Relationships in Hollywood never really last. Fame, money, schedules and often egos play a large role in many of the high profile splits. However, when they were together, people couldn’t even conceive them splitting as they would constantly gush about one another and say things that would have anyone melting.
While some of these couples stood the test of time and proved all their relationship haters wrong, words were not enough for the others and despite saying the sweetest of things, irreconcilable differences got the better of them. Nonetheless, these declarations of love will have your heart bursting.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively starred opposite one another in The Green Lantern, but it wasn’t until years later that their close friendship blossomed into love. They are one of the couples that will constantly make fun of each other on social media, but it’s what keeps their relationship light hearted and hilarious.
Ryan gushed of his gorgeous wife “She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy.” Blake returned the favor, adding “I knew he would always be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing to me.”
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt
Not just a married couple but also co-stars, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are a long-lasting Hollywood couple and are coming up on their 10-year anniversary, which is practically 40 years for celebrities. Speaking of his loving wife, John couldn’t help but explain all the things he appreciated and adored of Emily, explaining “The best days of my life started when I met my wife — that’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card.
She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league.” He told another interviewer that “My wife is my hero in every single way.” If that doesn’t have you crying we don’t know what will.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have one of the funniest relationships in Hollywood as Chrissy is considered somewhat of a troll on social media. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind, will call out people and more often than not, John is the butt of her jokes. But this is exactly what the Grammy winning Legend loves about her as he explained “I fell in love with her over the phone because she is good with those 140 characters! We were texting a lot, and I started to see her sense of humor.
We would talk on the phone, and I started to fall in love with how engaging and witty and funny she is, and I think that’s when I really started to know that this was the kind of person I wanted to around a lot.” An Italian wedding and two kids later, Chrissy and John are more in love than ever.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have made their own rules in their relationship and not conformed to societal norms when it comes to official marriage and perhaps that’s why they have lasted and been together for over 35 years. When Russell got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017, he couldn’t help but accredit Goldie for his success and being a consistent rock in his life.
He gushed about his life partner, “Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Lauren Hashian
He might have a hard exterior but The Rock is just a softie when it comes to his girlfriend Lauren. The couple have been together for over a decade and share an adorable daughter, but that’s not all they share in life. The Rock explained that “We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn’t mentioned and my daughter isn’t mentioned.
I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there.” When asked about Hashian’s best qualities, Johnson explained “She embraced and loved me at my very worst and lifted me up to be my very best.” Nothing more you can do as a partner!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
Actress Cameron Diaz and rocker Benji Madden were a very unlikely couple, but they seem to mesh perfectly. They live their lives very much under the radar with Cameron being so happy at home that she decided to put her career on hiatus to focus on her wonderful family.
She told Bravo boss Andy Cohen that “nothing matters” now that she has Benji as her husband and went onto Instagram to say “He makes me proud everyday. One day it might be how generous and giving, another how gentle and thoughtful. Or when he is fiercely protective of the people he loves and cares about…And everyday single day I am so incredibly proud of his integrity as a human being.”
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum
Channing and Jenna first got together when they starred as lovers in dance movie Step Up, and their on-screen chemistry translated off-screen. The Hollywood life can be crazy and stressful and Channing admitted “Jenna puts everything in perspective for me, always. I’ll find myself spinning out or angry or whatever, or even happy, and she always somehow ends up righting the ship.”
Channing even wrote an adorable post about Jenna on Instagram for Mother’s Day how she could do it all and was an incredible mother and wife. Sadly, this love came to an end in 2018 and fans were shocked when this amazing couple announced they had split.
George and Amal Clooney
People thought that George Clooney would forever be the most eligible bachelor until Amal came into his life and blew him away. For George to give up his single life, people expected Amal to be the real deal, but no one could describe her better than George himself.
