Famous women who found love after 40

ADVERTISEMENT

When they say that love has no age, they also mean that it is possible to find love, even if it’s for the second or third time around, even later in life. While some celebrities were fortunate to walk down the aisle at an early stage of their life, others took their time to find their person and their forever after. Being patient paid off for these famous women, as they found the love of their life after they turned 40.

Demi Moore

Despite how their relationship ended, for almost ten years, Demi Moore and That 70’s Show Star, Ashton Kutcher, were one of Hollywood’s most intriguing and beautiful couples. Moore, who was also famously married to actor, Bruce Willis with she had three daughters, found love with Kutcher back in the early 2000’s and they two made it official in 2005 when Demi was 43 years old. Their 15 year age difference did not stop these two from leading a very affectionate life, at least when the cameras were on.

Salma Hayek

The 50-year-old actress found love and her forever after when she tied the knot at the age of 42. She married French businessman and billionaire, Francois-Henri Pinault, and the two couldn’t have been more romantic as they married on Valentine’s Day of 2009. Hayek almost lost hope on love as she was approaching her 40’s, and as soon as she started to focus on the positive things in life, things turned around for the actress and she found her future husband and father of her daughter, Valentina.

Elizabeth Hurley

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Hurley was never married to her long-time partner, fellow British actor, Hugh Grant as the two were dating for almost fifteen years. While these two seemed like they would go the distance, it was Indian textile millionaire, Arun Naya, who stole Elizabeth’s heart when he asked her to marry him when she was 41. The couple tied the knot in a lavish Anglican wedding and later in another traditional ceremony in India. Their expensive wedding festival didn’t help the couple last forever and they divorced in 2011.

Sandra Bullock

It’s no secret how badly these two’s marriage ended, however their sweet love story of how it all began is worth mentioning them on our list. The Oscar winner and met her future husband – turn – ex- husband when her nephew was asking his famous aunt to arrange a tour on the set of Jesse’s reality show. For some reasons, sparks flew and the couple married in 2005, 10 days before Bullock turned 42. Their marriage only lasted five years.

Marcia Cross

The Melrose Place alumni and Desperate Housewife star, is not so desperate to find love anymore. Cross, who met her stockbroker hubby, Tom Mahoney at a flower shop, walked down the isle when she was 44 years old. It was worth for Cross to wait for the love of her life as the two are happily married and they have two twin daughters, Savanna and Glory. Oh, and Marcia was the one who handed out her phone number to the shop owner to give to Tom, so basically she hit on him.

Jennifer Lopez

The diva who just seems to loom more and more beautiful as the years go by has had her fair share of relationships. She was married three times including one high profile marriage to singer, Marc Anthony with whom she has twins, however that last marriage didn’t last either. This fact never stopped the actress and singer to look for her next person, and currently, at the age of 47 she is dating Alex Rodriguez, also known as A Rod, the professional baseball player. The two seem very comfortable and happy in each other’s company.

Diane Sawyer

When the famous journalist married her husband of 26 years, Mike Nichols, back in 1988, she was 42 years old. Their sweet love story started two years before they tied the knot, when the 60 Minutes correspondent met Nichols (who was by the way one of the only few EGOT winners) at the airport in Paris. Sawyer was the director’s fourth wife, and he was her first husband. Their marriage was sadly interrupted by Nichol’s sudden death at the age of 83.

Diane Lane

Everyone loved to watch this sweetheart in some of the most romantic films and the way she gracefully took on the roles of the older woman who falls in love with younger men. It was hard not to fall for her in Under the Tuscan Sun and in Unfaithful. Just like in her films, Lane found love with a younger man when she was in her forties. She married Josh Brolin when she was 40 years old, however the couple divorced in 2013. Josh was Lane’s second husband.

The Jane Austen Book Club actress who is 50 years old was split from her girlfriend of two years, Clare Munn when she realized that it was Elijah Allan-Blitz whom she wants to be involved with again.

