Celebrity wives have a much bigger role than just looking gorgeous on the red carpet – they play an inseparable part of their famous husbands’ success. In an era where people have become more and more cynical about love and the concept of “forever after,” it’s nice to see some of our favorite celebrity couples still going strong.
On the other hand, some of these couples gave us some great times and then broke our hearts by separating. Thankfully, we’ll always have snaps of these spectacular couples from their heydays.
Dustin Hoffman – Lisa Hoffman | Then
Dustin Hoffman rose to fame when he starred on The Graduate, and he hasn’t stopped landing groundbreaking roles since then. Hoffman was first married to Anne Byrne.
But the two divorced in 1980, and that same year he married his second wife, Lisa whom he settled in Manhattan with and enjoyed the city life.
Dustin Hoffman – Lisa Hoffman | Now
Dustin and Lisa are still together after more than 35 years, and seem to be more in love than ever. The couple has four children, two boys and two girls and Lisa is the stepmom to Dustin’s two other daughters from his first marriage.
Their happy marriage proves that that every ending has a new and sometimes an even more lovely beginning.
Jack Nicholson – Sandra Knight | Then
As surprising as it may sound, Sandra was Jack’s first and only wife. The two tied the knot in 1962 and had one child together, Lisa who is 52 today.
Jack always considered children to be the most important thing in his life as he was quoted saying, “as a father I’m there all the time. I give unconditional love. And I have a lot of skills in terms of getting them to express themselves.”
Jack Nicholson – Sandra Knight | Now
Jack and Sandra separated after four years of marriage. Jack who has always known to have his way with the ladies and draw them to him, has never remarried.
He has been, however, linked to fellow actresses such as Anjelica Huston and Rebecca Broussard, whom he also shares children with. These days, Sandra is focusing her career on writing rather than on acting.
Warren Beatty – Annette Bening | Then
The actor, who was once known to be the ladies man and with the reputation of being the ultimate Hollywood bachelor, decided to settle down in his 50’s when he met Annette Bening who seemed to have stolen his heart and pretty much dismissed all those rumors that were running around.
One of those rumors has it that the Carly Simon song, You’re So Vain was actually referring to the actor himself. The couple who met on the set of Bugsy in the beginning of the 90’s, tied the knot in 1992.
Warren Beatty – Annette Bening | Now
After 25 years of marriage and against all Hollywood odds, Warren Beatty and Annette Bening are still going strong. The couple share four children and are still hitting the red carpets looking more beautiful and happier than ever. One of their children, Stephen, is a transgender and a very honest activist for the community.
Stephen, who was once Kathlyn before the sex change, is a Sarah Lawrence College student in New York. The actor was quoted earlier this year saying “The most important thing that’s ever happened — the best thing that’s ever happened to me — was Annette and having four kids.”
Paul Newman – Joanne Woodward | Then
The Oscar winner met his second wife, Joanne, after he ended his marriage to Jackie Witte that lasted 11 years. The two met in 1953 and later shared their talents on the set of The Long Hot Summer.
Indeed it was a very long and hot summer as the two married a year later. Paul was one of the hottest actors in his time, so we can only imagine the pressure on Joanne’s part of holding on to that one.
Paul Newman – Joanne Woodward | Now
The couple was considered one of the strongest power couples after their marriage lasted for 50 years until Paul sadly passed away in 2008. Paul and Joanne share three children, apart from the three kids that Paul has from his previous marriage.
The couple is probably one of the favorite Hollywood couples in history as they really have been inseparable since the co starred in 1958. Their 50 year bond is a true romantic one and now that Joanne is sadly dealing with the Alzheimer’s disease, she slowly starts to forget all those beautiful memories.
Clint Eastwood – Maggie Johnson | Then
What started as a blind date soon turned into marriage, when the actor and director, Eastwood married model Margaret Maggie Johnson in 1953 when he was only 23 years old.
But the marriage between one of the more gorgeous men in Hollywood’s history, and his new wife, did not go all smooth and apparently looking good together was not enough for the two to stay together.