In his 2015 Golden Globes acceptance speech, he gushed of her “It’s a humbling thing when you find someone to love, even better if you’ve been waiting your whole life, and when your whole life is 53 years. Amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, I couldn’t be more proud to be your husband.” Two years later, the couple welcomed twins together.
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Chris Pratt and Anna Faris got married in 2009 and became one of Hollywood’s greatest couples. They even starred alongside each other in films but off-screen, they were inherently private. When Pratt was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017, Anna gave a heartfelt speech, saying “I know that if our circumstances were different and we weren’t as fortunate to be standing here and living our Hollywood life, we would be happy in the woods together, I think.”
In thanking his wife, Pratt added, “With every challenge, with every day, week, month, decade, we become more bonded. You make me laugh like nobody else. You’re very caring, and thank you for your trust and your sacrifice — and for your dedication and your heart.” Unfortunately, the couple split in 2017 and Pratt is now married to Katherine Schwarznegger.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most adored and cherished celebrities in America and for good reason. Ellen and wife Portia De Rossi have been married since 2008 and are more in love than ever. Ellen said of Portia “I’m so grateful for the love in my life.
Because not everybody finds that. Not everybody finds that best friend, Portia and I constantly say to each other, ‘We are so lucky.’ Sometimes it’s lying in bed at night before I go to sleep, and I just say ‘thank you’ to whatever, whoever is out there.” Ellen also admitted it took her a long time to find someone that she knew was really her person.
Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon
Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon are a prime example of a Hollywood couple who have stood the test of time and not succumbed to the relationship pressures of Hollywood. They have been married since 1988 and Kyra admitted she still gets butterflies when he walks into the room.
She explained of Kevin, “When he walks into a room, I’m still… I mean, my heart gets a little fluttery and I think, ‘Oh! He’s so cute. He’s so hot!’ That’s literally the first thing I think. You can ask people on the set — it’s palpable. He’s still a mystery to me. And getting older together is scary and exciting.”
Beyonce and Jay Z
Known as hip hop royalty, Beyonce and Jay Z are one of the most successful and prominent couples in the music industry. Both hugely successful artists, it seemed like a match made in heaven when they got together. Despite the couple keeping most of their private life out of the spotlight, Beyonce opened up to Oprah Winfrey about Jay, adding “I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man.
It just gives me such a foundation…. He has helped me on so many levels. We were friends first, for a year and a half, before we went on any date. On the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And someone that is honest.” These statements were made before the 2017 claims of Jay Z cheating on Beyonce but the couple worked out their issues and are still together.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
Sparks flew when Gwen and Blake joined as judges on The Voice, leading both of their relationships to break down. They became official in 2015 and have been inseparable ever since, with Blake gushing about Gwen more often than not. Speaking about his love, he said “Being in the vicinity of her is unbelievable.
Oh my God, at some point, it kinda builds your ego up when you walk into a room with Gwen. But also it’s a crushing blow to your ego when you realize all the cheers and people shouting at you. You realize it’s not you, it’s her! But it’s still exciting at the same time.”
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
Hugh Jackman has been with wife Deborra for over 20 years and their love shows no signs of slowing down. The Australian couple met on the set of TV series Correlli and they immediately fell in love. When Ellen Degeneres asked Hugh about his relationship with Deborra, he replied that it “gets better and better, I can honestly say that….
She’s the greatest thing that ever happened to me…. I’m kind of really grateful that I met her before anything kind of happened [in my career]. Everything that’s happened in my career and onscreen, offscreen, we’ve always done it together.” There is no denying that Deborra is the rock in Hugh’s life.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Will Smith is one of the biggest actors in the world and his relationship with Jada has always been in the press, just not always for positive things. The couple have been married since 1997 but have had plenty of ups and downs along the way. However, they weathered through the storm together and have both gushed about one another and their positive developments.
