If you’re a sucker for romance, however, you’re probably fascinated to see who is dating who, or better yet, which veteran actors have crushed couple goals by staying in sometimes decades-long relationships, all whilst being under the spotlight. Agree? Then check out part two of celeb couples who have kept their love a secret.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied
The very lovely Natalie Portman, who has now relocated to Australia is clearly a fan of keeping a relatively low profile. Do you even know who her husband is? Yeah. So the guy is Benjamin Millepied, whom she met on the set of the terrific “Black Swan” back in 2009.
He worked as the choreographer and also had a role in the film! The pair had a son first in June before Portman married him in August of 2012. Crazy huh?
Jennifer Lawrence & Cooke Maroney
Lawrence managed to bag gallery director Cooke Maroney after only a few months of dating. The silver screen star started dating the director of New York's Gladstone gallery back in June of 2018, and it wasn't long before Cooke popped the question.
They kept their relationship relatively quiet and private. The two got married in 2019 in a comparatively intimate wedding (a mere 150 guests) and are still together. In fact, the relationship has become so important to Lawrence that she's decided to take a step back from acting in order to help it stay strong.
Matt Bomer & Simon Halls
Everyone has heard of secret weddings. But not many may know that secret marriage actually exist. That is exactly what happened to Matt Bomer and Simon Halls. The two were secretly married for three whole years.
Not many people knew of their marriage and their wedding was attended only by both parties’ close family members and friends. Would you do the same thing if you were in their place?
Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak
It was 15 years before The Big Bang Theory actor Jim Parsons, and his now-husband Todd Spiewak got together. According to Parsons, he didn’t think much of the wedding thing but decided to go ahead with it to “legalize this thing”.
The two wed in May 2017 in New York City’s Rainbow Room. Prior to the wedding, Parsons never felt the need to get married as he was fine staying as they are. He likened the experience of being together with Spiewak as ‘close to being with God’.
Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer
Ever date someone who can't cook? Well, this wasn’t the case for Amy Schumer and her hubby! Chris Fischer is a chef! If we heard that, we’d be getting down on one knee too! Delicious. Anyway, the farmer who hails from the gorgeously scenic Martha’s Vineyard married the comedian and actress in 2018.
How did they meet? Fischer cooked his way to her heart when she was at his family’s farm visiting the area. The two lead a relatively modest and private life, making it sometimes impossible to recognize them walking down the road.
Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser
The Gilmore Girls and Handmaid’s Tale star met fellow actor and husband, Vincent Kartheiser when she played his mistress in the ’50s set drama, Mad Men.
The stars started dating when they wrapped filming, got married in 2014, and welcomed their son into the world the following year.
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa
Jason Momoa has been deeply in love with Lisa ever since he laid eyes on her in the Cosby show. The couple had a many-years-long relationship despite their 12 year age gap. Sadly, however, they decided to call it quits in early 2022.
Lisa was previously married to her rocker ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz, and had one child Zoe Kravitz.
Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld
Jerry and Jessica fell in love back in their bagels and lox days, but they're much more health-conscious now. Although Jessica is still famous for her Long Island Chicken Parmesan (which she prepared on their first date).
The couple has been married for nearly 20 years now. Jerry still refers to her as his 'best friend.' And that my dears, is the secret to relationship longevity, actually liking your significant other.
Karlie Kloss and Josh Kushner
The supermodel who is known for her extremely long legs and overall runway presence did not opt for a fellow model as her spouse or even an A-lister at that. But while he doesn’t have Hollywood fame or model status, he is a very successful venture capitalist. Well, real estate heir. Lucky…both of them!
Looks, dollars, and love - seems that the model and Project Runway judge hit the jackpot! For those interested, Kushner is Ivanka Trump’s husband’s brother! Guess big wealth runs in the family…
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
The way these two met was in the light of some dark circumstances. Streep was mourning the loss of her boyfriend at the time, John Cazale, who passed away too early in life. At the time her brother Harry came along with a friend - Don. Just six months later the pair said “I do.”
While he isn’t a “celebrity” in the same way Meryl Streep is, he’s quite a celebrated sculptor! He’s been doing him, winning awards and having his work featured in public commissioned art! Pretty cool!
Emily Ratajkowski & Sebastian Bear-McClard
We don't have exact dates for when this couple, made up of supermodel Emily and actor Sebastian, actually started dating – or even when they got engaged. However, while the dating relationship itself might not have been very long, Ratajkowski apparently kept Sebastian in the friend zone for two years.
Or, as she put it, she spent two years vetting him. The couple tied the knot in a surprise ceremony at New York's City Hall in February of 2018.