Clint Eastwood – Maggie Johnson | Now
Clint and Maggie’s marriage lasted 31 years and they had two children together, but eventually they separated in 1984. It didn’t come as a huge surprise as Clint was always considered to have a bit of a drifting look when it came to other women always and he even got another woman pregnant while being married to Maggie.
The 84-year-old director and actor married his second wife Dina, but the two split and divorced after 17 years. The two have a daughter together, Morgan. Eastwood has two children with his first wife, Maggie Johnson, Kyle Eastwood and Alison Eastwood.
Elvis Presley – Priscilla Presley | Then
You wouldn’t expect anything but an amazing love story from The King himself. When Elvis met Priscilla in 1959 she was only 14 years old. Elvis always had an eye for young women and simply fell head over heels for the sweet beauty.
The lovebirds dated for seven years before they decided to marry in 1967 and then had had their daughter, Lisa Marie Presley just a few months later. But the marital bliss was not made to last for these two.
Elvis Presley – Priscilla Presley | Now
These two’s love story and how it unfolded is probably one of the more publicized ones and we all know the rest. They divorced in 1973, but remained on pretty good terms and raised little Lisa together.
Then in 1977, Elvis tragically passed away, only four years after the divorce – and left his young daughter without her legendary father by her side. Their daughter Lisa also pursued a career in music, but could never quite live up to her father’s status.
William Shatner – Elizabeth Shatner | Then
The famous Star Trek star is probably mostly remembered by his role as Captain James T. Kirk. While he did stay committed to the successful franchise, his married life was somewhat more dynamic with no less than four marriages throughout his life. Elizabeth was Shatner’s fourth wife and the two tied the knot back in 2001.
William had barely been single for the previous few decades, as he remarried pretty quickly after each divorce. But perhaps he hoped the fourth time would be the charm.
William Shatner -Elizabeth Shatner | Now
William and Elizabeth is perhaps proof you should never give up on marriage, even if you have failed as many as three times. We guess the number four really is the lucky number, as William and Elizabeth are still going strong.
Despite being married for close to 20 years they are still making public appearances on the red carpet, looking very happy together. Shatner has been quoted in the press saying that the fourth and last time, he made sure to pick right. He sure did.
Michael Douglas – Diandra Luker | Then
Before Douglas married the gorgeous Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, he was married to a woman called Diandra Luker for 23 years. The two however parted ways back in 1995, and as we all know Michale did find love yet again with Catherine.
It definitely seems as if Michael is not afraid of big age gaps when it comes to love, as he married Diandra when she was just 19 and he was 32. The two share a son together named Cameron.
Michael Douglas – Diandra Luker | Now
The couple’s divorce may have left a few broken hearts, but one happy bank account when Diandra walked away with $45 million. That’s a pretty good deal for a newly single lady. And if Diandra had been careful to avoid the spotlight before the dirvorce, she did it even more once she was no longer married to one of Hollywood’s most famous actors.
Douglas famously remarried Catherine Zeta-Jones and the two are still happily married, raising two children together.
Michael Caine – Shakira Caine | Then
Although the Batman actor is now quite recognized for his romantic roles, he sure did manage to be romantic when he married his wife, Shakira, a Guyanese actress in 1973.
The two come from different backgrounds and religions, but that has never been an issue for the couple.
Michael Caine – Shakira Caine | Now
After 43 years of marriage, the two are still happily married and the two time Oscar winner, who is 82 today, tells that the secret to their long and happy marriage is having their own space.
The actor and his wife who is a fashion designer have figured out the code to a happy life together: “The secret of a good marriage is two bathrooms. You never want to share a bathroom with a woman or you end up with a little corner for your shaving things and stuff. I am older than she is and I need more space.”
Robert De Niro – Diahnne Abbott | Then
The Taxi Driver actor married the actress and singer, Diahnne Abbott in 1976 and just by the look on his face you can tell he did not have a care in the world.
The young couple was a couple who sure did know how to party right.
Robert De Niro – Diahnne Abbott | Now
After 12 years of marriage, the two divorced in 1988. De Niro has had quite a few relationships since then, one of them was with model, Toukie Smith.
These days Robert is married to Grace Hightower while Diahnne has led a low key life away from the spotlight.