Will said of the Red Table Talk host “Jada is magical. Part of why I love her is things happen in a way they shouldn’t happen, they shouldn’t go that way. She has this magical power.” Both Will and Jada opened up on her Facebook show to note their struggles and how they got through them.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West
After being friends for over 10 years, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married in 2014 and went on to have four children together. As one of the most talked about and photographed couples in the world, Kim and Kanye’s relationship has blossomed in front of the world, and Kanye West has never been one to hold back in talking about his feelings.
Kanye explained “Family time is what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family, she gave me a support system.” He later added “she’s awesome, and she looks amazing and she’s a sweet person, it’s just too many benefits in stuff. It’s an unfair level of awesomeness in one person. To be that smart, to be that nice. To be blatantly fine as hell. One of the most beautiful people of all time. It’s not hard to wake up to.”
Kevin Hart and Eniko Parish
Kevin Hart might be one of the most famous comedians around right now, but when it comes to his wife, Eniko, he knows how to tone down thee humour and be honest and open. “I found somebody who put a smile on my face. I found somebody who genuinely made me happy which people don’t realize is not an easy task.
He added, “Eniko is a strong woman in my life… and the way that she stepped up to the plate and just accepted me for who I am, accepted me as a man coming in with kids and not even blinking an eye. I think she’s shown that she’s a woman who has my back.” The couple went through a rocky patch this year when Kevin’s affair came out but the comedian publicly apologized to his wife and kids to get things back on track.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
A-list actress Anne Hathaway isn’t one to share much of her personal life with the world and keeps it as under wraps as she possibly can. Her husband Adam is a producer and jewelry designer and the couple met at the Palm Springs Film Festival with Anne admitting it was love at first sight.
Speaking of her loving husband, Anne admitted “He changed my ability to be in the world comfortably. I think the accepted narrative now is that we, as women, don’t need anybody. But I need my husband. His unique and specific love has changed me.” The couple just announced they are expecting their second baby soon.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
Justin Timberlake had his fair share of public relationships, but when he met Jessica Biel he knew she was the one. In 2013, he told Ellen Degeneres “Every once in awhile I can catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking and I have this moment where I’m like, “If you never make a good decision… if you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you made one really good decision because she’s just like … it’s nice to marry your friend. It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.”
Jessica couldn’t help but gush about her popstar beau adding “You make me laugh. You make me smile. You make me LOVE. You make me want to be BETTER.” The couple are loving parents to their son Silas and have been married since 2012.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
They might be under the radar in their relationship, but between them, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have an incredible amount of talent. After meeting as teenagers, the couple have had a long-standing relationship and have been one of the most famous couples in music.
Not only did Swizz get Alicia’s face tattooed on his arm, but Alicia had some loving words to say about her husband. She explained “He’s really, really intelligent and knows so many interesting things, he really loves to live life and he showed me how to live life in a beautiful way.” The couple have two children together and Swizz has three more from a previous relationship.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are a perfect example of a Hollywood couple who are honest and open with their fans and admit that marriage isn’t all sunshine and roses. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to get through the hard times, and Kristen admitted they have been through it all. She said of Dax “He’s a wonderful father, he knows the value of things.
He was an addict for many, many years and he pulled himself out of it, and he’s been sober for 11, 12 years now. And he knows how many times he’s messed up and how many times he’s been really closing to losing everything.” She added of working through things together “We both take responsibility when we are wrong, and I think it is easy to work with him because I married him, because I enjoy spending time with him and I trust him.” Honesty is the best policy!
David and Victoria Beckham
When it comes to balance, partnership and love, it seems as though the Beckhams have got it down to a tee. When Victoria was asked how she and David juggle their careers and family life, she admitted “I try really, really hard. I try hardest to be the best mother, I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David.
I have the support of an incredible husband. We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children, when I’m away he’s the one doing the school run and doing the cooking.” David has returned the favor about Victoria, noting her work ethic and as well as being an incredible mother to their children.
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
Tom Hank and Rita Wilson’s marriage has lasted nearly 30 years which is almost unheard of in Hollywood. Their love has stood the test of time and they have never once let fame and pressure get the better of their relationship.