Nnamdi Asomugha & Kerry Washington
It’s hard to say who takes the lead in this marriage because both are acclaimed television and movie stars. Nnamdi Asomugha had his breakout performance in 2017 at the Sundance Film Festival for his lead role in Crown Heights. Before that, he was one of the best cornerbacks the NFL has ever seen.
His wife Kerry Washington’s successful career on stage, film, and on TV has spanned over two decades. She is admired for playing Olivia Pope on the popular ABC TV series 'Scandal,' which earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. The couple met when Washington performed on Broadway and Asomugha attended. She informed him she didn’t date athletes, and he responded that he didn’t date actresses. The couple married in 2013, they have two children, and they are very private about their marriage.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
These two screen veterans are still together after more than 35 years. You might remember the hilarious rom-com 'Overboard', which saw a snobbish Hamptons-loving socialite suffer from amnesia before being tricked into thinking she was married to the single father of three, played by Kurt Russell.
By that time, the pair had been dating for 5 years, deciding in 1982 that they would never marry, and just raise their blended family as “committed partners.” And they’ve been committed partners ever since. Goldie Hawn once told the media that the secret to their partnership was the fact that they’d never walked down the aisle.
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
The stunning Catherine Zeta-Jones shocked the world when she and Michael Douglas announced their engagement. The Welsh beauty has taken the leading lady role in many films, from 'Entrapment' to 'The Mask of Zorro'. And Michael Douglas, well, his reputation precedes him – we really don’t have to list his slew of films!
Prominent in Hollywood, the pair have grown from strength to strength, and stuck by one another. Despite signing a prenup before saying “I do”, it’s highly unlikely that the pair will need to call in the lawyers, a la 'Intolerable Cruelty'! Almost twenty years later, the pair have two kids together and have earned a lavish lifestyle. Cheers to that!
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias
We're sure Enrique has serenaded his wife of 17 years, Anna Kournikova, many, many times! The couple started dating after meeting in 2001 on the set of his “Escape” video clip. At 21, Kournikova gave up the Wimbledon pursuit and decided to follow her heart instead.
Fast forward and Enrique and Anna have a gorgeous set of twins together, who seem to love their football as much as their dad. Not to mention inheriting the good looks from both sides.
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
'Sex and the City' meets 'Ferris Bueller', this Tinsel town couple has been together through it all. The fashionista from Hollywood, Sarah Jessica Parker found her man in Matthew Broderick, and they’ve lasted for just over two decades. The pair first locked eyes on one another when they were introduced through Sarah’s brother.
It seems that while they keep their personal life under wraps, Sarah Jessica did provide some insight as to her true feelings: "Call me crazy, but I love him. We're very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he's the father of my children, and it's because of him that there's this whole other world that I love.”
Cyndi Lauper and David Thornton
For the singer of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, you kind of wouldn’t expect Cyndi Lauper to be going with one guy for most of her life, right? Well, it seems Ms. Lauper is precisely the opposite and has remained with her partner in crime David Thornton for a staggering 28 years! Despite the fact that Hollywood is rife with lawsuits and divorce proceedings, these two prove that relationships in Tinsel town can, in fact, survive, and even thrive.
We think it’s owing to the fact that when the pair met, Cyndi was at her worst, going through a bit of a rough patch with her relationships. At the time she had been dating her manager on and off, but it seemed that Dave Wolff was causing her more drama than happiness. Fast forward, and Thornton and Lauper met, became friends, and before they knew it tied the knot in 1991. The rest is happy history.
John Travolta and Kelly Preston
Hitting our screens with some knee-dropping, toe-tapping, and electric dance moves, the star of 'Saturday Night Fever is a Hollywood heavyweight. But back to his love story, John Travolta came across Kelly Preston on the set of 'The Experts' in 1989.
The pair married two years later and had enjoyed 28 year marriage that produced three kids. Tragically in July 2020, Kelly passed away in her Florida. They will always be remembered as on of Hollywood's greatest couples.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest
The stunning Jamie Lee Curtis and her beau Christopher Guest have been married for over thirty years. We love the way they “met”, too: Curtis, in fact, spotted Christopher Guest on the cover of a magazine one day. From that one picture, she proclaimed that this man would be her future husband. And it actually happened!
The pair have two children together. And did you know that Christopher Guest has the title of a Baron? Pretty cool!
Adam Sandler and Jackie Sandler
Hollywood funnyman Adam Sandler is pretty much a comedic genius when it comes to the genre. Anyone who disagrees, well, they clearly haven’t seen 'Happy Gilmore'. The king of late 90s comedy films, Sandler kept himself busy (and still is keeping busy). You’d think with a hectic schedule that your love life would take a bit of a hit, but not the case for Sandler.