Sean Penn – Madonna | Then
It was a definite big surprise when these two got hitched in 1985. The stars, each in their own career, were married for four years and pretty much left many heads turning everywhere they went and every red carpet they hit.
Penn and Madonna’s union in marriage is one for the books.
Sean Penn – Madonna | Now
Needless to mention that the two megastars are still very successful in their careers. Penn is acting and directing and had remarried Robin Wright. The two have two children.
Madonna is probably the most successful female artist of all time. She has been married to British director, Guy Ritchie but the two divorced in 2008 after eight years of marriage.
Pierce Brosnan – Keely Shaye Smith | Then
The hunky actor is mostly famous for his roles in The Fourth Protocol, Cold War and Mrs. Doubtfire. Brosnan was married to his first wife. Cassandra Harris, for 11 years, until she sadly passed away.
The actor spoke about his late wife: ‘Cassie was very positive about life. I mean, she had the most amazing energy and outlook on life. It was and is a terrible loss, and I see it reflected, from time to time, in my children.’ Three years after she passed away, Brosnan met Keely Shaye Smith and the two fell in love.
Pierce Brosnan – Keely Shaye Smith | Now
Brosnan and Keely married in 2001 and are still together. While it took some time for the actor to remarry after his former wife’s death, he eventually came to terms with his loss and moved on.
They are a vey active couple when it comes to animal rights and the environment.
Sean Connery – Micheline Roquebrune | Then
The legendary Bond actor met his future (second) wife, Micheline at a golf tournament in Morocco. Micheline, a Moroccan-French painter and the actor married in a secret ceremony in Casablanca in 1975.
They seemed like a very chic couple who just fit each other perfectly when they shared some similar interests and passions. Connery was actually the first actor to ever play the famous secret agent and has starred in seven of the film series, which made him even more attractive to his wife at the time.
Sean Connery – Micheline Roquebrune | Now
Connery was once quoted saying about his wife, “what more could a man want than a beautiful wife who not only understands golf but encourages you to play?” The two are still married and are still looking great.
Sean, who has already retired from acting after a long and prosperous career, is now a devoted grandfather to his cute grandchildren. The legendary actor was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000, a very honorable title which makes us love him even more.
Tiger Woods – Elin Nordegren | Then
Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren became engaged in 2003 after meeting at The Open Championship in 2001 through a mutual friend. The professional golfer and the Swedish model were married in 2004 in Orlando, Florida and bought a property on Jupiter Island the following year.
Tiger and Elin had their first child in 2007, a daughter named Sam. In 2009, just before the couple’s infamous scandal would break out, Elin gave birth to their second child, Charlie Axel.
Tiger Woods – Elin Nordegren | Now
In 2010, Tiger and Elin filed for divorce on the heels of a major public scandal. Tiger’s string of extra-marital affairs made the headline news and Elin reacted in a rather dramatic manner (she swung Tiger’s golf club at him in their driveway, if you can recall).
Although Tiger has been labeled as a “serial cheater,” the pro-golfer and his ex-wife have managed to co-parent their two children in the friendliest of ways. In 2016, Elin graduated with top honors from Rollins College with a degree in psychology and Tiger made his return to the sport he once excelled at. And Elin has definitely moved on, as she is now expecting a baby with her boyfriend of two years, former NFL star Jordan Cameron.
Harrison Ford – Calista Flockhart | Then
Apart from their 22 year gap, the celebrity couple has enjoyed, or not quite, many separation rumors and voices that claimed that their marriage would never last.
The two met in 2002 at the Golden Globe Awards ceremony, and after a long seven year relationship the couple got engaged in 2009 until they finally tied the knot in 2010. Ever since their union there was nothing but PDA for these two lovebirds. Calista is Ford’s third wife. The two adopted their son, Liam in 2011.
Harrison Ford – Calista Flockhart | Now
Calista and Ford are still married and are still attending the red carpet events together looking very much in love. The 74 year old actor has had a very busy year with the Star Wars film: The Force Awakens film.
He was also cast to play in the upcoming film Blade Runner 2049 that is set to be released in 2017. Calista, who is mostly famous for her Ally McBeal role is still starring on the small screen on the series, Supergirl as Cat Grant.
