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.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have been married since 2006 and are always the look of love on the red carpet. While they keep much of their private life under wraps, they haven’t been afraid to express their love for one another whenever they are given the chance. In 2015, Nicole was watching Keith play music and she said “”I looked up at him at one point and I saw his tattoos and his foot going, and he had the guitar, and I was like, ‘God, I love that man. 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!