He makes sure to set aside time for his family, which we think is extremely important. Devoted to his two daughters and wife of 20 years, Jackie, Sandler is quite the family man. We’re sure that the checks he brings into the family also help with keeping that marriage strong.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Fred Jones, and apparently, they liked the look of each other enough to get married. Anyway, characters aside, the pair has remained married for almost twenty years. The secret? “We were just friends. That’s one of the reasons I think our relationship has always been so good,” Freddie said.
The pair met on the set of 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and started their friendship there. So hey, friends first, lovers later!
Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
With his debonair charm and signature smirk, it’s no wonder Harrison Ford wooed the likes of Calista Flockhart. The pair have been married since June 2010, and really seem to be enjoying married life together.
With such an unwavering relationship the pair support each other through everything – for Harrison Ford, it’s aviation! Couples that support one another, stay together.
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening
With a 21-year age gap, we’re once again shown that age is just a number. Especially when that gap hasn’t stopped Annette Bening and Warren Beatty for 27 years. The pair married in 1992, just a year after she split from her former husband Steven White.
Beatty, on the other hand, is a bit of a legend, and he’s been acting for almost 50 years. His creative talents as a filmmaker and actor wowed many women in the past, and we’re sure Bening was no exception! The pair have raised four kids together, and are looking toward a bright future together.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady
Brazilian supermodel Gisele and her New England Patriots quarterback husband, Tom Brady, are incredible together. It just took a meeting to really seal the deal. In 2006, the pair met at a mutual friend’s house, and since then, they've been joined at the hip.
Super aligned with their beliefs and lifestyle, this couple was made for each other. We’re sure when Brady was a teen, he wouldn’t have dreamed of marrying a stunning Brazilian woman – but hey, life! The pair tied the knot in 2009 and haven’t looked back, welcoming a boy and a girl into their lives.
Sting and Trudie Styler
From The Police to his solo act, Sting has an instantly recognizable voice which puts him down in history as one of the greats. What’s more, is his personal life: he and his wife Trudie Styler have been together for more than a quarter of a century! Meeting in 1982, the pair dated for ten years before finally tying the knot in 1992.
It seems that to spend 35 years with someone must mean they’re doing something right - close friends say that the couple's love is almost teenage-like, in the sense that they’re just so into each other. And Sting himself backs this up, revealing that Trudie remains the light in his life (as well as their four kids together).
Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan
Michael J. Fox rose to fame on our television screens going as far back as 1976. For you millennials, he’s the guy who plays Marty McFly in the 'Back to the Future' trilogy. Anyway, we’re here to talk about love, something which Michael J. Fox and his darling wife Tracy Pollan have loads to give to one another.
The pair got together in the 80s, first meeting while Pollan was shooting 'Family Ties', but it wasn’t until two years later on the set of 'Bright Lights, Big City' that they started getting more serious. Fast forward three decades and Fox and Pollan are still together, especially through crucial years up to today, with Fox suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
Michelle Pfeiffer and David E. Kelley
Set up on a blind date back in 1993, Michelle Pfeiffer had no idea she’d be meeting the man she was going to marry. After 25 years of marriage, Pfeiffer claims that TV writer David E. Kelley makes her feel “like the luckiest girl in the room!” Pfeiffer says that “Life is made up of the choices and I’ve not always made good choices but I know I picked the right man.” Well, that’s quite the compliment!
Within 10 months, the pair were saying “I do”, much to people’s surprise. But people were wrong, and while they speculated it wouldn’t last, we think 25 years is enough proof, don't you?
Oprah Winfrey and Stedman Graham
The ultimate inspiration for any female with a dream, it seems that Oprah Winfrey has also nailed it when it comes to her love life. The magnanimous talk-show host and multi-billionaire know a thing or two about life and relationships, and while she’s not married to her long-term partner Stedman Graham, she's still managed to keep a steady relationship for 32 years!
Graham himself is a businessman, author, and podcaster. While many men would stay away from a woman so powerful and wealthy, Graham has been in for the long haul. The pair were acquainted in 1986 and have been by each other’s sides since then.
Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher
Whether you know him as Ali G, Borat, or Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen has to be one of the funniest (but also one of the most controversial) men in Hollywood. And by his side, an equally funny and stunning wife, Australian actress Isla Fisher. Meeting back in 2002, the pair first laid eyes on one another in Sydney. What seemed to be love, at first sight, saw the pair walking down the aisle two years later in a Jewish ceremony in Paris.
Isla converted to Judaism for her man, and now they have three children together, splitting their time between London and LA. What a life, right? We absolutely loved Isla Fisher opposite Gal Gadot and Zach Galifianakis in 'Keeping Up with the Joneses (even if it bombed slightly). But we’re here to celebrate Isla and Sacha’s love. And many years more.
