Hollywood marriages are notoriously short-lived due to difficult characters, self-centered natures, and frequent trips. Still, there are star couples who happily live together for many years and aren’t going to get divorced. Let’s see the top 5 long-lasting marriages of celebrities.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
This couple is considered one of the most beautiful partnerships. They got married in 2000. In 2013, after a brief separation, Catherine and Michael managed to fix their relationship and kept on living together, showing a shining example of how important it’s to fight with all your might to keep your family together. The actors, who have endured many hardships, including several years battling Michael’s throat cancer and bipolar personality disorder, from which Catherine was treated, have two children — Dylan and Caris.
Milla Jovovich and Paul Anderson
Like many couples in Hollywood, the actress and director met on the set of a movie. The fateful meeting between Jovovich and Anderson happened at the shoot of the first part of “Resident Evil.” Anderson took a chance and picked up one of the most talented and cute Ukrainian women for marriage. In 2003, Paul proposed to Milla, but the couple delayed the wedding for several years and got married in 2009. But now, Jovovich is grateful to the franchise for many things, including marriage and motherhood.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
The union of these two Hollywood celebrities was formed at the beginning of the actors’ career in the early 1990s. After a previous failed relationship, the young people helped each other out of depression and believe in love again. Sarah and Matthew made their relationship official in 1997, and now they are raising a son and two twin daughters born with the help of a surrogate mother. The actors support each other both at home and at their movie premieres.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
Tom and Rita have been married since 1988. The “Forrest Gump” star embraced orthodoxy to marry his sweetheart, and he has never regretted it. They have two sons — Truman and Chester. The couple is a model of the perfect family. Like everyone, Hanks and Wilson can have some rough patches, but nothing seems to be able to break this union.
Samuel L. Jackson and LaTanya Richardson
Samuel L. Jackson grew up without a father. He promised himself that his children would grow up in a family with both parents. When they were in neighboring colleges, Jackson met his future wife, and their marriage in 1980 has survived every possible test. From Jackson’s career troubles to the actor’s addiction to heroin. After the daughter’s birth in 1982, LaTanya focused on taking care of Zoe, but now she has a pretty impressive filmography.
Go through life together hand in hand, overcome adversity, forgive mistakes, share their happiest moments and keep a warm relationship with each other. Contrary to the opinion that star marriages do not last, they have proven that it is possible.
