Famous Celebrity Couples
Hollywood is known to have couples who hook up and barely last long enough before you can say “showbiz”. But every once in a while, there comes a couple who actually know how to work on a relationship as hard as they work on their careers. These famous celebrity couples have stood the test of time and don’t seem to be heading to Splitsville any time soon.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Happily married since 2005, Ben and Jennifer met in 2003 and began to date in 2004. Now with 3 kids and amazing careers to boot, they certainly are doing just fine. Ben even gave a heartwarming thank-you to his wife during his Oscar speech for Best Picture for Argo. Jennifer, of course, feels the same way. “He knows when to swoop in with the gesture. He’s sweet that way. Honestly, I would do anything for that man, because I know it’s not taken for granted,” she says.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are literally making sweet music together and have been dating since 2002. Despite their superstardom, they’ve managed to stay private when it comes to their relationship. “What Jay and I have is real,” says Beyoncé. “It’s not about interviews or getting the right photo op. It’s real.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
In famous celebrity couples, relationships that start on set rarely ever last, but when Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer, they knew there was something there. The movie was in 1997, but in 2000, the couple started dated and then finally got married in 2002. In 2007, Sarah took the great leap by switching her name to Sarah Michelle Prinze.
David and Victoria Beckham
Together since 1997, David and Victoria Beckham are everyone’s favorite of all famous celebrity couples. Victoria was a Spice Girls superstar who went to a charity football match and met her mate there. “I didn’t really know who he was,” she recounts. “I was never into football.” But all that was about to change when they got engaged one year later, and have both never looked back. Now with 3 children and still as happily in love as ever, they continue to prove that love truly does exist even in Tinseltown.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
The obvious winners in this list are Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, who have been married blissfully since 1988. “I’m not one to suck up to the audience, but the only thing we ever argue about is who loves each other more,” says Tom Hanks during an interview on having just celebrated their 25th anniversary. Thanks to their movie Volunteers where they both met, they are an inspiration to all couples everywhere. “I have been blessed beyond deserving. Since 1988, I have been happy in the warm embrace of a big, fat Greek family. I’m here because of my wife, Rita Wilson,” Tom Hanks says proudly. “She is the motivation of my best work. I wish everyone could share their life with as good a friend, a passionate lover, as close a partner, and as beautiful a woman as I have been able to with the mate of my soul, Rita Wilson.”
