to be filled) with ups and downs. Shortly after getting married, Cardi announced, then called off, the couple’s divorce. Allegations that Offset was unfaithful to the “Bodak Yellow” singer have made her fans question their relationship. In many ways though, they are one of rap's power couples.
Nicolas Cage and Riko Shibata
Nicolas Cage has long made the news for a variety of reasons. And this also applies when it comes to his personal relationships. The “National Treasure” actor has been married multiple times to everyone from famous actresses to waitresses. In 2021, Nicolas shocked the world once again when he and his fifth wife, Riko Shibata got married in Las Vegas.
What was shocking, however, was that the two have 30 years between them! Nicolas was already a film star before his wife had even been born! The actor met his Japanese wife while he was filming in Japan, and sparks flew.
Britney Spears and Sam Asghari
Britney Spears’ personal relationships have often been so shocking that they’ve often managed to overshadow her career as a pop icon. From Justin Timberlake to quickie Las Vegas weddings, the princess of pop has made some rather interesting dating decisions.
Perhaps that’s why fans were so concerned when Britney revealed that she was dating Sam Asghari, a model she met on the set of her music video for the single “Slumber Party.” Despite their decade-plus age difference and Britney’s poor track record when it comes to marriage, the two eventually tied the knot. However, they have since gone their separate ways.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
It is hard to believe that Kylie Jenner is no longer just the shy teenager who started off appearing in the early seasons of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Like her siblings, the makeup mogul has made some questionable decisions when it comes to relationships.
In late 2018, she had tongues wagging when she began dating rapper Travis Scott. It was not long into their relationship when the rapper was hit with allegations that he was unfaithful to the celebrity. Since then, they have divided fans with their on-and-off relationship status but seem to be making it work … for now!
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union may seem like they have the perfect relationship, but that was not always the case - by any means. The basketball player shocked the gossip world when it was revealed that he had fathered a child a little over a week after proposing to Gabrielle!
Though many criticized his behavior, the “Bring It On” star stayed with him and the two tied the knot just a year later. Though she admits that they were not “in a good place in our relationship” during that period, they have worked hard to have the relationship they have today.
David Boreanaz and Jaime Bergman
You surely know this guy from "Buffy and the Vampire Slayer." If not, where have you been for the last 25 years? Fans of the “Bones'' actor, David Boreanaz, were surprised when the usually private actor became involved in a major romantic scandal involving golfer Tiger Woods’s mistress Rachel Uchitel.
When the allegations spread, David admitted that he had been unfaithful to his wife of more than a decade, Jaime Bergman. Though the couple has stayed together, they were both subject to widespread criticism regarding his behavior which he referred to as a “bonding experience.” We’re not sure his wife agrees!
Morena Baccarin and Ben McKenzie
Actor Ben McKenzie knows a thing or two about getting involved in messy situations given his role as Ryan Atwood in the teen drama “The O.C.,” but that was nothing compared to the drama regarding his relationship with actress Morena Baccarin. In real life, this talented actress isn't cursed with the "crazy eyes" at all.
Ben and Morena met on the set of the show "Gotham." Things clicked between the two and they soon announced they were expecting, just one issue remained: Morena was technically still married. Morena filed for divorce and is now married to Ben. The whole affair, while resolved, still rubbed fans the wrong way.
Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie
Getting it right when it comes to love and relationships can be tough. So tough that it apparently took three marriages before actor Dennis Quaid found his soulmate, Laura Savoie. Of course, many know that he was married once to Meg Ryan. But that didn't exactly pan out well.
The actor met the student at a business event. Despite their almost 40-year age gap, he says he “didn’t go out looking for an age gap” when he met the blonde student. Dennis acknowledges that while many have a problem with Laura’s age, it isn’t an issue for them. In fact, he thinks there’s “something timeless about us.”Let’s hope the fourth time's the charm!
Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most important figures in the entertainment industry - it's safe to say. While she has often been open about her life, there is one person she keeps private — her longtime partner, Stedman Graham.
Though the couple has been going strong since 1986, they haven’t been immune to criticism calling for the couple to make it official. The couple, who got engaged in 1992, has famously put off their wedding to the point where they’ve just accepted being together without being married. Oprah believes that had they tied the knot, they “would not be together today.”
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's whirlwind romance may seem like it happened overnight, but the truth is that this unexpected punk couple goes way back. In 2018, the reality star and the Blink-182 drummer were spotted out and about in Los Angeles but never confirmed their relationship.
Then, in 2021, the couple was everywhere. From frisky vacation paparazzi pics to flirty messages on social media, these two took PDA to the next level. The couple, who seemed to be unable to take a picture without kissing, made it official in 2022 when they exchanged vows in Italy. They are arguably entertainment's power couple.
Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi and Jionni LaValle
Years ago, few of us would associate any of the “Jersey Shore” cast members with being marriage material. We think that's safe to say. But in 2014, Nicole "Snookie" Polizzi took a break from stumbling out of clubs and applying fake tan to tie the knot with New Jersey native Jionni.
Sure the couple had some “made for reality television”-style fights early on in their relationship, but the pair have actually defied all odds to continue to be married. They’ve even started a family of their own! No word on if the children have learned what GTL means (Gym, Tan, Laundry).
Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead
After meeting on the set of the show “Fargo,” actor Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead knew that they had a connection that could not be denied. The problem? Both were married to long-time partners. This didn't stop them though from starting a rumored forbidden romance.
