It seems like every day we hear about a celebrity couple who were so much in love just last week yet now breaking up and calling it quits. No one really knows why celebrity relationships seem to be doomed from the get-go, it could be the hectic schedules that they are faced with or the fact that they never have any privacy. But there are some couples out there who have been able to overcome the odds and make their relationships last for quite some time. Here are a few of Hollywood most famous couples who are still making it work.
Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson
Tom Hanks once told Oprah “I’m a lucky man. Rita could have done better, but, you know every now and again, you win the lottery.” The lovely couple has been married since 1988 and seem to be as much in love today as they were 28 years ago.
Elton John & David Furnish
Singer Elton John met filmmaker David Furnish in 1993 and the pair were one of the first couples to form a civil partnership when it was officially legal in 2005. The couple now have two surrogate sons, Zachary and Elijah and they show no signs of separating any time soon. They are completely dedicated to each other and to their family.
Meryl Streep & Don Gummer
Meryl Streep looked outside the box of traditional actors marrying other actors and got married to a sculptor instead. In 1978 she got married to artist Don Gummer who prefers to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible, which typically works for many celebrity couples. The pair have four children together.
Oprah Winfrey & Stedman Graham
While it may be hard to believe that the media mogul has any time for a steady relationship, former talk show host Oprah Winfrey has been with author and successful businessman Stedman Graham ever since 1986. Very Impressive!
Gary Barlow & Dawn Andrews
While the former member of boyband Take That, Gary Barlow appears on the X-Factor each week and has made a name for himself on the popular talent show, his better half Dawn Andrew tends to stay out of the public eye. The couple met when Dawn was a dancer on Take That’s 1995 Nobody Else tour and the pair have been together ever since then.
Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo
Amy Adams met Darren Le Gallo long before she found fame as an actress and was featured in various films including Man of Steel. The couple met in 2001 in an acting class. Darren is also an artist and rally car driver. He has appeared in the TV series Six Feet Under and the feature Film Date Night.
Julia Roberts & Daniel Moder
Julia Roberts surprised everyone when she married cameraman Daniel Moder. The couple first met when she was working on the set of the film The Mexican. At that time, she was dating Benjamin Bratt and Modor was married. 12 years later the couple decided to get married and now they have three children together. When Julia is not busy promoting her hit movies she enjoys spending time with her family out of the spotlight.
Michelle Pfieffer & David E. Kelley
Actress Michelle Pfieffer met the TV producer David E. Kelley on a blind date and they were married just ten months later in November of 1993.
David & Victoria Beckham
Known as one of the most popular and fashionable couples in the UK, David Beckham and Victoria Adams aka Posh Spice started dating in 1997. And although there has been rumors of infidelity with the couple constantly in the spotlight, it hasn’t cause any issues with the unofficial royal couple. The pair have four children together, sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz as well as a daughter named Harper.
Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas
When Catherine Zeta-Jones met Michael Douglas who is 25 years older than she is, he wooed her by saying “I’d like to father your children.” The couple got married in 2000 and they have been through many difficult times including Michael’s throat cancer and a brief separation in 2013, but they have managed to stay together. Michael’s pick up line seemed to pay off since the couple has two children together, Dylan Michael Douglas and Carys Zeta Douglas.