John Travolta – Kelly Preston | Then
In Hollywood there is no better way to meet than on the set of a movie. That was the case for the Grease actor and Kelly Preston who met when they starred on The Experts in 1987.
The two married four years later in two different ceremonies – a legal one and one conducted by their shared faith.
John Travolta – Kelly Preston | Now
The actor couple is still going strong and are staying together despite being in the public eye for all these years. Perhaps what has saved them is their private lifestyle.
John and Kelly had three children together. But their son, Jett, sadly died in 2009 when he was only 16. The two are still happily married and their red carpet moments are priceless.
Johnny Depp – Lori Anne Allison | Then
Having the reputation of a bad boy in Hollywood, it’s hard to imagine Johnny Depp has already settled down for the first time when he was 20 years old.
His first marriage was to Lori Ann Allison in 1983 from whom he divorced from two years later. Lori was a make up artist and we guess they met on a movie set.
Johnny Depp – Lori Anne Allison | Now
As we all know, Depp has been in two very high profile relationships since his divorce from Lori Anne. His first relationship to Vanessa Paradi ended after fourteen years after the couple had two children together. His second infamous marriage was to Amber Heard with whom he is now in the process of a very ugly divorce.
Lori has been under the radar since she divorced Depp, but she did show her support for her ex husband during his publicized divorce from Amber Heard, saying he would never lay a hand on a woman after the actor was accused of domestic violence.
Jeremy Irons – Sinéad Cusck | Then
The British actor who had his big film debut when he starred in the 1981 romantic drama, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, married the Irish actress, Sinéad Cusak in 1978.
The couple has had a very successful career since they met. The two have two sons named Sam and Max. Irons’ first marriage was to Julie Hallam, and so Cusak was actually his second wife.
Jeremy Irons – Sinéad Cusck | Now
It has been 38 years since these two tied the knot, and the long time lovebirds are still happily married. This forever after case cannot be taken for granted in Hollywood.
It’s truly heartwarming to know that there are some still power couples left in Tinsel Town, and that even in this industry filled with non stop cheating scandals, real love does indeed exist.
Anthony Hopkins – Jennifer Leyton | Then
Sir Anthony, the Hannibal star married Jennifer Leyton in 1972 after he split from his first wife, Petronella. The couple used to appear on the red carpet a lot and were a very stable couple throughout the years.
And in fact they never had any children together. Abigail Hopkins is Anthony’s daughter from his first wife.
Anthony Hopkins – Jennifer Leyton | Now
The couple who was once going strong split in 2002 after almost 30 years of marriage after they had been living separately for the last two years of their marriage. The Welsh actor has been romantically linked to many women including Joyce Ingalls and Francine Kay.
Jenni admitted that separating from Hopkins was a very difficult thing to do and she was quoted: “I don’t find it an easy state….If I’ve got any choice, I don’t want a divorce.” After their divorce they went their separate ways, Anthony remarried and moved to LA and Jennifer remained home in the UK.
Bruce Springsteen – Juliana Phillips | Then
Th Born In The USA singer, also nicknamed the Boss, married Juliana in 1985. Phillips was a model and a successful actress back in the day and was famous for her role as Frankie Reed on the television series, Sisters.
The singer and the model were one of the most attractive couples Hollywood has ever known.
Bruce Springsteen – Juliana Phillips | Now
Their romance ended after four years, but the couple did enjoy their celebrity life and had no children together. Phillips was always known for being the “girlfriend of” of the good looking musician.
Their dirty laundry was even mentioned in Bruce’s 1987 Tunnel of Love album where he mentioned a lot of the unhappiness they were experiencing. Phillips sure does look amazing today.
Michael J. Fox – Tracy Pollan | Then
Who knew that co starring on a show named Family Ties would set the stage for forming a real family. Michael and Tracy, who met on the set of the American sitcom back in the 80’s married a few years later.
Tracy actually played Fox’s on screen girlfriend but the two only began dating when they costarred once again on Bright Lights.
Michael J. Fox – Tracy Pollan | Now
Back to the future, the year is 2016 and the good looking couple is still happily married! It seems like there is nothing these two can’t overcome after Tracy has been and still is by her husband’s side through his struggle with Parkinson’s Disease.