Tom Selleck and Jillie Mack
At 38, single, Selleck was feeling a bit lonesome. And what do we do when we’re lonely? We take ourselves out on a date! For Selleck, it was to see 'Cats', a show that he loved so much he kept going back for more. But there was a reason for his fascination with the musical – actress, dancer Jillie Mack starred in it! The pair went for dinner and the rest is history – 32 years of history, to be exact.
She was then seen at every event Selleck was invited to – red carpets, awards shows, and ceremonies - she was “his girl.” The two tied the knot in 1987, welcoming their bundle of joy, Hannah, into the world just a year later, at which point Selleck quit 'Magnum P.I' to focus on his family. Their relationship is sometimes so boring (in a good way), that we tend to forget it even exists.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Since Oprah bowed out, Ellen DeGeneres took the top spot on the podium of America’s most popular and beloved talk show hosts. With her wife Portia De Rossi by her side, the pair have been enjoying the spoils of their success together.
Rumors came about their divorce, however, the rumors remained rumors. The couple keeps us updated regularly on their Instagram accounts and they are stronger together than ever. You go, girls!
Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence
These two met on a blind date and were together for a year. They went their separate ways but then reunited ten years later! "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Cheryl Burke and former "Boy Meets World" star Matthew Lawrence got back together in 2017.
After two years of romance and a charming wedding proposal on her birthday, the lovebirds celebrated their bond by tying the knot at a grand fairy tale wedding in the month of May.
Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton
Cate Blanchette and Andrew Upton have been married so long they exchange gifts like a microwaves or vacuum cleaners for their wedding anniversaries. The two-time Oscar-winning actress met Upton on the set of a TV show in 1996. He proposed after three weeks of dating.
The pair from Australia were joint artistic directors for the Sydney Theatre Company for five years. The "Lord of the Rings" actress says they homeschool their four children at their house in Sydney.
Sean Penn and Leila George
Sean Penn has had an array of prominent wives. He was married to Madonna in the ‘80s and parted ways with Charlize Theron in 2015. Since then, Penn and Leila George have been linked. It came out that they were a couple in 2016 and they tied the knot in the summer of 2020.
It was a happy trajectory to an on-again, off-again relationship. Word is, they bonded during quarantine. So, it seems natural that they had a Zoom wedding. Don't get too excited though, perhaps all that bonding time got too much as now they're now getting divorced! Oh, Sean.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha McCauley
This furtive duo married secretly in December of 2014. Before that, all we knew was that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had a girlfriend and that neither of them wanted to openly discuss it. Now it’s out.
The actor/director is married to Tasha McCauley, co-founder, and CEO of a robotics company based at NASA’s research park in Silicon Valley. She met the "Third Rock From The Sun" star on a blind date organized by a mutual friend.
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie
Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are famous for trying to kill each other on "Game of Thrones." Memorably, Ygritte shoots three arrows into Jon Snow. It’s not your average love story. The pair’s real-life love story is more conventionally romantic.
They’ve been living in their English Tudor manor house since GOT concluded. At the end of 2020 they announced their first child is on the way, but no forthcoming details. One thing is certain: the baby is coming!
Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler
Matthew Rutler was a production assistant on the set of "Burlesque "when he met superstar Christina Aguilera in 2009. The pop diva played a small-town girl who makes it in LA. This couple dishes bold shares on social media, but not much in the way of relationship deets. To the point, they announced their engagement six years ago.
It was a cryptic Instagram post that has left fans on the edge of their seats since Valentine’s Day 2014. Their daughter Summer Rain is six years old and they’ve been together for over 10 years.
Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks
These lovebirds have been dating for over a year and it looks like things are getting serious. "Hunger Games" actor Liam Hemsworth and English model and actress Gabriella Brooks hosted a New Year’s Eve party at Hemsworth's sprawling Aussie property.
Plus, it seems she may have moved into the estate. Also, Brooks was recently on Hemsworth’s arm at a family birthday party for older brother Luke Hemsworth’s 40th. It’s been kept quiet, no doubt, since Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus were married and divorced, all within a year, ending in 2019.
Ashley Olsen and Louis Eisner
It’s no wonder "Full House" twin Ashley Olsen avoids publicity like the plague. She turned to the fashion industry and left acting behind at 18. Now she has something else to protect from the spotlight—her boyfriend Louis Eisner, an artist out of Los Angeles.
Nobody knows how they hooked up, but they were first spotted in LA at Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden in 2017. Their bi-coastal relationship has been solid ever since. They make it work with Eisner staying with Olsen in New York, and she, with him, in LA.