Al Mana is the singer’s third husband and the father of her son. There have been rumors that the two are on their way to file for their divorce, after they have reportedly separated just three months after welcoming their son. We’ll just have to wait and see what’s in store for these two. Their son is named Eissa, which means ‘Jesus’ in Arabic.

The ultimate Mamagern (mom-manager) who is the mother of the famous Kardashian clan, has been married to Caitlyn Jenner from 1991 to 2015 after the two have publicly split and went into completely different directions. Kris, who is 61 years old and looks amazing by the way, was dating Corey Gamble for two years, who is much younger than the reality star, however the two have recently split. We have a feeling Kris won’t have a problem finding love once again very soon.

Ellen Degeneres

Funny woman and beloved talk show host publicly came out almost 20 years ago on her show, and it seems like not only Ellen but the world has come a long was and progressed ever since that groundbreaking moment. DeGeneres married her long-time partner, actress, Portia de Rossi in 2008 when she was 50 years old. The two are definitely a power-couple in Hollywood and seem to just enjoy life together.

The couple who has been long-time lovers said their ‘I Do’s’ in Newport Beach, California on a luxurious yacht with her daughters by her side and her granddaughter, Blue Ivy as the cute flower girl. Who said you can’t find love after 60?

Calista Flockhart

Their more than 20 years age difference never interfered with the love and compassion that these two love birds have for one another. Calista is Harrison Ford’s third wife (they say third time’s the charm), and although these two have been together for years, they only made it oficial when Calista was 45 years old. They have one son together named Liam and are proving that age has no meaning when it comes to love as they are still one of Hollywood’s strongest couples.

Amy Adams

For some couples it takes longer to actually make it official and become husband and wife. We will never know what really happens behind closed doors, but for Amy Adams and her recent hubby, it took quite some time to decide that they want to be each other’s forever after. The two dated for seven years until they got engaged in 2008, however, they only tied the know in 2015 when Amy was 40 years old, three months before her 41st birthday.

Julianna Margulies

The former ER star who is 50 years old these days, took her time to find the one as she married when she was 41 years old. She married Keith Liebertha, an attorney who is not really related to the Hollywood scene and the show business. One year after they married, Margulies gave birth to their only son.

Cynthia Nixon

Everyone knows Cynthia Nixon from HBO’s hot show where she was one of the four super ladies who kept us all entertained with their dynamic love lives for six seasons. However, in real life it was a bit more complicated for the actress to act on her love and she only came out after she has dated her long-time partner, Christine Marinoni, for six years. Nixon and Marinoni tied the knot when the actress was 46 years old in New York City, quite fittingly.

Gwen Stefani

No Doubt that love is in the cards for the singer-turn-solo artist, Gwen Stefani. The 47-year-old was married to Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale for 14 years and the couple has two sons together. Gwen has been tied to her co-host, Blake Shelton whom she met on the set of the singing reality show, The Voice. The two who divorced their former partners around the same time have been extremely close and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them tie the knot any time soon.

Cameron Diaz

The blonde actress who is pretty much a romantic comedy star took her time to find the one person who will give her the perfect love story in real life. Although Diaz’s name has been tied to many of Hollywood’s leading men including Matt Dillon and Justin Timberlake, it was musician Benji Madden who stole her heart. Cameron finally tied the knot when she was 42 years old in a private ceremony at her home in LA.

Jennifer Aniston

Everyone was rooting for America’s sweetheart and favorite Friend to find her happy ending after her heart-breaking divorce from Brad Pitt, to whom she was married for five years. It was almost like the world was divided into Team Jen and Team Angie at the time of Jen and Brad’s divorce. Since her divorce, the sweet actress has dated a couple of men, however it was co-star-turn fiancé Justin Theroux, who captured her heart forever. The loving couple said their ‘I Do’s’ in 2015 when Justin was 41 years old and Jen was 46.