The couple has four children and Michael, despite his harsh symptoms, is starring on his show, The Michael J Fox Show.
Jeff Bridges – Susan Geston | Then
The Big Lebowski star and one of Hollywood’s leading men, met Susan Geston in 1974 when he was filming a movie called Rancho Delux. Susan was a waitress where the film was shooting.
It was almost like love at first sight for the two and just five days after Bridges proposed, the two tied the knot in 1977.
Jeff Bridges – Susan Geston | Now
We can’t say we’re surprised to find out that the lovely couple is still together and going strong. They have three daughters and are still looking very much in love. Needless to say that they are both still easy on the eyes.
The Oscar winner even mentioned his lovely wife in his winning speech saying ”I especially want to thank my gorgeous wife, Sue. We’ve been married 33 years. We have a beautiful family, three girls, Isabelle, Jessie and Haley. Thank you guys, I wouldn’t be up here without you.”
Bruce Willis – Demi Moore | Then
Considered one of Hollywood’s most famous couples, Bruce and Demi met when they attended the premiere of Stakeout. The actor couple tied the knot in 1987 and had three daughters together.
The three girls, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah are famous today not just for being the famous couple’s girls. Although the celebrity couple decided to go their separate ways in 2000, they are still very close friends, so close that they were invited to each other’s second weddings.
Bruce Willis – Demi Moore | Now
Demi was actually married once to Freddy Moore in 1980 and so Bruce was her second husband, while Demi was the actor’s first wife. There’s no doubt that these two set a very good example for other celebrity couples who sadly decided to divorce, with the kind and respectful way they treat each other.
Bruce is married these days to model, Emma Hemming. Demi married actor Ashton Kutcher in 2005, and although the pair seemed strong and like another power couple, the two divorced in 2013.
Mel Gibson – Robyn Moore | Then
The Braveheart star did not always have the bad reputation that he is known for today and in fact led a pretty normal family life when he married his actress wife, Robyn Moore in 1980 after the two met after the release of the first Mad Max film in 1977.
When Gibson met Robyn she was a dental nurse an the two have seven kids together. Yes, seven children and that doesn’t include Gibson’s other two kids.
Mel Gibson – Robyn Moore | Now
The Aussie couple has unfortunately gone their separate ways after 31 years and it seems like their long and strong relationship went downhill after Gibson was arrested for drunk driving in 2006.
Although there were hopes for the future for the Hollywood couple, their relationship ended but remained considerably friendly due to the seven kids they share. Robyn reportedly walked out of the long marriage with a whooping fortune of £250 million, just enough to get a fresh start.
Mark Hamill – Marilou York | Then
Mostly recognized for his role as Luke Skywalker, the Star Wars star married dental hygienist, Marilou York in 1978, but the road to saying their I Do’s had known some ups and downs.
The couple has three children. One of their children, Nathan, who was born while the production of The Empire Strikes Back, made an appearance in the Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace when he played the role of the Royal Guards of Naboo.
Mark Hamill – Marilou York | Now
The couple who got married in 1978 in a private ceremony is still together and is still looking fabulous on the red carpet with their family.
The actor who has had a few personal bumps in his life including the time he was seriously injured in a car crash, has grown stronger and is now a happy man with a very hyped up social media account.
Chuck Norris – Gena O’Kelley | Then
Learning from past mistakes, the martial art professional and the Walker, Texas Ranger actor decided that next time around will be a better one. Norris met his second wife, former model and deputy sheriff in California, Gena O’Kelley, in Dallas in 1997.
Their friendship grew into a loving relationship. When he met Gena, the actor was 58 while she was only 30 years old. The couple has twins, a boy and a girl.
Chuck Norris – Gena O’Kelley | Now
The couple is still married and they live happily with their blended families. Gena has two kids from her previous marriage and Chuck has three other children apart from their twins; one child of which was born out of an extramarital affair.
The happy couple have a couple of homes in the South, including a ranch close to Houston.
Richard Dreyfuss – Jeramie Rain | Then
The Oscar winner who won an Academy Award for his role in the 1977 The Goodbye Girl met actress and producer, Jeramie Rain when she was 34 in the beginning of the 80’s and had three children together.