Lady Gaga and Michael Polansky
Lady Gaga and wealthy financier Michael Polansky have been an item since they were caught smooching at a New Year’s Eve bash heading into 2020. They’ve been together since then. Polansky accompanied her at the inaugural event in DC.
Earlier in 2020, Gaga hit Instagram with a post saying they’ve been hunkering down together, playing cards and video games. Sources say he likes to lavish her. The Oscar-winning singer told Morning Joe he is the love of her life.
Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz
This pair is surprisingly low-key considering they’ve been friends since 1994. British actors Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz met long before he was 007 and she was an Oscar-winning actress. But they didn’t start seeing each other as-more-than friends until the end of 2010.
It happened after starring as a married couple in "Dream House." They secretly married a year later at a very intimate ceremony. The couple welcomed a daughter in 2018.
Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith
This couple’s whirlwind romance kicked up in 2019 and closed out the year with "US Weekly" breaking the news of their secret wedding. British model Jodie Turner-Smith and actor Joshua Jackson met at his celeb-heavy 40th birthday bash at a West Hollywood club. Showbiz media tracked every move for details.
Finally, the couple made a red-carpet appearance at AFI Fest for "Queen & Slim." After two years, Turner-Smith opened up saying their bond only grows stronger. Meanwhile, the former "Dawson’s Creek" star called the year that also brought their baby girl into their lives, “the happiest whirlwind” of his life.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton
These two were together ten years before they married in 2019. Hidden away in a quaint New York state farmhouse, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton reside there with their two kids, far from the bustle of the big Apple. "Grey’s Anatomy’s" Morgan met "One Tree Hill’s" Burton at CW, sort of.
"Supernatural" star Jensen Ackles knew both actors and decided the two should meet on a blind date. They met up on a double date with Ackles and Danneel Harris at an LA bar, drank too much, and never parted. It wasn’t just the booze, Burton told "People," “His confidence was intoxicating.”
Chelsea Peretti and Jordan Peele
Filmmaker Jordan Peele and actress/comedian Chelsea Peretti are a low-key couple. They married secretly in 2016 and had been dating since 2013. Their courtship, however, was very much in the open. Peele adorably proposed to Chelsea via Tweet.
No words, just an engagement ring emoji, and her Twitter name. Five months later, Chelsea posted a picture of a dog and this note: “[red heart emoji] eloped a bit ago.” The only witness was the pup. Now they have a little boy as well, born July 2017. Natural-born storytellers, clearly.
Amber Tamblyn and David Cross
"Arrested Development" star David Cross and actress Amber Tamblyn prefer privacy. The couple married in 2012 and share one child, a daughter. "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" actress Tamblyn announced her birth in 2017. But sometimes it’s impossible to keep things under wraps.
Tamblyn, an open feminist, faced the dicey media situation of finding her comedian husband (“rightfully”) accused of making discriminatory comments to co-star Charlyne Yi in the form of a bad joke. Tamblyn said the incident found them confronting hard times. The media storm blew over and their life is private again.
Carrie Coon and Tracy Letts
Carrie Coon and Tracy Letts fell in love during the 2010 season of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago. Both nabbed Tony Award nominations. Letts had already received the Pulitzer in 2008 for his play August: Osage County.
They starred in "The Post" together in 2017 and welcomed a baby boy in 2018. The couple wed in 2013. Whenever Letts finishes a writing project, he relies on Coon’s feedback. He sits nervously in another room, listening, and then asks which parts made her laugh. Just as adorable, Coon is moved he cares so much.
Elle Fanning and Max Minghella
Relationship rumors between Elle Fanning and her Teen Spirit director Max Minghella have been percolating for a long time. Neither chose to address being caught cuddling in London in 2018. Most people think it’s their age difference that has kept it so quiet.
But then, in 2019, the pair showed up at the MET Gala hand in hand. Twelve years is not a big deal. Minghella is barely 35. But, in fact, some have begged to differ.
Elliot Page and Emma Portner
Most of this couple’s open displays of affection will be found on Instagram, so it’s fitting that their romance took flight there. A flurry of exchanges of photos, videos, and comments went full circle in January of 2018 with an image of Elliot Page and Emma Portner’s nuptial bands matching and fingertips touching.
After two years of marriage, "Juno" star Page came out, and Portner took the opportunity to express her love and support. That said, the two recently called it quits after three years of marriage.
Helen Mirren and Taylor Hackford
This couple is well-acquainted with the under-the-radar Hollywood marriage lifestyle. In 2018, they celebrated 20 years together. Helen Mirren shared that she and Taylor Hackford rang in the New Year and dined at a fish restaurant in the south of Italy to honor it. Hackford’s birthday is on New Year’s Eve, as is their wedding anniversary.