Hanks admitted that once he met Rita, he finally understood what he wanted from a relationship, explaining “I must say that when I met Rita, I thought, ‘Oh, this is what it’s supposed to be like when you are married to someone. It’s supposed to be this carefree and easy and, you know, oddly enough, weighty.” Their relationship has been so successful that they have even managed to work together in the movie industry which is a testament in itself.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck
They might be exes now, but back when Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were happily married, it seemed like it really was forever. Garner only had the most loving and affectionate things to say about her director and actor husband, adding “He’s the love of my life.
What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow.” Sadly, their love wasn’t to last and the two announced their split in 2015 and eventually divorced in 2018.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso
Matt Damon is one of the biggest actors in Hollywood and his status earned him some successful girlfriends over the years including Penelope Cruz, Claire Danes and Minnie Driver to name a few. However, everything changed when he met his wife Luciana.
He explained, “I got lucky meeting her, I think marriage is incredibly difficult because it’s so hard to have that one partner who is everything. Looking at it objectively, it seems an insane idea. So it’s not that I love marriage in general, it’s that I love being married to her. And that’s the difference. And I just got lucky. I sure did.” The adorable couple have been married since 2005 and have gone from strength to strength ever since.
Oprah and Stedman Graham
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most successful self-made billionaires in the world and aside from having multiple lucrative businesses, she has also had a long-term relationship with Stedman Graham that has stood the test of time. The reason for the longevity? Oprah admitted the key to their happiness is the fact that they decided not to get married.
She explained “We would not have stayed together, because marriage requires a different way of being in this world. His interpretation of what it means to be a husband and what it would mean for me to be a wife would have been pretty traditional, and I would not have been able to fit into that.” Just like Goldie Hawn, this approach to marriage and love seems to be a successful one.
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth is undoubtedly one of the most handsome and hilarious actors in Hollywood and his relationship with wife Elsa Pataky will have you melting. Chris has often spoken about how much he adores his wife of nearly 10 years and explained how to keep it exciting and fresh, adding “Make sure you have date night even if it’s once in a blue moon, because most of the time you’re just too tired and you’d actually prefer to sleep, I don’t [write love letters], but maybe I should.
There’s no shortage of how much I tell her I love her.” The couple have three children together and live on the Gold Coast of Australia while Chris often travels around the world to shoot in huge movie roles.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
Talk show host Kelly Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos for 23-years and all of that time together has just made the couple stronger. She admitted that things can get really hard in life and marriage and having someone there to support, love and care for you is one of the most important things.
She explained “There’s going to be times where you look at each other like ‘I can’t believe I live with you, that’s what you want in life, to have a good companion, somebody that loves you, that listens to you and is your equal in every way.” Even though the couple have their hands full with three children, they still make the effort and make time for each other.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Reese Witherspoon has found herself unlucky in love over the years and the tabloids have often made her public relationships even harder. However, things turned around for Reese when she married her second husband Jim and is incredibly thankful for him as a partner. She gushed about him, “Every day, I’m so thankful to have this amazing man as my partner. I would not be where I am in this life if I didn’t have his constant encouragement and complete support,” she wrote.
“He changes diapers, makes carpool runs and always has time to give me a much needed pep talk … (He makes a really good latte too!)” The couple have been married since 2011 and have one son together.
Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade
Actress Gabrielle Union married pro-basketball player Dwayne Wade in 2014 after meeting seven years prior. Their big age gap doesn’t seem to mean anything and Union explained “I married a guy almost 10 years younger than me, and I assumed I would be the teacher, and here I am the pupil learning and being motivated by his work ethic, I work my butt off, but he … every day he gets up and delivers again and again and again, and for his age, in his industry, he’s like a T-Rex basically.
He inspires me. He inspires the kids. So we just try to keep up with Dad.” In 2018, they welcome a daughter together, but not before Union opened up about her heartbreaking struggle of having around nine miscarriages.