Sadly, their oldest son was born with an unusual genetic eye disorder which left him blind.
Richard Dreyfuss – Jeramie Rain | Now
Although the couple has had to face some tough situations while being married and you would think they would get them closer together, the couple ended up getting divorced in 1995.
Since then Dreyfuss remarried but got divorced again. Rain was diagnosed with systemic lupus when she was 28 and today she is the founder of a charity for children who are diagnosed with the same disease.
Sylvester Stallone – Brigitte Nielsen | Then
The action movie star who is famous for his roles as Rocky Balboa and Rambo married the Danish model and actress on December 15, 1985.
The two actors met when Stallone was at the peak of his career. Nielsen also appeared in the Rocky IV movie as well as Beverly Hills Cop.
Sylvester Stallone – Brigitte Nielsen | Now
The marriage between the good looking actor couple ended after only two years and their breakup was highly covered by the press. Nielsen was Stallone’s second wife and the actor married for the third time in 1997 and now has three daughters.
Brigitte, who was also infamously known for her affair with fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger when he was still married, has had some television appearances on the Italian and Swedish television. She has been married five times in total and is married to day to Mattia Dessi and the two live in Palm Springs.
Richard Gere – Cindy Crawford | Then
The good looking actor sure did date some pretty women before he starred in the 1990 hit movie. Gere started dating supermodel Cindy Crawford when she was only 21 and when the two had a big age difference. T
hey were probably one of Hollywood’s most attractive couples of all time. The couple got married in 1991 and when they attended the red carpet they looked like they were taken out of a magazine.
Richard Gere – Cindy Crawford | Now
After four years of marriage, the couple divorced in 1995. Gere remarried model Carey Lowell and they have a son. They separated after 11 years.
The former supermodel is looking as beautiful as always. She married a fellow model named Rande Gerber in 1998 and the two have two very attractive children. Their daughter Kaia is pursuing her modeling career these days.
Michael York – Patricia McCallum | Then
The 74 year old actor who has had an impressive career in film and in television, met photographer, Patricia McCallum when she was hired to take his pictures in 1967.
The two got married a year later on York’s 26th birthday, and would prove to be yet another successful Hollywood match.
Michael York – Patricia McCallum | Now
The couple who got married in 1967 is still together and are looking very happy. They still arrive on the red carpets looking sharp and gorgeous.
They have one son, Rick McCallum, the Star Wars producer, who is actually York’s step son. The actor announced in 2013 that he was diagnosed with amyloidosis, but having his wife to support him makes him stronger as each day goes by.
Tim Allen – Laura Diebel | Then
The comedy actor met Laura Diebel when he was doing his Bachelor’s degree in television and radio production at Western Michigan University.
Allen married Diebel in 1984 at a tricky time in his life when he was dealing drugs despite his personal and professional success.
Tim Allen – Laura Diebel | Now
The couple did not stand the test of time and in 1999 they separated after they had one daughter together. His rocky life was filled with ups and downs.
In 1997 he had another bump when he was charged with drunk driving but was doing great on his series, Home Improvement and on the Toy Story movie.
Jeff Goldblum – Geena Davis | Then
It is known that when working together for many hours on set and spending so much in each other’s company, fly sparks and romances may hit.
We guess that was the case for Jeff and Geena who got married in 1987 after they worked on three different films together.
Jeff Goldblum – Geena Davisl | Now
These two cannot be more apart from each other these days. Geena, who was the actor’s second wife turned to the small screen and you could see her extraordinary performance on season 11 of Grey’s Anatomy.
Jeff on the other hand continued with this successful career and was in charge of the comic spin off of the Jurassic Park series.
Kelsey Grammer – Camille Grammer | Then
The Frasier star himself married the Playboy model in 1997 and it seems like their marriage was doomed from the get go since the two had a very nasty divorce that was finalized in 2011.
We hope this didn’t effect their two children too badly.
Kelsey Grammer – Camille Grammer | Now
Just like many stars do these days, Camille turned to reality television when she was part of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on the franchise’s eleventh season.
Kelsey went on to appear on television as well as in film, and some of his film work includes X-Men: The Last Stand and The Expendables 3.