The two tied the knot at a Catholic church in Scotland and have been a loving, but not romantic, couple ever since. Mirren says she’s not into Valentine’s Day or anything like that.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Marvel legend Thor-actor Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have enjoyed a quiet marriage in their home Down Under. But the Australian couple was spotted in the wild celebrating their 10th anniversary with holiday photos of Christmas 2020 on Instagram. The pair share three children and a lot of love.
Pataky is a Spanish actress, born in Madrid, but has been living in Australia with Hemsworth since they married. Thor will return to movie theaters in 2022 with "Love & Thunder. "Until then, fans can get their Hemsworth-fix with the Netflix exclusive "Extraction."
Taraji P. Henson and Kelvin Hayden
“I said yes y’all!!!” "Empire" empress Taraji Henson gushed. That’s how she captioned a photo of her sparkling rock on Instagram in 2018. Ex-NFL Super Bowl great Kelvin Hayden and set the date for spring 2020. Work schedules, family plans, and logistical problems bumped the wedding date again and again.
Henson wrote “I don’t think people understand what goes into wedding planning.” Alas, after a two-year engagement, Henson announced that plans to marry were canceled. Permanently.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk
This pair met on "Glee." With Brad Falchuk as co-creator and Gwyneth Paltrow on as a guest star, their behind-the-scenes romance was heading toward steamy by the summer of 2014. By April 2015, it was official. Relationship details are few and far between with this couple, which seems pretty counterintuitive given Paltrow’s TMI tendencies.
However, in April of 2020, they revealed the inner workings of their household. Holding down the fort with Gwyneth’s two teens can get tense. She said. “You know, we have the added dynamic of like, stepparent,” affecting the family.
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus ("Walking Dead") publish social media PDAs all the time. These affections, however, are reserved for their darling daughter. At the same time, they are so super-private they have refused to include photos of her face. Plus, they’ve yet to announce her name!
The couple came out as an item in 2017 and welcomed their daughter in 2018. When the paparazzi caught an image of their daughter, actress Kruger responded forcefully. Blurring out her child’s face, she reposted it asserting, “We, as parents, want nothing more than allow her to grow up in privacy and safety.”
Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan
This couple is ultra-private. The last we heard from them came in the form of a new baby announcement. Having said that, it was very low-key; they didn’t even release her name at first. Actor/writer/director Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan met in 2007 putting on a play, the first collaboration of many to come.
Dano joined Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" in 2018 to announce their film "Wildlife" and to confirm the news of their baby girl. Kazan, a Yale graduate who is an actress known for "The Big Sick" and a playwright, cowrote "Wildlife." Next, she will star in the Netflix miniseries "Clickbait."
Keira Knightley and James Righton
Actress Keira Knightley and keyboardist James Righton have two children together. Neither maintains a social media presence, so few PDAs exist. The actress who is known for "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Atonement" met Righton in 2011 and they married in 2013 in the south of France.
Righton sings and plays for a London electro-rock band and released a solo album in 2020. Knightley has been honored for her humanitarian work. Most recently, she signed a contract with Apple TV+ to produce and star in "The Essex Serpent."
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde
Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde began their under-the-radar relationship in 2011. They’re hardly ever photographed together but they do share two children. But, at the start of 2021, after a nine-year relationship, the quiet couple quietly separated, effectively putting an end to their engagement.
PDA photos emerged, but these showed Olivia Wilde with a new man, Harry Styles. Sudeikis is dealing with it by diving into new acting commitments and "US Weekly" says he is hoping and waiting for Olivia to come back to him.
Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy
Brooke Shields and Chris Henchy were introduced by friends in 1999 on the Warner Bros. lot. They announced their engagement the following year. Funny or Die creator and long-time writing collaborator of Will Ferrell, Chris Henchy, and ‘80s supermodel turned actress Brooke Shields live in NYC with their two daughters.
The family made a rare red-carpet appearance in February of last year. They were photographed together for the release of "Impractical Jokers: The Movie."
Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal
Peter Sarsgaard from "Dead Man Walking" and "Dark Knight" star Maggie Gyllenhaal have been together since 2002. In 2009, they married in a quaint Italian chapel in the ancient city of Brindisi, located in the heel of Southern Italy.
Most recently, the pair have been collaborating on "The Lost Daughter." Gyllenhaal directs and Sarsgaard stars in the story based on the novel by Elena Ferrante. Gyllenhaal was nominated for a Golden Globe for her work on "The Deuce," an HBO series she produced and starred in.
Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder’s relationship launched in turbulent skies with both of them in previous relationships and Roberts offering $100,000 to cameraman Moder’s ex-wife Vera for a divorce settlement. But that was years ago.
They married in 2002 and have three children. Roberts joined Gwyneth Paltrow’s podcast recently. She said hubby Moder is still her “favorite human.”
Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander
It seems this couple met at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival and then took a trial run playing husband and wife on "The Light Between Oceans." Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander appeared together at the premiere of the 2016 film and they were married in 2017. Recently, Vikander shared a sweet gift Fassbender gave her with "Good Morning America."
She said he took her on a surprise trip to see her family in Sweden. “I was able to hang out with my mom and my dad and a lot of family members I haven’t seen in a long time.”
Garrett Hedlund and Emma Roberts
Garrett Hedlund and Emma Roberts are welcoming 2021 with their infant son Rhodes who was born in December, as shared on Instagram. But not much else about their relationship has been revealed. Roberts opened up with a "Cosmopolitan" cover story saying, “Sometimes it makes me sad that I can’t have a private moment."
She went on to remark on the pressures of Twitter and Instagram and the constant exposure. The couple keeps the real story as low-key as possible. No word on engagement or marriage.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Martin McDonagh
Showrunners Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Martin McDonagh made their dating life official in 2018. Since then, Waller-Bridge was named the most powerful person on TV and McDonagh won three Golden Globes for "Three Billboards," including Best Motion Picture.
"Fleabag" and "Killing Eve" writer and actress Waller-Bridge once shared her adoration of a play by McDonagh, but, in general, the couple refuses to comment.
Florence Pugh and Zach Braff
Presumably, Florence Pugh and Zach Braff got to know each other making Braff’s film "In the Time It Takes to Get There." A shot of them walking hand in hand in NYC weeks later would seem to confirm the assumption. They’ve tried to keep their relationship under wraps because of what Pugh calls a “toxic vibe” seeping out of the internets.
Instagram followers attacked an image of her and former "Scrubs" star Braff together within seconds of posting because they thought a 20-year age difference was somehow bad. So, it’s no wonder the couple tries to stay private.
Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse
Robert Pattinson learned a few things about the relentless nature of celebrity media while dating Kristen Stewart. The "Twilight" hunk has not made a peep about his current relationship with Suki Waterhouse, and neither has she. It’s all very hush-hush, but that didn’t stop "In Touch" from publishing a new baby rumor.
Apparently, pretty much everyone knew they were trying to get pregnant, but the stunning model proved the rumors were just that. The unreliable source also says the tight-lipped couple is planning to marry, eventually. The baby bump never surfaced, and "Gossip Cop" called "US" out.
Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy
Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy are married? Yep. "Homeland" star Claire Danes, who also played Juliette to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Romeo has found a star-crossed love that’s all her own. Hugh Dancy, who plays the lead in "Hannibal," is her man.
The couple is not a big fan of social media PDAs, but they met in 2007 on the set of "Evening" and have been married since 2009. They married secretly in France and now they have two sons.
Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons
Jesse Plemons broke into show biz as "Breaking Bad’s" bad boy Todd. And you probably recognize Kirsten Dunst by her upside-down kiss with "Spider-Man." Their worlds collided on the set of the FX series "Fargo" in 2015 playing a married couple. Speculation swirled and was seemingly confirmed when Dunst left her boyfriend in 2016.
Two months later, "Us" caught Plemons and Dunst kissing. In 2017, the story was out. "Us" announced the pair’s engagement. And, voila, they welcomed a baby boy the following year, in May 2018. As far as we know, they are still engaged
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn
Taylor Swift has kept her relationship with Joe Alwyn as private as possible. However, details have been leaking out, especially since the release of her two new albums. Alwyn collaborated and even contributed music on the piano.
And then she opened up with Paul McCartney in a "Rolling Stone" interview and confirmed that the relationship was something she was trying to keep private, discussing vividly the frustration of trying to ditch the paparazzi. It’s definitely something to protect, rumor has it they’re in it forever.
Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski
These two dashed off together and got married three years ago. It was a surprise when they announced it on late-night television, especially since they both had been committed to one another until the fall of 2015. After an intense six-month romance, the two tied the knot.
Now they have two children and a beautiful life together. We get an occasional peek at it via Instagram. On their third anniversary, Seyfried and Sadoski are pictured smooching with the message, “Happy 3, Tommy.”
Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale
Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale have been together for a while since 2012 to be exact. Few know much about their relationship, but people assume they are married. It’s a valid assumption; Cannavale calls Byrne his wife. At an appearance on "The Late Show," Cannavale had to face the awkward question, “Why?”
He told James Corden it’s because he hasn’t found a better word. Neither “girlfriend” nor “partner” appeal. We have, however, seen them together. In "Adult Beginners " they play a married couple and they also share the screen in "Annie and Spy." Lately, they’ve been taking full advantage of isolation, hunkering down with the kids.
Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz
For Javier Bardem, it’s all about “protecting us.” As such, we have few relationship-reveals from the couple, and those that exist are mostly found in their onscreen love affairs. After ten years of marriage and having met in the early nineties, they’ve kept their private life sealed.
In a rare display of affection, in an acceptance speech at Cannes for the best actor award, Bardem gushed, “I share this joy with my friend, my companion, my love: Penélope: I owe you a lot and I love you so much.”
Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson
This couple has been together since around 2001, but little is known about them. Few pictures exist. When an unflattering paparazzi image that caught them walking together came out, Anderson responded with a Tweet, “we look like we’re going to kill someone.”
Maya Rudolph, the comedian we recognize impersonating Beyoncé and Kamala on SNL calls Paul Thomas Anderson her husband and shares four children with him, but technically, the pair is not married. Love, however, has endured. When the eight-time Oscar-nominated director was asked how often Rudolph makes him fall down laughing, he said, “Everyday.”
Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam
Cobie Smulders is a name you’ve seen in film credits way more than gossip magazines. The Marvel actress starred in "Avengers," plus all three sequels, as SHIELD agent Maria Hill. She’s also in "Spider-Man: Far From Home" and "Captain America: Winter Soldier."
Prior to that, you’d know her in "How I Met Your Mother." On his part, Killam’s known for his long stint with SNL. Now he’s on "Single Parents." There’s at least one media story about the couple. According to Killam, who dished the deal to "Us Weekly," they fell in love on a road trip in 2005.
Dave Franco and Alison Brie
Dave Franco and Alison Brie adore being married and they love working with each other. Most recently, they dove into "The Rental" with Brie acting and Franco directing for the very first time. They also enjoyed working together on "Disaster Artist" and "The Little Hours."
The couple is rarely photographed in the wild, but Franco let some privacy slip in "The Rental." In an exclusive "Interview" magazine interview, Brie fields a series of questions by Franco. In the piece, the "Community" and "GLOW" actress, shared that her husband wrote the script in their normal conversation voices.
Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley
Chances are you haven’t heard that the two-time Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie is married to British filmmaker Tom Ackerley. The couple has kept it very quiet. They met on the set of a 2014 film project. Robbie acted and Ackerley assisted with directing.
People were curious. Swirling rumors finally settled with an in-your-face Instagram engagement photo, she shows us the ring, she gives us the ring finger. These days the lovebirds run LuckyChap Entertainment. What’s that? Here are a few of their titles: "Promising Young Woman," "I, Tonya," and "Birds of Prey" plus Hulu’s "Dollface."
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester crossed paths in 2013 and married in 2014. We don’t get much information voluntarily, but Meester did share with "Shape" that she’s a surfer. Brody taught her, it’s something they enjoy doing together.
In December, in full wet suits, of course, the "Single Parents" actors have photographed longboarding off the coast of Malibu. The couple has two children. Brody says that parenthood is “pretty magical.”
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
We know with certainty, now, that Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden began dating in May 2014. There was a lot of speculation until, in July of that year, Nicole Richie (married to Benji Madden’s twin brother and bandmate) spilled the deets.
She confessed to introducing the couple and revealed that they were, in fact, in love. By 2015, news leaked that the celebrity wedding happened and that Gwyneth Paltrow and Robin Antin were there. Rocker Madden opened up for Diaz’s birthday with a sweet Instagram post calling her his “One & Only. True Love.”
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
When someone told Eva Mendes that she ought to get out more with hubby Ryan Gosling, she replied, “I’m good. Rather be home with my man than anywhere else in the world.” And that’s where they’ve stayed, apparently. We didn’t even know the couple was having a baby until their first daughter was born.
They met in 2011 on the set of the film "The Place Beyond the Pines." They were spotted together on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival and at the New York City premiere of the film. And that’s pretty much it.
Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford
This couple has been so low-key that few know they have been married since 2012. Carey Mulligan told "Vogue" a few years ago that the Mumford & Sons singer was hers and she didn't want to share. But their story is too adorable to keep quiet. Mulligan met Marcus Mumford at church camp when they were kids.
They kept in touch by post for years. When the former pen pals ran into each other again at a party in 2011, a romance sparked. They tumbled into love with a flurry of love letters. Now, they share two children.
Emma Stone and Dave McCary
Emma Stone and "Saturday Night Live" writer Dave McCary have been extremely private about their relationship. They met at the SNL studio in 2016. That was the third time, you may recall, that Emma Stone hosted. This time, McCary directed, and, by the end, the two connected. Not a peep for two years.
Since their public engagement announcement on Instagram, in march 2021 they had their first baby girl. Being relatively private, Emma and Dave are not seen publicly very often, making us check online every now and then for their relevant statute.