Though the couple never admitted to beginning their relationship while still married, it did seem suspicious that shortly after meeting both called it quits with their respective partners. Fans were even more shocked when the actor thanked both Mary and his ex-wife in the same speech after winning a Golden Globe for his role in "Fargo." Awkward!
King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles
In what was one of the biggest scandals to emerge from the Royal Family, the world was left speechless after the late Princess Diana referred to there being “three” people in her marriage. But who was the third? Charles’ former girlfriend, Camilla Parker Bowles, of course.
After that explosive interview, Camilla became one of the most divisive women in the world. After Diana’s untimely passing and the reinstatement of Charles and Camilla’s relationship, the public did not know what to think. Though the two have faced much criticism, they are still together - and she is now the Queen Consort.
Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys
Sometimes, life has a funny way of imitating art. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys may have played Russian spies living a double life, but many in the gossip world speculated that the two actors were involved in duplicitous behaviors of their own, off-screen. Shortly after landing a role on “The Americans,” she and her husband called it quits.
Suspiciously, not long after, she began dating her co-star and husband on the show, Matthew Rhys. Though anyone watching the show could see that these two had incredible chemistry, the two have rejected assumptions that they began dating when they were both in relationships.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady
Supermodel Gisele Bündchen and superstar quarterback Tom Brady have one of the most enviable marriages in Hollywood, but it wasn’t always that way. When they began dating in 2006, they were faced with what Gisele called a “very challenging situation” — Tom’s ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child.
At the time, gossip magazines questioned the timing of Tom and Gisele’s relationship. Today, however, the photogenic duo has patched things up with Bridget and went on to become one of the most surprising celeb marriages out there. With that said, Brady and Bundchen have since gone their separate ways.
Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist
If you have ever wondered where your prince charming is, he is probably at a Swedish nightclub. At least that is where Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden was when he met former waitress and reality television starlet Sofia Hellqvist.
The Swedish public was shocked by their scandalous “how we met” story, and by Sofia’s appearance on the Swedish reality show “Paradise Hotel” where she got frisky with adult actress Jenna Jameson, believe it or not! Though Prince Carl acknowledges that she was “hung out to dry” by the media, the two have become one of the most loved royal couples in the world.
Ice-T and Coco Austin
Ice-T and model Coco Austin may seem like complete opposites, but they are actually very similar. The rapper ended up smoothly transitioning into acting, and explains that behind the public’s perception of them, he and his wife are actually a “normal couple with a normal relationship.”
Though many still associate the rapper with crime and controversy, and Coco with playing up the “dumb blonde,” the two actually have one of the longest-lasting relationships in entertainment, believe it or not. The seemingly mismatched couple got to show the world their true (and surprisingly adorable) relationship on their reality television show, “Ice Loves Coco.”
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
It can be said that the public is willing to put up with a lot when it comes to gossip related to dysfunctional Hollywood marriages, but many believe that the antics of Tori Spelling and actor Dean McDermott have pushed it too far. And we will break down why that might be the case.
The two shocked the celebrity gossip world when it was revealed that they engaged in an affair after meeting on the set of “Mind Over Murder,” a made-for-television movie. After separating from their respective partners, the two married. Despite their relationship being highly criticized, Tori vowed to “make this work.”
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick have had a rather interesting marriage. Following their nuptials in 1997, there have been allegations of Matthew being unfaithful, and of the couple practically living separate lives as Matthew is usually working on Broadway while his wife works in film and television.
Then there was the awkward 2004 Emmys speech where the “Sex and the City” actress forgot to thank her husband, despite mentioning dozens of cast members. Whoops! Despite the media frequently predicting the demise of their marriage, the couple is still going strong. And ultimately, we love this couple - so there's that.
Ethan Hawke and Ryan Shawhughes
Celebrities having affairs with nannies is unfortunately an all-too-common occurrence in Hollywood. And this exact phenomenon happened in the Hawke-Thurman household back in the day. When actor Ethan Hawke’s relationship with “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman ended in 2003, tabloids were quick to point the finger at their former nanny, Ryan Shawhughes.
Though the couple adamantly denied any foul play, few were convinced. Ethan even claimed, "my [first] marriage disintegrated due to many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan." The criticism hasn’t stopped Ethan and Ryan from tying the knot and starting a family of their own.
Dane Cook and Kelsi Taylor
When Dane Cook revealed that he was getting serious with his girlfriend Kelsi Taylor, many people thought it was a joke. At almost three decades his junior, fans were beyond surprised. People had thought that Dane had gone too far. Even an audible laugh occurred when he mentioned their age difference on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Naturally, their large age gap has brought about a lot of criticism. But in typical Dane form, the comedian jokes, "Sometimes I actually find myself saying, ‘Where has she been all my life?’ and then I realize she wasn’t alive for the first 26 years of it."
Marc Anthony and Nadia Ferreira
We have got to hand it to Marc Anthony — the man has dated some of the most beautiful women in showbiz over the years! He also seems to have a type. Basically, he loves himself some beauty queens! Before marrying J.Lo, Marc was married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres.
Today, he is engaged to former Miss Universe Paraguay, Nadia Ferreira. Despite the nearly three decades between them (seriously!) Marc seems to be smitten. Though the critics have been quite ruthless when it comes to accepting Marc’s new and much younger woman, the happy couple does not seem to mind!