Colin Firth – Livia Giuggioli | Then
The British actor married Livia in 1997, soon after he split from his long time partner of five years, Meg Tilly.
Colin and Livia have two sons named Luca and Matteo.
Colin Firth – Livia Giuggioli | Now
It’s lovely to see that Firth and his wife are still going string and they are happily married. It’s hard to miss Colin as he is one of the busiest actors in Hollywood.
His outstanding performance on the 2010 biographical movie, The King’s Speech even won the British actor an Oscar as well as other important words.
Antonio Banderas – Melanie Griffith | Then
We guess the sparks that flew on the film that they co starred together were just Too Much for the these two to handle that they had to act on their love.
Antonio and Melanie, who met in 1995 married the following year and that was actually the second time around for Banderas. Their love was so passionate that Griffith even tattooed her husband’s name on her body.
Antonio Banderas – Melanie Griffith | Now
These two lovebirds were one of Hollywood’s strongest couples for years, but unfortunately they divorced in 2015.
Their divorce left many people in complete shock. They have one daughter named Stella Banderas.
Alec Baldwin – Kim Basinger | Then
Another fashionable power couple was Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin who met in 1990 when they co starred on The Marrying Man.
The two actually got married three years later and they have one daughter, Ireland Baldwin, who seems to be following in her parent’s footsteps.
Alec Baldwin – Kim Basinger | Now
Baldwin and Basinger split in 2002, and they both moved on since then. Alec married Hilaria Thomas in 2012 and the two have three children together.
Kim will have a very sassy role in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey film.
Robert Downey Jr. – Deborah Falconer | Then
He was always considered as a Hollywood bad boy, and that could explain his rash decision to marry Falconer after only 42 days.
They must have done something right as the two were married for 12 years until they divorced in 2004. Their divorce was blamed a lot on the actor’s drinking problems.
Robert Downey Jr. – Deborah Falconer | Now
After the two got divorced, Robert quickly found himself in a new relationship and he married Susan Downey in 2005. Robert is doing very well in his personal life as he’s been sober for quite some time now, as well as with his career.
His latest performance was on the hit film, Iron Man.
Andre Agassi – Brook Shields | Then
Brooke Shields and Andra Agassi were married from 1997 until 1999. The professional tennis player and the actress had a turbulent marriage – Agassi was addicted to crystal meth for the majority of their relationship and it eventually took a toll on their union.
When Booke suggested that they go to couples counseling, to develop their communication skills and help Andre into recovery, he refused. Brooke filed for divorce soon after, but still considers Andre to be a good human deep down. At the time he would have done anything for his wife and her, in return.
Andre Agassi – Brook Shields | Now
Today, Brooke became the successful actress we all know and love, and Andre has since retired, although, he released a tell-all memoir in 2009.
Brooke wasn’t a fan of the autobiography, but she did sit with her ex-husband’s ghost-writer to get the most pivotal points of their marriage depicted correctly. Brooke doesn’t feel that she was as poorly portrayed as she had initially expected, but the past partners aren’t necessarily close friends now, either.
Gary Oldman – Uma Thurman | Then
Oldman and Thurman met when they were both playing in the 1990’s action movie, State of Grace. What started as love at first sight soon ended after only two years.
That was actually Gary’s second time around while it was Uma’s first. Since they broke their marriage, Gary had remarried three times and Uma married co star, Ethan Hawke.
Gary Oldman – Uma Thurman | Now
Since their split in 1992, the two actors had basically zero contact. While Gary is in the process of another divorce, Thurman’s acting career was on the rise, where she acted in box office hits like the Kill Bill series.
What went on between the two when they were married was never publicized, and the Oldman’s domestic violence charges did not help his image over the years. When Thurman was asked about their marriage, she quite openly said that “…it ended. As it needed to.”
Tommy Lee – Heather Locklear | Then
Nothing says a match made in rock heaven like a matching hairdo! Before her Richie Sambora days, The Melrose Place star was married to another rockstar, Tommy Lee.
The two were married from 1986 till 1993. When asked about Lee, the actress simply said that he was very “tiring”. The hot couple broke off their marriage after Lee reportedly didn’t want to start a family.
Tommy Lee – Heather Locklear | Now