Ciara and Russell Wilson
Ciara and Russell Wilson got married in 2016 and wasted no time in having babies, welcoming their daughter in 2017. The couple have been the image of love ever since they got together with Ciara gushing, “My foundation of my life is full of love, and I believe when you have love you can conquer anything in the world.
Love breeds confidence. I feel the most confident self that I’ve ever been, and with that being said I feel supercharged and ready for my task ahead.” In her comments about Russell, she noted how the football player inspires her everyday to be the best she can be.
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has had quite the colorful dating history and before he found his Victoria’s Secret model love, Behati, he was actually with another one of the Victoria Secret models. However, when he began dating Behati, everything changed for Adam and he knew she was the one he was supposed to be with.
He said ““I just knew. It’s as simple as that. It sounds really stupid, but nothing else mattered and this was the only thing in the world that mattered.” His comments seemed to be true and the couple are married with two beautiful daughters today.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are one of the most private couples in Hollywood and their relationship has been kept very much under wraps. After appearing as co stars in The Place Beyond The Pines, the couple walked the red carpet together, but just as co stars, and to this day, have not attended an official event together. However, the couple often spoken on their love for one another and their two daughters together.
Eva explained that her reason for changing her opinion on having children, “Ryan Gosling happened. I mean falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have… not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.” Speaking on having three girls in the house, Ryan explained ““It’s heaven, it’s like walking through a field of flowers everyday – I live with angels.”
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley and Liam met on the set of The Last Song and went on to have a 10 year love story that had many ups and downs, breakups and makeups along the way. However, in Christmas 2018, the couple decided to get married and have a low key ceremony at home with just their family. On his birthday, Miley gushed of her husband “I’m proud of the person you have become and look forward to all the good we will contribute ToGeThEr in the future.
You and Me baby ….. let’s take this dark place head on and shine through with the light of L.O.V.E. Thank you for giving me the happiest days of my life. Yours truly, M.” Despite riding the storm for so long and finally getting their happy ending, it all came crashing down in 2019 when the couple announced their split after 8 months of marriage.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex haven’t had the easiest time in the public eye with so much scrutiny surrounding them and negative stories about the personality of the American actress. However, Prince Harry has always stood up and defended his wife, claiming that she is not the nasty person they portray her to be in the media.
When they first became engaged in 2017, he gushed of his fiancée “The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that all of the stars were aligned, everything was just perfect, [there] was this beautiful woman, who just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life [and] I fell into her life.” Unlike many other royals, Harry and Meghan haven’t held back in their feelings about one another.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were initially a very unlikely couple, but it was soon evident that this was the real deal and they were totally in love. After a whirlwind romance, Nick got down on one knee and proposed to the Indian actress. The couple had a wedding extravaganza in India with four wedding receptions.
Speaking of their first date, Nick gushed “She walks into the Chateau, and I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and understanding about this next chapter of my life,” he later added about Priyanka, “I knew once we locked in together that I had a partner for life and a teammate, someone I could walk through the good times and the bad times with, and that was the key. I’m blushing now!”

We are meant to be, and how much you mean to me cannot be put into words.” He went on to add, “Like you there is none other. Words will never do justice to what the last two years have meant to me. Thank you for always being you, for your unwavering support and unconditional love.”

I think it’s a wonderful institution and it’s the most important decision you make.” She continued “Life is filled with highs and lows, and you have a best friend to share it with you.” As for her overall marriage to Sacha, Isla gushed “It’s like winning the lottery, having a good partner.”

I’m so glad I’m in this world.’”
The following year, Keith added about his wife “She’s my best friend. I’ve never had anybody on the planet that knows me as well as she does. I would love to have been worthy of somebody like Nic, but I was a long way from it when we met. Somehow we just found there was love there, real love. I literally just feel like the luckiest guy on the planet.” This is what true love looks and sounds like!
